Stations of the Sufi Path: The 'One Hundred Fields' (Sad Maydan) of Abdullah Ansari of Herat

'Stations of the Sufi Path' is a new translation of a key Sufi text and the first Persian work to address the stages, or stations, of the Sufi way. Its author, Abdullah Ansari, was born in 1006 in Herat in present-day Afghanistan, and is considered one of the greatest as well as one of the earliest of the Persian Sufi scholars whose works constitute an important contribution to the intellectual history of Islam. Detailed descriptions of each 'station' make this work an esoteric masterpiece, now almost one thousand years old, that invites the reader ona spiritual journey of self-discovery.
