Shaykh Pirzada’s latest publication is now available for readers of Urdu language. In this book, the author has provided a concise and meaningful treatise on understanding Sufism (tasawwuf) in today’s world. With the Qur’an and Prophetic practice at the core, the book explores Sufism in context of the various important means of propagating Islam.
Imam al-Junayd, rahmatullahi ta’ala ‘alayhi, of Baghdad once said: “The path of the Sufis can only be reached by the one whose right hand holds the Qur’an and the left holds the practice (sunnah) of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace; he continues to move forward with the light emanating from these two lamps, so that he does not fall into the pits of superstition nor find himself lost in the darkness of innovation.”
The book gives a straightforward understanding regarding the way of Sufism, its reality, terminology and its relationship to other religious sciences. The last three chapters examine Sufism in view of Islam’s propagation and challenges of today as well as the countering of extremist narratives and terrorism. Written in the author’s uncomplicated style, the book is a worthy and easy-to-understand read on the subject.
Known for his comprehensive and nourishing manner of writing, Shaykh Muhammad Imdad Hussain Pirzada (founder and principal of Jamia Al-Karam) presents his latest Urdu publication titled ‘Sufism’.
