The Muslim religious life not only consists of belief in orthodox tenets of faith and a determined effort to follow the Sacred Law, it also requires one to scale the heights of the spiritual path by attaining the states of heart demanded by the Islamic revelation. The Kitab al-Hikam of Shaykh Ibn Ata’illah is a famous and respected explanation of the journey of the soul (known simply as 'the path' or 'the way'), with the Quran and Sunna as the determiners of the principles contained therein. Although the work contains treatises and supplications, its substantive feature is the author’s spiritual aphorisms (264 in total). These aphorisms are presented in this edition according to the arrangement of the great Indian scholar Shaykh Ali al-Muttaqi (d. 1567), together with a commentary by a twentieth-century sage Shaykh Abdullah Gangohi.
