This book consists of all 14 lessons of the Academy of Self Knowledge's Course ONE – Cosmology of the Self. It has been renamed to The Sufi Map of the Self and published as an eBook.

The book explores the entire cosmology of the self through time and maps the evolution of the self from before birth through life, death and beyond.

The course is contextualized within the age we are living in and is aimed at anybody with a yearning for higher knowledge based on eternal truth. It shows us how to attain greater levels of inner stability in an unstable world so that we can deal with, and even appreciate the outer instability we find ourselves in, rather than constantly resisting it.

The course takes us a step at a time towards the realization that we are outwardly limited but inwardly far more than who we thought we were. It shows us how to prioritize everything that is sacred and enduring in our lives and to discard all that casts us far from the One. The book gives us the means by which we can nurture this higher aspect within ourselves in a wholesome way, making it an invaluable guide to life.



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.
