    A beautiful gem of a book that opens the soul and the mind Any spiritual reader especially those who love Sufism and Rumi will find reading it time well spent

  2. Soroush Soroush says:

    This book was unfortunately everything I was afraid it'd be loosely connected new ageish spiritual concepts plus repetitive usage of the word love It was not easy to read through this book; not because it was deep and complex but because it was exhausting to see a coherent direction throughout the book It lacked analytical arguments to support the author's main ideas and I assume was mostly written for the readers who either already do or want to believe in a loose form of spirituality A noticeable and irritating issue with this book is that it is only loosely connected to Islam The author cherry picks some verses from the ur'an to serve his purpose of promoting loose spirituality The ur'anic verses could've easily been replaced with spiritual verses from any other religious book and nothing substantial would've changed In addition the author reveres Rumi to a great extent to the point that it seems his Sufism and this book is inspired by Rumi's teaching than by Islamic teachings Unfortunately author's admiration for Rumi seems to have blocked him from pursuing proper education in Islam as some of his mistakes regarding Islamic teachings make it evident that he has not pursued Islam carefully After reading the reviews on Goodreads and I had high expectations from this book Unfortunately I was disappointed Would I recommend this book to anyone interested to learn about Islam? No Would I recommend this book to anyone with an analytical mindset? NoWould I recommend this book to anyone who is adept at critical thinking? No Would I recommend this book to anyone at all? Yes to whoever that is interested to get a vague idea about Mevlana Order of Sufism

    Absolutely excellent Erudite modern and beautiful this book clears up some fundamental misunderstandings about what Sufism is and isn't and how it relates to Islam This book not only has a richness in spiritual insight it has a richness in atmosphere; out of nowhere you find yourself immersed in the texture of Sufi practice However this is by no means an instruction manual on how to be a Sufi even though there are practices explained within that will be of benefit to everyone While demonstrating that genuine mystical experience is not confined to one religion it shows how Sufism is fundamentally couched in Islam It also explains the benefits and struggles of the Sufi path I am not a Muslim but this book genuinely touched me This is a book of great value to everyone from a sociological point of view from an intellectual point of view and from the point of view of the Heart

    It took me about a year to finish this because it's too deep to get through uicker than that Every few pages my mind would be blown and then I'd have to sit uietly in a corner and Think About Things before I could come back to read a few pages This book is nourishment for MA SOUL Love it Transcendent

  5. Garett Garrido Garett Garrido says:

    I found the insight contained within THE KNOWING HEART to be uite profound It's a dense read conceptually despite the simple language but well worth the effort Sufism has always been something of interest to me because the poetry of RUMI has always spoken to me This has clarified why that interest was there Sufism has a lot to offer the modern soul and while I don't believe I'll be joining up with any local Sufi organization I will take many of the lessons from this book with me throughout my daysI heartily recommend this book to anyone on a spiritual journey who is interested in connecting with the universe through the portal of their heart ❤️

  6. Omar Taufik Omar Taufik says:

    This book was a book of depth and beautyThe author offering a solution for the human need of a universal spirituality especially in our modern ageThis book will appeal to readers of various backgrounds of Western background in search for a message of love and peace of a Muslim background rediscovering the holy revelation in the religion's sources from a different perspective and context from eastern ancient spiritual backgrounds relating the language and message in the book to works and philosophies produced in their history for centuriesAs a reader from a Muslim background the book displays the Holy ur'an and the example of the prophet Mohammad Peace be upon him as a foundation to use in the journey of returning and connecting to our source of Love and Divine Reality the works of the various saints carrying this message also illuminates the path of this journeyThe author presents Sufism as a solution for a needed universal spirituality with Rumi and the Mevlevi school as a relevant example for the cause explored in depth and detail throughout the bookSeveral times within this book the author draws my attention and with an open manner stimulates my mind with hard topics uestions and discussions on the current relevance of dogmatic religion and modern spirituality attempts of satisfying the human spiritual needs in today's worldFrom ancient religions to today's modern philosophies the book contains a good deal of useful knowledge along with an extra useful glossary the author thankfully includes at the end of the bookThis rich book had a sense of peace on myself throughout it's reading process and a different perception in viewing religion humanity and Reality

    The book I had been posting all the beautiful messages from I am glad that I took all my time to finish For those who know meI am an avid reader of Sufism but I drifted in last one year but this book helped me to reconnect with something which existed within me For seekers of Sufism this could be heavy But again if you take it slow with certain amount of background information of Islam you will set for an amazing journey This book was published in 1999 and still relevant cause spirituality is universal and isn’t bound by any time period

  8. Ammar Ammar says:

    While I am a Muslim that has grown critical of the Sufi movements I can honestly say that Shaykh Kabir has influenced me and my thinking in positive ways then I can explain from the wisdom shared in this work Wonderful introduction to the path of Rumi the path of love

  9. Lia Lia says:

    I also enjoy the poetry of Rumi This book gives some practical approaches to loving the people around you and living modestly

  10. Lauren Davis Lauren Davis says:

    Well not bad if you want to know about this particular sect of Sufism although I would have liked about Islam and its relationship to Sufism than was presented here Sufism is not a stand alone religion but rather the mystical face of Islam I must prefer the writings of Seyyed Hossein Nasr and Llewellyn Vaughan Lee on Sufism
