The Practical Guidebook by Shaykh Ali Laraki al-Husaini

An up-and-coming project on which I have been working is the layout of:

The Practical Guidebook of essential Islamic sciences a commentary on Ibn ‘Ashir’s al-Murshid al-Mu‘in by Shaykh Ali Laraki al-Husaini

Here is a PDF which you can download to get a sense of the book and the Shaykh’s treatment of this fundamentally important text on Ash‘ari ‘aqida, Maliki fiqh and Junaydi tasawwuf.

  1. It looks good, I cannot wait to get my hands on it.

    I noticed a little typing mistake:

    on page 19

    “It will be a good thing if other follow his example and translate
    it into Spanish, French, German, Italian and Hebrew,”

    the text pasted above has the letter s missing for the word other.

  2. Salaam Shaykh Ali

    I would like to have an audio of the ‘Practical Guidebook’ of Murshid al Mu’in. Is this avialable anywhere
