Aisha al-Baʿuniyya

Aisha al-Ba‘uniyya (c.1456-1517) was one of the greatest women mystics in Islamic history.

She composed over twenty work... more

Crossing borders: ʿĀʾisha al-Bāʿūniyya and her travels

Arabic scholarship and literature flourished during the Mamlūk period, and scholars and students from across the Muslim world were drawn to Cairo and Damascus. This led to opportunities for travel, education, and employment, yet these opportunities were available almost exclusively to men. In Syria and Egypt, and most of the medieval world, women’s involvement in travel, education, and public life... more

Muḥammad al-Ṣūfī, the Prophet Muḥammad, and Ibn al-Fāriḍ

Muḥammad Ibn al-Shihābī al-Ṣūfī composed mystical poems in praise of the prophet Muḥammad, basing much of his verse on the poems of Ibn al-Fāriḍ. While he was not the first to imitate Ibn al-Fāriḍ, Ibn al-Shihābī may have been the first Arabic poet to use consistently a Persian style signature verse (takhalluṣ). This article offers a critical Arabic edition, English translation, and analysis of se... more
