Description: This work, translated by Rkia E. Cornell, was lost for many years. It was originally part of Shaykh Sulami’s work ‘Tabaqat as-Sufiyya’ (Categories of the Sufis). It contains notices on 84 women and provides a picture of female spirituality in Islam that calls into question many long held myths about the status of women in the Muslim world.
