|Title:||The Secret of Secrets|
An interpretative translation by Shaykh Tosun Bayrak al Jerrahi.
An interpretative translation by Shaykh Tosun Bayrak of Sir al-Asrar by Hadrat Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (1077-1166), considered by many to be one of the greatest saints of Islam and the eponymous founder of the Qadiriyya order.
This book, appearing in English for the first time, contains the very essence of Sufism, giving a Sufi explanation of how the outward practices of Islam - prayer, fasting, almsgiving and pilgrimage - contain a wealth of inner dimension which must be discovered and enjoyed if external actions are to be performed in a manner pleasing to God. When this is achieved the soul finds true peace and the spiritual life becomes complete.
The book forms a bridge between two of the author's more famous works, Wealth for the Seekers and his Opening of the Unseen. It is said that unless one has discovered the Secret, one may not be able to absorb the impact of Openings.
