Sufi Comics Rumi: Volume 2

scrvol2

I have had the greatest pleasure to be asked to review this second volume of Comics, produced, as you can see by Mohammed Ali Vakil, Mohammed Arif Vakil and Rahil Mohsin.

I begin in saying that i enjoyed them immensely and learned a lot from them and then I will give a summary about some of the contents and the inspirations and thoughts generated in my by them.

The Contents are as follows:

Table of Contents

  1. The Three Pearls
  2. Make  Yourself Ready to Do All He Wants
  3. Be Worthy of My Gifs
  4. Not the Garden but the Gardener
  5. Never Turn Away from Me
  6. Moses and the Shepherd
  7. Your Longing for me was My Messenger to You
  8. The Wine and the Cup
  9. Keep Moving, Keep Growing
  10. The Sublime Art of Gathering-in Fasting
  11. All through the Night God Is Calling Us

mandsMy most favourite story is that of moses and the Shepherd since it reminds us that God hears all our prayers in every language whether we are Muslim or not, even when we are pagan or polytheistic. Yet teaches that if believers were to emulate them then that is to sin. This also reminds us that sometimes in Scripture God is Anthropomorphized so that He can better make Himself understood.

The Comics also contain pages of Text written in both Arabic and English which contain quotes from the Holy Quran and from the sayings of Muhammad (s) which I take to be hadith. The one cited above it so similar to something the Prophet Jesus son of Mary said in the Christian Scriptures that one sees that truth with truth repeated over time – is truth.

We also note the immanence of God, nearness of God being a Spiritual Journey.

wingsBorn with wings, something not quite understood yet apprehended.

As a Christian, and member of a Muslim Christian interfaith group I find it very easy to aim to become a Sufi, since being so seems to transcend sectarianism to provide that heart of teaching.

This is is what these Comics do so very well: their presentation is enticingly engaging, appealing to adults and children alike,providing stepping stones in the form of questions to greater understanding of God’s intention for humanity. Inspiring its readers to read the Quran the hadith and to greater understand their faith.

They break down the walls of misunderstanding between Islam and other faiths because they demonstrate that the Saints and Prophets of God reveal similar or the same sayings and teachings as their own.

Again – they are a  valuable teaching and learning medium highly recommended by myself

How Poor People Live – Sufi Comics

What is wealth? True wealth. Is it Sprawling Mansions, Stately Gowns, Uber-luxurious food? Or is it having a good nights sleep, being well-nourished, being loved?

This remarkable story puts true wealth in perspective. The kind father hopes to teach the son lesson in fulfillment instead is shown a beautiful lesson in perspective and gratitude.

I can so relate to this story. You see, I am constantly learning from my beautiful children. By the simple yet profound questions they ask. Their observations and their comments.

Sometimes just a simple Why from my son or daughter, leaves me stunned and speechless. Why indeed am I doing what I’m doing? Is it purposeful and meaningful? If so, what is the purpose and meaning? Or is it purely out of blind habit? Or to have acceptance of those around me?

Thanks to my children, I am pushed to a better version of myself constantly. Just like the father is in this story.
