Tasawwuf

Dr. Nazeer Ahmed, Director, American Institute of Islamic History and Culture

Islamic history is not complete without a journey through the gardens of bliss nourished by tasawwuf. We are introducing our distinguished readers to the treasures of spirituality bequeathed to us by the great spiritual masters from the past. In a world of conflict, tasawwuf is a bridge that offers an existential possibility to bring together people of different faiths, nationalities, colors, creeds and origin.
