Abstract:The Islamic tradition is rich and complicated, contrary to the simplistic, one-dimensional fundamentalism that gets highlighted too often in the West. One of the formative voices adding to the beauty and wealth of the tradition, and continuing the civil discourse within Islam is Sufism. Farīd al-Dīn 'Attār, a twelfth-thirteenth century Persian Sufi and poet, is a major figure within the Sufi heritage, and his unique writings about his mystical experience offer a much needed perspective to the contemporary understanding of Islam, both for Muslims and non-Muslims alike. In particular, 'Attār's notion of hayrat (blessed perplexity) is significant to both religious and philosophical debate about authentic religious experience and how it informs living religiously in the world. This dissertation argues that hayrat (blessed perplexity), as described in 'Attār's magnum opus Mantiq al-tayr ( The Conference of the Birds), is an experiential aporia. In other words, the Sufi adept who experiences tawhīd (union with God) is not empowered epistemologically nor ontologically. Rather, she is humbled as is evidenced in the state of hayrat (blessed perplexity), which follows tawhīd (union with God), and therefore she refrains from imposing herself upon the world.
