Mining the Jewels, Sewing the Quilt: A Deep Encounter with Passages from the Generous Qur’an
December 2, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
What does it mean that, “Allah is the Light of the heaven and the earth,” or that, ‘You cause the day to enter the night and the night to enter the day, bring forth the living from the dead and the dead from the living’? What are “the keys of the Unseen?” or the “Doors of Subtle Grace,” and why is it that, “Surely with difficulty comes ease”?
An exploratory journey into beloved Qur’anic passages and the endless bounties and treasures therein. We’ll draw on Physicians of the Heart, the Morning Litany of Pir Nureddin Jerrahi, Shaykh Nur’s Three Days of Prayer and al-Qushayri’s Subtle Allusions, an unmatched collection of ancient Sufi commentaries. Adding the lights of your own experience, guidance, and intuition, you’ll begin your patchwork quilt of blessing, support and sustenance. Even a drop from the Luminous Ocean is still the Ocean!
Presenter: Karima Vargas-Bushnell
