Sufism for Non-Sufis?: Ibn 'Ata' Allah al-Sakandari's Taj al-'Arus

Sufism for Non-Sufis? Ibn ‘Aṭa’ Allāh al-Sakandarī’s Tāj al-‘Arūs - Ibn ʻAta' Allah al-Iskandari, Sherman A. Jackson Ibn Ata Allah's aphorisms are great. I found myself re-reading a great number of them either because their meaning completely went over my head after the first reading or simply because of the profundity of their meaning. Ibn Ata Allah's aphorisms address things like forgiveness, love, repentance, and man's relationship with God - often through parables. I would often quote the ones that really stood-out to me to my friends.Highly recommended.
