An Introduction to the Science of Tasawwuf
In the Name of Allah the Most Compassionate the Most Merciful.
Upon the suggestion of the compiler Hazrat Mufti Moosa Badat Sahib I took up the translation of this urdu booklet `Nisbat, Ihsaan & Aamaal-e-Qalbiyyah'. The booklet is an introduction to the Science of Tasawwuf, which has been carefully prepared in a simplified manner to assist individuals especially those living in western countries to understand Tasawwuf. This booklet will prove priceless to both young and old wanting to comprehend and embody themselves with this branch of the Shariah which, inspite of its importance, has been neglected.
I am grateful to all my colleagues who have assisted me in the preparation of this work especially to Maulana Moosa Gora for his contribution in the initial stages.
Before concluding, I wish to apologise for any shortcomings that may have occurred in the translation and presentation of this treatise. If this booklet is read with an open mind in search of spiritual advice, these pages will provide countless gems. Inshallah, they will assist the reader in his self-reformation and guide him on his journey towards the `Love of Almighty Allah'.
Finally, I pray to Allah to accept this humble effort and grant this work divine acceptance. Ameen
