Al- Hallaj, the leading mystic theologian ( 857-922), his works throw light on crucial period in the history of Muslim culture, and considered as a turning point in the history of Tasawwuf. The only western writer who researched al-Hallaj’s writings was Louis Massignon.” Massignon outstanding research restored al-Hallaj to his rightful place in his environment and in the development of Muslim thought. After this, there is scarcely a work devoted to the culture of Islamic countries which omits to mention al-Hallaj.” (Encyclopedia of Islam).
