Details: Jesus in the Eyes of the Sufis -
[A5] Paperback - 132 pages,
by Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh,
Published by Khaniqahi Nimatullahi Sufi Order.



Description :

Dr. Nurbakhsh presents here a wealth of stories and poems about Jesus, peace be upon him, many of which are translated into English for the first time from the original Arabic and Persian Sufi sources. They represent the profound reverence that Sufis for centuries have felt for Jesus, regarding him as a symbol of love and the perfect master.


The enthusiastic attitude towards Jesus, peace be upon him, extended to Christianity in general, major symbols of which are frequently used by poets such as Hafiz and Rumi, and this book explains for the first time the inner meanings of these Christian symbols as they appear in Sufi mystical writings. By explaining the importance of Jesus, peace be upon him, in the Sufi tradition, this book at the same time highlights the centrality of love and compassion for Sufis.


Excerpt from 'Jesus in the Eyes of the Sufis' :

'Indubitably no man is born fatherless;
Only one Jesus exists in the world
.'
---Shabistari.


The sufis believe that Jesus was born of Mary through the breath of the Holy Spirit, and had no physical father. The Qur'ann describes the Divine animation of man as a breathing of God's Spirit into the human frame, using the same expression for the generation of Jesus as for the creation of Adam, that is, by blowing of the Divine Breath, respectively, into the womb of Mary and into the clay of Adam's body a breath which is none other than the Grace of the holy Spirit.



The author, Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh, was the Master of the Nimatullahi Sufi Order for over 55 years, prior to his death, in October 2008, at the age of 82. In addition to bringing the teachings of the Nimatullahi Sufism to the West and other parts of the world, Dr. Nurbakhsh also wrote extensively on Sufism and was responsible for the editing, publishing and translation of many classic Sufi texts that have existed previously only in manuscript form.
