Currently in Turkey, there is a clear interest in the Sufi tradition and the Hallaj legacy. One book named after the mystical mountain Kaaf where all human souls came from and to where it yearns to return. Two books named “Ana al Haqq” “أنا الحق” expands the tragic story of Hallaj and his mystical Islamic teaching. The two best sellers are historical non fiction describing the love story between Shams Tabrizi and Mevlana Rumi. We expect this genre of sufi literature to be translated and find its way into intellectual circles in Arabia like many other Turkish translated books such as the work of Elif Shafak. The clash between the prevailing salafi mindset in Arabia and the Sufi ottoman intellectual heritage seems to be inevitable and interesting to observe.
