9780062514752: Essential Sufism

Foreword by Huston Smith Fans of the Sufi master Rumi will delight in this delectable feast of colourful, passionate Sufi writings and wisdom – including poems, essays, prayers, and meditations by the greatest Sufi writers and teachers of all time.

The first accessible and broad-ranging sourcebook of key Sufi writings, Essential Sufism draws together more than 300 stories, fables, aphorisms, short writings, and poems that reveal the heart of Islamic mysticism. Each selection has been chosen for the beauty and emotional impact that have made the work of Sufi writers such as Rumi so popular. The poets and writers chosen here – including Ibn Arabi, Al-Ghazzali, Hafiz, Attar, Koranic writers, and, of course, Rumi – will fascinate newcomers to Sufism, delight old hands, and provide a matchless overview of a mystical tradition that has touched a dozen cultures and endured for more than 1,500 years.
