Arberry preserves the beauty and simplicity of the original without departing from a literal translation. Little is known of the author of this treatise Abu Bakr al-Kalabadhi, except that he was a lawyer and died in Bukhara in about AD 990. This book is the work on which his fame rests, and is important because it is the earliest extant text to reconcile the position of Sufism and orthodox Islam.

The book consists of five parts: a general introduction to the term Sufi and an enumeration of the names of the great Sufis; a statements of the tenets of Islam, as accepted by the Sufis; a discussion of the various 'station's of the Sufis; and a discussion of the various phenomena of Sufism. This is a superb English introduction to Sufism".

A prolific scholar of Arabic, Persian, and Islamic studies, he was educated at Portsmouth Grammar School and Pembroke College, Cambridge. His translation of the Qur'an into English, The Koran Interpreted, is one of the most prominent written by a non-Muslim scholar, and widely respected amongst academics. Formerly Head of the Department of Classics at Cairo University in Egypt, Arberry returned home to become the Assistant Librarian at the Library of the India Office.

During the war he was a Postal Censor in Liverpool[citation needed] and was then seconded to the Ministry of Information, London which was housed in the newly constructed Senate House of the University of London. Arberry was appointed to the Chair of Persian at the School of Oriental and African Studies SOAS, University of London 1944–47. He subsequently became the Sir Thomas Adams's Professor of Arabic at Cambridge University and a Fellow of Pembroke College, Cambridge, his alma mater, from 1947 until his death in 1969.

He is buried in Ascension Parish, Cambridge, together with his (by provenance Romanian) wife Sarina Simons/Arberry (1900-1973) whom he had first met in Cairo and then married at Cambridge in 1932. Arberry is also notable for introducing Rumi's works to the west through his selective translations and for translating the important anthology of medieval Andalucian Arabic poetry The Pennants of the Champions and the Standards of the Distinguished. His interpretation of Muhammad Iqbal's writings, edited by Badiozzaman Forouzanfar, is similarly distinguished.
