The Tawasin of Mansur Al-Hallaj

Author of The Tawasin, Mansur Al-Hallaj was a Persian mystic, revolutionary writer and teacher of Sufism most famous for his apparent, but disputed, self-proclaimed divinity, his poetry and for his execution for heresy at the orders of the Abbasid Caliph Al-Muqtadir after a long, drawn-out investigation. The Afghan sufi scholar Idries Shah suggested that Mansur al-Hallaj might have been the origin of the character Hiram Abiff in the Freemasonic Master Mason ritual.
