In the Preface, Imam Abdullah Alwi Alhaddad said, “The righteous Sheikh of integrity and intelligent understanding, `AbdurRahman ibn Abdullah `Abbad, has requested me to answer several questions which he committed to writing and presented to me in the town of Shibam after my visit to the great gnostic Sheikh Said bin Isa al-Amudi and to other people of virtue, both living and dead, in those regions.” Shibam is a town to the west of Tarim in the Hadhramaut Valley.

The “Gift for the Seeker” is a collection of the answers to the Sheikh Abbad questions.

Author : Imam Abdullah Alwi Alhaddad
Translator: Maqam Imam Alhaddad
Editor: Abdulkader Ali Esa Alhadad
Contributor: Ali Esa Abdulkader Alhadad and the Charity of Esa Abdulkader Ahmad Alhadad

The original Imam Abdullah Alwi Al-Haddad’s manuscripts in Arabic were recompiled into books by Habib Ali Esa Abdulkader Al-Haddad in the 1970s in two volumes. Subsequently, a team led by Habib Ali re-edited and reprinted them into a Series or Collection [Silsilah] of eleven books. Over the years, various inspired parties translated, published and re-distributed them.

The Author, Imam Abdullah Alwi Al-Haddad, was born in Subair, a small suburb overside and east of Tarim, Hadhramaut, South Yemen, on the night 5 Safar 1044 after Hijrah (30 July 1634). He passed away on Tuesday, 7 Dzulqaedah 1132 Hijrah (9 September 1720) and was buried in a simple grave at the graveyard of Zanbal in Tarim. May Allah show mercy on him and reward him abundantly.

The Custodian or Maqam Imam Alhaddad is based in Hawi Tarim Hadramaut Yemen. The Charity of Esa Abdulkader Ahmad Alhadad supports the Maqam and managed the legacy of Imam Alhaddad by preserving his books and continuing with his teachings.
