The Sublime Truths of the Shadhili Path


This is the translation of Imam Jalāl al-Dīn al-Suyūṭī’s magisterial work ‘Tayid al-Haqiqa al-Aliya wa Tashyid  al-Tariqa Shadhiliya’ – on one of the major Sufi Orders – the Shadhili Tariqa. The Shadhili Tariqa is named after one of the most outstanding of the Awliya Shaykh Abū al-Ḥasan al-Shādhilī, who would be visited by scholars, such as Sulṭān al-ʿUlamāʾ Shaykh ʿIzz al-Dīn ibn ʿAbd al-Salām and Shaykh Taqī al-Dīn ibn Daqīq al-ʿĪd.

Imam al-Suyuti who was a Shadhili sufi himself writes writes in erudition about tasawuff and its place as an essential traditional Islamic science.

The Sublime Truths of the Shadhili Path by Imam Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti

Imam al-Suyuti writes in erudition about tasawuff and its place as an essential traditional Islamic science.This work meticulously shows that Shariah compliancy is the basis of the Sufi path, as Imam al-Suyūṭī writes:

The science of Sufism [taṣawwuf] is an inherently noble and exalted science. The guiding imams of Islam, both of old and of recent times, have always carried its torch, honoured its standing, venerated its followers and had faith in its masters; for they are the Friends of Allah and the chosen elect of His servants after the prophets and messengers. Yet there have always been those who have infiltrated it and disguised themselves as such masters, when in truth they are nothing of the kind; they have spoken with neither knowledge nor realisation [taḥqīq], and thus gone astray and led others astray along with them.

With the emergence of the Shadhili Tariqa in the West, this translation will be a welcome addition to traditional Islamic literature in English.

 An essential read – this edition is further enhanced by notes by Shaykh Abdullah ibn Muhammad ibn al-Siddiq al-Ghumari.
