Allah Most High revealed to the noble Moses, may peace be upon him:
I will teach you five truths that are the pillars of universal religion. As long as you have not heard that My Kingdom has ceased, do not abandon obedience to Me. As long as you have not learned that My Treasures are exhausted, do not be concerned about your sustenance. As long as you have not heard that the enemy of humanity has been defeated, do not feel exempt from surprise attack and do not cease to oppose Satan. As long as you have not heard that I have forgotten all your actions of the past, and future, do not be critical of My other servants. As long as you have not yet entered My Paradise, do not feel that My testing of you has come to an end.
(Khabar 74 was transmitted by the sage Yunus, relying on the sage Janir, who provided its lineage to the Prophet, upon him be peace. It is recorded in Ibn Arabi's 'Mishkat al-Anwar'.)
'The Book of Wisdom'

Two early Sufi classics are contained here in one volume. They embody the essence of spiritual life in the Islamic tradition. Ibn 'Ata' Illah (c. 1250-1309) was a Sufi saint and sage who lived in Egypt. Kwaja Abdullah Ansari (1006-1089) was one of major early writers of Persian mystical literature.
