Description :

 
The Unveiling of Love is the inspired work of an enlightened master of Islam. Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak was the renowned spiritual leader of the Halveti-Jerrahi Order of Dervishes in Istanbul and in the U.S., as well as other countries in the West.


For the dervish, passionate and ecstatic adoration for the Divine Beloved illuminates both the heart and the mind. With the help of poems, traditional teaching stories and brief passages from the Quran, Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak unveils the meaning of spiritual affection and explores the relationship of lover and beloved.


 
             ”An all-around introduction to Sufism as taught by a modern master....
              The reader gets a feeling for the way Sufi instruction has been carried
              on through the centuries.”---Annemarie Shimmel.




Expressly written for a Western audience, The Unveiling of Love presents valuable guidance for those with long experience in Islam and for those who are encountering Sufism and the meaning of spiritual love for the first time.


The author’s preface in this new edition includes material never previously available in English. In it, Sheikh Muzaffer recounts some of his enraptured first encounters with American seekers.
