Selections from the Diwan of Shaykh Salih Al-Ja’fari, Vol. 1 (Bilingual)
Shaykh Salih al-Ja'fari
Ahmad Ali al-Adani (translation)
Paperback, 230 pages
Our master, the illustrious Imam and erudite scholar of al-Azhar, Shaykh Salib al-Ja’fari, authored twelve volumes of poetry dealing with many subjects, ranging from the remembrance and glorification of Allah swt, advice for the one traversing the Spiritual Path to Allah, exalting the excellence of the Beloved ﷺ and the Ahl al-Bayt and the virtues of the Path’s litanies and salawat.
The reality of these poems are that they are not mere poems of a mere poet, but spiritual outpourings of the Muhammadan inheritance. They are elixirs for the souls. With regular recitation and reflection on their meanings, one is transformed by their lights and secrets.
This is the core purpose of the madih of Sidna Shaykh Salih al- Ja’fari; they are transformative and represent acceptance and invitation to the presence of the Prophet ﷺ and his household.
