As religious practices and rites undergo successive transformations and become commonplace over time, they become increasingly detached from their original meaning.
The soul matures through adversity, not complacency and comfort. We must endeavor to realize our aspirations.

'Angels Unveiled, A Sufi Perspective'
By Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani (Author), Tonette Sazonoff (Illustrator), Sachiko Murata (Preface)

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!
