Description :

Histories of the Khwajagan - The Masters of Wisdom.

Shaykh 'Ali ibn Husain Safi, may Allah be pleased with him, the author of the Rashahat, lived in the beginning of the 10th Century AH. He was brother-in-law of the famous sufi mystic and poet Jami, may Allah be pleased with him, who gave him the name 'Safi'.

In the Rashahat 'Ain al-Hayat, Safi gives an account of the lives and teachings of a group of Sufi mystics known as the Khwajagan - the Masters of Wisdom.  

The Khwajagan lived in Central Asia between the 4th and the 9th centuries Hijri. The ranks of the Khwajagan include the great sufis 'Abd al-Khaliq al-Ghujdawani and Baha' al-Din Naqshband, may Allah be pleased with them, who gave his name to the Naqshbandi Order, though he did not found it. The many branches of the Naqshbandiyya survive to this day. 

This book is the first translation of the Rashahat into English and provides the present generation with clear and precise biographies of the great and genuine sufis who emerged in Turkestan at a most significant period.


Extract from the Introduction :

"In our book, the sayings attributed to the masters of this noble group have been established as authentic. Special care has been devoted to correct reporting of the exploits of the venerable Khwaja and other distinguished figures, whether knowledge of these has been obtained by indirect or direct means. Since the original purpose of this work was to record the spiritual state and exploits of the venerable Khwaja, this topic was the first to be brought to completion. The letters of the Arabic alphabet also have numerical values, so the number 909 (the date of the work's completion) is encoded in the title: Rashahat 'Ain al-Hayat [Beads of Dew from the Source of Life]."
