This biography collection genre is best known in English through the example of The Memorial of the Saints, which was compiled by the Sufi author Fariduddin Attar in the early thirteenth century. However, Dr Nurbakhsh, the most recent exponent of Persian Sufism and Sufi literature in all its genres, offers here his own selection of Sufis from the eighth to the nineteenth century, with the most significant biographical material related to them. It, therefore, contains many anecdotes, poems and aphorisms which are translated here from the original Arabic and Persian into English for the first time.

In addition to the celebrated early figures, SUFI MEN includes biographies of well-known masters, such as Rumi, Ibn Arabi, Shabistari, Amir Khusraw, Shah Nimatullah and Jami.
