Description from the publisher:

The talks contained in Revelations of the Unseen, short and to the point, are among the most beautiful oratory the world has ever known. Our translations of this and other of the Shakhs works surviving in manuscript form in Oriental collections around the world are intended to make them more widely available and accessible to Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

This is probably the best known of Shaikh 'Abd al-Qadir's works as there have been previous translations of it in both English and German. These are 78 discourses [majalis] that cover a wide range of topics of great importance to the spiritual traveler and are listed in their entirety below:
