The Kitab al-Hikam of Shaykh Ibn 'Ata'illah al-Iskandari is the inspiring explanation of the soul's journey through this life, as determined through the Qur'an and Sunna.

It is not obvious from the product description that this book includes the complete Danner translation of the Kitab al-Hikam together with the Arabic originals. This may be the only edition of that translation with accompanying Arabic, fully vowelled, and that alone merits the price of the book. The aphorisms appear out of order, grouped thematically. My own best judgment suggests that he's the real deal, so you can buy this book without concern that it's some kind of goofy-sufi nonsense, but instead speaks to the authentic tradition of Islamic Sufism.
An incredibly fascinating book for those who seek to open their mind. Just a few pages in can change your perspective on certain subject matters. A great read for those on a religious journey.
Well written and intensely thought provoking. Timeless wisdom from one of the luminaries of the Islamic tradition - this is an excellent work on Islamic Spirituality. Excellent read.

The Hikam: The Wisdom of Ibn 'Ata'Allah
This is the first of a series of articles the interpreter has been asked to write on "traditional Islamic spirituality," a science that deals with answering this summons, lifting the heart from the narrowness of the self to the limitlessness of the knowledge and love of the Divine. One of the signs of relying on deeds is loss of hope when a misstep occurs. The sheikh begins his book with this key aphorism because it is of the adab or "proper way" of travelling the spiritual path to focus upon tawhid or the "Divine Oneness," in this context meaning to rely upon Allah, not on works, since. The practice of this knowledge, inwardly and outwardly, with heart and limbs, is the spiritual path or tariqa. Works, whether prayer, or the dhikr or "remembrance" of Allah, or fasting, or jihad, do not cause one to reach the end of the path, but are merely proper manners before the majesty of the Divine while on it.
