A most valuable and important work on Sufism.

The book begins with a discussion on the meaning and proposed derivations of the term Sufi and enumerates names of the great Sufis. It then states the tenets of Islam, as accepted by the Sufis and tries to prove that Sufism as a system lies within and not without the founds of orthodoxy.

Further it discusses the various stations of the Sufis such as fear, hope, love etc. and also discusses the technical terms of the Sufis. The book concludes with descriptions of the various phenomena of Sufism, and of the miraculous dispensations accorded to the Sufis by God.
