Topic: Islam - Sufism
Sharia for Sufi Muslims is the base of their belief, laws, and practice. Haqiqa is the essence, the fundamental truth that leads - through worship, devotion, love, and fear - to the knowledge and recognition of the Divine, Allah. It paves the way towards harmonious living in this world and to eternal bliss in Paradise. Thus to describe Sufism simply as mysticism and Sufis only as mystics is to deny both their base and their legitimacy. The haqiqa of the Sufi Muslim cannot exist without the Qur'an and the Sunna (Prophetic traditions).
This translation of the Wasiyya - The Bequest - is but an approximation of the deep yet elegantly and lucidly stated meanings of the sharia and the haqiqa of Islam. It addresses not only the followers of the Samaniyya Order, but all men and women, young and old, who care to listen to the advice of a noble spirit and a great Sufi Muslim, whose influence transcends his time and place.
