al-Maliki, while at the same time providing an overall defence of Sufis and Sufism, significantly including the positive opinions of Ibn
Taymiyya, Al-Jawziyya and Ibn Abdulwahhab.
- An Open Letter to the Ummah
- The adab of debate
- The evils of Kitab al-Hiwar
- The Mawlid of the Prophet

- Defence of Tasawwuf (includes description of Tasawwuf and what exactly it is, talks about the sufi shaykhs and diffrent
