  1. “One is left feeling both grateful that such an authentic volume has been published in this field, and inspired by the profundity of its content.”
    --Islamic Quarterly
  2. “This remarkable collection of essays . . . conveys the symmetry, balance, and interplay of illumination and depth that are characteristic of an authentic Islamic building or work of art . . . For those interested in spirituality generally, as well as those within the Islamic tradition, these essays are highly recommended. It is rare to find a contemporary work on this genre which so effectively engages the spirit as well as the intellect in order to convey this mode of spirituality."
    --Gnosis Magazine
  3. "At a time when the mass media daily confront the public with news about Islamic jihad and Muslim terrorists, a work on Islamic spirituality is more than welcome . . . this book will open the readers’ eyes to aspects of Islam which are so often overlooked in the West.”
    --The Muslim World
