Description :

Shaykh, Mureed & the Spiritual Path - In light of the fatwa and works of A'la Hadhrat Imam Ahmad Raza Khan, may Allah be pleased with him.


This is an extremely rare work in the English language containing unique research and clarification not found in even the ancient texts of Jurisprudence and Mysticism. The aim of this book is to clarify misconceptions and guide one to the true path of salvation and spirituality.




Question :

"If a person does not have a ‘Shaykh’[1], will he attain ‘Falaah’[2]? And if he does not have a ‘Shaykh’, will Satan be his Master?


Bear in mind that Allah Almighty has stated, وَابْتَغُواْ إِلَيهِ الْوَسِيلَةَ  “And find a means towards him” (Al-Qur'an, S.5, V.35)


Additionally, in many books of Sufism and Mysticism it is stated, “Satan is the teacher and guide for the one who does not have a ‘Murshid’ (i.e. spiritual guide)”! Furthermore, in the books of the spiritual sages it is also stated, “The one who does not have a ‘Shaykh’ will be deprived from ‘Falaah’ (success)”


Please answer with great detail so that the meanings and context of the above statements are clarified?
