The wisdom literature of Islam stems back to the earliest period. Rooted in an understanding of the Qur’an and the teachings of the Prophet (PBUH), countless scholars spoke words of wisdom that aimed to elucidate truths as well as facilitate the implementation of religious principles. Although he lived during the second millennium, Imam Abdullah b. Alawi al-Haddad (1132/1720) hails from this illustrious line. His blessed compilation of aphorisms, titled Kitab al-Hikam, targets the needs of travelers along the spiritual path. In these weekend sessions, we will take a look at selections from this beneficial work.
