Muhammad the Messenger, may Divine Peace be upon him, reported these words directly from Allah Most High.
O children of Adam, as long as you invoke only Me, pray only to Me, and place all your hope only in Me, I will forgive you whatever you have done, and I will not consider it any further. O children of Adam, even if your errors reached as high as the clouds in the sky and yet you asked for My forgiveness, I would forgive you. O children of Adam, if you came to Me with as many sins as the earth could hold and yet would meet Me without recognizing any other source of power, I would meet you with an equal amount of forgiveness.

This book is a unique collection of 40 Prophetic Traditions by one of the most celebrated teachers and spiritual masters of the Azhar Mosque, Sunni Islam's leading institution of knowledge and its most authoritative voice. It provides a glimpse into the scholarly and spiritual traditions of Islam carried forth into our day. Some may have concluded that the saints and sages of Islam ended with such names as Rumi and Ibn Arabi. The knowledge and spiritual depth reached in past centuries does, in fact, continue into the present day. The book includes a biography of the author, a description of his main teachers, and a beautiful treatise by the author's main teacher on a single Prophetic statement in which the Prophet summarizes his own spiritual states. This volume also deals with death, the afterlife, the waking visions of the Prophet, his ability to pray for and intercede for those alive, and nearness to and friendship with God.
