'Adam al-wujdaan la yadallu 'ala 'adam al-wujud'

That is, 'the non-existence of knowledge of something is not proof of its non-existence' - the famous principle of Islamic philosophy.

(Quoted from, Traditional Islam in the Modern World, by Seyyed H. Nasr.)

Umer,

See this and let me know what you think of it...

I read your detailed comment and I was wondering before suggesting you someone. I do not wholly agree to perennialists' point of view and here let me admit that I haven't read them enough so my knowledge of their 'philosophy' IS limited.

Now, for me tasawwuf is beyond the realm of PHILOSOPHY. Perennialism is on the other hand seems to be rooted into it despite acknowledging its shortcomings.

Secondly, one book that I would highly recommend you to read before you do anything else - and get it asap if you are really interested - :) is TASAWWUF KYA HAI? By Maulana Manzoor Naumani, Maulana Owais Nadwi and Maulana Syed Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi (rahimahumullah)

Also see my response on my blog too.
