Description from the publisher:
To the Sufis, the healing of the sick is considered to be the most important of all services to humanity. For the first time in the West, the author presents the secret principles and practices of this divine science, based on the 800-year tradition of the Chishti Order. Among the many topics covered are dietary recommendations of the Prophet, the preparation of herbal formulas, healing with essential oils, illnesses arising at various stages of the souls evolution, fasting and prayer, talismans, and the “infallible remedy.” Central to the doctrine of Sufi healing are the connections between health, the heart, wholeness, and holiness. This book, written by the Shaykh of the American order of Chishtis, unlocks the origin of miracles through which the Sufis gain access to God’s attributes and effect them in their healing ministry.
