Ivan Granger
Iraqi bridged several Sufi traditions and traveled through much of the Muslim world. Born in Iran (not Iraq), he became a member of an important Sufi order in India/Pakistan. For political reasons, he escaped to Turkey. There he studied the philosophy of Ibn Arabi, inspiring his stunning “Divine Flashes” — spiritual commentaries, peppered with short poetic verses. Very highly recommended!
The writings of a Sufi contemporary of Rumi. Focuses on achieving union with the Divine. I had never heard of Iraqi before, but the introduction provides an excellent context for his writings. It also includes a critical essay explaining the mystical writings.
startlingly beautiful commentary on the Fusus and after Conference of the Birds one of the works nearest to my heart
