Physicians of the Heart: A Sufi View of the Ninety-Nine Names of Allah
Wali Ali Meyer, Bilal Hyde, Faisal Muqaddam, and Shabda Kahn
This book takes the reader into the heart of the mystery of the 99 sacred Names of Allah. It is a vehicle for understanding the infinite nature of God, and for discovering the divine potential in every soul. It is also a comprehensive guidebook for progressing through the stages of the spiritual path and an instruction manual for teachers on how to work with students more wisely, as physicians of the heart.
In the process of this voyage to discovery, the reader is systematically exposed to the universal mysticism encoded in the Qur’an and in the classical Sufi traditions, as well as to a modern psychological approach that works with the 99 Names to achieve individuation and wholeness.
This astounding book is a nothing less than a mystical road map into the reality of the Only Being, to the One from whence all the 99 beautiful names of Allah spring, and to which they all point. The collaboration of these scholars and practitioners has yielded a truly profound work of deep spiritual value and psychological insight which should continue to serve the entire community of the "Jerusalem Trilogy" (Jews, Christians, and Muslims) for generations to come. -Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, founder of the Jewish Renewal Movement

They are words of power, sovereign remedies for the ailing human heart. -Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, PhD, president of the Sufi Order International and founder of the Suluk Academy and Seven Pillars House of Wisdom
