Formerly 'The Poor Man's Book of Assistance'

At the 2000 Summer Rihla in Southern Spain, Hamza Yusuf introduced and taught the text Kitab al I'ana by the 9th century Moroccan scholar and saint, Sidi Ahmed Zarruq, to an eager group of students at the Al-Azzagra Madrassa. The insightful commentary given by Hamza Yusuf is bound to touch the listener's heart and instill a desire for spiritual growth and purification.

Sandala presents this freshly designed re-release of the popular CD set with the audio of Shaykh Hamza’s class digitally remastered.

One student explained that Sidi Ahmed Zarruq "advises you step-by-step on how to purify the sick heart just as a doctor would advise her ill patient.  Shaykh Hamza's dynamic teaching style really brings this book to life, extrapolating practical applications for the student of the here and now".

In today's world of confusion and bewilderment, we pray that this amazing and inspiring work will serves as a guide towards your own path to clarity and salvation - the Path to God.

About the Speaker -

Hamza Yusuf began to study religious traditions at a young age, eventually leading to his discovery of Islam, the religion he would embrace in 1977. Thereafter he traveled extensively throughout the Middle East and North Africa, where he became fluent in the Arabic language and then began his studies of the traditional Islamic sciences under the tutelage of some of the greatest Muslim scholars of our age. Ten years later, he returned to the United States and completed his Western education, obtaining a Bachelor degree in Religious Studies at San Jose State University in California.

Today, Hamza Yusuf is recognized across the United States, Canada, and Europe, as one of the most prominent Muslim scholars in the West. In 1996, he founded the Zaytuna Institute, a non-proft, non-partisan organization dedicated to the revival of traditional Islamic sciences. He serves as the director of the Institute and has translated several texts from Arabic for the Institute's curriculum, including books on creed, jurisprudence, ethics, grammar, and logic.

Hamza Yusuf resides in the Greater Bay Area of San Francisco with his wife and four children.
