Salaam and Greetings of Peace:
Since in the Ocean of Divine Unity neither “I” nor “you” exists,
what meaning can “man” or “woman” possibly have?
Sufi Women presents the biographies and anecdotes of over one hundred women followers and guides of various Sufi orders. Compiled from a vast range of primary sources in Arabic and Persian, and exclusively devoted to female spirituality and the feminine dimension of Sufism, these biographies demonstrate that in the inner life of Sufis there is no difference between men and women.
Many readers will already be familiar with Rabi’a al-Adawiya, but there are so many more worth knowing, whose lives were filled only with love and devotion to God. And they are quietly among you even now, for those that have eyes to see.
