Description from the publisher:

A treasury of Sufi commentary by an author whose stunning interpretations and penetrating insights are rare; even among the most renowned of Sufi authors; The Qur'an and the Prophet in the Writings of Shaykh Ahmad al-Alawi presents for the first time in English all of the collected works of al-Alawi on the two guiding principles of Islam. The Shaykh had embarked on a full commentary on the Qur'an; but only completed an introduction explaining his approach to Qur'anic exegesis and commentaries on three chapters before his death. All of these pieces are included in the book; along with an additional appendix of answers to questions that the Shaykh's disciples had put to him on the Qur'an. The commentaries are followed by a profound treatise on the meaning of the invocation of blessings on the Prophet which delves into the spiritual nature of the Prophet; explaining how he represents both the summit of spiritual attainment and the example for all those seeking enlightenment. This study fills an important hole in English on Qur'anic exegesis; and Sufi exegesis in particular.

Shaykh Ahmad al-Alawi was the founder of a popular modern Sufi order; the Darqawiyya Alawiyya. He is one of the most important Sufi saints of the last century. Khalid Williams is a translator who specializes in translations from Arabic with a particular focus on Islamic studies and Sufism.
