Biographical Data :

Name :Abu Yazid Al Bastami
Period :745 - 874
Biographical detail : One of the most revered Sufis in the history of Islam.

Abu Yazid al-Bastami preached the doctrine of fannah (annihilation) in Allah, and discovered the divine in the deepest recesses of his being after prolonged mystical exercises. Al-Bastami wooed Allah like a lover. But he also learned the discipline of fannah by gradually peeling away the layers of egotism which, all spiritual writers agree, holds us back from the experience of the divine.

Al-Bastami found an enhanced self in the ground of his own being that was nothing other than Allah himself.
