About The Book
There are many books in English which present Sufi doctrine, but few which can be used as practical travel guides along the Path. The aptly-named Book of Assistance (Risalat al-Mu’awana) is today in widespread use among teachers across the world. This manual of devotions, prayers and practical ethics is invaluable to all who love the Prophet and the Sufi Way.
About The author
Imam Abdallah Ibn Alawi al-Haddad (d. 1720), lived at Tarim in the Hadramaut valley between Yemen and Oman, and is widely held to have been the ‘renewer’ of the twelfth Islamic century.
A direct descendant of the Prophet, his sanctity and direct experience of God are clearly reflected in his writings, which include several books, a collection of Sufi letters, and a volume of mystical poetry.
He spent most of his life in Kenya and Saudi Arabia where he taught Islamic jurisprudence and classical Sufism according to the order (tariqa) of the Ba'Alawi sayids.
