This book is an English translation of selection from the Tadhkara. In this volume will be found saying sixty-two saints of the highest order and incidents of their lives.
Brought up in a Sufi ambiance, the author of this work, Faridu’d-Din Attar (1145-1221), was an apothecary who lived near Nishapur. Attar, whom legend describes as having taken to the Sufi path in earnest after he witnessed a dervish surrender his soul outside his shop, went on to become one of the most famous Sufi poets in history, best known for his classical work the Mantiqu’t-Tair.

Farid al-Din ‘Attar (d. 1221 CE) was the principal Muslim mystic poet of the second half of the 12th century, whose formative influence was acknowledged by his great successor Jalal al-Din Rumi. Best known for his often-translated masterpiece Mantiq al-tayr or The Conference of the Birds, his verse is still considered to be the finest example of Sufi poetry in the Persian language after that of Rumi.
