ESSENTIAL SUFISM Selections from the Saints and Sages
The definitive compendium of Sufi wisdom, Essential Sufism draws together more than three hundred fables, poems, and prayers that reveal the luminous spirit of Islamic mysticism. Selected works from ancient prophets and sages to contemporary Sufi poets and teachers– including Ibn ‘Arabi, Al-Ghazzālī, Hāfiz, ‘Attār, and of course, the enduringly popular Rūmī– make up a delectable feast of writings that will be as treasured by Sufi devotees as it will stir the souls of newcomers to this mystical, passionate faith.
