Description :

Bahauddin Naqshband, May Allah be pleased with him, of Bukhara, known as the reviver of the Khwajagan school, is one of the most eminent Sufi figures of the 14th century.

After Bahauddin Naqshband’s, May Allah be pleased with him, time, this school later came to be known as the Naqshbandiyya order which has now spread throughout the entire Islamic world. Since then, the Sufi views of Bahauddin Naqshband, May Allah be pleased with him, and the Naqshbandiyya order have functioned as an elaborate part of the fabric of Muslims’ lives, both on material and spiritual planes.

This book is a humble contribution to the history of Sufism as an introduction to the life of this great historical figure, Bahauddin Naqshband, his life, his Sufi views, and history of the Naqshbandiyya order.


About the Author : Necdet Tosun (Ph.D., Marmara University, 2002) is Associate Professor of Sufism at Marmara University in Istanbul, Turkey. He has published works on Ottoman, Central Asian and Indian Sufism.
