''Futuhat al Ilahiyya fi Sharh al Mabaahith al-Asliyya''

Translation by : Abdalkhabir al-Munawwarah and Haj Abdassabur al-Ustadh.

Madinah Press


This book is the commentary by Shaykh Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn 'Ajiba al-Hasani on the poem of Ibn al-Banna of Saragossa.

Editor: Shaykh Abdalqadir as-Sufi al-Murabit:


Description from the publisher -- "To travel the path of courtesy and instruction is before everything and the mightiest means to Allah. The most direct access for the slave of his Lord is to keep company with the Gnostics, those who have high yearning and prophetic instruction, and to have courtesy between the hands of the shaykhs who have no blemish and are pure and who know the stations and states of worshippers, zahids, fuqara and sufis. Research their behavior and states. and take on their highly pleasing courtesy. Realise their behaviour and their pure good manners."

Extract from the Book; 
--- ''O you who inquire about the practices of the faqir, you have asked about something which is difficult to elucidate.''   

Practices is the plural of practice. It is the Tariqa. When it is written in another way, it means the Shari'ah. Both are correct with respect to this instance. The faqir is the one who has taken a direction towards the Real on the carpet of sincerity. Sahl, may Allah be pleased with him, said. The faqir is the one who does not own and is not owned. He sees nothing except the time he is in.' As-Suhrawardi may Allah be pleased with him, said, 'Poverty is the basis of sufism, and by it, it stands.' Another said, 'Poverty is an attribute which is abundant. The human nature of the self flees from it. It is one of the means by which the slave sits between the hands of Allah on the carpet of purity.' There is disagreement about whether the faqir is higher than the sufi. ---
