About The Book

Sufism, or tasawwuf, has been the classical name given to the Islamic discipline of purifying the heart of its spiritual maladies. 

The Qur'an has warned: A Day [of Judgement] in which neither wealth nor children shall be of any benefit [to anyone], except one who comes to Allah with a sound heart (26:88-9). 

The masters of Sufism speak of there being two thousand definitions of Sufism; however, the most inclusive of them was provided by their supreme authority, al-Junayd: 'Sufism is to adopt every lofty character trait and renounce every base character trait.' 

This short treatise was penned by Shaykh Abu bakr al-Mulla (d. 1270 AH), a traditional scholar from a learned family from al-Ahsa', in modern-day Saudi Arabia, wherein he elaborates on the foundations of this discipline. 

These principles are contextualised through Qur'anic verses, hadiths and axial aphorisms from leading Sufi masters of the past. Although brief, the manual is full of profound and moving wisdom that every Muslim should be characterised by.

'Nothing the Israelis did in Gaza seemed to [be] able to induce Hamas to yield, though the routine, almost daily bombing claimed many lives and destroyed Gaza’s entire infrastructure. While Israeli artillery pounded the border area, Israeli aircraft bombed the Prime Minister’s office, the Ministry of the Economy, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Interior Ministry. Aircraft also bombed bridges and main roads across the Gaza Strip, as well power plants and other services, in an apparent bid to cripple completely the Hamas-led government. This confirmed the suspicion that the entire operation was not about rescuing a single Israeli soldier in Palestinian captivity, but was rather a campaign aimed at destroying Hamas’s ability to govern in Gaza.'
