Masnavi 3:17 by Rumi in Teachings of Rumi tr. On this early manual of Sufism, see further R. Gramlich, Die Nahrung Der Herzen: Abu Talib Al-Makkis Qut al-Qulub (Wiesbaden: Franz Steiner, 1995). (99) S. Mback also discusses the important role the brotherhoods have played in the economy via the agricultural sector and the financial duties between a shaykh and his murids.
