ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

First, my heartfelt thanks to the murīds of the `Alāwiyah Tarīqah in Cape Town and abroad, who all continue to be the inspiring source of enlightenment in my life. Their presence in my life, sharing all that is placed in my path, often make the up-hills on life’s journey seem easy. Their wisdom inspires me … their love fills me … their acceptance of me serve as the force that drives me everyday … every moment.

 

These murīds have so selflessly sacrificed their time, resources and expertise to assist with this momentous task of translating the writings of the Shaykh Ahmad ibn Mustaphā al-`Alāwi (may Allāh sanctify his secret) - writings that signify with every word deep and hidden meanings.

 

Then, I thank my wife, children and immediate family who had to endure so much in this process. And who also have to continue enduring me in who and what I am, or in who and what I am not … please forgive me … accept me … and know that my heart is full with the love for you.

 

My deep gratitude goes to my supervisor, Professor Yasien Mohamed, who has guided me so ably and professionally throughout this whole process. I have grown with this and taken much from you … thank you very much.

 

My whole heart goes to Sidi Ahmad Badr al-Din al-`Alāwi ibn Murād (may Allāh sanctify his secret and illumine his tomb) for having been mentor, spiritual guide and Shaykh to me and all of us. It is through his inspiration and concern that we have benefited enormously and continues to benefit through his successor, SidiRāshid al-Mansouri (may Allāh sanctify his secret).

 

Lastly, I feel myself being blessed by the sheer opportunity to receive from the ancient wisdoms and knowledge that the writings of the Shaykh al-`Alāwi (may Allāh sanctify his secret) has presented in this work of al-Risālah al-Qawl al-Ma`rūf. May every breath be breathed, every moment be lived as a never-ending prayer of gratitude in service of Truth, Amin.
