The Awarif Ul Ma'arif by Shahab-u'd-Din al-Suhrawardi

Description :

Awarif-ul-Ma'arif is is one of the oldest and most authentic books on tasawwuf (sufism). It is a manual for daily study and practice written by the the renowned thirteenth-century Sufi thinker, Shaykh 'Abu Hafs Umar al-Suhrawardi.

The treatise recognises the primary importance of the Qur'an and the Hadith, and functions as a medium of interpretation for the primary texts.

The aim of the treatise is to assist the daily spiritual exercises and general intellectual development of the Suhrawardiyya members; it makes use of Qur'anic hermeneutics, hadith commentary, rational arguments on epistemology, as well as discussing different levels of spirituality and proper manners. It also includes some severe critique of others orders and their interpretations of tasawwuf. In very many, if not all, of his arguments, Suhrawardi relies for authority upon hadith's his own intimacy with the Prophet's, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, way of life. The use of ahadith's in legal, philosophical, poetical, and religious contexts has long been known and understood. Their use in a Sufi spiritual manual is orientated toward presenting the way the Prophet, May Allah bless him and grant him peace, as a model for inward and outward actions. Suhrawardi's intensive use of the hadith's is a significant element in the treatise, enabling its readers to remember and re-enact the Prophet's way so that they can move from merely imagining to actually embodying the Prophet's spirituality.

In sum, while the student rehearses and memorises the Qur'an for the formal prayer rites, Prophetic hadith's are committed to memory in order to cultivate a closer kinship to the Beloved Prophet, May Allah bless him and grant him peace, and maintain his sacred presence at every moment.
