Shaykh Mar’i ibn Yusuf | Authentic Statements
In this fascinating book Wanderings of Spirits and Souls, Shaykh Mar’i ibn Yusuf explores the mysteries of the spirit and soul from the Qur’an, Sunnah, and statements of the Salaf.
From the shaykh’s many enlightening statements on this extraordinary subject are: “The minds stirred in those who have intellects, but they were not able to perceive the soul. The people spoke of its reality, but they could not prove what they said. They sought means to understand it, but they did not know the way.”
“I only singled out this subject because speech concerning the soul is a very noble topic. And how could this not be the case when it has been narrated, ‘Whoever knows himself, knows his Lord.’”
