Designed with a structured and accessible format, these reliable handbooks draw upon Qur’anic verses and authentic Prophetic sayings (ahadith) to provide assurance and guidance for seekers of all ages. Utilizing them under the tutelage of a shaykh (a senior scholar and guide) or mentor would serve as an unequivocal path to navigate away from the allure of dark addictions and emotional afflictions prevalent in the modern world.
The first book derives inspiration from the profound writings of Imam Al-Ghazali (may Allah be pleased with him), illuminating the detrimental traits that hinder our progress. ‘A Handbook of Spiritual Medicine’ conveniently presents a comprehensive breakdown of symptoms, remedies, and exceptions for each trait. The second book, ‘A Handbook of Accepted Prayers’, serves as a condensed compendium of supplications (du’as) accompanied by contextual guidance for their appropriate use. These supplications have been meticulously selected from the Qur’an and Prophetic sayings, and the book frequently references esteemed luminaries of the past, such as Ibn Al-Qayyim Al-Jawziyyah (may Allah have mercy upon him), for inspiration.
