It was my first book about Sufism. And it led me to a whole new world. I found a calligraphic image of Bismillah and tattoed it on my back! Sadia takes you through the history of Sufism, especially in South Asia, and allows a novice to understand some of the complex depth to the Sufi Saints and the legacies they have left behind. Beautiful poetry and engaging historical information.

The book is a nice read for someone needing an introduction to Islam and to Sufism in particular. It reads more like a commentary than a book but does well in what, I suppose, it set out to do. For me, it works more because of the facts rather than the prose, which seems too dry and mechanical except in some places.
