'Spiritual Exercises for Suhrawardi Sufi's,'
*[A5] Paperback - 234 pages,
by Qamar al-Huda,
Published by Routledge Sufi Series.

Description :

This book examines the theological, philosophical and Islamic mystical dimensions of the Suhrawardî sufi order from the 13th to 15th centuries. The Suhrawardîs were a legally grounded and intellectually vibrant sufi order whose mystical path was based on exchanges and debates on the Qur'an and on the Prophet's, ﷺ, customs.

The book analyses their interpretation of sacred texts: the Qur'an, hadiths, sunna, and malfuzat. This created a unique self-understanding, which developed specific sufi spiritual exercises. The book discusses new important ways of thinking about the sufi hermeneutics of the Qur'an and its contribution to Islamic intellectual and spiritual life.

Qamar-ul Huda is an Assistant Professor of Islamic Studies and Comparative Theology at Boston College and writes about medieval Islamic texts and mystical sufi treatises. He earned his doctorate from UCLA in the field of Islamic intellectual history and currently is working on sufi commentaries of the Qur'an and is translating a number of sufi treatises dealing with the Suhrawardi sufi path.
