Description :

Extract from the Translator's Note:

'' Kashf al-Mahjub is one of the oldest persian treatise in Sufism and has been in circulation for over ten centuries and its reading has caused millions of hearts to find their way to the Truth. It provides ample opportunity for the seeker of the Truth and guides him to his goal even without an intermediary. Its teaching is simple and heart throbbing.

Although the original book was written in Persian (farsi), no translation can match the original text, particularly when the use of technical terms encompass the meanings and feelings of the trade holder, it becomes more difficult to translate the expressions in their true sense. However, earnest efforts have been made to produce the work as near to the original as possible. The verses of the Qur'an and sayings of the eminent Sufi's have been added in Arabic and their closest possible vocabulary in English has been used in translation.

For the benefit of the common reader I have tried the keep the language as simple as possible. It is hoped that all those hearts who are desirous of acquiring the knowledge of the Truth and eager of following the righteous path would overcome their thirst by studying this book and Allah-willing would achieve their goal of attaining His proximity. As the author says that he has composed this book to polish the hearts of those who are subject to temporary veiling but in whom the substance of light of the Truth is existent, in order that the veil may be lifted from them by the blessing of reading it, and that they may find their way to spiritual reality. May Allah Almighty bless all of us with His Mercies and Bounties both in this world as well as Hereafter. Amin! '' ---Muhammad Ashraf Javed, (Translator).
