The Book of Certainty - Sufi Doctrine of Faith, Vision and Gnosis

Author(s): Abu Bakr Siraj Ad-Din; Martin Lings (Translator)

Religious Debate

'To express in the language of Sufism, that is, Islamic mysticism, some of the universal truths which lie at the heart of all religions'--this is the book's avowed purpose. It came into being because the author was asked by a friend to set down in writing what he considered to be the most important things that a human being can know. He was also asked to make it very easy, and despite the depth of all that it contains, it has in fact a remarkable simplicity and clarity, due no doubt to the constant use of traditional imagery which awakens and penetrates the imagination.
