About The Book

This book answers many of the questions often asked by seekers of inward illumination.

  • What are the real implications of the doctrine of divine unity? 
  • How can proper concentration be achieved during spiritual exercises?  
  • When should one avoid participating in Sufi gatherings?  
  • What is the relationship between the tongue, the mind, and the heart?  
  • How is one to understand visions received in sleep?  

The work also includes the author’s commentary on a poem on inner wayfaring which speaks of the most exalted stations of the path and goes on to explain a number of paradoxes of the Way, such as the reason as why the saints usually refuse to deploy their miraculous powers, preferring to concentrate on self-scrutiny and the compassionate guidance of others.  These points are illustrated with references to the famous mystical poems of Ibn al-Farid and Abu Madyan.

About The Author

Imam Abdallah Ibn-Alawi Al-Haddad lived in Tarim in the Hadramaut Valley between Yemen and Oman, and is widely held to have been the 'renewer' of twelfth  Islamic century. He was a noted authority on the Shafi'i school of jurisprudence, and a writer on devotional matters, both in poetry and prose. His works have been translated into many languages.

Imam al-Haddad died in 1132 A.H. having spent his life bringing people to their Lord through his oral and written teaching, and his exemplary life. He was buried in a simple grave in the cemetery at Tarim.

About The Translator 

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

'Be ye foremost (in seeking) Forgiveness from your Lord, and a Garden (of Bliss), the width whereof is as the width of heaven and earth, prepared for those who believe in Allah and His apostles: that is the Grace of Allah, which He bestows on whom he pleases: and Allah is the Lord of Grace abounding'.  
{TM Qur'an Al-Hadid 57:21}
