American Jew Finds Peace in Islam

“For many people, the word ‘Islam’ conjures up images of violence, suicide bombings and holy war. But not for Maryam Kabeer Faye, a Jewish-born American. She believes the religion she adopted after a long spiritual journey represents peace, love and mercy.

Kabeer Faye describes her transformative experience, from her Jewish roots to Sufi Islam, in her recent book, “Journey through Ten Thousand Veils:the Alchemy of Transformation on the Sufi Path.”

Maryam is one of those human beings you love to meet! Kind hearted and yet firm in her belief and always ready to tell you about it. Each time I have met her she has been a bright light with her big smile! Honesty, perspicacity, compassion and knowledge. I have heard of this book before, I hope to get a copy of it soon and review it here in the blog. For the full story click on the link above.
