About The Book

'The Women saints... certainly represent the greatest height to which Muslim womanhood has attained, and in reverence accorded them by Muslim men and the example which they offer to women lies a real hope for the attainment of higher standard, religious and social, for Muslim women of today.'

So writes Margaret Smith in this fascinating and scholarly work on Rabi'a of Basra, the early Muslim saint and true mystic who died in the year 801. A complete biography of this woman of unique personality did not appear until Dr. Smith, a distinguished scholar of Sufism, published this authoritative account of her life and teachings.

Discussing the place of Rabi'a in Islamic tradition, Dr. Smith also offers a survey of the female saints and mystics of the Muslim world, providing an unusual insight into women's impressive contribution to the rich heritage of Islam.

But whatever the situation may be, in the recollection of death there is reward and merit. For even the man engrossed in the world benefits from it by acquiring an aversion to this world, since it spoils his contentment and the fullness of his pleasure; and everything which spoils for man his pleasures and his appetites is one of the means of deliverance.  From :Al Ghazali on The Remembrance of Death & the Afterlife From Ihya Ilum Ud Din
