A Handbook of Spiritual Medicine Hardback

Ibn Daud

Hardback

 

This spiritual guide to the self is a handbook of tazkiyah or ‘self-purification’. Not only does it illustrate the maladies of the human spiritual condition, it recognises the struggles and insecurities we all succumb to from time to time, and offers up the remedies.

 

The antidotes to our ailments are drawn from Qur’ānic verses and authentic ahādīth (Prophetic sayings), inspiring mindfulness of the Almighty Cherisher and His Beloved Prophet ﷺ. This guidebook draws on the 12th-Century works of Imam Abū Hāmid Al-Ghazālī.
