The Practice of Intent (Free)

The Practice of Intent is a short treatise by Shaykh Ebrahim Schuitema where he sums up something remarkable in a very precise form. He provides a pathway to the essence of what and how of the Deen (the Path, the Journey and every encompassing the both) as a technology of transformation.

Here Shaykh Ebrahim mentions how the journey is about the cultivation and polishing of intent, which is the very foundation of every action as well as existence (Remember the saying of our Master, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, “All actions are by their intentions” and “God says, I was a Hidden Treasure intending to be known, hence I manifested the creation”). The author in the role of a Sufi Teacher provides a very contemporary counsel while keeping the focus on some of the most basic aspects of the Deen. This is also the Shaykh’s advice to his students and in parallel, his introduction to Sufism.
