- Publisher : Ansari Publications
- Language : English
- Paperback : 180 pages
Grand Masters of Sufism brings together in one volume two paramount texts from two of the most influential shaykhs in the history of Sufism. Abdul Qadir Geylani’s Secret of Secrets and Ahmed er Rifai’s Guidance to Mysticism present key concepts of the Sufi path in profound detail and can each stand alone as a work of unparalleled authority. Together, they comprise a veritable textbook for students of Sufism and all who would seek a deeper understanding of the mysteries of spiritual life.
In this first English translation of Guidance to Mysticism, Shaykh Taner Ansari provides rich commentary that preserves the original text, while at the same time making it relevant to modern sensibilities.
As Pir of the Qadiri Rifai Sufi Tariqa, Shaykh Taner draws on the lineage of his venerable and beloved masters for a unique and authentic translation of these texts. The result of his endeavor is Grand Masters of Sufism, a book wrought in reverence and love.
