For[God]: A Remembrance of Love in the Path of Losing
Noor Iskandar's words have an aquatic quality - flow, lightness, and a transparency that leaves an unexpected impression. And water is patient.
His observations are keen and his introspection is sharper and deeper still, bordering on munajat (whispered supplications).
With this first anthology, Noor Iskandar seems well on his way to becoming the poet for an emerging generation of young, well-travelled Singapore Muslims who remain rooted in the religion.
