Abstract

Rabia Basri, was the first female Sufi Saint of Islam, also known as Rabia al-Adawiyya. Rabia’s views are based on God's compassion, claiming and preaching that love is the only road to God. There is no clear distinction between good and bad, for it is reduced to Unity, and God is the only writer of mankind's actions. God is the one who determines man's will.. The aim of a Sufi's life is only to love God and pursue His grace and happiness, which is impossible unless the person serves humanity.
