The Exquisite Pearl: The Journey to Allah and the Home of the Hereafter . Of all the faculties’ man has been endowed with, none excels the heart in importance and nobility.

The heart’s spiritual sustenance lie sin its being receptive to the effusions of divine grace and guidance, without which the veils that cover it will continue to corrupt its primordial purity, gradually rendering it dysfunctional!

The nature and brevity of this book is such that it may be regarded as a primer to the science of suluk, or Muslim Spirituality. Continue reading
