SUNDAYS 7 PM AEST

The aphorisms of ibn 'Ata-illah are a collection of 264 statements penned by Tāj al-Dīn Abū'l-Faḍl Aḥmad ibn Muḥammad ibn ʿAbd al-Karīm ibn ʿAṭā Allāh al-Iskandarī al-Shādhilī (658-709 AH/1259-1310 CE). al-Ḥikam al-ʿAtā‘iyya, as they are popularly known, are aphorisms stated in the way of masters of the path of spiritual purification. When ibn 'Ata-illah presented them to his teacher, Abu al-'Abbās al-Mursi, he remarked to him, "My son, you have put in this booklet the purposes of creation, and then some." For this reason, al-Ḥikam have been taken by numerous figures among the masters of spiritual taste and commented on, most extensively by Sidi Aḥmad Zarrūq whose text will be studied in over the weekly sessions.
