About The Book
Ikhmalush Shiyam (Perfection of Morals) is a treatise for the Muhibbeen (Lovers of Allah). Although every Mu’min is a Lover of Allah. this treatise is largely directed to the attention of the Muhibbeen who are conscious of Divine Love. Nevertheless, it will benefit even the unconscious lovers by inducing in them some consciousness of the love lying dormant in their hearts which have been created for being the Abodes of Divine Love.
Since Ikhmâlush Shiyarn is a treatise for Muhibbeen, it speaks the language of love — Divine Love. Thus, the book abounds with paradoxes and seemingly contradictory calls and cries sounded for the guidance of those who understand the language of Allah’s Love.
The advices and prescriptions herein are balm for the Souls searching the Path of Love. leading to their Beloved, Allah Azza Wa Jal.
This book is not for the rational probing of a sceptic mind stunted by crass materialism. While such a mind denuded of Divine Illumination will be incapable of absorbing the treasures of Ikhrnâlush Shiyam the heart basking in the warmth of Divine Love will readily comprehend and relish the wealth of guidance so necessary for the perfection of morals — a perfection without which the Muhib (Lover) can never aspire to reach his Beloved.
