“When ALIM core faculty member and co-founder, Dr. Sherman Jackson, published an annotated translation of Ibn Ata’llah As-Sakandarī’s, Tāj al-Arūs (The Bridegroom’s Crown) he entitled his work, “Sufism for non-Sufis?” The subtle inclusion of a question mark within the title tells the story of the translation. Ibn Ata’llah, a classical Islamic scholar whose investments in Sufism are well known, had written a book that appeared to intentionally avoid the polarizing and controversial aspects of Sufism and instead focused on its essence: character refinement, inward purity, enhanced presence with God, and increased love for God’s Messenger (upon him be peace). In that unifying spirit and similar intent to focus on the essential and avoid the controversial, the American Learning Institute for Muslims (ALIM) and Miftaah invite our community to explore selected readings of this short but extremely profound work of tazkīya (purification). We will be using the Arabic original and Dr. Jackson’s translation." Register at miftaah.org/heart
