NEW REVISED EDITION of Master of the Jinn!

March 18, 2012

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Alhamdulillah! Praise God! 

Thanks to the wonders of modern printing technology, I have been able to publish a NEW REVISED EDITION of Master of the Jinn!  It is an author’s dream to be able to correct the typos one inevitably finds after a book has been printed. Well, I have done just that, and also changed a few words to make certain sentences more clear. And, after numerous requests, a Glossary of Terms has been added.  Now readers unfamiliar with Sufi terminology or the Arabic and Persian words used will have an easy point of reference.

Master of the Jinn is now a brand new book, so if you haven’t read it yet, this is the perfect time to purchase one, and if you already own the old one, it is now a collector’s item :) And you might also want this new edition. Click HERE to buy the book. :)

Ya Haqq!

Note:  Only the paperback has been revised so far. The Ebook will be revised in about two weeks.

Third Anniversary!!!

June 8, 2009

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Alhamdulillah! Praise God! Today is the Third Anniversary of the Darvish blog :) What began as a way to promote the Sufi novel, Master of the Jinn, quickly became part of my own spiritual journey. In the back and forth of posts and comments, I have learned more than I can possibly say, and for the friendships made along the way, I am eternally grateful.

So, thank you all, good friends, dear readers, and those that chanced to pass this way. May Allah bless you with ever increasing love and wisdom.

Ameen! Ameen!

A Cup Overflowing

January 26, 2009

Love is a cup overflowing
Yet without bottom

How is this possible?
Where does all this joy come from?

Does love have no beginning,
No middle, no end?

Praise God! It must be so!
The cause and course of life

A treasure lent to spirit
His light formed in earthen clay

The true meaning of
Every verse of every Holy Book

And the hidden name of God
On King Solomon’s ring,

That the Jinn, created by the
Fire of that Love, could not disobey

Bless us then with Love, O Lord!
As Thy Name is praised

Make of it our garment
Clothe us in Thy ways

That with each breath may flow
The prayer of all our days

And bless the ink and pen
That writes these words

The eyes that read them
And the heart that knows
