The Way of the Sufi

by Idries Shah
4.5 out of 5
Author Idries Shah
Publisher Amaryllis
Synopsis The Way of the Sufi is perhaps Idries Shah's best known work. An enjoyable introduction to the subject, it includes brief portraits of well-known Islamic figures he believed to be Sufi masters, including Ghazzali of Persia, Omar Khayyam of Rubaiyat fame, Attar of Nishapur (author of Conference of the Birds ), Ibn El-Arabi of Spain, Saadi of Shiraz (author of The Rose Garden), Hakim Sanai and Jalaludin Rumi (author of the famous Masnavi or Couplets of Inner Meaning). The four main Sufi orders, including the Chishti, Qadiri, Suhrawardi and Naqshbandi, are also described. The work's real power, however, is an anthology of hundreds of Sufi or dervish tales, riddles and sayings which could take a lifetime to fully appreciate and understand.
