Ibn & of Ronda (1332-1390) wrote to his friends in Fez from the small Moroccan town of Sale. Here are selections of his letters, dating from 1365 to 1375, blending the lay movement of his time and the Sufi traditions of his past into a fresh spirituality. Sufism has many faces. Many modern Westerners connect it with, if anything, "Sufi Dance" as it is taught in American cities

Ibn ʿAbbād of Ronda book. In the preface to this volume, Professor Annemarie B. Schimmel describes Ibn Abbad's appeal for today: " He has not been surrounded by miracle stories and legends, as have so many other Sufis…We rather find Ibn Abbad a quiet friend in whom we can trust, a man who does not dazzle us with flashes of glorious ideas or confuse us with theosophical. highfalutin…but another waits until we come and listen to him and thus slowly understand his deep responsibility for the spiritual well-being of his readers.

  • Ibn 'Abbad is known for his highly useful commentary of the Hikam of ibn 'Ata'illah. In these letters, he helps the beginner through early obstacles on the path to spiritual excellence (ihsan) and intimate knowledge of God (ma'rifah). Renard's translation is an superb read because it isn't cumbersome like so many others.

  • Purchased this to add to my Classics of Western Spirituality collection. When I get around to reading it, probably years from now, I'll probably review it then.

  • This is a realy beautiful book. Small passages of wisdom and advice that are so profound that they transcend the boundries of one religion and can be read by followers of all.

    ibn Abbad was a great amongst Sufis. Not only did he write this collection his 'Risail' or letters but also was the author of a commentary upon the Hikam of ibn Atiullah.

    Recomended for anyone seeking solace on their religious path.

  • a beautiful collection of letters dealing with one's relationship with God, in a variety of circumstances. Certain parts could even be called sublime (according to Longinus's definition), particularly in the last letter. It is fortunate that books such as this are available in English, representing as they do the spiritual riches of mankind. Ibn Abbad's voice is calm, sober and collected- and his advice and exposition of man's interaction with the divine transports one to a different level of experience.

  • I love this book. I bought a used copy and then worried about it falling apart and i bought the hard cover because I know I will always want to be able to read this book. I agree with what other reviewers have said. You feel you are with someone of integrity who cares in a profound way for the spiritual growth of those he writes to. Where can one find such a teacher? But somehow, reading this book you feel you know him, he becomes your teacher.
