Description :

There are many books in English which present Sufi doctrine, but few which can be used as practical travel guides along the Path. Originally written in Classical Arabic, the aptly-named ''Book of Assistance'' is today in widespread use among Sufi teachers in Arabia, Indonesia and East Africa. 

Presented here in the readable translation of Dr. Mostafa al-Badawi, this manual of devotions, prayers and practical ethics will be invaluable to all who love the Beloved Prophet Muhammad, May Allah bless him and grant him peace, and the Sufi way.

The Author :

Imam 'Abdallah al-Haddad, may Allah be pleased with him, is widely believed to have been the spiritual "renewer" of the twelfth Islamic century. A direct descendant of the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, his sanctity and direct experience of God are clearly reflected in his writings, poetry, and books.
