Description :

This book contains discourses that Shaykh ‘Abd Al-Qadir Al-Jilani, May Allah sanctify his secret, delivered at his school in Baghdad. As in all of his sermons and writings, the Shaykh explains in these discourses to his audience how to draw nearer to God. His words are the fruit of years of personal strife against his lower self and complete dedication to God, thus telling the fascinating story of his attainment to nearness to God.

The Shaykh addresses many spiritual diseases — such as envy, greed, arrogance, and attachment to this world — and the qualities that the seeker of God must acquire — such as love, renunciation, humility, satisfaction, patience, and truthfulness.

He explains in a simple but very powerful and effective way to the wayfarers how to have their spiritual diseases healed and what qualities they need to acquire for their journey to God. The Shaykh’s words and advice are not targeted at certain people, but they address various spiritual states and stations. His words provide a drink for everyone who thirsts for knowledge that takes him nearer to his Lord.

 Discourses from a great teacher :

     *** Forty five discourses by Shaykh ‘Abd Al-Qadir Al-Jilani,
     *** Essential exhortations for the seeker of God,
     *** Genuine advice from the Master’s own spiritual experience,
     *** Wise words elucidating the spiritual reality of Islam.

Dr Louay Fatoohi has also translated [September 2014] into English, Shaykh 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani's, Fifteen LettersKhamsata ĘżAshara Maktuban. He is the author of several books in English and Arabic.
