Yūnus Emre’s Sufi Theology of Selfhood

image of Journal of Sufi Studies

In this article, I present and analyze what I call Yūnus Emre’s Sufi Theology of Selfhood conveyed in his Dīwān. In contrast to current one-dimensional approaches to Yūnus’ Sufi theology as “love mysticism,” on the basis of my research into what I call Yūnus’ Sufi Theology of Selfhood, I argue that Yūnus’ Sufism is multidimensional. Hence, it is deserving of a more broad-minded methodology. In part 1, I present a summary of Yūnus’ life and times, and offer a generic analysis of his poetry. To contextualize my study of selections from Yūnus’ Dīwān, I present a brief overview of the historical development of what I call a Sufi Theology of Selfhood in part 2. In part 3 of the article, I translate and scrutinize selections of Yūnus’ poems that I maintain best reflect his Sufi Theology of Selfhood from ontological-cosmological, epistemological, and experiential points of view.
