Poetry

Forty Windows -- and more
Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

Human expression is a reflection of the consciousness that we have been endowed with. Like music, poetry can express the physical, experiential or higher reflection of subtle meanings and insights.

When the heart is empty the mind is illumined then the poetic expressions are echoes of divine truth, withstanding the test of time and place.

Human spirit originates from the zone of light which is before time and space and years from that ‘eternal’ garden during its journey through this world. This book of short poems and Sufi songs are to encourage us along this journey.

Path to Light
Diwans of Shaykh Muhammad ibn al-Habib and
Wird of al-Haydariyah al-Shadhiliyah
Compiled by

Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri

There are a number of prescriptions for the wayfarer that will help him or her on the journey towards the Higher. The most important is the companionship of like-minded people and singing the praise of the Creator. If the diwan is approached and sung properly the wayfarer will discover a wide variety of tonics to suit every ill. The effect of people’s gathering with sincere intention combined with the specific use of sound polishes the heart of the seeker, freeing it to reflect the spark of divine light that is already there.
