What is Sufism - An Interview With Professor William C. Chittick


Professor William Chittick, one of the greatest contemporary American scholars of Sufism, has authored numerous books on Rumi, Sufism, and particularly on the life and teachings of the great 13th century Spanish -born Sufi master and philosopher, Ibn Arabi. Some of Prof. Chittick's outstanding scholarly works include:

Sufism: A Beginner's Guide.
The Sufi Doctrine of Rumi.
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi.
The Sufi Path of Knowledge: Ibn al-Arabi's Metaphysics of Imagination.
The Inner Journey: Views from the Islamic Tradition.


Prof. Chittick's masterpiece though, in my very humble opinion, is his outstanding English translation of Shams Tabrizi's 'Maqalat - شمس تبریزی- مقالات', literally meaning Articles, which he has titled as 'Me and Rumi: The Autobiography of Shams Tabrizi', also A MUST READ book for anyone interested in getting to know Rumi's mystical lover and spiritual master, Shams of Tabriz.
