Description :

Lore of Light : Stories from the Lives of the Prophets, Based on Ancient Arab and Turkish Sources, From Adam to Isa, peace be upon them.

These miraculous stories of the Messengers of the Almighty and Merciful God, which are now again made accessible to the English-speaking reader, provide not only an unprecedented insight into the characters of outstanding men and women and their dazzling humanity their laughter and their tears, their hopes and their fears they are also nothing less than an outline of the history of mankind on this planet.

From the Publishers Preface :

" These stories of the lives of the Prophets from Adam to Jesus peace be upon them all based on ancient Arabic and Turkish sources, can be appreciated for their immediacy and linguistic liveliness alone. They are, however, the faithful testimony, as preserved by Islamic tradition, of events that Allah Almighty visited upon His Messengers who are examples of His Mercy and the most remarkable among His creatures. They may serve us all as admonition, edification and guidance, great and small, delightful and terrifying, including some stories that have hardly ever been heard in the West.

It is our pleasure to make Hajja minas much-loved book, which has been out of print for some time, available again to the English-speaking reader in a handsome edition. Our heart-felt thanks goes not only to Hajja Rukiye and Sheikh Mehmet Efendi, who entrusted us with this task, but also and especially to Hajja Radhia Shukrullah who has reviewed the entire text by comparing the last published edition with the original version, originally transcribed from the late Hajja minas spoken word and translated from Arabic and Turkish into English many years ago, completing this task with remarkable energy and due diligence, We wish our readers a refreshing read." ---Salam and Hagar Spohr.

The Author :

Hajja mina dil, born in Kazan in the former Tatar Soviet Republic in 1933 as the third of four children, had fled with her family from anti-Islamic repression, first from the Soviet Union to the region of Turkish Erzurum, then following the disruptive introduction of secularism, from Turkey to Damascus, Syria. There she met Abdullh ad-Daghistn, the Grand Sheikh of the honourable Naqshband-Tarqa, who arranged for the young woman to be married to his disciple and later successor Muhammad Nzim dil. She lived with him in the traditional setting of this Tarqa, following a tradition that goes back to Sayyidin Ab Bakr rdiya llhu anhu, the companion of the Prophet, salla llhu alayhi wa sallam, who carries the epithet as-Siddq, the sincere one. The tales presented here bear the hallmark of credibility and are of special value.

From 1981, Hajja mina lived with her family in Lefke on the island of Cyprus. She accompanied her husband on his journeys throughout the world, until her death in 2004, may Allh sanctify her soul.
