    It's being currently translated into English. Beautiful book and full of benefit for this current time. Please let me know urgently if anyone is translating this. I will stop the translation if someone else has done this or is currently busy with it or has completed a large portion of the work.

    It would be better to read in Arabic even if it does take you longer as that is how your reading of Arabic will improve. The more Arabic books you read the quicker you will get and within a few years you won't need a dictionary.

    Reading Arabic and our heritage books is an essential for the people posting on this forum.

    No it is a passage from the above book which makes interesting reading regarding claimants to being spiritual guides.

    couldn't help it; from the book:

    by my life! these farmers and worksmen are in a better state and closer to Allah ta'ala than these claimants. because all their lives they are engaged in labour and hard work to benefit people.

    and these claimants, all their lives strive to hurt people (khalq).

    the objective of their seclusions and striving penances and their dhikr, litanies at times is to disguise (their true selves) from common folk and as an introduction to their 'path' towards which they invite (common folk) as they claim.

    thus one of them suffers extreme hunger until his humour is altered and he sees suns and stars - a result of food deprivation and he imagines that it is a sign of the 'path' and that he who sees such things is a traveller on the path towards Allah ta'ala.

    rather, all of it is insanity in darkness.
