The Treatise of Hatim

The Treatise of Hatim

(p.175) The Treatise of Hatim

Lloyd Ridgeon

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter translates the Treatise of Hatim, and discusses the content of the treatise that focuses on Hatim،s life. It particularly discusses Hatim's manifestation of his jamanwardi to the poor and the lowly members of the society; his humility, kindness, and recognition of how to achieve a tranquil life; how his life was remembered in posterity; and how, even after his death, his ethical values resulted in miracles around his grave. The treatise also discusses the ethic of hospitality and generosity offered for both altruistic and self-interested purposes. This form of generosity does not sit well with the Sufi،s ideals of selflessness. The treatise also touches on the positive portrayal of women, even to the extent of getting the better of men.

Keywords:   Treatise of Hatim, jamanwardi, humility, kindness, ethic of hospitality, generosity, portrayal of women
