Westport: PIR Press, 1988. First edition. The Irshad is regarded by many as the most important work in Islamic spirituality for our time and a testament to the fact that Sufism is a living tradition. The work charts the Sufi spiritual path and discipline through discourse and dialogue, story and prayer, scriptural commentary and spontaneous mystical teachings in worship and action. The Irshad addresses not only Sufis, but all those who are attracted to the spiritual life and the truths that ultimately constitute the very fiber and substance of the human soul. Hardbound in fine condition in very good dust jacket. Item #13306
Translated with an Introduction by Muhtar Holland; Preface by Seyyed Hossein Nasr; 725 pages.
