    Sufism in Western Historiography: A Brief Overview.Atif Khalil & Shiraz Sheikh - 2016 - Philosophy East and West 66 (1):194-217.
    When the Taliban destroyed the famous statues of the Buddha in the Bamiyan Valley in Afghanistan more than a decade ago, the outrage of the global community, including that of prominent Muslim religious leaders, was matched perhaps only by the pious euphoria of Afghanistan’s hardliners. They had finally succeeded in removing visible signs of idolatry from their landscape, and fulfilled, at least in their own eyes, a long overdue religious mission.

    Tawba in the Sufi Psychology of Abū Ṭālib Al-MakkĪ.Atif Khalil - 2012 - Journal of Islamic Studies 23 (3):294-324.
