The religion of Islam holds to the belief in one god, Allah. But although it is a monotheistic religion that does not embrace a pantheon of deities, Muslims recognize the lives, works, and spiritual grace of numerous mystic, seers, and leaders who have helped others, either by direct acts of assistance or by founding schools of thought or denominations within the broader range of Islamic philosophy and practice.

There is much to be learned from studying the lives and deeds of such spiritual figures and holy persons. Their works and the examples they set are an inspiration to many, and in some cases, their intercession may be sought by the devout.
