The Essence of Sufism
John Baldock
Explores the rich body of literature the Sufis have produced to guide spiritual travellers.

1 "Say: Allah is One! Eternal. All things depend on Him." Koran, Surah 112, the Unity

2 "In spite of appearances, there is unity in multiplicity."

3 "The Arabic word 'islam' means 'submission', or to be more precise 'the surrender of one's whole being, to the Divine Unity, to the Oneness that is God."

4 "There is nothing in existence but Allah, His Names, Attributes and Actions; all is He, by Him, from Him and to Him." Sayyid Amuli, 'Inner Secrets of the Path'

5 "'I' and 'you' are but the lattices in the niches of a lamp, through which the One Light shines." Shabistari (d. 1320), Persian mystic, 'The Secret Rose Garden'

6 "We all have a duty of care towards our fellow beings within the Divine Unity, especially those who are less well off than ourselves."
