Synopsis

This book takes the reader into the heart of the mystery of the 99 sacred Names of Allah. It is a vehicle for understanding the infinite nature of God, and for discovering the divine potential in every soul. It is also a comprehensive guidebook for progressing through the stages of the spiritual path and an instruction manual for teachers on how to work with students more wisely, as physicians of the heart. In the process of this voyage to discovery, the reader is systematically exposed to the universal mysticism encoded in the Qur’an and in the classical Sufi traditions, as well as to a modern psychological approach that works with the 99 Names to achieve individuation and wholeness. This astounding book is a nothing less than a mystical road map into the reality of the Only Being, to the One from whence all the 99 beautiful names of Allah spring, and to which they all point. The collaboration of these scholars and practitioners has yielded a truly profound work of deep spiritual value and psychological insight which should continue to serve the entire community of the "Jerusalem Trilogy" (Jews, Christians, and Muslims) for generations to come. -Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, founder of the Jewish Renewal Movement What’s in a name? This book has the answer. Shining light on the semantic, psychological, and spiritual dimensions of the Quranic Names of God, the authors show how the Names are much more than theological abstractions. They are words of power, sovereign remedies for the ailing human heart. -Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, PhD, president of the Sufi Order International and founder of the Suluk Academy and Seven Pillars House of Wisdom The Source of Love promises humanity, “Call on me in longing and love through intoning My Most Beautiful Names and I will answer your call, far beyond your imagination.” O seeker, enter the mystical kingdom of the Divine Energies, called the Most Beautiful Names of Allah, by plunging into this remarkable sourcebook, which elucidates the ancient practice of contemplation and chanting of the Names of God, the swiftest path to union. The authors of the book have brought a great gift to the West in their extraordinary and monumental work which elucidates a new field of wisdom in the West. Use this book as a guide on your journey. -Fariha al Jerrahi, -Nur Ashki Jerrahi Sufi Lineage

This is a wonderful book
February 23rd, 2015
As someone put it, the authors did to 99 Divine Qualities what Coleman Barks did to Rumi. For those who have read or listened to Coleman Barks read Rumi's poetry you might know that his translations were a product of deep inspiration and much contemplation. I think that is how all things need to be translated in order that the jewels of wisdom and beauty could be revealed to the reader. In my personal quest to learn the 99 Qualities of Allah this book has been a treasure which I keep coming back to again and again. It revealed many important secrets about the Names which I previously thought hadn't existed. If you are a seeker like myself or just want to add something of value to your library then this is the kind of book that will do.
