"Sutherland brings us sweet lemons from an unknown Cyprus, which startle us into recalling the world's vibrant holiness." — Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad

 

This work is inspired by the landscape and beauty of North Cyprus and a meeting and relationship with a very special man, Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani, to whom the book is dedicated.

 

Paul Abdul Wudud Sutherland is a weather-beaten old soul who came to Islam in 2004 and his book is imbued in an indelible love and longing for his Shaykh who passed away in May 2014, for his loved ones and ultimately for the divine. This fascinating work, which is comprised of poetry and prose, reveals Sutherland’s subtle encounters with his Shaykh, the late Naqhshbandi spiritual master, may Allah bless him.

 

There are also accounts of memorable meetings with imams in Cyprus, visitations of the tombs of Sufi saints and even powerful love poetry to the poet’s own wife.
