The Laws of the Heart: An Introduction to the spiritual path in Islam : Shaykh Muhammad Emin Er (RA)


"This is an excellent book about the spiritual life of a Muslim in accordance with the Shariah and the Sunnah. Its author was a saintly scholar of Islam who passionately dedicated his long life to practice the Sunnah externally and internally and to transmit it to his students the way he learned from his mentors". Dr.Recep Senturk 

"The most wonderful experience I had in the presence of Shaykh Muhammad Emin was observing his character. He was beautiful in the way he spoke, ate, smiled ,and walked. Everything he did was done with beauty. Allah imbued him with elegant majesty and elegant beauty. I have never encountered anyone as spiritually and morally elegant as him. He was a living friend of God." Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui 

 "This brilliant text is a translation of a terse yet concise manual that maps the journey along the spiritual path written by the last Ottoman scholar, Shaykh Muhammad Emin Er. In keeping with the true scholarly tradition in Islam, the text demonstrates that the spiritual path entails rigorous observance of the Sunnah and pious adherence to the instructions of the Sharia. It is not merely a book to read, but more accurately a book that guides practice". Imam Khalil Abdur-Rashid. 

Al-Madina Institute: Biography of Shaykh Muhammad Emin Er (RA) & Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui PDF  "Concurrent with his studies in the Islamic sciences, Shaykh Muḥammad Emin devotedly pursued the study and practice of taṣawwuf, tazkiyat al-nafs, or iḥsān – the normative discipline of spiritual purification, which is the essence of Islam. He had a number of spiritual teachers, all from the Naqshbandī order. Following the death of Shaykh Aḥmad Ghaznawī, whom he met while he was in Syria, he became a student of Shaykh Muḥammad Sa‘īd Saydā al-Jazarī and remained under his tutelage until he was granted an ijāzah to guide students of his own"                                                              " In the sacred sanctuary of Makkah during Ḥajj in 2006, Shaykh Muḥammad Emin granted Shaykh Mokhtār Maghraoui an ijāzah (a traditional diploma and authorization to teach) in taṣawwuf and licenced him with spiritual authority to guide seekers to Allāh. In 2010, Shaykh Muḥammad Emin conferred upon him an ijāzah of sacred knowledge".  

Sophiscated Purity Blog: Shaykh Muhammad Emin Er - The Last Ottoman Scholar - Imam Khalil Abdrur-Rashid ( Adjunct Professor, Harvard Divinity School & Muslim Chaplain) " It is with deep humility and honor that I sit to transmit a snapshot of the life of my teacher whom I spent 8 years of my life studying under; who would refine me, educate me, advise me, and transmit ijaaza to me thus becoming the father of my spiritual life, Shaykh Muhammad Emin Er".
