“Reflection is the lamp of the heart. If it departs, the heart will have no light.”
(ʻAbd Allāh ibn ʻAlawī al-Ḥaddād)
'Counsels of Religion'
By Imam Al-Haddad (Author)
Thorough and enlightening, this account examines the religious practices of Islam. From discourses on reciting the Qur'an and abiding by the five pillars of Islam--profession of faith, prayers, fasting, giving of alms, and pilgrimage--to the role of taqwa--or God fearing--in attaining a good ending to life, this comprehensive guide touches upon many essential aspects of Islam. Additional chapters cover "Ruinous Things," such as arrogance, resentful envy, and avarice, as well as "Saving Things," including repentance, sincerity, reflection, and short hopes.
