The Tariqa Burhāniyya (also written al-Burhāniyya or Burhāniyyah) is a Sufi order founded by Sayyidi Abul Hasan al-Shadhili and Sayyidi Ibrahim al Disuqi in the 13th century. The order's full name is Tariqa Burhaniya Disuqiya Shadhilia, referring to its founders. Burhan-u-din is a surname of Sayyidi Ibrahim al Disuqi and means "evidence of religion". The order was renewed by the Sudanese Shaykh Mawlana Mohamed Usman Abdu al-Burhani (1902–1983). After his death the leadership of the order passed to his son Shaykh Ibrahim. During the leadership of Shaykh Ibrahim the order spread to many parts of the Arab Middle East, and to Europe and North America.

​"There is no god but God"-
the NO is affirmation
because of the BUT.

What is united with us
will never
be cut off:

Where did the atom "go"
when it reached
the sun?

What became of the drop
when it fell
in the sea?

(Awhad ad-Din Kirmani)

Description:


Sufism can be seen to have functioned as a positive and healthy reaction to the overly rational activity of the philosophers and theologians. For the Sufis, the road to spiritual knowledge could never be confined to the process of purely intellectual activity, without the direct, immediate experience of the Heart. In this book we are concerned with one art that the Sufis made peculiarly their own: poetry. Why should Sufis in general, and Persian Sufis in particular, choose to write poetry? When they wanted to 'be themselves', lovers of the Truth, they needed a language more intense, closer to the centre of human awareness than prose. Truth is beautiful, so when one speaks of it, one speaks beautifully. As the lover sings to his beloved, so did the Sufis to theirs. Love itself creates a taste for this language, so that even the prose writers of Sufism scatter verse throughout their works and create poetic prose. The overwhelming theme of this poetry is the Love relationship between the individual, the lover, and his Beloved, God.
