Product Description

Book Cover May Vary [Paperback - 224 pages]           by Carl W. Ernst and Bruce B. Lawrence  


 
Description 
The Chishti Sufi order has been the most widespread and popular of all Sufi traditions since the twelfth-century.

Sufi Martyrs of Love offers a critical perspective on Western attitudes towards Islam and Sufism, clarifying its contemporary importance, both in the West and in traditional Sufi homelands.

Finally, it provides access to the voices of Sufi authorities, through the translation of texts being offered in English for the first time.
