Product details

The Secret of Secrets, considered one of the greatest works of classical Sufi and interpreted here for the first time in English by Shaykh Tosun Bayrak al-Jerrahi, was written by ‘Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani’ (1077-1166), the eponymous founder of the Qadiriya order, the first of the great Sufi brotherhoods which radiate throughout the Islamic World. Born near Caspian Sea, he was the son of the great saint Fatima bint ‘Abdullah al-Sawma’i. After a period of intense intellectual and mystical training ‘Abd Al-Qadir received the Khirqa (robe of initiation) and was soon recognised as a saint and scholar, consulted, loved and revered by caliph and pauper alike. AS one of the most venerated figures in Sufism his Burial place in Baghdad still attracts numerous visitors from many countries
