Abu Ishaq Shami is one of the first among the Sufi Chishti Order to call himself Chisti (of Chisht). The name Shami implies he came from Syria or even from Damascus (ash-Sham). Abu Ishaq Shami is supposedly to have met a Sufi who directed him to settle in Chisht, and accordingly he is known as Abu Ishaq Shami Chishti. He died in 940 in Damascus and lies buried on Mount Qasiyun, where later on also Ibn Arabi was buried. Looking at the date of his death it is considered that the Chishti Order is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, existing Sufi order. However according to most of the Sufi orders it is considered that their origins are directly from the time period of the Prophet Muhammad and the Prophet himself.show more
