Witnessing Perfection

Witnessing Perfection


Sufism is the path of enlightenment, which enables one to relate to the world outside whilst maintaining constant equanimity and peace within. Witnessing Perfection is an accessible and applicable manual that covers key issues of life such as the interplay of self and soul, and other complementary dualities in creation. Numerous relationships, evolvement of consciousness and the unity behind all diversities are explained. Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri is a writer-philosopher from the Islamic city of Karbala, who combines knowledge and experience of the spiritual teachings of the East with a keen understanding of the West.


"This book could just as well have been titled “Witnessing God”, for God alone is perfect. Add to that Plotinus’s assertion that “he who witnesses beauty becomes beautiful,” and we are deep into this book’s character. As I read it, it dawned on me early on that I was in effect reading an icon, for I was not so much looking at its pages as seeing, God through them." ~ Huston Smith, Author of World Religions and numerous books, Professor Emeritus of Religion, Syracuse University, NY

“Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri's Witnessing Perfection is an exceptional, mature, and authentic book which will surely make a major impact on contemporary spirituality. It's importance is that it successfully translates the wisdom of Sufism into a universal language accessible to the contemporary world. There are few people alive who could have accomplished this task.” ~ Kabir Helminski, Translator of Rumi, Author of Living Presence and The Knowing Heart

Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri here meditates on today's dilemnas with aphoristic reflections that draw deeply on Sufism and a broad range of religious traditions; yet the work is fresh, vital and passionate, relating to contemporary concepts of science, society and psychology in a way that is intuitively clear to the reader. A remarkably attractive expression of the spiritual quest. ~ Prof. Carl W. Ernst, William R. Kenan, Jr. Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

“Witnessing Perfection", in my belief, is the most perfect book about enlightenment, and what our society needs today. Whoever reads this book, I’m sure, will arrive on the shore of the ocean of knowledge. For ages, people have been thirsting for this knowledge. It is a book for every age. ~ Seyyed Mehdi Khorasani, President, Islamic Society of California

Those interested sincerely in the spiritual life will find many pearls of wisdom in this treatise and we must all be grateful to Shaykh Haeri for having made such a book available to the general public. ~ Seyyed Hossein Nasr
