The Autobiography of a Moroccan Sufi Saint : Ahmad Ibn 'Ajiba

The Autobiography of a Moroccan Sufi Saint : Ahmad Ibn 'Ajiba

Description

Ibn 'Ajiba wrote his "fahrasa," or autobiography, not for the pleasure of talking about himself but "to celebrate God's kindness." It details his travels in search of both secular and spiritual knowledge, his entrance on a Sufi path strongly based within the Islamic tradition, and the social, intellectual, and spiritual struggles he encountered. This new English translation by David Streight is based on a contemporary French translation from the Arabic by the Swiss scholar Jean-Louis Michon.
