About the Book

For many people, to connect with their inner self and the divine source is an irresistible desire for their restless souls. Sufi Light will take you on a spiritual journey in the ocean of oneness into the presence of the divine.

Well acquainted with the world of differences, the author presents a manual for Sufi meditation that is laced with autobiographical accounts of his spiritual experiences. This volume offers not only a portrait of the development of a Sufi mind, but how that mind found refuge from the world of differences by meditation on the word of Allah.

These pages instruct how to take awareness to its source and how to better understand the Sufis among us.
