'Practical Spiritual Advice for Muslim Self-Care'
*[A5] Slim Paperback - 72 pages,
by Abu 'Abd al-Rahman al-Sulami [d.412h],
Translation & Notes by Musa Furber,
Published by Islamosaic.




Description :

The Wasiyyah of Shaykh Abū ʿAbd al-Raḥmān al-Sulamī, may Allah be pleased with him, contains forty-six counsels. Each counsel concerns actions Allah Almighty and His Messenger, may Allah bless him & give him peace, have commanded us to perform or avoid. Each of the actions in the counsels impacts one’s physical, moral, and spiritual well-being and development.


The book is a lighter, kinder, and gentler companion to his Infamies of the Soul and Their Treatments. Read together, these two provide a practical toolkit and plan for self-care and development.




Abu Abd al-Rahman al-Sulami [d.412h].


He is Abū ʿAbd al-Raḥmân Muḥammad ibn al-Ḥusayn ibn Musa al-Azdi al-Sulami, al-Naysaburi, alayhi ar-Rahman. He was born in Nishapur (arabic: Naysabur) (Persia) in 325 Hijri. It was the influence of Al-Sulami's grandfather which first drew him towards the ascetic doctrine. He travelled extensively throughout Khorasan and Iraq in his pursuit of hadith knowledge. Al-Sulami's education was also supported by a thorough training in religious law and theology, Ash'ari kalam in particular, which he learned from the Qadi Abu Bakr al-Baqillani [d.403/1013].  In fiqh, Al-Sulami followed the Shafi'i school. In Nishapur Al-Sulami became renowned as a Shafi'i scholar and a collector of traditions. He was a prolific author of many sciences but in paricular of tafsir, hadith and tasawwuf - who according to his biographers Al-Sulami wrote more than a hundred books and treatises over a period of some fifty years.


His books tended to deal with the more practical aspects of tasawwuf, like the Jawami Adab al-Sufiyya and 'Uyub al-Nafs wa-Mudawatuhu which focused on sufi customs and practices. Most of his works included citations from the Qur'an and Sunnah in support of orthodox Sufi behaviour.




Musa Furber is a Research Fellow at the Tabah Foundation, and is a qualified issuer of edicts (mufti). He received his license to deliver legal edicts (fatwas) from senior scholars at the Egyptian House of Edicts, including the Grand Mufti of Egypt. He was raised in Portland, Oregon, and lives in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates
