English Translation of part of Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya's al-Wabil al-Sayyib.
In describing al-Wabil al-Sayyib, the author says, ‘We have mentioned [in it] nearly one hundred benefits of remembrance of God [dhikr], and the secrets of remembrance...This is a book of great usefulness.’
Written in the fourteenth century by the renowned theologian Imam Ibn Qayyim al-Jawziyya, this treatise movingly details the many blessings of the remembrance of Allah.
This beautifully written work is a genuine contribution to Muslim spirituality. What makes it of great interest is that it illustrates the spiritual life of Ibn Qayyim and of his teacher, the Hanbalite reformer Imam Ibn Taymiyya (1263AH/1328AD).
