Living and Dying with Grace is a book of aphoristic Sufi teachings on how to make one's way in the worldespecially on how to bring spiritual insight to the affairs of daily life. Sufism, the mystical branch of Islam, contains a vast body of knowledge concerning the inner development ... of the complete human being. Among the greatest of Sufi masters, Hadrat 'Al (598-661 CE), cousin and son-in-law of the Prophet Muhammad, is regarded as a paragon of compassion and virtue and a master of both exoteric and esoteric knowledge. He was not only a great warrior, statesman, and scholar, but also a devoted husband and father. Success in this life, 'Al teaches, is bestowed on those who maintain generosity, intelligence, perseverance, integrity, and calm reflection. As for success in the hereafter, 'Al says, 'God, the Glorified, admits to Paradise anyone, at will, for truthfulness of intention and goodness of innermost thoughts.' This book contains four hundred of Hadrat 'Al's teachings, showing how people can use the everyday realities of their lives to cultivate wisdom and well-being, both temporal and eternal, offering a path to living and dying with grace.
