Kitab al-Hikam (Book of Aphorisms) by Ibn Ata Allah al-Iskandari (d709H)
This text is a masterpiece of Islamic spiritual literature by the renowned Sufi scholar Ahmed Ibn Ata Allah Al-Iskandari, third master of the tariqa Shadhiliyya. In form it is a collection of aphoristic statements in beautiful Arabic. However it is an ocean of meanings whose outer simplicity often veils one from the depth and profundity of its teachings. [Al-Hikam] are considered among the jewels of Arabic prose. They are short phrases with few words which include a lot of meaning. Most of the [Hikam] are in the form of a speech addressing the [mureed] on the Sufi path, alerting to the rules of conduct to be observed.
