Happiness in Life and After Death

Happiness in Life and After Death

An Islamic Sufi View

An inspiring and compelling account of how to live and die well, as viewed through the compassionate heart of Islam and Sufi tradition


CATEGORIZED IN


Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri provides a lucid and inspiring account of life, death and the hereafter, according to an Islamic Sufi perspective. The book opens with a wide-ranging sweep of death and dying as viewed in other cultures and religions --from ancient Mesopotamian, Egyptian and Zoroastrian sources through to Judaism and Christianity. Based on the Qur’an and the Prophetic message, this book offers a splendid collection of revelations and spiritual teachings that map a basic path towards a wholesome way of living without forgetting death. There is both physical and spiritual death, and death in both instances is seen as a natural bridge from the suffering and delusions of this life to a unifying and clear abode. As the reader is led from birth of the ephemeral self on earth through an unfolding progression towards higher consciousness and awakening to the eternal soul within, constant awareness of one’s intimate dual nature takes away much of the fear of death and makes it seem like a familiar companion.
