ABSTRACT

A TRANSLATION, WITH CRITICAL INTRODUCTION, OF SHAYKH AL-`ALAWI’S AL-RISĀLAH AL-QAWL AL-MA`RŪF FĪ AL-RADD `ALĀ MAN ANKARA AL-TASAWWUF.

The main focus of the thesis is the translation of an original defence of Sufī practice titled the al-Risālah al-Qawl al-Ma`rūf fī al-Radd `alā man Ankara al-Tasawwuf (A Kind Word in Response to those who Reject Sufism) by the Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Mustafā al-`Alāwī . This book was written in defence of Sufīs and Sufism. I will endeavour to provide some notes on the life, spiritual heritage and writings of the Shaykh al-`Alāwī in conjunction with a critical introduction to complement the translated text. In addition, I review the Shaykh's methodology applied in his ijtihād to validate and defend the Sufis and their practices. This sheds a new perspective on the Shaykh's life and works. The translation of the al-Risālah and other texts of the Shaykh will provide a clearer picture of this. The translation will additionally have a critical introduction to place the Shaykh and his works in its historical context. Finally, the thesis is a tribute to the great Sufi, independent legal expert Shaykh Aḥmad ibn Mustafā al-`Alāwī .
