Description :

Fayd al-Latif ala Jawharah al-Tawhid : 'An Outpouring of Subtleties Upon the Pearl of Divine Oneness.' It is with sheer joy that we share this news with the English speaking world, in that Volume One of the English commentary and translation of Imam Laqqani’s Jawharah al-Tawhid is finally ready to be published.

The text, volume 1, deals with the differences of opinions and subtleties regarding Lordship (Ilahiyat).

Jawharat al-Tawhid, is one of the approved and accredited texts of the Sunni Creed in the Ashari school. Written as a poem to facilitate memorising it and to make it more enjoyable and appealing for young students. This was a method widely used to teach and convey knowledge in the past and is still used in some schools till today. It was composed by Imam Ibrahim al-Laqani al-Maliki (1041 H) upon a gesture from his Sufi mentor. Due to its high value and wide acceptance, many commentaries were written to elaborate and explain the meanings it had within.
