From the Back Cover

SUFISM

THE WAY OF SUFI CHIVALRY

A highly respected Sufi saint and scholar of the 10th century, Ibn al-Husayn al-Sulami compiled this book as a guide to enlightened behavior for the spiritual aspirant. In its pages, he records the teachings of renowned spiritual masters (available for the first time in English translation) as well as tales and quotations from the Koran and Hadith. The teachings reveal the true meaning of compassion, love, friendship, generosity, and hospitality, as well as the right actions associated with these virtues. According to the Sufis, Futuwwah is a code of honorable behavior that follows the example of the prophets, saints, and sages. By adhering to its precepts, the student learns detachment from the ego. The Way of Sufi Chivalry addresses the reader directly, providing the aspirant of today with living guidance on the path of perfection and the way of Sufism.

Cover illustration: The Turkish calligraphy is an invocation for the help and assistance of Hasan and Husayn, the two martyred grandsons of the Prophet, and reads Madad ya Hasan Husayn.

Bismillah. This book contains wonderful examples of how we muslims have the ability to emulate some of the good character that the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) displayed. Those who aren't muslim can benefit from this book, because with help from a muslim friend, they could get a broader idea of who muslims are. This book was easy to read and inspired me in many ways. Allah bless the writer and translators.

If you're a Muslim this book offers a few insights on basic teachings of all major religions which is the "Golden Rule".
