This book answers many of the questions often asked by seekers of inward illumination.
- What are the real implications of the doctrine of divine unity?
- How can proper concentration be achieved during spiritual exercises?
- When should one avoid participating in Sufi gatherings?
- What is the relationship between the tongue, the mind, and the heart?
- How is one to understand visions received in sleep?
The work also includes the author’s commentary on a poem on inner wayfaring which speaks of the most exalted stations of the path and goes on to explain a number of paradoxes of the Way, such as the reason as why the saints usually refuse to deploy their miraculous powers, preferring to concentrate on self-scrutiny and the compassionate guidance of others. These points are illustrated with references to the famous mystical poems of Ibn al-Farid and Abu Madyan.
