Description from the publisher: Shahadb ud Din Suhrawardi founded the mystic order of Suhrawardiyyah; his ‘Awarif-u’l-Ma’arif is considered to be a standard work on mysticism and is extensively used in all mystic circles. Mahmud b. ‘Ali al Kashani rendered this work into Persian under the title Misbah-u’l-Hidayah. This English translation has mostly been done from the Persian version Misbah-u’l-Hidayah by Lieutenant Colonel H. Wilberforce Clarke.
