Overview

Living
and Dying with Grace

is a book of aphoristic Sufi teachings on how to make one's way in the
world—especially on how to bring spiritual insight to the affairs of daily
life. Sufism, the mystical branch of Islam, contains a vast body of knowledge
concerning the inner development of the complete human being. Among the
greatest of Sufi masters, Hadrat 'Alî (598-661 CE), cousin and son-in-law
of the Prophet Muhammad, is regarded as a paragon of compassion and virtue and
a master of both exoteric and esoteric knowledge. He was not only a great
warrior, statesman, and scholar, but also a devoted husband and father.

Success
in this life, 'Alî teaches, is bestowed on those who maintain generosity,
intelligence, perseverance, integrity, and calm reflection. As for success in
the hereafter, 'Alî says, "God, the Glorified, admits to Paradise
anyone, at will, for truthfulness of intention and goodness of innermost
thoughts."

This
book contains four hundred of Hadrat 'Alî's teachings, showing how people
can use the everyday realities of their lives to cultivate wisdom and
well-being, both temporal and eternal, offering a path to living and dying with
grace.
