Fethullah Gülen’s Works


Fethullah Gülen’s vision of civic service has primarily been elaborated in his speeches.  However, more than fifty books have been published compiling his assorted editorials and articles.  These include essays on theology and philosophy as well as writings on education and even a collection of poems (Kırık Mızrap, or The Broken Plectrum).  Gülen did systematically author one text over the span of several years, which was published in the form of centerfold articles in the Turkish magazine Sızıntı.  The first two volumes of this work have been translated into English and published with the titled: Key Concepts in the Practice of Sufism: Emerald Hills of the Heart.
