A SPIRITUAL book about Islam has been presented to the Mayor of Kirklees.
Dr Muhammad Iqbal, a former chemistry lecturer at the University of Huddersfield, gave a copy of the book to Clr Karam Hussain.
The story sets out the religious philosophy of Hadrat Abu Anees Muhammad Barkat Ali, who Dr Iqbal met in Pakistan in 1962.
Hadrat Abu Anees became a renowned sheikh or religious teacher in the Islamic Sufi tradition.
Dr Iqbal said: “The book is especially useful for those who have some understanding of Islam but is equally useful for those wanting to learn more about the religion.”
The book’s foreword is written by Professor Mark Halstead at the School of Education.
‘To my Shaikh with Love’ is published by Dar-ul-Ehsan Publications, Huddersfield.
