The Book of Assistance, authored by Imam al-Haddad, is widely considered the greatest summary of Islamic spirituality ever written. It summarizes the foundations of Islamic spirituality into 32 succinct, practical chapters covering topics such as certainty, vigilance, knowledge, reflection, prayer, adherence to the sunnah, and much more. The book serves as a comprehensive, practical manual for traveling the path to Allah (swt) and is taught to the present-day by teachers of Islamic spirituality throughout the world.
