The Garden of the Gnostics: Bustan al’Arifeen

A beautifully text written by the erudite islamic scholar Imam Yahya ibn Sharaf al-Nawawi (d. 676/1277) perhaps more widely for his works in hadith.  He was a renowned scholar and jurist who dedicated his life to the pursuit of Islamic learning.

This text has been rendered in to the English language by one of the most prolific translators of Classical Arabic texts into the English language, Aisha Abdurrahman at Tarjumana Bewley.

Imam Nawawi says

“The Purpose of this book is to make clear to you how to travel this path. It will show you how to take on the excellent qualities I have described. Allah willing, I will mention some of the pearls and realities of Gnostics. It will be composed in such a way so as not bore the reader and so as to render its subject matter easy to remember. Allah willing I will quote some of the uplifting sayings of the salaf.”
