Stations of the Travelers: Manâzil as-Sâ'ireen (Paperback)
This book, Man zil as-S 'ireen, is a masterpiece of taṣawwuf written by Imam Abu Ism 'eel 'Abdull h ibn Muhammad ibn 'Ali al-Anṣ ri al-Harawi, one of the greatest Sufi masters of all times. The sheikh was Hanbali in his fiqh and Athari (scripturalist) in his creed. This makes it easier to decipher the symbolism of his statements: a result of the book's brevity and the sheikh's inclination toward linguistic finesse. I provide detailed footnotes for clarification. While I consulted many commentaries on Man zil, including the rather brief commentaries by Imams al-Lakhmi and al-Mun wi, I owe most of my understanding of it to the instruction of my teachers and to Mad rij as-S likeen, another masterpiece written by Imam Ibn al-Qayyim, the erudite scholar who embodied the loving yet critical approach to the great legacy of Islamic spirituality.
