Description from the publisher:
In a time of competing worldviews, where reality has been obfuscated by obtuse philosophies and obscured by the façade of worldly allures, the need to revive higher theological truths is as urgent as ever. With An Outpouring of Subtleties upon the Pearl of Oneness, Shaykh Allie Khalfe lights the lamp that uncovers these precious truths, redirecting man’s vision from life’s mundane, outward forms, to its profound, inner meanings.
At the heart of this book lies the translation of Jawhara al-Tawhid, the timeless poem in creed written by Imam Ibrahim al-Laqani. This pearl is further enriched with the commentary of Imam Ibrahim al-Bajuri, Tuhfa al-Murid, followed by selections from the commentaries of Imam Ahmad al-Sawi and Imam ʿAbd al-Salam al-Laqani. Finally, it is completed with numerous insights from the pens of classical and contemporary scholars, as well as the author’s own beneficial notes.
In the second volume of this exhaustive work, the traditional theological topics of Prophethood [nubuwwat] are discussed in a detailed, yet easily accessible and clear fashion. These topics pertain to the sending of Prophets and Messengers, their attributes and that which is necessary, possible, and impossible for them. The greatest attention is paid to the final Prophet and Messenger and best of creation, our master Muhammad S.A.W, his Sacred Law, his miracles, his Companions and the saints and scholars that followed in their footsteps.
“The text of the Jawhara has guided the Sunni community for four hundred years, and there is no reason to assume it will not do the same for the coming four hundred. Shaykh Allie deserves our gratitude and admiration for this gigantic task that will help guide the English speaking Muslim world for generations to come.”
