Ustadh Amjad Tarsin is the translator of the newly published book, "Sufism: Its Essence & the Traits of its People," by Habib Umar bin Hafiz. In this one-day seminar, he explains the text and each of the ten characteristics of the people of spirituality (tasawwuf).  

In this first session, he provides an introduction by defining sufism and other related terms, and expounds on the first characteristic. The ten characteristics of the people are tasawwuf, are characteristics taken from the Prophet, peace be upon him. Recorded at Masjid Muhammad of Atlantic City, July 14, 2018.

About The Book

Sufism (Taṣawwuf), the path of spiritual purification, is the essence of Islam. Ironically, misunderstandings regarding it remain prevalent. This book's author, Al-Ḥabīb 'Umar bin Ḥafīẓ, is a living master of both the inward and outward sciences of Islam. With clarity and authority, he succinctly provides a definitive understanding of Sufism and the ten most important traits of its true people. Any claims that contradict these qualities have no authentic connection to Sufism.

May Allah magnify its benefit for the author, reader, scribe, listener, and the entire Ummah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
