Description :


Tabaqat al-Sufiyyah is a biographical collection including sayings of one hundred esteemed Awliya and Sufiyyah.  This work is considered important because it was compiled by a great sufi scholar of his time Abu Abd al-Rahman al-Sulami, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, (d.412h). The Tabaqat al-Sufiyyah was also significant because it was the first such work to use isnad (detailed link/chain of authorities). This is a shorter work of Al-Sulami's Ta'rikh al-Sufiyyah which contains hagiographies of over 1000 sufiyyah.






Abu Abd al-Rahman al-Sulami [d.412h].


He is Abū ʿAbd al-Raḥmān Muḥammad ibn al-Ḥusayn ibn Musa al-Azdi al-Sulami, al-Naysaburi, alayhi ar-Rahman. He was born in Nishapur (arabic: Naysabur) (Persia) in 325 Hijri. It was the influence of Al-Sulami's grandfather which first drew him towards the ascetic doctrine. He travelled extensively throughout Khorasan and Iraq in his pursuit of hadith knowledge. Al-Sulami's education was also supported by a thorough training in religious law and theology, Ash'ari kalam in particular, which he learned from the Qadi Abu Bakr al-Baqillani [d.403/1013].  In fiqh, Al-Sulami followed the Shafi'i school. In Nishapur Al-Sulami became renowned as a Shafi'i scholar and a collector of traditions. He was a prolific author of many sciences but in paricular of tafsir, hadith and tasawwuf - who according to his biographers Al-Sulami wrote more than a hundred books and treatises over a period of some fifty years.


His books tended to deal with the more practical aspects of tasawwuf, like the Jawami Adab al-Sufiyya and 'Uyub al-Nafs wa-Mudawatuhu which focused on sufi customs and practices. Most of his works included citations from the Qur'an and Sunnah in support of orthodox Sufi behaviour.


Amongst his works were :

Tafsir:
---Haqa'iq al-Tafsir,
---Ziyadat Haqa'iq al-Tafsir,

Hadith:
---Kitab Adab al-Suhba wa-Husn al-'Ishra,

Tasawwuf:
---Ta'rikh al-Sufiyyah,
---Tabaqat al-Sufiyyah,
---Jawami Adab al-Suffiyah,
---'Uyub al-Nafs wa-Mudawatuhu,
---Kitab al-Futuwwa,
---Risalat al-Malamatiyya,
---Adab al-Faqr wa-Shara'ituhu,
---Sunan al-Sufiyyah.


Amongst his students were Abu'l -Qasim al-Qushayri [d.465/1073] who quotes Al-Sulami frequently in his famous al-Risala al-Qushayriyyah.


Abu Abd al-Rahman al-Sulami passed away in Nishapur in [d412/1021].
