Jesus (Peace be upon him!) struck the ground with his hand and took up some of it and spread it out, and behold, he had gold in one hand and clay in the other. Then he said to his companions, 'Which of them is sweeter in your hearts?' They said, 'The gold.' He said, 'They are both alike to me.'

(Christ in Islam)

'Jesus in the Eyes of the Sufis'
By Javad Nurbakhsh (Author)

Description:

Dr. Nurbakhsh presents here a wealth of stories and poems about Jesus, many of which are translated into English for the first time from the original Arabic and Persian Sufi sources. They represent the profound reverence that Sufis for centuries have felt for Jesus, regarding him as a symbol of love and the perfect master. The enthusiastic attitude towards Jesus extended to Christianity in general, major symbols of which are frequently used by poets such as Hafiz and Rumi, and this book explains for the first time the inner meanings of these Christian symbols as they appear in Sufi mystical writings. By explaining the importance of Jesus in the Sufi tradition, this book at the same time highlights the centrality of love and compassion for Sufis.
