Divine Flashes of HusaynTwenty-one excerpts of sermons, speeches, letters and poems from the last six months of Imam Hussain's life follow, in original Arabic and translation without commentary, aside from necessary context and notes in back matter of the text which cite sources and provide a few comments from the author and/or translator. Each passage is only a page or two of reading, making the whole work, notes and all, only about 75 pages. The appeal of short passages and small books is accessibility to a public which includes people who desire to learn and grow on the Right Path but lack desire, will, or ability to digest large amounts of text.

  • PDF

Moral Management

According to the author, all human beings are in need of some leadership skills because everyone is accountable and responsible towards others, like spouses towards one another, parents to their children, or employees to their employer. Thus, Islamic teachings on leadership are relevant to all of us at some level. It suggests we take the responsibility of leadership seriously, as leaders are accountable to the individuals they oversee: "This leadership is a trust given to you. So may the mercy of Allah be distanced from that person – until the Day of Resurrection – who acts with treachery in regards to it."

Life lessons in comics!The graphic format of 40 Sufi Comics encourages reflection and application. People who do not like to read, people who are very busy, or people who prefer to get straight to the point or take things in small chunks can all easily digest a short comic and a few short related verses and traditions and then put the book down for another day. The lessons in each anecdote are simple enough for a small child but deep enough for a learned and pious religious scholar to be able to transform their selves in application.
