["...contains everything a seeker needs: a sound understanding of Islamic belief; the essentials of sacred law required to perform valid acts of worship; and a detailing of the states and stations of the spiritual path."] (The Muslim World Book Review)
A Concise Description of Jannah (the Garden of Paradise) and Jahannam (the Fire of Hell) is excerpted from the larger work, Al-Ghunya li-Talibi Tariq al-Haqq (Sufficient Provision for Seekers of the Path of Truth). Written almost one thousand years ago by Shaikh 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, whose eminence is universally acknowledged by Muslims of all persuasions including Shaikh al-Islam ibn Taymiyyah, it is translated by Muhtar Holland, one of the foremost translators of classical Arabic. This work will be most valuable to those who seek spiritual knowledge firmly grounded in knowledge of the Qur'an and the Sunnah.
