Spiritual Gems of Islam: Insights & Practices from the Qur’an, Hadith, Rumi & Muslim Teaching Stories to Enlighten the Heart & Mind

After borrowing this book from my local library over and over again for almost 2 years now, I realized it was time to purchase it, and let others enjoy the library copy. Imam Jamal Rahman takes us on an exploratory journey through the essence of Islam, which is filled with wisdom, love and a deep sense of belonging.

The book is so beautifully written, with constant reminders of how the stories and teachings of the Qur’an, Sufism and other stories might translate into our own modern lives. “Even if the religious judge advises you about worldly affairs, first consult with your heart” – Hadith
I would recommend this book to anyone on a spiritual quest of (self) discovery, regardless of what your spiritual belief system might be. Get the book.

I am a muslim (moslem) and I have been seeking spiritual knowledge that can answer my questions with objective answers. I read Sufism, Hinduism (among others; Bhagavad Gita and Upanishads), and Buddhism. I read science books – Physics, Cosmology, and many sources of knowledge. All are good and open my eyes and my heart to the existence of divine beings. Us, as human are divine being. All of nature are divine. I came to this conclusion and yet still amazed and awed by this special book.

This book makes me cry and smile. I exhale the warmth of love from the divine inside me, and inhale the limitless love from the same divine in every corner of the world. Because we are One with God. The wisdom that shines the world with divine light. Imam Jamal Rahman teaches us how to identify and locate our negative ego and how to embrace it with love. Teaches us sincerity, humility and truthfulness. Get the book.
