Muhammad : his life based on the earliest sources by Martin Lings( Book )

99 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 1,963 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An objective biography of the Prophet, drawn from primary Arabic sources of the 8th and 9th centuries, including passages never before translated.

A sufi saint of the twentieth century : Shaikh Aḣmad al-ʻAlawī: his spiritual heritage and legacy by Martin Lings( Book )

46 editions published between 1971 and 2006 in English and held by 730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Almost a prerequisite for any serious study of Sufism in European languages': this was the verdict of Seyyed Hossein Nasr in his review of the first edition of the book. According to the Journal of Near Eastern Studies, it is 'one of the most thorough and intimately engaging books on Sufism to be produced by a Western scholar'. Certainly there is nothing second-hand about it. The author lets Sufis speak for themselves and, in a series of unusual and absorbing texts mainly translated from Arabic, he gives a vivid picture of life in a North African Sufi order. Against this background stands the unforgettable figure of the Algerian Shaikh who was head of the order from 1909 until his death in 1934. The last few chapters are mainly devoted to his writings, which include some penetrating aphorisms, and which end with a small anthology of his remarkable mystic poems. -- From https://www.amazon.co.uk (Sep. 20, 2016)

Sufi poems : a mediaeval anthology( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and Arabic and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Sufi Poems: A Mediaeval Anthology we have for the first time a compilation and translation of some of the great masterpieces of Arabic Sufi poetry with the original Arabic on facing pages." "Beginning with the poetry of the renowned female saint, Rabiah al-Adawiyyah (d. 185 AH/801 AD), and including poems by Hallaj, Ghazali, Ibn Arabi, Ibn al-Farid and many others, Martin Lings offers us a taste of the inner life of Sufism at its most intoxicating."--BOOK JACKET

This school is well known for its espousal of the "transcendent unity of religions"--The idea that religions are different paths leading to the same summit.
