Description :


A guide to self-purification and spiritual development.



When there are useless debates on religion and the existence of the Creator, the heart is often drowned in the love of the world and completely unaware of the Hereafter. Sadly these people are unconcerned with prayer, fasting, alms giving or pilgrimage. In such a worldly environment it is imperative for self-improvement, to read the works of men of God. The writings of such men are a source of inspiration as well as cures for the inner and the outward sickness.


This work is a more than useful resource for all sufi aspirants in particular for those following the Naqshbandi and shadhili tariqa (sufi orders).
