Description : Al-Risala Al-Qushayriyya fi 'ilm al-Tasawwuf,

Al-Qushayri's Risala is probably the most popular Sufi manual ever.  It provides an insight into the everyday lives of Sufi devotees of the eighth-eleventh centuries and the moral and ethical dilemmas they were facing. This work invites the reader to explore the world of Islamic ascetic and mystical piety.

Synopsis : Written in 437/1045, it has served as a primary textbook for many generations of Sufi novices down to the present. In it, Imam al-Qushayri, May Allah be pleased with him, gives us an illuminating insight into the everyday lives of Sufi devotees of the eighth to eleventh centuries C.E. and the moral and ethical dilemmas they were facing in trying to strike a delicate balance between their ascetic and mystical convictions and the exigencies of life in a society governed by rank, wealth, and military power.

In al-Qushayri’s narrative, the Sufi ‘friends of God’ (awliya’) are depicted as the true, if uncrowned, ‘kings’ of this world, not those worldly rulers who appear to be lording it over the common herd of believers. Yet, even the most advanced Sufi masters should not take salvation for granted. Miracle-working, no matter how spectacular, cannot guarantee the Sufi a ‘favorite outcome’ in the afterlife, for it may be but a ruse on the part of God who wants to test the moral integrity of his servant.

Imam Abu'l Qasim 'Abd al-Karim al-Qushayri, radi Allahu anhu, was the student of the leading sufi scholar of the time; Shaykh Abu `Ali al-Daqqaq, may Allah be pleased with him. Al-Qushayri, was a muhaddith [master of Hadith] who transmitted hadith to pupils by the thousands in Naysabur, in which he fought the Mu`tazila until he flew to Makkah to protect his life. He was also a mufassir who wrote a complete commentary of the Qur'an entitled Lata'if al-isharat bi tafsir al-Qur'an (The subtleties and allusions in the commentary of the Qur'an).
