Exploring the Spiritual Vocabulary of Islam
By Kabir Helminski
The spiritual vocabulary of the Islamic tradition offers profound and enlightening concepts that do not easily lend themselves to English translation. Serving as both a translation guide and a glossary, this book clarifies 150 key spiritual, philosophical, and metaphysical Quranic terms in English, from ahl, Allah, and amanah to will, worship, and witnessing. Essays are included on topics such as existence, spiritual cognition, and levels of knowing. Included is an important essay on Islamic epitemology by Prince Ghazi Bin Muhammad: Truth and Knowledge.
