This collection of wisdoms from the works of Ibn Taymiyyah reflects the range of his penetrative insight and wisdom. It aims to recast his work, which is often mistakenly associated with Islamic fundamentalism, for a new generation of Muslims who are seeking a path through the challenges of the modern age.
With an emphasis upon literary concision each aphorism is pregnant with meaning, which is carefully explored in a commentary.
