Description

This class introduces selected aphorisms from a standard premier of Islamic Spirituality, Principles of Islamic Spirituality (Qawāʿid al-taṣawwuf) by the Moroccan jurist Aḥmad ibn Zarrūq (d. 899/1493). The text is written with the objective of “introducing the principles of Islamic Spirituality in a manner that integrates the sacred law (sharīʿa) with the Divine truth (ḥaqīqa), and links the creeds and jurisprudence to the true path of God”, as stated by its author. Zarrūq’s work is considered a continuation of previous attempts to synthesise jurisprudence and Spirituality as two integrated parts of Islam, such in the work of the famous al-Ghazālī. Qawāʿid al-taṣawwuf is thus an essential handbook for seekers who wish to understand the language of Islamic Spirituality and be mindful of the meanings related to its of their practice.
