Overview

Queen Belacane is dying. As a last act, she inscribes a book of counsels, or prince's mirror, to guide her newborn son on his life's path. The Queen's counsels illuminate the way of futuwwa, a tradition of mystical chivalry traced to the Prophet Abraham. If the Prince would unite the chivalries of Christendom and Islam and attain the Cup Mixed with Camphor, he must fulfill the pillars of his faith, and uphold the universal virtues of wisdom, courage, temperance, and generosity.

Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, PhD, is president of the Sufi Order International and the founder of Suluk Academy. With Shaikh al-Mashaik Mah-mood Khan he jointly leads the Knighthood of Purity of the Hazrati Order.
