Assalamu’alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, Shaykh Hisham Kabbani
Audhu Billah mina shaitani rajeem
Bismillahi ‘Rahmani ‘Rahim
I would like to know if there is permission to read books of Ibn ‘Arabi (Fusus al-Hikam, Tafsir, Al-Ashwaq) and al-Ghazali, and also from authors such Mr. Gurdjieff.
I would also like to know if one can benefit from them.
Thank you, Mawlana.
