A Collection of Sufi Rules of Conduct

By: Sulami, Abu Abd al-Rahman (937-1021 CE), Translated by Elena Biagi


Language: English


A compilation of Sufi beliefs and manners, this enlightening guide thoroughly explains Sufi thought and tradition. Filled with aphorisms and moral sayings collected by mystic Abu Abd al-Rahman al-Sulami from more than five generations of thinkers, this account seeks to correct the misleading interpretations of Islamic theology. The process of achieving an intimate relationship with God through virtuous conduct is explored in an informative and engaging manner. A glossary of Sufi vocabulary and an introduction to al-Sulam - placing the dervish in his historical, literary, and religious contex - are included for the spiritual novice.
