About The Book

Translation of Kitabu al-Hikam

This book is one of the more widely distributed works of Ibn 'Ata'illah and serves as an ethical guide to those seeking God. It is a collection of short spiritual sayings each containing profound meaning driven from the Qur'an and Sunnah, and deals with issues related to tawhid, ethics and day-to-day conduct.

People have spoken and written much about Sufism, as the discipline is known,   Ibn ‘Ata' Illah’s famous The book of Aphorism or  Book of Wisdoms (al-Hikam al-‘Ata'iyya) is a classical manual of spiritual development. One either has a tariqa and a sheikh or one does not, and Ibn ‘Ata' Illah is writing without apology for those who do, although the insights he raises may interest many others.

The second section of the book is made of four letters (also known as four treatises) written by Shaykh Ibn 'Ata'illah in response to questions of some of his disciples. They contain his mystical and philosophical deliberations and reflections on man's relation to God and his profound observations on some Qur'anic verses and sayings of the Prophet. 

The book ends with intimate discourses (al-Munjat al-Ilahiyyah). They are intimate supplications reflecting total submission to God. Most of them are coined by the Shaykh combining the supplications in Qur'an, Hadith and prayers of the Companions while some others are attributed to the Prophet's grandson al-Hasan bin 'Ali.
