The Assembleies of Al-Hariri: Fifty Encounters with the Shaykh Abu Zayd of Seruj
The Assemblies has been regarded for eight centuries as the greatest treasure in Arabic literature after the Koran. It is the inner thread of this amazing book which makes it a world classic: the tales and events mirror the antics of the human mind on its way through life. The last chapter, where the "rascal," after all his experiences, settles down to a devout Sufi life, gives the clue to this fascinating textbook of traditional psychology.
