wardah: ‘rose’ in Arabic; the rose is a symbol of the path of spiritual realisation, which starts as a bud and unfolds itself despite the thorns; at full bloom, the rose is a symbol, in Sufi poetry, for the Beloved
book: a portable container consisting of a series of printed and bound pages that preserves, announces, expounds, and transmits knowledge to a literate readership across time and space
Wardah Books: an independent bookstore specialising in Sufism
Whether you are waiting at a bus stop, lining up at a taxi-stand, sipping coffee at your favourite hangout or sitting on a bench at a crowded mall, dive into a good book and be transformed by the experience of the printed word. Nothing preserves, announces, expounds and transmits knowledge across time and space quite like a book. Blogs, ebooks and tweets come and go, but the book on your shelf is a constant, unassuming companion.
Our little bookshop started in 2002 and over the years we have become part of the community; hosting events and book-readings. Wardah has become a shared living room where people come, linger and browse.
At Wardah, we are advocates of literacy and the enabling of effective reading, thinking and writing. We also believe that there is much to read. So pick up a book today.
