by Rafey Habib,
by Kube Publishing.



Description :


Shades of Islam is a dazzling and moving collection of poetry that addresses faith, love, politics and Islam in the twenty-first century.


                                   ''You think Muslims
                                     Are repressed, that
                                     They berate love,
                                     That they envy you!
                                     Let's just say: they
                                     Have great love:
                                     If only you knew!
''





          “I find [the poems] deeply moving and beautifully felt and written with
           simplicity and a profundity that is wholly disarming.”
                                                                                   --- Harold Schweizer,
                                                                            Professor of English, Bucknell University
.



          “The poems of Rafey Habib offer a window onto the sensibility of a
           modern American Muslim, with unclinching honesty and richly informed
           compassion. The great humanistic tradition of poetry known in Arabic
           and other Eastern languages here finds a contemporary English voice,
           which will be recognized like a lost friend who has unaccountably been
           rediscovered.”                             ---Carl W. Ernst, William R. Kenan, Junior,
                                               Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies, UNC-Chapel Hill
.
