Review:

This book belongs in every library that presently includes Kharg sh, Sulam, Hujv r, and Qushayr . Christopher Melchert in Journal of Islamic Studies 24.2 (2013), 204-206. doi:10.1093/jis/ett004 "The book, which is an important Sufi manual, is highly recommended for scholars and students in the field of Islamic studies, Middle Eastern Studies, Islamic thought, Iranian studies and Sufism. It is a valuable addition to the field." Eliza Tasbihi in The Muslim World Book Review 33.4 (2013). This meticulously executed critical edition of the Sufi treatise by an early Sufi master Ab l- asan al-S rj n (d. ca. 470/1077), who hailed from the Iranian province of Kirm n, is a welcome addition to the body of early Sufi literature that has been growing steadily over the past few years. [ ] Such a selfless dedication on the part of a scholar to making new Sufi texts available to his peers is highly commendable, to say the least. A mere look at the detailed and variegated indices appended to the critical text of Kit b al-Bay wa-l-saw d and to Orfali s other editions of Sufi works reveals the painstaking care and dedication that he and his co-editors have invested in their preparation. Alexander Knysh in Journal of Sufi Studies 3 (2014). Orfali and Saab are to be commended for their careful and nearly flawless Arabic text edition (pp. 1 411), which is followed by a series of useful indices citing the appropriate paragraphs for Qur anic quotations (pp. 413 24), hadith traditions (pp. 425 34), place names (pp. 435 36), individuals mentioned in the text (pp. 438 63), verses quoted in the text (pp. 465 74), and, finally, Sufi technical terms (pp. 475 506). Th. Emil Homerin in Journal of Near Eastern Studies 73.2 (2014), pp. 370-371. DOI: 10.1086/677269 the Orfali and Saab edition of Black and White is meticulously edited, and comes with a well-researched 50-page introduction which discusses Sirjani s life, his style of writing, the role of the hikam in his work, the structure of the work, his sources, as well as the manuscripts that were used. Atif Khalili in Studies in Religion / Sciences Religieuses Vol. 45, 1 (2016), p. 79-80."
