Not to mention Shaykh Hamza's commentary being very understandable, and able to give one a better actualization of the translated text.

Format: Paperback
It doesn't matter what your faith is, this is a book worth reading. It address very real human problems that we are facing especially after the events of 9/11. It was very surprising for me to read that Hamza Yusuf was trained in traditional/classical Islam. I always thought that traditional Islam, (the madrasas system that I hear about on CNN and Fox News), was the cause of some Muslims fanatical nature. I thought Mr. Yusuf's speeches were very insightful ([...] - under the audio section).

I think non-Muslims and especially MUSLIMS (the ones that are shown on TV yelling and screaming all of the time) can benefit a great deal from this book.

Format: Paperback
This is perhaps one of the most important books for muslims that has been written in a long time. The point of Islam, the ultimate goal, is to transform ourselves until we have attained to a pure heart. The Qur'an itself says that, "On the day of judgement no one is safe save the one who returns to God with a pure heart". When we die everything will pass away and all we will be left with is our hearts and our deeds. This is why purifying our hearts is of uptmost importance and this book transmits the distilled wisdom of the ancient doctors of the heart. Reading this book will give you the tools to identify and treat all the diseases of your heart, its just up to you to put it into action.

I should also mention that this book is the outgrowth of a 24-tape audio lecture on the same poem. The audio was also done by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf.

This is an excellent book the would help anyone understand how Islam spread. It'll show why people like the Mongols who conqured muslims became muslims themselves.

For anyone that wants a non-bias view of Islam should read this book.

Format: Paperback
I think this book is great for Non-Muslims more than it is for Muslims because it sheds light on the beauty and gentle ways of true Muslims and their ways of life. It asks people to look within themselves and accept who they are first and foremost and then start eliminating the negative aspects and characteristics in ones self in order to live in harmony with a clean and healthy heart. This book has inspired me and shown me how easy it is to clean my heart from all the anger and greed. It has shown me that gratitude is the best way to live life, being grateful for every little thing i have as opposed to feeling bad and angry at what i dont have.

This is a must read for everybody seeking to better their lives.

This book is very well written. It addresses the diseases of the heart and ways to get rid of them. I think every human being should have a copy of this book in his or her library. I recommend reading the whole book at least once and then using it as a reference from time to time.
