Kitab al-Hikam of Shaykh Ibn Ata Illah, With Commentary, Ikmal al-Shiyam of Shaykh Abdullah Gangohi
Along with Shaykh Ibn Ata Illah's (d. 1309) treatises and intimate discourses (munajat), the substantive feature of this work is the 264 spiritual aphorisms (hikam) - concise, comprehensive and sublime sayings on self-purification (tazkiya), and guidelines to help strengthen the relationship between human beings and their Lord. These aphorisms are presented in this edition according to the systematic arrangement of the great Indian scholar Shaykh Ali Muttaqi (d. 1567), together with the commentary of Shaykh Abdullah Gangohi (d. 1921).
