This book unlocks the secrets of the seven degrees through which the soul progresses as it travels the Sufi Path to its Lord. It teaches the novice how to transform the Inciting Soul, the lowest and most egotistic of the self's manifestations, into the Reproachful Soul, which must then become Inspired, Serene, Contented, and Found Pleasing, until it attains the ultimate degree of sanctity and wholeness as the Perfect Soul.
To achieve this progressive purification of the self, special Sufi practices, litanies, and attitudes of mind are recommended. Both practical and profound, this book offers a concise manual of Sufi teaching on the Way to spiritual liberation.
The author, Shaykh Abd al-Khaliq alShabrawi (1887-1947), was employed as a professor at AI-Azhar University in Cairo, but was best known as a realised master of the great Khalwati Order of Sufis. A tireless worker for spiritual unity and harmony, he was also initiated into the Shadhili and Naqshbandi Orders. Degrees of the Soul is the first English translation of his best-loved summary of spiritual wisdom.
There are many books in English which present Sufi doctrine, but few which can be used as practical travel guides along the Path. Originally written in Classical Arabic, the aptly-named Book of Assistance is today in widespread use among Sufi teachers in Arabia, Indonesia and East Africa. Presented here in the readable translation of Dr Badawi, this manual of devotions, prayers and practical ethics will be invaluable to all who love the Prophet and the Sufi Way.
The author, Imam Abdallah 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.
Secularism is usually regarded as a positive achievement of Western civilisation. The separation of church and state, the rule of law, enhanced state power and authority, toleration of religious sects within an independent civil society, the relegation of religious belief to the private sphere - all such `secularising trends' are perceived as benefits. In the Middle
East, however, Western-inspired secularism, as implemented by Atatiirk, Bourguiba and others - is increasingly cited by Islamist intellectuals as the source of the region's social dislocation and political instability.
This book is a contribution to that debate. It examines the origins and growth of the movement to abolish the secularising reforms of the past century by creating a political order guided by Shariah law. Some of the contributors explain the Islamic rejection of secularism as a failed Western Christian ideal. Others discuss how secularisation was pioneered by those who thought Muslims could only advance politically by emulating Western practices, which included the renunciation of religion. But whereas secularism in the West led to the spread of democratic values, in the Muslim world it has been associated with dictatorship, violations of human rights, the abrogation of civil liberties, and the attentuation of civil society. Other questions addressed include: how plausible is Islam's challenge to the ideal and reality of secularism, and what are its chances of success? How significant is the rising...read more
