The Bani ‘Alawi: Background, Key Figures and the Spiritual Path

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

اللهم صل وسلم على رسولك وآله أجمعين

as-salamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatu Llah, dear visitors!

We are blessed to have been given access to a recording of a course conducted by al-Habib Kazim as-Saqqaf, in which the essential principles of the Ba ‘Alawi tariqah were outlined and explained, in addition to brief biographies of its key figures. We ask Allah to make this of benefit for those seeking an introduction to the tariqah in English.
