    Not sure. It’s a translation of Ibn Ata’ Allah’s Taj al-Arus. So, yes, I guess it will contain the aphorisms.

    Are most the Islamic books available in English (for us English speaking and reading people (though iA trying to learn Arabic))? If so, would you mind listing the ones that are? JAK

    There are many books on Islam available in the English language. Do you have a subject? As for Arabic, I would recommend taking a class.
