Long considered one of the classic texts in the field respected by both scholars and those ... interest[ed] in [Islamic] mysticism. -- From a review in the online journal Living Tradition

Nicholson's Mystics of Islam was the first book in the West to offer a lucid ... sympathetic picture of Islamic mysticism. -- Annnemarie Schimmel, Professor Emeritus, Harvard University and author of Mystical Dimensions of Islam
