Author: by Rosina-Fawzia Al-Rawi
THE PATH TO SELF-DISCOVERY AND INNER AND OUTER PEACEDivine Names is a unique contribution to understanding life and oneself on a deeper level: by learning to open to the Divine. It draws on original Arabic literature – often not available in European languages – and on the author’s many years of personal practice, teaching, and guiding others on their spiritual paths to healing, to becoming whole.
It focuses on the use of the Divine Names in dhikr, individual meditations, and healing practices. Whether we admit it or not, human beings are searchers: we want to understand; we want to know; we want to be known. Our quest may take many forms, yet ultimately it ends in nothing but pure praising of the Divine, even if this comes after our last breath.
The outside always furthers the inside because the task and the meaning of life is always about reuniting – about connecting everything on the outside to its inner truth. It is the knowledge of the heart which is always capable of uniting.
