(Re-)reading THIS book

And totally enjoying it. A good read for people who think the Sufis were just tales of the ancients and who think such people died out a long time ago.





You know, if you meet Muslims who were born and raised in some Muslim communities and hear their stories and experiences you realise how far off the mark we really are. You know that Abba song that goes "I believe in angels..."... hm.... we take Islam at the intellectual level whilst some Muslims take it at the experiential. Aren't you tired of reading about the meal and want to taste if yourself??


I am.

EDIT: I mean "I am tired of just reading about it rather than getting a chance to taste it" NOT "I am tasting it"...

please read my stuff, as I'm reading yours. Shared inter-cultural domination? or something like that.

No, I mean "I am tired of just reading about it" not "I am tasting the meal"... as IF.
