Acknowledged as a master of self-knowledge and a spiritual philosopher, Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri’s role as a teacher grew naturally out of his own quest for self-fulfilment.His informed awareness of the realpolitik of the world around him compelled him to seek a truth that would reconcile the past with the present, the East with the West, the worldly with the spiritual. A link between the ancient wisdom teachings and our present time, and a descendant of five generations of well-known and revered spiritual leaders, Shaykh Haeri has taught students throughout the world for over 30 years.
SFH is a gifted exponent of how the self relates to the soul, mankind’s link with the Divine, and how consciousness can be groomed to reflect our higher nature. The unifying scope of his perspective emphasizes practical, actionable knowledge that leads to self-transformation, and provides a natural bridge between seemingly different Eastern and Western approaches to spirituality, as well as offering a common ground of higher knowledge for various religions, sects and secular outlooks. He is a prolific author of more than thirty books relating to the universal principles of Islam, the Qur’an, and its core purpose of enlightenment. Some of his works include titles such as Thoughtful Guide to Islam, Witnessing Perfection and 101 Helpful Illusions.
