Rabia spent countless nights wrapped in meditation over verses of beauty from the holy Book.

Imam Jamal Rahman will offer reflections on precious wisdom gleaned from the Qur’an and sayings of the Prophet Muhammad that have perfumed the hearts of Sufi mystics. These universal insights and practices from the Islamic Tradition can help illuminate the path of seekers of any faith as well as those unaffiliated with any tradition.
