The Book of Certainty – Seminar #2

最新情報

In this series, Dr Reza Shah-Kazemi will discuss The Book of Certainty by Dr Martin Lings, also known as Shaykh Abū Bakr Sirāj ad-Dīn. The talks will be in the form of seminars where Reza will start by reading a few pages from the book, then elucidate some of the meanings. The audience will then be invited to participate and engage in a Q&A session.

An interesting question was raised by one of the audience about attaining a degree of certainty. He goes on by asking about how do we take into account the idea of self-deception, especially now with the new age and pseudo spirituality movements. How do we know from ourselves whether we actually attain something or whether it is merely a self-deception.

The Book of Certainty: The Sufi Doctrine of Faith, Vision and Gnosis was first published in 1992 by the Islamic Texts Society. The book expresses the language of Sufism, that is, Islamic mysticism, some of the universal truths which ‘lie at the heart of all religions’.

Dr Lings was asked by friends in Egypt in the early 1950s to write a book before he leaves. He wrote this book attempting to distil the quintessence of Sufi Qur’anic exegeses, wove into that a universal prospective. His aim of writings was to make accessible some of the great germs of Universal Spirituality expressed through commentaries of Qur’anic verses.

We would like to thank the Institut Kajian Dasar (IKD), Institute for Policy Research in Kuala Lumpur for their help in organising this webinar.
