A Concise Description of Jannah (the Garden of Paradise) and Jahannam (the Fire of Hell) is
excerpted from the larger work, Al-Ghunya li-Talibi Tariq al-Haqq (Sufficient Provision for
Seekers of the Path of Truth). Written almost one thousand years ago by Shaikh ʿAbd al-
Qadir al-Jilani, whose eminence is universally acknowledged by Muslims of all persuasions, it is translated by Muhtar Holland, one of the foremost translators of classical Arabic. This work will be most valuable to those who seek spiritual knowledge firmly grounded in knowledge of the Qur'an and the Sunnah.
