Aisha al-Ba‘uniyya (c.1456–1517) was one of the greatest women mystics in Islamic history. A Sufi master and an Arab poet, her religious writings were extensive by any standard and extraordinary for her time.

She composed over twenty works and likely wrote more Arabic prose and poetry than any other Muslim woman prior to the twentieth century.
