About the Author

Amir Khusru (1253-1325) was an Indian musician, scholar and poet. He was a Sufi and mystic, and his poetry to The Beloved has become part of the folk culture of the Indian subcontinent. 

Amina Shah, sister of Idries Shah, has collected many tales and fables from the Sufi tradition, which she has collated for a western audience.
