Unlike most English-language books on Sufism—which tend to reflect on the sociocultural orientations of the modern West—this account provides a window into the living Sufism of the Khalidi-Naqshbandi of Kurdistan. In this sense, Sufism is quite unique as it contextualizes the practice both historically and within the Islamic religious milieu. With reviews on the 25 stations experienced by Sufis, from repentance to servanthood, this reference also discusses 15 common altered states of consciousness as well as technical terms, praiseworthy and blameworthy attributes, and the Naqshbandi path. Given its comprehensive content, this book offers a solid basis upon which to understand authentic Sufi practice.

Within the field of Islamic Studies, scientific research of Muslim theology is a comparatively young discipline. Much progress has been achieved over the past decades with respect both to discoveries of new materials and to scholarly approaches to the field. The Oxford Handbook of Islamic Theology provides a comprehensive and authoritative survey of the current state of the field. It provides a variegated picture of the state of the art and at the same time suggests new directions for future research. Part One covers the various strands of Islamic theology during the formative and early middle periods, rational as well as scripturalist. To demonstrate the continuous interaction among the various theological strands and its repercussions (during the formative and early middle period and beyond), Part Two offers a number of case studies. These focus on specific theological issues that have developed through the dilemmatic and often polemical interactions between the different theological schools and thinkers. Part Three covers Islamic theology during the later middle and early modern periods. One of the characteristics of this period is the growing amalgamation of theology with philosophy (Peripatetic and Illuminationist) and mysticism. Part Four addresses the impact of political and social developments on theology through a number of case studies: the famous mi?na instituted by al-Ma'mun (r. 189/813-218/833) as well as the mihna to which Ibn 'Aqil (d. 769/1367) was subjected; the religious policy of the Almohads; as well as the shifting interpretations throughout history (particularly during Mamluk and Ottoman times) of the relation between Ash'arism and Maturidism that were often motivated by political motives. Part Five considers Islamic theological thought from the end of the early modern and during the modern period.

The Chela s Handbook

Wisdom on the Path of Enlightenment Chela is Sanskrit for “disciple” of a spiritual teacher, or guru. The guru-chela relationship is far more than that of ordinary teacher and pupil, since it involves a profoundly spiritual interrelationship. Now, in this new volume, William Wilson Quinn has compiled and organized selections from several extraordinary gurus–primarily of India and Tibet–who were highly advanced and authentic spiritual teachers. Their advice focuses on chelaship–of how to become, and remain, a chela of one of their qualified successors. Distilled to its essence, and borrowing from their words, this handbook succinctly offers a guide to cultivating the chela’s inner qualities and virtues, as well as his or her outer behaviors. These inner qualities include, among others, open mindedness, purity of heart, an eager intellect, a sense of duty to the spiritual teacher, and a willing obedience to the behests of Truth. For the chela, these inner pursuits are effective only when matched with corresponding outer behaviors such as loving kindness toward others, selflessness, and a genuine compassion and charity for all who suffer. For seekers of spiritual truth and students of the perennial philosophy wanting to explore spiritual wisdom at depth, The Chela’s Handbook offers a guide for becoming and remaining a chela, and thereafter traversing the spiritual path toward the ultimate goals of enlightenment and liberation from the wheel of death and rebirth.

The Oxford Handbook of Early Modern English Literature and Religion

This pioneering Handbook offers a comprehensive consideration of the dynamic relationship between English literature and religion in the early modern period. The sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were the most turbulent times in the history of the British church and, perhaps as a result, produced some of the greatest devotional poetry, sermons, polemics, and epics of literature in English. The early-modern interaction of rhetoric and faith is addressed in thirty-nine chapters of original research, divided into five sections. The first analyses the changes within the church from the Reformation to the establishment of the Church of England, the phenomenon of puritanism and the rise of non-conformity. The second section discusses ten genres in which faith was explored, including poetry, prophecy, drama, sermons, satire, and autobiographical writings. The middle section focuses on selected individual authors, among them Thomas More, Christopher Marlowe, John Donne, Lucy Hutchinson, and John Milton. Since authors never write in isolation, the fourth section examines a range of communities in which writers interpreted their faith: lay and religious households, sectarian groups including the Quakers, clusters of religious exiles, Jewish and Islamic communities, and those who settled in the new world. Finally, the fifth section considers some key topics and debates in early modern religious literature, ranging from ideas of authority and the relationship of body and soul, to death, judgment, and eternity. The Handbook is framed by a succinct introduction, a chronology of religious and literary landmarks, a guide for new researchers in this field, and a full bibliography of primary and secondary texts relating to early modern English literature and religion.
