Seven contemporary Sufi women are interviewed and their responses are compared to traditional psychology. This book has received rave reviews by mainstream America because it shows how Western women come to submission to God’s Will (Islam) and then sought the further dimension of commitment to inner change as part of the Sufi way of purification of the soul (tazkiyah-i nafs).
