Al-Loma’ fi al-Tasawwof, by Abu Nasr Sarraj-e Tusi, edited and annotated by Reynold A. Nicholson, translated into Persian by Mahdi Mahabbati, Tehran, Asatir, 2nd reprinting, 1388 A.H./2009.
Abu Nasr Sarraj wrote, in Arabic, the Al-Loma’ to repudiate the doubts expressed by anti-Sufis, strengthen the principles of Sufism and show its conformity with the Qor’an and Prophetic tradition. Several centuries passed until in the 20th century the Al-Loma’ was put into European languages, and belatedly into Persian. There are two translations of the Al-Loma’. The first translation, which is imperfect and contains only the first six books of the Al-Loma’ was published in1380 A.H./2001. The second one, which is complete, was printed in 1382/2003 by the Asatir Publishers.
The present article is a critical study of the second translation.
