Rabia Basri

A valuable addition to my collection indeed as the author claimed its the only detailed biography available of the respectable Rabia Basri Rehamtullahe Alayehaa. The goal o the Sufi quest was union with the Divine, and the Sufi seeker after God, having renounced this world and its attraction being purged of Self and its desires, inflamed with a passion of love of God, journeyed ever onward, looking toward the final purpose, through the life of illumination, with its ecstasies and raptures, and the higher life of contemplation, until at last he achieved the heavenly gnosis and attained to the Vision of God, in which the lover might become one with the Beloved, and abide in Him for ever.


No trivia or quizzes yet. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. The high position attained by the women Sufis is attested further by the fact that the Sufis themselves give to a woman the first place among the earliest Muhammadan mystics and have chosen her to be the representative of the first development of mysticism in Islam. 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.

There is repetition of incidents and alot of information on Sufism in general including mentioning stories of other Sufi Saints of her era, so there is less about her life in particular and more on other stuff.
