Product Description

Annotated and includes sections of the Holy Qur'an and Prophetic (SAW) Traditions.

Witnessing Perfection addresses the concerns of those who are aware that an urgent redress in the balance between head and heart is needed and comprehended that this can only be fulfilled by personal spiritual development.

Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri explores the process of spiritual growth starting with the discovery that the basic dynamic in creation is duality and the balance of opposites whose roots are the one cosmic source of all life.

Witnessing Perfection delves into the universal question of deity and the purpose of life, with the appreciation that these are dilemmas clarified only by the image of unity, wherein all dualities and diversities fuse cohesively. Durable contentment is a result of this perfected vision.

ABOUT SHAYKH FADHLALLA HAERI

Acknowledged as a master of self-knowledge and a spiritual philosopher, Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri’s role as a teacher grew naturally out of his own quest for self-fulfillment.

He travelled extensively on a spiritual quest which led to his eventual rediscovery of the pure and original Islamic heritage of his birth, and the discovery of the truth that reconciles the past with the present, the East with the West, the worldly with the spiritual – a link between the ancient wisdom teachings and our present time.

A descendant of five generations of well-known and revered spiritual leaders, Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri has taught students throughout the world for over 30 years.

He is a gifted exponent of how the self relates to the soul, humankind’s link with the Divine, and how consciousness can be groomed to reflect our higher nature.

The unifying scope of his perspective emphasizes practical, actionable knowledge that leads to self-transformation, and provides a natural bridge between seemingly different Eastern and Western approaches to spirituality, as well as offering a common ground of higher knowledge for various religions, sects and secular outlooks.

He is a prolific author of more than thirty books relating to the universal principles of Islam, the Qur’an, and its core purpose of enlightenment.

His other eBooks are listed at http://www.zahrapublications.com.

Editorial Review #1:

This book could just as well have been titled 'Witnessing God' for God alone is perfect. Add to that Plotinus's assertion that 'he who witnesses beauty becomes beautiful,' and we are deep into this book's character. As I read it, it dawned on me early on that I was in effect reading an icon, for I was not so much looking at its pages as seeing God through them.

Houston Smith

Editorial Review #2:

This book's importance is that it successfully translates the wisdom of Sufism into a universal language accessible to the contemporary world. There are few people alive that could have accomplished this task.
