In this book, Mullah sadra masterfully analyses the creed of false mystics and those groups of philosophers whom he named as disgraceful impious sophistcs.The work deals with the most crucial issues of metaphysics, encompassing ontology, cosmology, epistemology, psychology and spiritual wayfaring, the attributes of the Pious, and some homiletic advice. It stresses the the importance of virtue and spiritual exercises on the true Sufi path while presenting Mulla Sadra's own metaphysical commentary inspired by the Holy Qur'an.
