Abstract

Sufistic literature that is known today cannot be separated from the influence of previously established literary developments such as classical poetry in Arabic literary discourse. On the other hand, this is also inseparable from the influence of the development of Islam. Nasib; the ghazal element of qasidah, the convention of Arabic poetry, is the entrance to the Sufistic literature’s formation. Thus, the Sufistic literary genre does have an epistemological basis, namely the history of classical Arabic literature and the development of Islamic thought. Ghazal and other elements as epistemological frameworks for Sufistic literature is an element that is studied and analyzed in this paper, which then form the Sufistic literature known to this day. The historical and philosophical approach is described through the relationship between literature and Sufism that characterizes the literary world on one side and the Sufistic world on the other.
