Sufism: A Guide for the Perplexed provides an accessible academic overview of Sufism and its study for undergraduate students. Engaging with existing literature in the field, whilst shedding light on the most challenging and difficult aspects, this Guide for the Perplexed bridges the gap between texts for general readers and more advanced texts in the field. Mustafa Draper explores Sufism from a range of perspectives, surveying the historical development of the movement, the emergence of doctrine and practice, the development of the tariqas and the scope and nature of Sufism in the contemporary world. Methodologically, Sufism: A Guide for the Perplexed covers a range of approaches: historical in terms of the contrasting narratives of the development of the movement; theological in terms of doctrine and practice; sociological in terms of the organisation and structure of the tariqas in both the historical and contemporary context.
