5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to Sufism, 15 Dec 2014

(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: What is Sufism? (Islamic Texts Society) (Paperback)
Well written and simple to understand. This book gives a fine introduction to Sufism from its very beginnings, through its practices going on to the history of Sufism to the present day. Easier to read than Burckhard's book and perhaps more sympathetic than Smith or Nicholson's well worth a read for anyone with an interest in the Muslim religion.

Lings was a Muslim convert who spent many years studying Sufism and is probably best known for his biography of the Prophet Muhammed which won numerous awards for its quality and accuracy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dense but rewarding introduction tto a copmplex subject, 21 May 2003
By 
This review is from: What is Sufism? (Islamic Texts Society) (Paperback)
This book is best read with the help of an Imam or a Muqaddim (Sufi spiritual guide). As with many books on Sufism reading it on your own could lead to confusion. However apart from that proviso this book comes highly recommended and is a good text for the interested student.
