|Title:||Adornment of Hearts|
Zinatu-l-Qulub by Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak Al-Jerrahi
Sources in Western languages deal with Sufism from a variety of perspectives. One might say that the works are written either by "outsiders" or "insiders." The insiders speak, or claim to speak, on behalf of the Sufi tradition itself. One of the best of them is Sheikh Muzaffer. His works demonstrate that integral Islam is still very much alive.
The present work is basically a handbook for practitioners of the Halveti-Jerrahi Sufi Order. But anyone interested in Sufism on any level will find it useful. Members of other Sufi orders, and Muslims in general, will find a wealth of practical instruction on how to live their lives in a way that is pleasing to God.
Serious seekers from all traditions will find many examples of Islam's intimate kinship with their own paths. Scholars will find an excellent and authoritative contemporary expression of teachings that are often relegated to dusty manuscripts. General readers curious about Islam will find an antidote against the reports in the media. – from the Introduction.
