THE BOOK OF CERTAINTY- The Sufi Doctrine of Faith, Vision and Gnosis

A little gem which refracts some of the most essential elements of Sufi gnosis based on traditional Quranic esoteric exegesis. The book expresses in the language of Sufism some of the universal truths which lie at the heart of all religions. The first authentic modern account of Sufi teaching written “from within”; enjoyable and instructive, this book is an excellent introduction to Sufism; highly intelligent, balanced, lucid, well written and in places really eloquent. The author was asked by a friend to set down in writing what he considered to be the most important things that a human being can know. He was also asked to make it very easy, and despite the depth of all that it contains, it has in fact a remarkable simplicity and clarity, due, no doubt, to the constant use of traditional imagery which awakens and penetrates the imagination.

“Abu Bala Siraj ad-Din has bestowed upon the world a great benefaction in giving it this very important Sufi treatise, for, belonging as it does to our own time, it is easier for us to assimilate than are the treatises and commentaries of Sufis of old.” —Islamic Quarterly
