Resumen

KERAAN, Mustapha  y  HARON, Muhammed. Selected Sufi texts of Shaykh Yusuf: Translations and commentaries. Tydskr. letterkd. [online]. 2008, vol.45, n.1, pp.101-122. ISSN 2309-9070.

Shaykh Yusuf Al-Khalwati Al-Maqassari has made his mark in Southeast Asia as a heroic figure who fought valiantly against the Dutch. However, it was his position as a Sufi shaykh that catapulted him into prominence. Before and during his period of exile, the shaykh wrote a number of important texts on tosowwuf (Sufism) that have circulated among and influenced many of his companions and students. In this article we have translated three short treatises that had been attributed to him. Although none of them was written whilst he was in exile at the Cape of Good Hope between the time of his arrival there in1694 and the time of his death in 1699, he was able to disseminate its contents to members of the nascent Cape Muslim community who had come into contact with him.

Palabras clave : Shaykh Yusuf; Sufi Literature; Islam in South Africa; Melayu Archipelago.
