Every once in a while you come across a work that requires a bit more in the way of meditation and contemplation. Sufi books generally will have this characteristic, but some demand a concentration and internal focus that cannot necessarily be realized at all moments of the day. This is one of those books. I read it in the early morning hours just after waking up, when I had the most mental clarity and felt my surroundings most at peace. It’s an amazingly insightful and penetrating book on the e ...more

مردمان اندر تحقیق این اسم، بسیار سخن گفته اند و کتب ساخته. گروهی گفته اند: که صوفی را، از آن جهت صوفی خوانند که، جامه ی صوف دارد. و گروهی گفته اند: که بدان صوفی خوانند، که اندر صف اول باشند. و گروهی گفته اند: که بدان صوفی خواند، که تولی به اصحاب صفّه کنند. و گروهی گفته اند: که این اسم از صفا مشتق است. اما بر مقتضی لغت، از این معانی بعید می باشد. پس، صفا در جمله محمود باشد، و ضد آن کدر بود. رسول(صلعم) گفته است: ذهب صفوالدنیا و بقی کدرها. و نام لطایف اشیا، صفو آن چیز باشد، و نام کثایف اشیا کدر آن ...more

This is the most substantial and in-depth book on Sufism I have ever read. You won't find any 'feel good' flim flam in this one.

My favorite book outside of the Quran. I recommend the one with the translation and special commentary by Maulana Wahid Bakhsh Rabbani.

This is a very profound, deep, book. It has to be read a number of times to truly understand some of the deep concepts covered. I found myself lost at times with the mix of arabic terms and deep concepts. At the same time I felt a sense of shame for not knowing basic concepts like Wahdat-ul-Wujud.

The book has a mystical quality that opens up on the reader as one

I love how many myths and misconceptions regarding sufism are straight away cleared up right at the start of the book. Al-Hajveri was definitely a great mind and tackles philosophical issues of the self from multiple angles encompassing all different schools of thoughts before adding his own opinion. A very interesting read and meant for people who need an introduction to this field (the purpose of the book is to serve as a manual)

Good translation, and overall helpful commentary. Rabbani attempts to assert, however, that Hujwiri embraces a full "Wahdat al-Wujud" ("unity of Essence") stance, which strikes me as both anachronistic as well as stretching Hujwiri's words beyond what he means. I'd still join Carl Ernst in suggesting that it's nonetheless well worth the examination.
