Fortunately there is, in the story of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) in the Qur'an. The life of Ibrahim (AS) is filled with spiritual awakenings which he experiences in his childhood, youth, maturity and old age. Apart from being a Messenger of God, he attained the high station (maqaam) of being the Khalilullah or the intimate friend of Allah. The Qur'an tells us that he is a prime example of one who perfected the outer (dhahir - physical) as well as the inner (bathin - spiritual) dimensions of life in perfect 'uboodhiyyah (slavery) to Allah. As such our Prophet Muhammad and the rest of the Muslims are commanded by Allah in the Qur'an to follow the philosophy (millah) and example of Ibrahim (Qur'an 3:95, 60:4).
So what are the secrets of Ibrahim (AS) in achieving these levels of spirituality at different stages of his life? How did he achieve the highest state of Ihsan (spiritual excellence)? What was his philosophy? What was his practice? In other words what is "Ibrahim's way of Tasawwuf"?

"Of all the scholars I have had the opportunity to study with, I have found Shaikh Akram Nadwi to be the closest, in knowledge, manners and teaching, to how I would imagine some of the great Hadith scholars of the past would have been. He has a vast knowledge of Qur'an, Hadith and Fiqh, a down-to-earth, humble, approachable style, and great teaching ability. His classes are not just beneficial from a learning perspective, but also to marvel at the awe-inspiring wealth of knowledge of our scholars masha Allah. His 40 volume work going through the biographies of some 8,000 women scholars of Hadith is a monumental endeavour. The mere fact of its existence can be a major talking point in discussion with Muslims and non-Muslims, and is almost a stand-alone proof of Islam's unparalleled wealth of female scholarship." - Dr Omar Mahroo, Cambridge
