Description :

'Morals for the Heart' (Fawa'id al-Fu'ad) is the second instalment in the Malfuzat series, a unique genre of books that records utterances from the lips of a sage through the pen of his devoted disciple.

In this distinguished work, Shaykh Nizam ad-Dinís poet-disciple Amir Hasan, skilfully and passionately transcribes his own conversations with one of Indiaís major saints. The book is presented in chronological order, with specific dates and detailed contexts of each encounter, allowing the reader to feel connected to the moments in which the Shaykh delivers his profound advice and also provides an insight into the unique relationship between a shaykh and his student.

Morals for the Heart maintains the privilege of being the only text- available or extinct- to have been edited and approved by the Shaykh himself.
