A Blessed Valley (Volume 1) -
Wadi Hadramawt & the Alawi Tradition
Paperback, 240 pages with colour images
One of the purest lineages of the People of the House is that of the Ba-'Alawi sayyids of Hadramawt. Their tradition and chains of transmission remain unbroken to this day.
Today, there are hundreds of thousands of 'Alawi's all over the world, a good number of whom are authoritative scholars, and many of whom achieve sanctity, whether or not they reveal to the external observer anything of their inner states.
Their influence in the Islamic world is bound to remain substantial in the foreseeable future, if not, as once stated by Imam al-Haddad, until the appearance of the Mahdi. It is in order to illustrate the continuity of their pattern of knowledge and sanctity and connect it to their current influence that this book has been written.

About The Author
Dr. Badawi is a scholar of great benefit, whose books address topics often
neglected by others. He always has new things to say and his works, if studied
well, repay the student abundantly. Arabia is terra incognita for too many
people around the world and particularly in the West. Far from being a
wasteland, it is a vast ocean of spirituality and its lost history of Prophetic
activity is well-explored her. Dr Badawi is like a great explorer unearthing
Roseeta Stones of lost knowledge for us. He has done the hard work, and left for
us the sheer enjoyment of persuing the treasures he has unearthed. - Hamza Yusuf
