This book unlocks the secrets of the seven degrees through which the soul progresses as it travels the Sufi path to its Lord.
It teaches the novice how to transform the Inciting Soul (al-nafs al-ammara), the lowest and the most egotistic of the self’s manifestations, into the Reproachful Soul (al-nafs al-lawwama), which must then become Inspired, Serene, Contented, and Found Pleasing, until it attains the ultimate degree of sanctity and wholeness as the Perfect Soul. To achieve this progressive purification of the self, special Sufi practices, litanies, and attitudes of mind are recommended. Both practical and profound, this book offers a concise manual of Sufi teaching on the way to spiritual liberation.
