'Abd al-Ghani al-Nabulusi (1641 to1731) was the most outstanding scholarly Sufi of Ottoman Syria. He was regarded as the leading religious poet of his time and as an excellent commentator of classical Sufi texts. At the popular level, he has been read as an interpreter of symbolic dreams. Moreover, he played a crucial role in the transmission of the teachings of the Naqshabandiyya in the Ottoman Empire, and he contributed to the eighteenth-century Sufi revival via his disciples. This pioneering book analyzes important aspects of al-Nabulusi's work and places him in the historical context.

Industry Reviews

'Sirriyeh's book makes a fresh contribution to our understanding of Sufi life and thought in the pre-modern era of Islam. It provides new insights into Sufi manifestations of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and adds to the ongoing debates around the concept of "Neo-Sufism".' - Itzchak Weismann, Middle East Studies Association Bulletin, Volume 40 Number 2, December 2006
