Banyen's Description: 

“I have been hungry for this book, these wonderful stories of Hallaj, Attar, Rumi! Bayat and Jamnia have done a wonderful job.” —Coleman Barks

Take a magic carpet ride into the delightful world of Sufi storytelling with these best-loved tales from Persian literature and lore, in which images of madness, passionate love, and self-sacrifice convey the inner experiences of the soul that has surrendered to the Divine Beloved. The tales are retold from the celebrated works of poets who were also spiritual masters, including Rumi, Attar, Nizami, and Jami; included are anecdotes about the famous masters themselves.

“These lovely stories, culled from Persian sources, will certainly open a way for Western readers into the wide and colorful world of Sufism.” —Annemarie Schimmel, author of Mystical Dimensions of Islam
