Product description

This is a classic Sufi manual on the 'science of the heart'. For Sufis, the 'heart' is the seat of the soul and holds the key to the intimate relationship that exists between soul and body. Each heart, according to this traditional wisdom, possesses four qualities: predatory, animal, demonic and divine. The latter represents our true origin and potential, and by use of the intelligence and spiritual practices enabled by God's grace, we may restore equilibrium to our inner core.

Walter James Skellie was a Presbyterian Minister who earned an M.A. and PhD in Arabic studies from the Hartford Seminary Foundation and served on missions in the Middle East for more than 25 years. T. J. Winter, also known as Abdal Hakim Murad, is currently the ShaZayed Lecturer of Islamic Studies at Cambridge University and the director of studies in theology at Wolfson College. Hamza Yusuf, founder of the Zaytuna Institute and the first American lecturer to teach in Morocco's prestigious and oldest University, the Karaouine in Fes, has translated into modern English several classical Arabic traditional texts and poems.
