Description :
'Taleemat e Saifia : A Concise Guide to Islamic Sufi Teachings' is a handbook of the Naqshbandiyya Saifia Teachings written by Faisal Dean Raza Saifi under the guidance of Professor Peer Sayyid Muhammad Ali Raza Bukhari al-Saifi.

The reality of Islam is the complete submission to the command of Almighty Allah. The commandments of Islam apply to both the outward and inward state of the Muslim. One of the central and most important aspects of Islam is the Sufi teaching also known as Tasawwuf (esoteric dimension of Islam). As Islamic jurisprudence, known as Fiqh, teaches the Muslim how the outward worship, such as Prayer and Fasting should be performed, in like manner, Tasawwuf also teaches the Muslim how to internalise the worship through states of the Nafs (self).
In short, the main purpose of Tasawwuf is the purification of ones intentions and the humility in ones conduct with The Creator and His creation. It is important to create a balance between Fiqh and Tasawwuf in ones life, as one cannot exist without the other. Imam Malik ibn Anas (93 AH - 179 AH) famously said of Tasawwuf :

"Whoever studies tasawwuf without fiqh will be corrupted
and whoever studies fiqh without tasawwuf will transgress
and whoever studies fiqh and tasawwuf will reach reality
(the Truth)."

This book outlines the teachings of the 'Naqshbandi Mujaddidi Saifi' spiritual path, and serves as a guide for students of this discipline. Within it are the daily practices of all four spiritual paths (Naqshbandi, Chishti, Qadiri and Suhrawardi), as transmitted and taught by the eminent teacher and scholar, The late Hazrat Imam e Khurasani Akhondzadah Saif-ur-Rahman Peer-e-Archi Mubarak Sahib. In particular the teaching of the 'Naqshbandi Mujaddidi Saifi' path, that is dependant on the Tawajju (attention) of an accomplished sufi master.
