The Scholars of the Sufis

They are the Genuine Followers of the Salaf. Shaykh `Abd al-Hadi Kharsa. Biography & Introduction by Shaykh Gibril Fouad Haddad. Translated by Suraqa Abdul Aziz.

Written by the erudite scholar, Sufi educator, ascetic, and author of many books, Sayyidi al-Shaykh `Abd al-Hadi b. al-Hajj Muhammad b. Salih al-Kharsa al-Dimashqi al-Salihi al-Shadhili al-Hanafi

The vehemence of the title-shown in the emphatic-exclusive personal pronoun and translatable as 'The Scholars of the Sufis: [Only] They are the Genuine Followers of the Salaf!'-is a reminder of the tireless efforts of the last two hundred years of Ahl al-Sunna wal-Jama`a scholarship demonstrating the Islamic orthodoxy of tasawwuf and denouncing the heresy of Wahhabism and pseudo-Salafism.

It is its unique gems that make `Ulama' al-Sufiyya stand out such as, for example, the title's emphasis on knowledge: it is never about the Sufis at large but about their Gnostics; as for would-be-Sufi [mutasawwif] claimants who are nescient of the Shari`a or not even concerned&
