Description :

An interpretative translation by Shaykh Tosun Bayrak al-Jerrahi al-Halveti of Sirr al-Asrar by Hadrat Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, May Allah sanctify his secret, considered the greatest saint of Islam (Sultan al-Awliya) and the eponymous founder of the Qadiriyya order; the first of the great Sufi brotherhoods which radiate throughout the Islamic World.

The Secret of Secrets, considered one of the greatest works of classical Sufi Mysticism appearing in English for the first time. It reveals in a brief compass the very essence of Sufism, showing how outward practises such as prayer, fasting, alms-giving and pilgrimage - contain a wealth of inner dimension which must be discovered and enjoyed if external actions are to be performed in a manner pleasing to God. When this is achieved the soul finds true peace and the spiritual life becomes complete.

                    ‘A book of great importance to Sufism - Sheikh Tosun has
                     done an admirable job in presenting not only a translation
                     but a lucid interpretation of one of Shaykh al-Jilani’s most
                     important works. ’---Gnosis.

Sultan al-Awliya; Shaykh 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, may Allah sanctify his secret, born near the Caspian Sea, in a town called Jilan, is one of the most venerated figures in tasawwuf

The venerable Ghawth 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, may Allah sanctify his secret, is noted for his extraordinary spiritual experiences and exploits, as well as his memorable sayings and wise teachings. It is rightly said of him that 'he was born in love, grew in perfection, and met his Lord in the perfection of love.

The shaykh passed on to the Realm of Divine Beauty in 561A.H /1166 C.E and his mausoleum in Baghdad attracts millions of pilgrims from throughout the globe.
