Risalah al-Wilayah is a treatise written by ‘Allamah Seyyid Muhammad Husain Tabatabai (quddisa sirruh) on the subject of Islamic spirituality and ‘Irfan, according to the Ahlul Bayt (a.s.) School of Thought, translated into English by Zaid Alsalami, a student of the Hawzah of Qom.

According to Ahlul Bayt News Agency (ABNA.ir), it is a book that explains the human perfection that is achieved by the saints, or awliya’ of Allah and the lofty stations they reach in the ladder of mental, spiritual and practical wayfaring.

As Ayatullah Jawadi ‘Amuli said in favour of this book, “It is the best of ‘Allamah’s works’.

‘Allamah Tabatabai is the same author of the famous Tafsir, al-Mizan.

The translation won the award of ‘Best English Translation’ in the Sheikh Tusi Competition in Qom, 2009.

If these interesting questions, and many more are issues that you’ve thought about and want to find a strong and authoritive answer to, then you must have a copy of ‘Vicegerency’, or ‘Risalah al-Wilayah’, written by ‘Allamah Seyyid Muhammad Husain Tabatabai, the famous author of the 20 volume Commentary on the holy Quran ‘al-Mizan fi Tafseer al-Qur’an’.

This treatise is a discourse written by the heir of Islamic philosophy in the contemporary world and a master of Islamic mysticism and spiritualism. Risalah al-Wilayah explains the human perfection that is achieved by the saints or vicegerents of Allah and the lofty stations they reach in the ladder of mental, spiritual and practical wayfaring.

In the author’s view, the ultimate goal of all divine scriptures is to direct mankind towards perfection and to reach the level of sainthood and absolute reality, and the particulars of religious legislation aim at creating the spiritual and social climate necessary for this path to perfection.
