Mystical Dimensions of Islam by Annemarie Schimmel

Annemarie Schimmel was a renowned German scholar of Islam. Amongst many others, this book explores the theme tasawwuf/sufism. Mystical Dimensions of Islam presents, for the first time, a balanced historical treatment of the transnational phenomenon of Sufism—Islamic mysticism—from its beginnings through the nineteenth century. Through her sensitivity and deep understanding of the subject, Annemarie Schimmel, an eminent scholar of Eastern religions, draws the reader into the mood, the vision, the way of the Sufi in a manner that adds an essential ingredient to her analysis of the history of Sufism.

After exploring the origins of the mystical movement in the meditations of orthodox Muslims on the Koran and the prophetic tradition, the author then discusses the development of its different stages, including classical voluntarism and postclassical theosophical mystical trends. Particular emphasis is placed on spiritual education, the different ways of leading the mystic toward the existential realization of the profound mystery of the profession of faith that “there is no deity but God.” Sufi psychology and Sufi orders and fraternities are comprehensively explored.

Dear bloggers,

The fact that we are bloggers shows that we are very much into expressing ourselves through words and let our thoughts be known to the general public and/or to our circle of friends. We are in this blogsphere because we enjoy reading one another’s blog, commenting on them and form our own social network of bloggers with the same interest.

However, good old traditional hobby of reading a real good book die hard. As much as we are into blogging, we are also committed to keep to the age old tradition of reading for information and knowledge- from real books. We value intellectual properties of writers who publish their work as we recognise the tremendous amount of effort they put in for their research just so that the knowledge they possess will be passed on from generations to generations.

Islamic Book Well was set up by people who are very passionate about reading and would love to share some of the good books that we have in our possession. We have read some, if not most of them. Alhamdulillah, we were able to get distribution rights from the publisher of these books to be the online distributors of the titles we recommend for readings. In these tough times of high petrol prices, why not let your fingers do the buying and safe that trip to the book store? If you need a good English medium Islamic themed book, come to us and we shall try all our might to help you get hold of what you want or need and send it directly to your doorstep !

So bloggers, do support us and we will try our best to send knowledge to you the fastest and the cheapest ways possible, insya Allah.
