059A – Works, States and Our Creator (Part I)

The Hikam

In this episode (first of three parts on this aphorism), Shaykh Zahir Bacchus covers the 59th aphorism of the Hikam: “He has prevented both travellers to Him and those who have reached Him from looking at their works, or beholding their spiritual states: Those travelling, because they have not realized true sincerity to Allah in the, and those who have arrived, because He has made them oblivious to them through beholding Him”.

This podcast covers “The Hikam”,  considered a classical masterpiece in spiritual literature – written by the great spiritual master of 13th/14th century Ibn Ata’illah. The Hikam is  a book of spiritual aphorisms containing timeless and pure spiritual wisdom.
