Key Concepts in the Practice of Sufism
by Fethullah Gülen

http://en.fgulen.com/


This book is a comprehensive study of concepts and terms associated with Sufi traditions of Islam. Gulen’s informative analysis of Sufi ideas is a must read for those who seek a understanding of the dynamics of sufism. For Gulen, sufism is a form of self-purification leading to inner dimension of Islamic rituals, a deeper understanding of the divine acts, and a greater knowledge and love of the Divine. The continual process of spiritual development in sufism along a path of the innate human poverty, helplessnes, and powerlessnes before God is undertaken in the knowledge that everything come from God. The Emerald Hills of the Heart presents such sufi concepts like repnetance, reflection, self-criticism, asceticism, piety, abstinence, self-supervision and sincerity.
