The work initially explains the atonement, its kinds, categories, and principals. Then, it goes further to the discussion of some issues in Sufism, like martabat tujuh, talqin and bay'at among the followers of sufi orders. It also contains the rituals the followers need to do, like praying followed with dhikr or wirid and doa. This text is then closed with the attachment of guru-murid genealogy in both Qadiriyah and Shattariyah sufi order.
