Description :

Risalah al-Qushayriyah : 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 to 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 the Sufiya and Awliya al-Kiram and the link 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, may Allah be pleased with him, 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 aHadith] 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). Al-Qushayri, may Allah be pleased with him, was born in 986 CE in the province of Khurasan, the richest centre of eastern Islamic civilisation.
