It is often the initial thoughts passing through our minds that have within them sparks of genius reflection. Imam Ibn al-Jawzi recognised the importance of capturing such thoughts before they slip through our conscious and become forgotten; so he did exactly that; he wrote down his ideas; musings and contemplative theories and compiled them in a distinctive work he entitled: â€˜Saydil Khatir'.
Saydil Khatir is from the more unique set of works penned by Ibn al-Jawzi; for it contains many of his personal precepts; estimations and axioms covering a multitude of subject matters; mostly touching upon practical decisions that impact us. It is perhaps for this reason that the book has always been well received in scholarly circles; and continues to be a source of personal counsel; spiritual comfort and social awakening for many who face choices and daily challenges similar to what Ibn al-Jawzi describes herein.
Drawing wisdom and lessons from insights and vast experiences of others leads to good judgement and connecting with much needed critical thinking and self-reflection. The brevity of the book's chapter content cloaks their lasting impressions made to inform and inspire the discerning reader. And by making such rare works accessible to English speaking Muslims; they measurably reflect the Prophetic principle of benefiting sincere advice to others. The end goal of which is to strengthen one's relationship with the Creator and lead a more complete and wholesome way of life on Earth.
This is a unique and inspirational work that will lead every reader wanting to read over and over again. It will Insha'Allah leave a lasting impression and it is sure to be a reference guide for all those who come across it. Many believe that this is a masterpiece of Imam Ibn Jawzi and a book that he was famous for. This landmark text is sure to inspire every soul with the permission of Allah.
