With beautiful illustrations from the world of Persian Sufism, The Sufi Doctrine of Rumi: Illustrated Edition opens the door to Rumi’s spiritual universe and it highlights Rumi as a beacon of light whose teaching dispels the shadows which prevent modern man from seeing even his own image in its true form and knowing who he really is.

In The Sufi Doctrine of Rumi: Illustrated Edition, William C. Chittick offers essential points of reference that serve as an accurate guidebook through the magical landscape of one of the greatest spiritual figures in the history of the world, Rumi.


Seyyed Hossein Nasr, author of The Heart of Islam: Enduring Values for Humanity and Rumi and the Sufi Tradition, writes in his foreword:

“This study of Dr. Chittick has the great merit... of approaching the subject [of Rumi’s metaphysical doctrines] from a strictly traditional point of view untainted by the modernistic fallacies which have colored most of the other studies devoted so far to this subject in Western languages .... [Rumi ] remains to this day a strong living influence in Persian and Turkish cultures and is now becoming a source of spiritual nourishment for seekers the world over.”
