Travel the Sufi Path
Kashmir Dream in Philadelphia, PA is proud to share information on author Maryam Kabeer Faye, her journey to Islam and the Sufi Path as well as the book she wrote about it.
Maryam Kabeer Faye is a traveler on the Path and loving servant of the Most High.
When she was twelve years old she was given a painted scroll of an ancient wanderer, upon which were inscribed the words: SEEK AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE. This message galvanized her soul and determined the course of her life.
Following the call, she set out on the journey, internally and then externally, and was guided around the world many times, from one remarkable being to the next, everywhere collecting messages and clues, the gems of Divine Guidance.
This journey, as the book’s title suggests has been one of profound transformation and illumination. Not by her own choice but by the will of God, she was guided through the exploration of the revealed paths into the heart of Islam, finding there the eternal truth brought by all the prophets and messengers (a.s.) sent by God to mankind.
This journey into the heart of Islam was directed by Sufi Muslim Masters she was destined to meet, in various places around the world, with whom she studied deeply. Her quest in search of liberating truth and divine knowledge led her to Sheikh Harun Rashid Faye of Senegal West Africa, from whom she received the blessing of The Mustafawyya Tariqat. Through intensive training at his hand, she has become a Sheikha representing this noble Sufi Order.
By the decree that knowledge is a sacred gift that must be shared, she is actively engaged in sharing the knowledge received, teaching and always learning, in circles large and small, including as a regular presenter at conferences on Islam, Sufism, and Spirituality.
This book, “JOURNEY THROUGH TEN THOUSAND VEILS The Alchemy of Transformation on the Sufi Path” is an in depth account of the inner and outer journey of the soul on the path of return to its Lord. At every moment, in every state and station, it is an invitation to the reader to set out and make the great Journey! This book is a significant and revealing social commentary, dispelling many myths and stereotypes such as the proposition, often fostered by the media, that women are inevitably oppressed in Islam. On the contrary, it is by entering into the heart of Islam that the author was liberated, elevated, and empowered to serve the Creator and His Creation with ever deeper sincerity and illumined faith.
The myth that Islam is a “religion of terror’ was dispelled in the course of her journey by her realization and deep experience that the Prophet Muhammad was not sent by the One Most Merciful but as a Mercy to all the worlds. This is the profound truth of Islam that she discovered hidden behind the screen of the world that is often projecting such brutal visions, which are totally covering up and hiding the beautiful garden of the Truth.
Born Jewish in Hollywood, California, embracing the light of the Prophet Jesus (a.s.) in monasteries in Europe, Maryam embraced Islam in Hebron, near Jerusalem, a few minutes away from the tomb of the Prophet Abraham (a.s.). In following the example of the father of all the monotheistic religions, she dispelled the myth that there must be conflict between the descendants of this great man, sent by the Creator, as were all the prophets (a.s) to guide mankind to His path of Truth.
Growing up in Hollywood, the San Fernando Valley and then Berkeley, California, she was guided in her journey to many extraordinary places on the earth, arriving finally in Africa, realizing, there, the deep truth that all lives are totally interconnected, and united with our own, thus dispelling the great myth that the creations of the One Most Loving Creator can be separated by any racial distinctions.
These are some of the many falsehoods and illusions dispelled for the author in the course of her journey in search of the Truth that would make her free. Travel with her on the epic journey in order to gain the knowledge that may also set you free.
