This 1935 English translation of a classic Arabic text in SÅ«fÄ«sm, the mystical aspect of Islam, by A. J. Arberry preserves the beauty and simplicity of the original without departing from a literal translation. Little is known of the author of this treatise AbÅ« Bakr al-KalÄ bÄ dhÄ«, except that he was a lawyer and died in BukhÄ rÄ in about AD 990. This book is the work on which his fame rests, and is important because it is the earliest extant text to reconcile the position of SÅ«fÄ«sm and orthodox Islam. The book consists of five parts: a general introduction to the term SÅ«fÄ« and an enumeration of the names of the great SÅ«fÄ«s; a statements of the tenets of Islam, as accepted by the SÅ«fÄ«s; a discussion of the various 'stations' of the SÅ«fÄ«s; and a discussion of the various phenomena of SÅ«fÄ«sm. This is a superb English introduction to SÅ«fÄ«sm.
