There are many books in English which present Sufi doctrine, but few which can be used as practical travel guides along the Path. The 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. Badawi, this manual of devotions, prayers and practical ethics will be invaluable to all who are interested in the Prophet and the Sufi way.
