About the Author
Imam Birgivi was a 16th century Sufi scholar whose influence on Islamic morals and ethics continues to this day. This book is still being used as a text in many of the most important faculties of theology and in universities of many Muslim countries. In our day, which is characterised by a great misunderstanding of Islam, this outline of the ideal Islamic society as it was at the time of the Prophet Muhammad is especially pertinent. Through recourse to traditional sources, Imam Birgivi portrays the beauty and depth of the prophet’s character and in so doing he provides an example for all Muslims. Because these virtues are of universal importance and pertain to man as such, this book offers a path of wisdom for all believers of all faiths.
