Sufis’ Centers as Scientific and Educational Institutions by Reference to the Manuscripts Transcribed There
Abstract:

Sufism is an ascetic way among Muslims based on comportment for purifying the self and avoiding the world for reaching God and completing the soul. Sufis established several independent religious-military centers under different names, such as Khāngāh, Zawiya, Mazār, Takya, Rebat, Madrasa, Sawmi’a and so on in order to teach, meet, worship and discuss, publicize and live in. They had libraries where Sufism-related or other books were collected.
