From the heartland of Islam arise poems of fiery love and peace, composed by a modern-day female poet descended from a long line of Meccan (from Mecca) scholars. Reflecting the pulsing, indivisible bridge of the works of great Sufi mystics and poets to modern times, these spiritual pieces recall the beloved works of Rabi‘ah Al ‘Adawiyyah, Rumi and Hafiz.

From the land of Arabia where Sufism has been long cloaked in mystery, despite its early roots stemming in the very City of the Prophet, this volume serves to transcend time through filling the existing gap between the early beginnings and the little-known Sufi traditions of current-day puritanical Arabia.

These poems also highlight the global and lo­cal Sufi spirit enlivening the younger genera­tion. The shedding of the ego, humility and the quest for spiritual heights are glimpsed in this rare volume of verse.

Drawing on a rich religious legacy and led by the Sufi tradition seeking Unity, the po­ems cover aspects related to spirituality and present-day challenges. The inspiring combi­nation of the traditional and modern in these compositions will touch the inner souls and captivate the hearts of those interested in Higher Love in these turbulent times of tran­sition and frantic search for peace.
