'Beads of Dew from the Source of Life'

Muhtar Holland's translation of Mawlana Ali ibn Hussain al-Safi's important hagiography of the Khwajagan (the early Naqshbandis), Rashahat 'Ain al-Hayat. This work was exceedingly popular across the Muslim world, and was translated from the original Persian into Arabic and Ottoman Turkish in numerous editions throughout the nineteenth century. Until now it has not been accessible to those people in the West who do not have knowledge of these languages, but thanks to Muhtar Holland's timely translation we finally are able to read about the lives of our forefathers.
