Dreams, Sufism and Sainthood: The Visionary Career of Muhammad Al-Zawawi
E.J. Brill; Leiden, The Netherlands; 1996; 9004105999 / 9789004105997; First Edition; Hardcover; Brand New; Brand New; 
Based on Muhammad al-Zaw‚wÓ's extraordinary diary of 109 dream conversations with the Prophet Muhammad, this study provides a rare, intimate view of 15th-century North African Muslim life. The study reconstructs Zaw‚wÓ's lifestory over a critical ten-year period and examines his career as a sufi in the historical context of North Africa and Mamluk Cairo. Psychological aspects of Zaw‚wÓ's religious experience are thoroughly explored. The concluding chapter provides an introduction to the role of dreams and visions in medieval Islam. Particular attention is paid to the way Zaw‚wÓ and his successors used their visions to legitimate claims to being awliya', or living saints. Printed Pages: 282. 018746
