(2006) The Secret of the Love of God

(2008) The Reality of Imagination

This book provides a rare glimpse into the world of imagination, within the world of images, revealing the names of the Reality. Imagination provides both the dense and subtle qualities of the human being with the only path to true knowledge of self and God because imagination brings intelligible meanings down into sensory forms.

(2008) Natural Healing: Prevention is the Best Medicine

This is the fifth book in the healing series presented by Shaykh Muhammad Sa’id al-Jamal al-Rifa`i who says, “Thousands of years ago people had knowledge of healing herbs and used them to treat many diseases, and Muslim physicians have been recommending herbs since ancient times. However, industrial development has led to the use of modern drugs, which has reduced the use of healing herbs as remedies.” This book is an introduction to some of these herbs, especially those which grow in the Middle East, shedding light on some of their medicinal benefits.

(2009) The Reality of Gnosis

This book offers readers a rare appreciation of some of Sufism’s deepest understandings about both knowledge of the Real, and those to whom it is granted either through tasting or revelation.

The second part explores the consequences of the blameworthy qualities on the heart and illuminates those qualities that lead to salvation.

They also include Noble Prophetic Conversations (ahadith nabawiyyah) which are the sayings of the Messenger of Allah which were revealed to his heart by way of divine inspiration.

(2011) Song of the Flute of the Deep Knowing

The Guide, Sidi Shaykh Muhammad, was the father who carried the deep secret of the heart of all his students. If anyone in this world can catch a glimpse of this secret, his material world will be destroyed and he would open to receive the message planted in his own heart. When Allah sent His Guide to be in this country to connect with all his students everywhere, He sent the ocean that contained everything the people needed. Through his letters which I have collected since 1977 is the story of how the father shows all his beloved children the way, and how he opens the doors for them to the straight path to Allah, if they live in the garden of the light and follow what he says.

(2011) Qudsi Lessons

(2014) Wisdom for the Devoted

The message in this book is about what it means to be a sincere follower of the truth. As one who follows commented, “Implied here is the recognition of the chain of guidance that continues through our Shaykh and devoted teachers. This, in fact, is our training ground for surrender.”

(2014) The Guide

The life of the Guide of the peace, love, mercy, justice, and freedom unfolds in the pages of this book. He takes nothing for himself and his generous spirit gives his message to all who seek the truth and knowledge of themselves to heal from the falsehood of worldly life. He holds fast to the principles of religion and puts into practice the giving to the poor which expresses itself in all aspects of his life. Allah filled his heart with light and invested his life in the giving of the truth without separation. This is the way of the Prophets whose line he inherited and he is among the best of Guides who illuminate the path to Allah.

(2016) Al-Wadhifatu-S-Salaatu-l-Mashishiyyah

This is among one of the first teachings given to us by our Guide. It connects us, from our first meeting with him, to his spirit and to being carried on the Path of the Unity for the rest of our lives. This is the way of the Unity with our Guide, our masters, and our beloved Prophet Muhammad (salla allaahu ‘alayhi wa-salaam). Without this connection there is no walking for the student. He goes through his brothers and sisters and through his Guide to meet him face to face in the world of the Unity to be He without separation. Death is true only by virtue of our separation from the Path that carries us to the Secret of his Presence.

(1978) AUDIO: Al-Wird CD recording

This recording, titled “Al-Wird Ash-Shadhdhuliyyah”, is from our Master Shaykh Muhammad Sa’id al-Jamal ar-Rifa’i. It was recorded on a very cheap cassette player in his zawiyyah in 1978. To bring it to present students it has been meticulously cleaned, perserved, made digital and copied to a CD format. He begins by leading Salat al-isha, then al-wird, which comprises reciting astafir allah 100 times, allahuma salli ala sayyidina muhammadan wa alihi wa salim 100 times, la illaha il’allah 100 times, and as-salat al-mashishiyyah. This is followed by a short dhikr allah.

(1979) AUDIO: Dhikr ash-Shadhdhuliyyah

This is a very old recording which was done in the zawiyyah in Jerusalem in 1979 on the holy night of Lailat al-qadr. Presented here is a small portion of that night’ remembrance.

(1980) AUDIO: As-Salat Al-Mashishiyyah

This is a CD recording, preserved from the year 1980, of our master Shaykh Muhammad al-Jamal reciting the Prayer of Ibn Mashish. The Moroccan Sufi, Abd as-salam ibn Mashish, the master of Abu al-Hasan ash=-Shadhili, the founder of the Shadhdhuliyyah Order was the spiritual pole of the age. He died in the year 1228 on Mount al-Alam in the Rif Mountains. His tomb on the summit of this mountain is one of the most venerated places of pilgrimage in the whole of the Maghrib. Only one text by him remains, the famous prayer on the Prophet, may the Prayers and peace of Allah be upon him, which is recited in all the communities of the Shadhdhuliyyah and contains the doctrine of al-insan al-kamil. Our Guide Sidi Shaykh Muhammad sayus that this is the prayer for the opening of the soul to drink directly from the secrets of al-jabarut.
