Description :

The edition before you presents Ibn 'Ajiba’s (1747-1809) commentary on the great gnostic ?Abd al-Sal?m ibn Mash?sh al-?Alam?’s (1211–1294) celebrated salutation, or tasliyah, upon the Prophet of Islam, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.

The salutation, commonly known as As-Salat al-Mashishiyah ("The Prayer of Ibn Mashish"), is a seminal piece of literature read throughout the Muslim world. Prayers upon the Prophet, salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam, were initiated by God (Qur’an 33:56), instructed by the Prophet himself, and dutifully carried out by illustrious generations since the Prophetic companions.

Testimonials on Ibn Mashish :

          “He is the Pole of Islam. He is the Sea which overflows.”

            character traits of the Prophet.                ---Ahmad Ibn Ajiba.

            '' Remain always in a state of purity from doubts. Every time you
              invalidate your purity [ahdathta], renew it and cleanse yourself
              from the contamination of the lower world. Each time you incline
              toward lower passions, rectify yourself through sincere focus
              [tawajjuh], to repair what you have corrupted - or nearly
              corrupted - through illusion [wahm]. ''
