Muslim Saints and Mystics: Episodes from the Tadhkirat Al-Auliya' ('Memorial of the Saints')
Penguin Group (USA) Incorporated, 1990 - Religion - 287 pages
Farid Al-Din Attar was one of old Persias greatest poets. He appears to have died between a.d. 1220 and 1230. Of the very numerous epics and idylls ascribed to Attar perhaps nine may be recognized as authentic. Of these the most famous is the Manteq Altair, a subtle and charming allegory of the soulʹs progress towards God. This books is a collection of biographies of Sufis, Mystics and Muslims saints.
