About The Book

Al-Junayd (d. circa 910) was one of the most significant figures of the formative period of Islamic mysticism in the ninth century, when Sufis were condemned as 'heretics'.

This rare study of the Sufi master is divided into three parts:-

  • The first containing an account of his life and works.
  • In the second part, his doctrines on Tawhid (Unity of God), Mithaq (Divine Covenant), Fana (Dissolution in the Divine Presence), and Sahw (Mystical Sobriety) are discussed.
  • The third part has a translation of his 'Letters', or Rasa'il.
     

Al-Junayd ibn Muhammad ibn al-Junayd, Abu al-Qasim al-Qawariri al-Khazzaz al-Nahawandi al-Baghdadi al-Shafi`i (d. 298).  shaykh of the Sufis  He is referred to by the sufis as sayyid-ut taifa i.e. the leader of the group. He lived and died in the city of Baghdad. He laid the groundwork for "sober" mysticism in contrast to that of "God-intoxicated" Sufis like al-Hallaj, Bayazid Bistami and Abu Sa`eed Abul-Khayr.
