I can see a lot of what Dr. Josef Murphy mentioned in his great book "the power of your subconscious mind" in this book.
The subconscious mind listens to the prayers and helps us achieve what we ask for. It shows that the pure and original version of all the religions are very common and helpful to the human being to live successful and peaceful life while the tendency to argue and challenge is the road to conflict.
Anyway, this book helped me so many times to come back to a very nice peaceful state of mind and I hope it will help everyone who read it
The book is to the point and is deep but simple to understand. It speaks to the heart with its various topics on dhikr. Also, it has a beneficial chapter on salah that describes the tricks of Shaitan during prayer.
Good book so far alhamduliLah
For much of the past 60 or more years it has been largely believed that ibn Taymiyya and his student ibn al-Qayyim were violently opposed to Sufism and little research put forward to say otherwise. It was not until the book Sufism and Shari'ah came out that many began to question both the Saudi line and their opponents that ibn Taymiyya and his student were anti Sufi.
It is now almost universally accepted that they were both followers of the Qadiri Sufi order founded by Abdul Qadir Jilani who belonged to the Hanbali school of thought that they did and that both of them were hardly critics of Sufism itself but rather certain aspects of Sufism (Just as later many Naqshbandi Sufis would be, just as Imam Birgivi was in Ottoman Turkey)
What I would ask however is if the Islamic text society wished to publish a book by ibn Qayyim which would prove his reverence for Sufism then why pick this book and not the Madarij as-Salikin a commentary upon a text by a well known Hanbali Sufi Abdullah Ansari??? My second question is WHY HAVE YOU NOT PRINTED THIS BOOK WITH ITS ORIGINAL ARABIC TEXT????? But rather given us "The arabic text of recomened invocations and suplications"
The translation is exellent but without the Arabic it has realy been let down. I would recomend this book to anyone studying Hanbali Sufism (The book Abdullah Ansari of Herat would also be of use as would 'Love theory in Hanbalite Islam')
