Nasim al-Wasl: A Hadra Manual of the Shadhili Order
This classic compendium brings together near three hundred Arabic poems of Islamic spirituality. Penned by some of the greatest Sufi masters, like Abu Madyan and Ahmad al-‘Alawi, these qasidas or odes celebrate and echo the enduring love of the Divine. Rich in symbol and metaphor, they distil the epiphanies of a lifetime’s wayfaring and offer spiritual intuitions to hearts polished by the remembrance of God.
The exquisitely designed anthology comes with free access to an online audio library, home to hundreds of recordings—to learn, sing, and enjoy—translations, and many other resources via a companion website. (Details provided upon purchase.)
