More About the Author
Bakhtiar is the leading authority on spiritual chivalry, most clearly expressed in the Sufi Enneagram, also known as the Greater Struggle. She has also translated over 30 books on Islam and the Islamic movement into English.
Bakhtiar is the first woman to present a critical translation the Quran in any language. In her Sublime Quran translation she interprets the controversial verse that has lead to domestic violence in the Islamic community to the way the Prophet understood it. Instead of husbands being allowed to beat their wives, she translates: "husbands should go away," let the anger subside and then consult with one another.
Her translation has been introduced into evidence in child custody cases in the United States to counteract Muslim husbands saying that their religion allows them to beat their wives and is available for free viewing on www.islamawakened.com as well as having been chosen by HRH Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad of Jordan to appear on his website, www.altafsir.com for the 6 million+ visitors to his website.
Bakhtiar is presently Director of the Institute of Traditional Psychology and Resident Scholar at Kazi Publications.

The book's content talks to you so directly and strikingly that it dumbfounds you to imagine someone wrote it a 1000 years ago.
If you are a believer (no matter what religion), you will find this book no less than a hidden treasure. It will help make your connection to God stronger by answering many questions you may have. Even if you don't believe in God, it will still give you insight into your own self from angles that will keep you thinking for a while.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough and wish there were more stars I could give it.
He true sees what is inside of the ideas of alquran and gives to the reader a new perspective, a beatiful view of the inner workings of the heart and the creator.
When you read, you are going to recognize his critics about the situation today even when he writes well before this time. He criticizes the "scholars" for narrow view of the alquran and the islam, making the word more important than the heart..
I really recommend this.
knowledge about our Creator......
This book is one section from the Imam Ghazzali's Ihya Ulum al Din.
