The Sufi Saints - Aulia Allah (Friends of Allah) of the Iraq, Iran, India and Pakistan etc. have left for us many books and poetical works which really are the treasure troves of Spiritual Knowledge and are the means of improving one's inner and outer Self, approaching nearer unto the Absolute Creator and for understanding many secrets and mysteries which cannot be found anywhere else. Many of their books and poetical works are still intact in original form and have also been translated in many languages of world including English so that all the people of world, including the Muslims and non Muslims, can benefit from these works and can understand Islam, Spirituality, the Human Being and God from nearer and in a clearer way.
