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. Soundly based on the Qur’an and Hadith, this book is invaluable to all who love the Prophet (saw) and his way.
In this monthly class, Shaykh Abdul Karim Yahya will guide attendees through the Book of Assistance, covering each lesson with a special focus on what we can do now to apply the Imam’s teachings, improve our spiritual states, and strengthen our relationship with Allah (swt).
