Responding to questions asked by spiritual seekers in Europe and the United States, Sufi teacher Hazrat Azad Rasool provides concise, timely, and thought-provoking insights into the path of Islamic mysticism. Topics range from the role of spirituality in Islam to the significance of the Sufi guide, from qualities of an enlighted human being to the importance of service in the mystic search. The author combines the warmth and wit of a seasoned teacher with the wisdom gained through his own study and practice of Sufism. While addressing concerns of those who seek the truth today through up-to-date, relevant language and examples, Hazrat Rasool grounds his responses in the classical teachings of Sufi lineages that stretch back more than 1,400 years to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
