', as accursed Iblis said (Q.38, 77): 'I am better than he; Thou hast created me of fire, but him Thou hast created of clay'. Islamic solidarity grew temporarily on political grounds rather than as the expression of any true revival of the community, and as a political force it had to contend, in the end unsuccessfully, with local or more secular nationalisms among the Turks, the Arabs, the Persians, and other Muslim peoples.

The fullest biography of the subject in Arabic is that of the historian Ibn Asakir, and this is preferred to Sufi sources by some analysts. Writing in his 2011 book The Black Banners: the Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against al-Qaeda, the Lebanese-American former FBI agent Ali H Soufan, who led the bureau’s pre-9/11 investigation into al-Qaeda, observed: “When I first began interrogating al-Qaeda members, I found that while they could quote Bin Laden’s sayings by heart, I knew far more of the Quran than they did – and in fact some barely knew classical Arabic, the language of both the hadith and the Quran.

The spiritual state of baqa’, to which Sufi contemplatives aspire (the word signifies pure ‘subsistence’ beyond all form), is the same as the state of moksha or ‘deliverance’ spoken of in Hindu doctrines, just as the ‘extinction’ (al-fana’) of the individuality which precedes the ‘subsistence’ is analogous to nirvana, taken as a negative idea. We need not quarrel with the poet for coming to grief in his logic. Sufi orders hold a wide variety of beliefs in relation to Prophet Muhammad. �Of them are those who believe that he was ignorant of the knowledge the Sufi Elders possess. �Al-Bustami, a Sufi Sheikh said: �We have entered a sea of knowledge at the shore of which the Prophets and Messengers stood.� Other Sufis ascribe some type of divinity to the Prophet saying that all of creation was created from the �light� of Prophet Muhammad.� Some even believe that he was the first of creation and that he is resting upon the throne of God, which is the belief of Ibn Arabi and other Sufis who came after him.

Orders of Sufis became important in India during the thirteenth century following the ministry of Moinuddin Chishti (1142–1236), who settled in Ajmer, Rajasthan, and attracted large numbers of converts to Islam because of his holiness. Vital signs taken after an individual’s interaction with a pet show positive effects on the blood pressure, pulse, and breathing frequency, and the results of these tests are surprisingly similar to the body’s condition after deep meditation.
