Sufficient Provision for Seekers of the Path of Truth (Volume 5) By Shaikh Abd Al-Qadir Al-Jilani
Sheikh Abd al-Qadir al Jilani is regarded by many as the Sultan of the saints and the supreme spiritual helper (al-Ghawth al-Azam). He lived almost a thousand years ago, yet his words transcend the time and place in which they were recorded to span the centuries without difficulties.
- In this monumental work of five books, the Sheikh (may Allah be well pleased with him) provides a comprehensive exposition of both the outer and the inner aspects of Islam. His words shed light on the workings of the spiritual core of the human being, as well as on the traditional norms of external conduct. ôThe proper attitude to going on a journey, ôhe tells the Seeker of the Path of Truth, ôis best described in the language of spiritual experience.
- Transated by Muhtar Holland, one of the foremost translators of classical Arabic, Sufficient Provision for the Seekers of the Path of Truth is a work of inestimable value to every English-speaking Muslim, and to seekers of spiritual knowledge and understanding everywhere. It should also be a welcome addition to the library resources of scholar and layman alike.
- The venerable Shaikh Abd al-Qadir al Jilani passed on to the Realm of Divine Beauty in A.H. 561.1166 C.E. He is noted for his extraordinary spiritual experiences and exploits, as well as his memorable sayings and wise teachings. It is rightly said of him that he was born in love, grew in perfection, and met his Lord in the perfection of love. May All-Glorious Lord bring us in contact with his lofty spiritual influence.
