An authoritative Sufi manual on the proper conduct (adab
) of a seeker on the spiritual path, written by one of the great North African Sufis, Shaykh Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Buzaydi (d.1814), may Allah be pleased with him
This is lucid translation of al-Adab al-Murid al-Sadiq
and includes some of his letters to his disciples. The Shadhili
master explains the meaning and significance of the death of one's ego and the inner and outer propriety of the novice upon the Path.
The book provides an appreciation of Shaykh al-Buzaydi's method of spiritual training and his relationship with his students. It is, above all, a testimony as to why genuine Sufi masters are the heirs of the Beloved Prophet Muhammad, May Allah bless him and grant him peace
"The way of the Sufis is built upon three principles only;
*** the first is trueness;
*** the second is abandoning one's ego;
*** and the third is abandoning one's wealth.
Trueness is the foundation, abandoning one's ego is the wall, and abandoning one's wealth is the ceiling." ---Ibn Ahmad al-Buzaydi.
