About the Author

The late Dr Lings, formerly Keeper of Oriental Manuscript in the British Museum and the British Library, is the author of two works on Islamic mysticism, The Book of Certainty and A Sufi Saint of the Twentieth Century, both published by the Islamic Texts Society. His Muhammad: His Life Based on the Earliest Sources, also published by the Islamic Texts Society, has been internationally acclaimed as a masterpiece.

Reviews

'The discussion of Sufi aims, psychology, doctrine and method is original (many previously untranslated texts are cited), sensitive and readable. The mood of Sufism is conveyed here with a clarity that is rare, even unique, yet is done in a responsible, non-proselytizing manner.'
'It is an invaluable contribution to the study of the subject and may well become a standard textbook... Highly recommended.'
'He has treated all the most important features of Sufism with a degree of profundity and understanding rarely to be found among modern writers.'
'The book is a sheer delight to read, and is here recommended unreservedly to the adept as well as to the layman.'
