About the Author:

Nicholson (1868-1945), who translated many important works of Sufism--notably the definitive version of Rumi's "Mathnawi," was among the leading English Islamic scholars of the 20th century.

English Orientalist, lecturer in Persian and Sir Thomas Adams professor of Arabic at Cambridge University, he was a foremost scholar in the field of Islamic literature and mysticism. He was born at Keighley, Yorkshire in 1868. His "Literary of the Arabs" (1907) remains a standard work on the subject in English, while his many text editions and translations of Sufi writings, culminating in his eight-volume "Mathnawi of Jalalu'ddim Rumi," advanced the study of Muslim mystics to an eminent degree. He combined exact scholarship with notable literary gifts; some of his versions of Arabic and Persian poetry qualify him as a poet himself.

Review:

Long considered one of the classic texts in the field respected by both scholars and those ... interest[ed] in [Islamic] mysticism. -- From a review in the online journal Living Tradition

Nicholson's Mystics of Islam was the first book in the West to offer a lucid ... sympathetic picture of Islamic mysticism. -- Annnemarie Schimmel, Professor Emeritus, Harvard University and author of Mystical Dimensions of Islam

Book Description World Wisdom Books, United States, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English. Brand new Book. Sufism is the heart of the Islamic tradition. Its teachings, which synthesize the ways of knowledge and love, are founded upon many of the most beautiful verses of the Quran and the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad. Through an unbroken succession of wise and ecstatic voices - many of whom were among the greatest poets of both the Arabic and Persian languages - the doctrine of Sufism has been a constant fountain of spiritual illumination throughout its long history for seekers both within and outside Islam. The Mystics Of Islam, first published in 1914, has long been recognized as a classic and definitive introduction to the message of Sufism. In this short but comprehensive work, R.A. Nicholson - who was one of the greatest Islamic scholars of the early 20th century - provides the general reader with an easy approach to the study of Islamic mysticism. He gives a broad outline of Sufism and describes the key principles, methods and characteristic features of the inner life as it has been lived by Muslims of every class and condition from the 8th century onwards. Many quotations are given, mainly in the author's own fine translations from the original Arabic and Persian. Seller Inventory # ANB9780941532488
