Product Description

While most of the examples in this research are based upon experiences and studies concentrated mainly, though not entirely, in the State of Johore, the findings are applicable to the Malays of Malaya (and Singapore) in general. The work is divided into three parts. In the first part a brief picture is presented, in historical as well as doctrinal perspective, of the origin, spread, development and culmination of Sufism in Islam concerning the central core of the Sufi doctrines which is the doctrine of the Unity of Existence (Wahdatu’l wujud), based upon that of the Unity of God (tawhid). The second part is based upon personal conclusions drawn from readings in Malay prose and poetical works of famous Malay mystics of the 16th and 17th centuries, as they are likely to be the best representatives of theoretical and doctrinal Sufism among the Malays. The third part deals with the practical and ritual aspects of Sufism based upon the author's findings in existing textbooks and literature and on personal experiences of the ceremonies and practices of the Tariqahs and of their Shaykhs
