Publisher's Summary

Kutubic is proud to announce the release of the English translation of Haqiqat-i Bay'at "The Reality of Spiritual Allegiance" by Imām Ahmad Ridā Khān, may Allah be pleased with him.

This work is a masterful analysis of the topic of pledging spiritual allegiance [bay‘ah] to a spiritual guide or mentor. Whilst oft misunderstood and misrepresented in our times, the roots of this practice undeniably spring from the Prophetic era. Bringing together in one work countless citations from the Qur’an and sunnah as well as the early and latter day scholars of the Muslim nation, the Indian scholar-sage of the twelfth hijri century, Imam Ahmad Rida presents a robust argument for the preservation of this beneficial practice in modern times whilst at the same time highlighting various damaging trends that have sullied it in recent times.

His gathering of such scholarly erudition, spiritual insight and relevant citations combine to grant the reader a unique glimpse into ‘The Reality of Spiritual Allegiance’.
