This groundbreaking and seminal work is the first to travel into the very center of that uncharted meeting-place of science and spirituality. It presents for the Western reader a concept of the self from the Islamic view, the same concept as revealed in the teachings of several world religions, in particular the Judeo-Christian traditions.

It provides a genuine spiritual psychology rooted in a profound understanding of the mystery of the human self.

"It takes a rare author to write a book like this. Shaykh Fadhlalla is a man who is completely at home in the East and the West. He is a scholar and an effective and practical Sufi teacher, an international businessman and also an international philanthropist."

– From the Foreword by Robert Frager



Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri was born in Karbala, Iraq, a descendant of several generations of well-known and revered spiritual leaders. Educated in Europe and America, he founded a number of companies in the Middle East and worked as a consultant in the oil industry.

He travelled extensively on a spiritual quest which led to his eventual rediscovery of the pure and original Islamic heritage of his birth.

In 1980 he established the Zahra Trust, a charitable organization with centers in the USA, Britain and the Middle East, which makes traditional Islamic teachings more widely available through courses and publications, promotes the revival of traditional systems of healing and supports a variety of charitable programs.

Shaykh Fadhlalla is currently engaged in lecturing and writing books and commentaries on the Holy Qur’an and related subjects, with particular emphasis on ethics, self-development and gnosis (`irfan).

In 2004, he established the Academy of Self Knowledge,, which offers teachings on self knowledge and the Prophetic revealed path.
