The Sufi Science of Self-Realization: A Guide to the Seventeen Ruinous Traits, the Ten Steps to Discipleship, and the Six Realities of the Heart [Paperback]

Shayk Muhammad Hisham Kabbani


Available from these sellers.



Book Description

April 1 2006 Fons Vitae Living Spiritual Masters series
This 10-step program describes the science of eliminating the 17 ruinous characteristics of the tyrannical ego—as set forth by Sufi master Abu 'l-Hasan al-Kharqani—in order to achieve purification of the soul and unveils the six powers that lie dormant within every human heart. The path from submersion in the negative traits to the unveiling of these six powers is known as the Migration to Perfected Knowledge on the way to complete realization. In America, where false Sufi masters are increasingly prevalent, it is important that the writings and practices of authentic Shaykhs—with lineages going back to the Prophet Muhammed—are available for both the seeker as well as the professor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Help Guidance on the Path March 1 2009
By Gary Reiner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The full title of this book is "The Sufi Science of Self-Realization: A Guide to the Seventeen Ruinous Traits, the Ten Steps to Discipleship, and the Six Realities of the Heart" (2006). The book lives up to its title in that it guides the reader step-by-step through the 17 negative traits, the 10 positive traits, and the 6 realities. Given the the book is about 230 pages long, that does not leave much printed space for elaboration on all the various steps that are mentioned -- the text is still quite good, but would be even better had the author been able to explain some of the steps in greater detail. Perhaps, the book could have been about twice are long in order to sufficiently cover the vast territory the author brings forth. All that said, the text is written in a very accessible and easily digestible manner. This is a recommended work for anyone seriously interested in Sufism.

Format:Paperback
Don't expect to get from a book what is needed and only available from a living teacher. Find a teacher, then read the book, do not make the book the teacher.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very repetitive with moderate value March 4 2007
By Z A - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read other Sufi related books and I found this one to not be as inspirational. It just felt that there was too much repetition in the book, almost as if the author was copying paragraphs from previous chapters and putting them into later chapters. This book is not for everyone interested in Sufism. Overall I rated this 3 stars out of 5, I was disappointed with it.
