Fifteen Questions You Should Ask Your Religious Teacher is a good place to start your journey. The questions presented in this book to this particular religious teacher, Sheikh Nazim al-Haqqani, were all asked without any time permitted for preparation or contemplation. We asked the questions before a small public gathering and he answered them immediately and in one sitting.
It is important to note that the interviewer and compiler of this book, at the time he presented these questions to Sheikh Nazim al-Haqqani, were in search of a teacher for himself. He was determined to continue to ask these very same questions of as many religious teachers as necessary, from whatever faith groups, until satisfied that he had truly found a real teacher whom he could trust.

– 99 Drops from Endless Mercy Oceans
99 Sohbets of Maulana Shaykh Nazim Adil al Haqqani ar Rabbani . Only by the light of the Spiritual Path and the mystic way can the Truth be discovered. In order for one to truly witness the Perfection of the Absolute, one must see with one’s inner being, which perceives the whole of Reality. This witnessing happens when one becomes perfect, losing one’s (partial) existence in the Whole. If the Whole is likened to the Ocean, and the part to a drop, the sufi says that witnessing the Ocean with the eye of a drop is impossible. However, when the drop becomes one with the Ocean, it sees the Ocean with the eye of the Ocean – 303 pages( free download) or buy copy ( money goes to Charity projects)
– 99 gouttes des Océans infinis de Miséricorde 99 Sohbas de Mawlana Sheikh Nazim al-Haqqani ar-Rabbani. C’est seulement par la lumière de la voie spirituelle et du chemin mystique que la vérité peut être découverte. Pour vraiment témoigner de la perfection de l’Absolu, il faut voir avec son être intérieur, qui perçoit la totalité de la Réalité. Ce témoignage est possible quand on devient parfait, quand on perd l’existence (partielle) dans le Tout. Si le Tout est comparé à l’océan, et l’individu, à la goutte, le soufi dit qu’être témoin de l’océan avec l’oeil d’une goutte est impossible. Cependant, lorsque la goutte devient une avec l’océan… …alors elle voit l’Océan à travers l’oeil de l’Océan. download gratuit
Als we God vergelijken met de Oceaan en de individuele mens met een druppel, kunnen we zeggen dat het doel van het soefisme is om de druppel naar de oceaan te dragen. De meester van het pad is als een rivier die in verbinding staat met de oceaan. De druppel moet zichzelf er toe aanzetten om naar de rivier te komen, zodat deze kan worden meegenomen naar de oceaan.
Het is niet nodig te benoemen dat voordat de druppel de oceaan heeft bereikt, met
hulp van de rivier, eerst verschillende moeilijke uitdagingen zal moeten overwinnen.
Het zal te maken krijgen met een hoop turbulentie, door verschillende botsingen in
de rivier, zodat het uiteindelijk in sereniteit en stabiliteit kan samenvloeien met de
oceaan. free download Of het boek 99 Druppels bestellen hier
– A Fragrance of Hajja Aminah Adil
This collection of sohbats of Hajja Aminah Adil was recorded during a visit to Lefke, Cyprus between June 27th and July 30th of the year 2004. Some of them were told to the group of women who gathered around the large table in the Shaykh’s house every afternoon. Hajja Amina was well known for her stories. She gathered them from many sources. These sohbets were given in either Arabic or Turkish. She told these stories to her four children when they were growing up. Then she began telling them to the murids of the Shaykh who gathered, like her children, around her. She had a way of telling them that engaged and captivated everyone. They were a source of entertainment but they also provided subtle guidance and insight and understanding that lasts a lifetime. That is why we feel it is so important to pass themn to those who did not have the opportunity to experience themselves. 144 pages (free download) or buy a copy ( money goes to Charity projects)
This impressive biographical work deftly weaves translated accounts from authentic Ottoman Turkish texts with ancient lore, resulting in a compelling, unforgettable portrait of the founder of Islam as seen through the eyes of Muslims around the world. Dowload here

– La Voie Soufie de l’Amour / The Sufi Path of Love
Who better than Sultan Valad could explain to us the teachings of his father? Rumi’s eldest son was his intimate friend and confidant. For seventy years, says Aflaki, he illuminated the words of his father and master, miraculous, eloquent, in deciphering the mysteries and interpretation. The Master awakens the sleepy soul of the student and allows him to climb the ascending steps to Paradise. He describes us the Skills of Soul Rapture. Mawlana Rumi himself says: “I have studied a lot of science and have worked hard to offer rare and valuable things to researchers and scientists who come to me, it is God the Supreme who has decided so”. He said also to his son: “O Bahâ-ud-Din, my coming into this world has come to prepare yours, for all the words that I say are speeches, but you, you are my action.” It is a message for all times, a revelation of wisdom for our time. free download
Het boek De kunde van Ziel’s vervoering (Kitab al-Ma’ârif) is geschreven door Sultan Valad. Sultan Valad was de zoon van Jalal ad-Din Rumi. Jalal ad-Din Rumi werd geboren in Balkh in Khorasan in 1207. Rumi was zelf de zoon van een eminente leraar, Baha-ud-Din Valad, die ook “de sultan van de geleerden” werd genoemd. Het is in zijn nagedachtenis dat zijn kleinzoon, Sultan Valad, ook Baha-ud-Din werd genoemd. Ooit vertelde Rumi zijn zoon: “O Bahâ-ud-Dîn, mijn komst naar deze wereld gebeurde toevallig om de uwe voor te bereiden; want alle woorden die ik zeg, zijn preken, maar jij, jij bent mijn daad. ” free download
Dear Beloved Son / Ayyuhal Walad Al Ghazali
I seek Allahs refuge from the knowledge which is of no benefit”. This disciple of Imam Ghazali (RA) kept thinking along these lines for a few days and then wrote a letter to Imam Ghazali (RA) with the view of getting an answer to his dilemma along with some other questions. Furthermore, he asked in his letter to Imam Ghazali (RA) for some advice and to teach him a supplication that he could always recite. He wrote in his letter that although Imam Ghazali (RA) has written numerous books on this issue,this weak individual is in need of something that he could always study and always act upon its injunctions. In reply to his letter, Imam Ghazali (RA) sent him the following advices. free download

Keeping Company with a Saint by Nabil Ibrahim
»This is Nabil’s picture of a Saint whose greatest miracle was being able to be everything to every-one. However perceptive, this is only a piece of the puzzle to which each one of us is in possession of a different piece. But the love he so powerfully gives voice to, is ours, all of ours, the same. We are left with this book – a tribute both to the Master and to the murid.« to order here
Mawlana Sheikh Nazim Al-Haqqani moved from this world to the next on Wednesday the 7th of May, 2014, the 8th of Rajab, 1435 AH. This event left most of us simply speechless, struck dumb, stunned and tearless, in the depths of our loss. Nabil, however, found the voice to speak, the words to express something of the love and gratitude we all feel for an incomparable Master. And beyond that, he had some really practical advice on how we can adjust to our new reality, advice about the right attitude with which to face the future. To put it simply, the Sheikh is not dead, keep your eyes on the Sheikh.
Nabil’s memories, his understandings are, of course, inimitably his. When you read these articles you see the world through his eyes. This is Nabil’s picture of a Saint whose greatest miracle was being able to be everything to everyone. However perceptive, this is only a piece of the puzzle to which each one of us is in possession of a different piece. But the love he so powerfully gives voice to, is ours, all of ours, the same.
In the days following Mawlana’s passing, Nabil composed these short articles as emails, which he sent out to those he thought would appreciate them. They brought so much comfort and clarity to the recipients that he was persuaded to publish them for a wider audience. So he arranged for the editing and for the publishing in a strangely insistent way that we didn’t understand.
Then on Friday March 20, 2015 Nabil died suddenly from unknown causes in his mother’s home in Cairo, 317 days after his beloved Master.
We are left with this book – a tribute both to the Master and to the murid.

Met Hart en Ziel bevat foto’s die de jonge fotograaf Joseph Wigley maakte van de zogenaamde Naqshbandi Soefi’s in Nederland en Duitsland. Het is de eerste keer dat de besloten wereld van deze Soefi’s hier is gefotografeerd en gepubliceerd.
Het is niet eenvoudig om met je verstand het soefisme te vatten. Daarom is er gekozen voor een fotoboek omdat beelden meer zeggen dan woorden. Ze zijn gemaakt tijdens huiskamerbijeenkomsten op twee plaatsen in Amsterdam en in het Duitse Kall. De meditatieve methode die de Soefi’s gebruiken tijdens de Zikr lijkt op de mantra’s van Boeddhisten. Het zijn oefeningen waarin voortdurend woorden of korte zinnetjes worden herhaald in het Arabisch. Verder zijn er foto’s van de Hadra (een soort religeuze dans) en de Bayat (inwijding).
Deze uitgave hoopt meer bekendheid te geven aan deze mystieke stroming die haar oorsprong vindt in de Islam en bekend staat om haar zachtmoedigheid en vredelievendheid. De vormgeving is van Gert Jan Slagter, de teksten zijn van Rolf van Hulten, de uitgever is Kalamiteit in Dokkum. Te bestellen hier

The Key to Salvation: A Sufi Manual of Invocation
This is the first English translation of Miftah al-falah, a thirteenth century Sufi text, written by Ibn Ata Allah, one of the great masters of the Shadhili Sufi order. It is considered to be one of his most important works because it sets out the principles of actual Sufi mystical practices, shedding light on the sacred invocations, and associated practices, such as the spiritual retreat. Written in a clear, lucid style, it offers a glimpse into the Sufi world of the 7th Islamic century and allows us to see almost at first hand how the novice was guided by the Sufi Shaykh and, above all, the purpose and preparation involved in engaging in the invocation, dhikhru’llah. Ibn Ata’ Allah sets out to define it, to explain its nature and power, to show its results and to prove that it is part of the Prophet’s Sunna, or practice. The author goes to great lengths to point out many Qur’anic verses where dhikru’llah is mentioned and cites many noted authorities. Read here
- Muwatta Imam Malik
Muwaṭṭaʾ (Arabic: الموطأ, “well-trodden path”) or Muwatta Imam Malik (Arabic: موطأ الإمام مالك) of Imam Malik (711–795) written in the 8th-century, is the earliest collection of hadith texts comprising the subjects of Islamic law, compiled by the Imam, Malik ibn Anas. Malik’s best-known work, Al-Muwatta was the first legal work to incorporate and combine hadith and fiqh (except possibly for Zayd ibn Ali’s Musnad.
It is considered to be from the earliest extant collections of hadith that form the basis of Islamic jurisprudence alongside the Qur’an. It includes reliable hadith from the people of the Hijaz, as well as sayings of the companions, the followers and also those who came after them. The book covers rituals, rites, customs, traditions, norms and laws of the time of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
It is reported that Imam Malik selected for inclusion into the Muwatta just over 1900 narrations, from the 100,000 narrations he had available to him.
It contains a record of the exemplification by the last Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, of the message of the Qur’an, the practice (‘amal) of the people of Madinah of the first generations, a transmission of the ethos that permeated the city, and Imam Malik’s painstaking clarification of the Sunna, the hadiths, the practice and legal judgements. Ash-Shafi’i’ said, “After the Book of Allah, there is no book on the face of the earth sounder than the book of Malik.”
‘Ala’ ad-Daan Maghlatay al-Hanafi said, “The first person to compile the sahih was Malik.” Ibn Hajar said, “The book of Malik is sound by all the criteria that are demanded as proofs in the mursal, munqati’ and other types of transmission.” As-Suyuti followed Ibn Hajar’s judgement and said, “It is absolutely correct to say that the Muwatta’ is sound (sahih) without exception.” Al-Bukhari and Muslim transmitted most of its hadiths and included them in their sahih collections. The authors of the rest of the six books, the Imam of the hadith scholars, Ahmad ibn Hanbal, and others did the same. Here FREE download
