Studies in Islamic Mysticism By Reynold A. Nicholson
Paperback: $17.88

The Absolute Essence (Dhát), or the Essence of God, is that to which names and attributes belong in their real nature, not as they appear in existence 1. It denotes the self (nafs) of God... More > whereby He exists, for He is self-subsistent. It is endowed with all the names and ideas which His perfection demands. Amongst these are infinity and incomprehensibility. No words can express or hint what the Essence is, since it has no opposite or like. In its absoluteness it annuls all the contradictions which, as the universal ground of individualisation, it includes 2. I am convinced that It (the Essence) is non-existence, since by existence It was manifested 3. Thought hath beheld It from afar as a power exerting itself in existence. It is not other than a wall, wherein is set for thee a store of treasures. I am that wall, and It is the hidden treasure—hidden in order that I may find it by digging.< Less

Islamic Mysticism and the Bektashi Path By Baba Rexheb
Hardcover: $42.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
"The Bektashi Way is profoundly simple yet perplexingly complex, striking in its boldness yet gracious in its subtlety; consequently, while shining forth brightly it still is seemingly cloaked... More > in obscurity. There have been attempts to gather its history, characteristic ideas, and observable aspects together and to elucidate its inner wisdom in prose, but few of these attempts have been made by knowledgeable insiders, and even fewer of these have been made in English. This full translation of Baba Rexheb’s Islamic Mysticism and the Bektashi Path from its original Albanian is thus a unique addition to the literature on Bektashism in English, and a boon to those who seek to know more about this clearly enigmatic way." --- Vafi Baba< Less
