    Sufism, the religious philosophy of Islam, is described in the oldest extant definition as "the apprehension of divine realities", and Mohammedan mystics are fond of calling themselves Ahl al-Haqq, the "followers of the real". In attempting to set forth their central doctrines, I shall draw on materials which I have collected during the last 20 years for a general history of Islamic mysticism - a subject so vast and many-sided that several large volumes would be required to do it anything like justice.
