A Journey to God

Reflections on the Hikam of Ibn Ata'illah

Jasser Auda


The ultimate yearning of the human soul is to return to its Lord in a state where He is pleased with His servant and the servant is pleased with their Master. This book offers unique insights to prepare you for the journey to God through the wisdom of the great spiritual master Ibn Ata'illah al-Iskandari as expounded in his masterpiece al-Hikam. This is the ultimate quest of the human soul; however, without knowledge of the spiritual path, the journey will be more challenging and full of obstacles. This book covers various topics on what can be learnt to make the journey such as: improving you character, becoming aware of and concerned with the spirit and the feelings of the heart, discovering your faults and shortcomings, humbling yourself and concentrating in your prayers.

"Wonderful, short, simple and yet profound"

Dr. Auda has taken very old Islamic wisdom and translated it into layman's terms for the masses.
You don't need to be a world renowned Sheikh to understand the simple and yet at once profound messages contained therein. All you need to do is take time for an often forgotten and very important act of worship - reflection.
