Overview

Excerpt: "We have devoted our lives to seeking knowledge of the heart; knowledge that will carry us to our soul's destination. Our arrival will be signaled by a profound inner peace; as a ship sails best in deep ocean waters, so the soul loves to swim in the ocean of Divine Knowledge. Your minds have limits, but not your hearts, for they are receptacles of endless capacity. But, you must open your hearts to this knowledge, as nothing may pass through what is closed."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These titles, part of the "Sufi Wisdom" series, form part of the works of Shaykh Nazim Adil Al-Haqqani, considered one of the foremost Sufi masters now living. Sufism is sometimes described as the mystical aspect of Islam and sometimes as the heart of all religious feeling. Certainly, it is notable among world spiritual traditions for its tolerance, openness, and inwardness (the "whirling dervishes" of Konya are a Sufi order). These answers to questions on the spiritual life are extremely difficult to summarize, but the volumes should make a valuable addition to the West's understanding of Islam, especially in a historical moment when many may feel tempted to demonize Islam. For most collections.
