Salaam, i am new. Hope everyone is well.

I want to learn about sufism. I know that great classical scholars have written books on sufism, such as imam al ghazli(RA) and imam nawawi(RA).

But before i read there books, i think it would be best if i got a introductory book on sufism, so i can understand it better.

I prefer a real book than ebook, thank you

I would suggest for a beginner to read

Love is the wine by Shaykh Muzzafar Ozak®

When you Hear Hoof Beats think of a Zebra by Shems Freelander

Secret of Secrets By Shaykh Sayyid Abdul Qadir Jilani®

The above 3 books are very easy to read and to understand.

If you want to know about awliya then  read Tadhkirat al-Awliya by Imam Fakhr ud-Din Attar ®

Miftah ul Jannah (26.04.2010)
Although not for a beginner but Fusus ul Hikm by Shaykh al Akbar (RadiAllahu Anhu) is an excellent kitab full of secrets; it is an extremely difficult book to grasp but for those who can hold even a glimmer of its power it is simply mind blowing!

Especially for those who want to know about Wahdat ul Wujood.

PS- I would advise serious caution to those who attempt reading this book without going through suluk and having the backing of a Shaykh-e-Kamil.

One does need a kamil shaykh to help himin understanding Shaykh Al-Akbar ® works

74- The intercession of the Prophets, alayhem assalatu wassalam, is a fact.

75- And the intercession of our Prophet, alayhi [wa alihi] assalatu wassalam, for the sinful believers and those among them who committed grave sins and are [consequently] deserving of punishment, is an established fact.

[al-fiqh al-akbar by Imam e Azam Abu Hanifa (RadiAllah Anh) translated by Shaykh Ninowy]

Yes Imam Abu Hanifah (radiAllahu 'anhu) did, read the poem he wrote: Qasida Numania. In that you will find Imam Abu hanifa doing tawassul through the best of creation, the Holy Propget Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family).
