'The reign of the imperious self results in a loss of spiritual yearning.'

'Angels Unveiled, A Sufi Perspective'
by Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani (Author), Tonette Sazonoff (Illustrator), Sachiko Murata (Preface)
The traditional Islamic universe is replete with angels who perform various functions according to God's command, and the Qur'an and Hadith speak often of angels and their roles. At a time when interest in angels is again aroused in the West, this book - which speaks with traditional authority and clarity - is a welcome and happy addition to the discussion!
