The Nourishment of the Hearts

Text: Imam Zaid Shakir will translate and with commentary Al-W’adh al-Matlub min Qut al-Qulub (Desired Advise for The Nourishment of the Hearts) by Shaykh Jamal ad-Din al-Qasimi.

The text is an abridgment of Abu Talib Makki’s seminal work, Qut al-Qulub. Rooted in the Qur’an and Sunnah, it focuses on alerting the believers to good practices that enliven the heart and disastrous ones kill it. Shaykh al-Qasimi was one of greatest scholars of the Ummah during the later half of the 19th Century. Spending his career in Damascus, Syria, he had the deep learning and courage to challenge dysfunctional aspects of a Muslim tradition in transition, while maintaining a deep respect for those aspects that were indispensable for salvaging that tradition. A scholar of theology, Hadith and an exegete, whose works include a multi-volume abridgment of al-Qurtubi’s Tafsir. Shaykh al-Qasimi has rendered a great service to the Ummah with this volume.
