"This pioneering book seeks to introduce the reader to Nabulusi's Sufi experience and work, set against the background of Islamic life and thought in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Syria and Palestine. These chapters emphasise the mystical content of his travel writings, including his interest in the significance of ecstatics' visions and visits to holy tombs."--BOOK JACKET.

'Abd al-Ghani al-Nabulusi (1641-1731) of Damascus was a key figure of the Islamic enlightenment. Often characterized solely as a Sufi saint, his thought and teachings were of a much wider remit. A contemporary of many major thinkers, scientists, poets, and philosophers of the European Enlightenment, his life and works offer a new perspective on the roots of modernity in the Arab world. Through a fresh reading of his biographical sources and large body of mostly unpublished works, Akkach examines al-Nabuusi's life and thought , exploring his contribution to the intellectual development of Islam and to the debate over its relationship with science. A biography of a key figure in the history of Islam, this book also offers an invaluable comparison of how rationalism operated in Enlightenment Europe and the Islamic world.

People in Western societies have long been interested in their dreams and what they mean. However, few non-Muslims in the West are likely to seek interpretation of those dreams to help them make life-changing decisions. In the Islamic world the situation is quite different. Dreaming and the import of visions are here of enormous significance, to the degree that many Muslims believe that in their dreams they are receiving divine guidance: for example, on whether or not to accept a marriage proposal, or a new job opportunity. In her authoritative new book, Elizabeth Sirriyeh offers the first concerted history of the rise of dream interpretation in Islamic culture, from medieval times to the present. Central to the book is the figure of the Prophet Muhammad - seen to represent for Muslims the perfect dreamer, visionary and interpreter of dreams. Less benignly, dreams have been exploited in the propaganda of Islamic militants in Afghanistan, and in apocalyptic visions relating to the 9/11 attacks. This timely volume gives an important, fascinating and overlooked subject the exploration it has long deserved.

"Au printemps 1968, lorsque la France et bon nombre d'endroits dans le monde âetaient secouâes par des mouvements de protestations sociopolitiques importants, quelques grands savants se râeunissaient áa la vieille et prestigieuse universitâe de Strasbourg et allaient dâeclencher un vâeritable tournant dans les âetudes islamologiques en Occident. En effet, pour la premiáere fois, des chercheurs d'envergure mondiale se rencontraient dans un colloque exclusivement consacrâe au shi'isme imamite. Les confâerences et les discussions aboutirent áa la publication d'un excellent recueil d'articles: Le shãi'isme imãamite: Colloque de Strasbourg (6-9 mai 1968), Presses Universitaires de France, Paris 1970. Si nous avons souhaitâe associer le 40e anniversaire de cet âevâenement áa l'hommage que nous voulions rendre áa Etan Kohlberg, c'est pour souligner le rãole majeur de ce dernier dans l'enrichissement et l'approfondissement des âetudes consacrâees au shiisme imamite. En effet, l'ampleur de ses connaissances, la rigueur radicale de son âerudition et ses grandes qualitââes humaines ont âetâe des facteurs dâecisifs dans la diffusion des âetudes shi'ites et leur transmission áa travers la formation de gâenâerations entiáeres de chercheurs. Ainsi, ce volume d'hommagese veut un tâemoignage de l'essor grandissant des âetudes shi'ites imamites et de la dette indâeniable de celles-ci aux savants râeunis, il y a quarante ans, áa Strasbourg, ainsi qu'áa l'oeuvre immense d'Etan Kohlberg."--Publisher's website.

Islam, followed by more than a billion people worldwide, is the world's fastest-growing religion and will soon be the world's largest. 'Islam-Empire of Faith' explores the first millennium of Islamic culture, from the revelation to Muhammad to the great Islamic empires. This accessible overview shatters stereotypes and enlightens readers - both Muslim and non-Muslim alike - to the many sources of contemporary Muslim civilization. 'Islam' examines the world at the rise of Islam, the life of Muhammad, Islamic principles of faith, the golden age of the Abbasid empire, the Mongol invasions of the thirteenth century, and the great Ottoman, Persian and Mughal empires that emerged in their wake. In its first thousand years, Islamic civilization flourished in cities between Spain and Central Asia. Many old cities such as Jerusalem, Damascus and Alexandria continued to thrive, while many new ones including Fez, Tunis, Cairo and Baghdad, were founded. While Europe suffered through the Dark Ages, Muslims made remarkable strides in the realms of science, medicine, literature and art. Authors Bloom and Blair provide a readable, yet in-depth narrative explaining the many intellectual and cultura

This book looks at the English writings of four twentieth-century Anglo-Arab and Arab American writers: Ameen Rihani, Khalil Jibran, George Antonius and Edward Atiyah. The Introduction investigates: Why should an Arab writer write in English? How do these writers negotiate encoding Arab meanings within an alien discourse? How is Anglo-Arab discourse political, and what are its politics? Does Anglo-Arab writing belong to the category of post-colonial literature? These issues are then explored at greater length in the succeeding chapters. While each writer is assigned a separate chapter, cross-referencing creates a sustained "dialogue" between two or more writers in a given chapter.
