Any eye filled with the vision of this world
cannot see the attributes of the Hereafter,
Any eye filled with the attributes of the Hereafter
would be deprived of the Beauty of Oneness.
(Khwaja Abdullah Ansari)

By Victor Danner (Author)
Two early Sufi classics are contained here in one volume. They embody the essence of spiritual life in the Islamic tradition. Ibn Ata Illah (c. 1250-1309) was a Sufi saint and sage who lived in Egypt. Kwaja Abdullah Ansari (1006-1089) was one of major early writers of Persian mystical literature.
