2.5 Classic Sufi Poetry Classes

Sufism or Tasawwuf, is the inward dimension of Islam, the main manifestation and the most important and central crystallization of practice in Islam. Classical Sufi texts intensify teachings and practices of the Quran and the sunnah (exemplary teachings and practices of the Islamic prophet Muhammad peace be upon him). They endorse process of realizing ethical and spiritual goals and function as teaching tools for their attainment.

IRSHAD Global presents this unique program to our disciples from all over the world who are seeking a deep conversation with their own self, and about their relationship with The Divine Presence.  Anse Hanan Al Charief, a Sufi woman in Ottawa, brings a wealth of classical Sufi poems and will convene this class. There are scrolls of Rabia Al Adawiya, Rumi, Yunus Emre and other Sufi poets which we promote as a joy to read – modern approaches on its humanistic and ascetic values, as opposed, to religious instruction especially for the newly converted Muslim.
