Product Description

This highly treasured book embodies the essence of spiritual life in the Islamic tradition. Its author, a well known Sufi saint and sage of the 13th century Egypt, lived during the flowering of new Sufi Orders. Muslims of every age have been drawn to the simple, aphoristic nature of The Book of Wisdom and havelearned its practical poetry by heart. This Arabic work is in three parts - the maxims, the treatises and the intimate conversations. Victor Danner's new translation maintains the timeless quality of this work as an ever-fresh affirmation of the life in the spirit.
Intimate Conversation. One of the majory early writers of PErsian mystical literature, Ansari is best loved for his collection of simple flowing sentences long used as a devotional handbook. In these very human dialogues with God, Ansari speaks of a love and longing for his Creator as well as the frustration at his own human frailty.
