Audios -- Kitab al-Mawaqif of Niffari

Programme of Talks by Dr. Ali Allawi on Kitab al-Mawaqif (The Book of the Halting Stations) of Niffari (2015-2016)

A series of sessions to explore the Kitab al Mawaqif of Niffari, given at the Meditatio Centre. The Mawaqif of Niffari are among the most mystical and informative of Sufi texts.

Dr. Ali Allawi takes us deep into the heart of Nifarri's inspired utterances about his "Standings" in the Divine Presence, and the profound insights that he receives from these intimate moments of heart-openings. The original Arabic text has been translated by J. Arberry in the early 20th Century and there have been important Sufi commentaries about the Mawaqif by Tilmisani and others, including Ibn `Arabi.
