Number one selilng item for newly released Sufi books in Kindle - March 18, 2018

This book explores the significance of a saying of the Prophet Muhammad -- namely, "Die before you die" -- from the perspective of an individual who has been journeying along a path of discovery for more than 50 years. The contents of this book might be one of the most unique, intriguing, and challenging accounts of Islam and the Sufi path that has been published in North America.
Just a little over a year ago, the author of this book died -- several times -- in the emergency room of a local hospital. This book starts with an account of how he survived those events and, then, expands outward to talk about an array of experiences (including spiritual abuse) that has shaped his understanding of Islam, the Sufi path, life, and himself.
In addition, the book critically reflects on a series of issues that have relevance in today's world. These ideas range from: Sam Harris, to topics such as: Education, religion, mysticism, science, and shari'ah.
While each of the book’s four sections has something to offer readers with respect to assisting a person to work toward developing a deeper understanding of Islam and its mystical dimension (as well as a number of other topics), the book's section on shari'ah might prove to be the most illuminating and thought-provoking facet of the book. More specifically, Dr. Whitehouse introduces readers to a way of engaging the topic of shari’ah that is quite different from what is normally thought of in conjunction with that term and, if God wishes, could serve as a way of helping to bring Muslims and non-Muslims closer together in a variety of constructive and harmonious ways.

Dr. Whitehouse received an honors degree in Social Relations from Harvard University. In addition, he earned a doctorate in Educational Theory from the University of Toronto. 
For nearly a decade, Dr. Whitehouse taught at several colleges and universities in both the United States and Canada. The courses he offered focused on various facets of psychology, philosophy, criminal justice, and diversity.
He had the great, good fortune to work closely with his shaykh over a period of 16 years on a number of projects. Among other things, Dr. Whitehouse's spiritual guide asked him to lead the weekly, informal discussion group for the Sufi Study Circle ... a responsibility that Dr. Whitehouse observed for nearly two decades.

Dr. Whitehouse has written more than 37 books. Some of the topics covered in those works include: Evolution, quantum physics, cosmology, psychology, neurobiology, philosophy, political science, history, education, and constitutional law.
