MENUMENU - الكتاب
Islamic Mystical Poetry: Sufi verse from the mystics to Rumi
By: Mahmood, Jamal, (edited, translations, introduction)

Language: English


«Written from the ninth to the twentieth century, these poems represent the peak of Islamic mystical writing, from Rabia Basri to Mian Muhammad Baksh. Reflecting both private devotional love and attempt to attain union with God and become absorbed into the Divine, many poems in this edition are imbued with the symbols and metaphors that develop the central ideas of Sufism: the Lover, the Beloved, the Wine and the Tavern; while others are more personal and echo the poet's battle to leave earthly love behind.»

«These translations capture the passion of the original poetry and are accompanied by an introduction on Sufism and the common themes apparent in the works. This edition also includes suggested further reading and a glossary.» - Jacket
