No matter which book of Sufism I translate and no matter what subject I pick there is one name repeatedly mentioned: Dhan-nun Al-Masri (Egyption). Goofing off around Toronto I came across a book on him by Dr. Javad Noorbakhsh. Well had no choice but…
I read he was reddish Nubian so I guess the picture on this page looks kinda like him.
