'umar Al-suhrawardi and the Rise of the Islamic Mystical Brotherhoods (Islamic History and Civilization)

Explore the critical period in Sufism's development during the early thirteenth century with this groundbreaking examination of a pivotal figure in the field. Using previously undiscovered sources, the book delves into the life and work of scholar, mystic, and statesman Umar al-Suhraward. Discover how his universalizing Sufi system allowed for novel modes of participation in Sufi religiosity and provided a framework for the presence of intentional Sufi communities in the late-medieval Islamic world.
