    DESCRIPTION

    The Longing of the Soul does not aim to represent a guideline for the correct understanding and the correct execution of the Prayer rituals, nor does it represent a guideline for the Islamic jurists. This book tries to reawaken the sacred sensibilities we have lost. The essential goal lies in the attempt to bring back the love we have lost in terms of the acts of worship the Almighty enjoined us to fulfill, the joy of obedience to His command, and the pleasure of having faith in Him. This book represents an attempt to shed light on the inexhaustible treasures within ourselves. The seed of eternal love, which is granted by the All-Merciful, grows within the deepest interior of man. It is the raison d’etre of our sacred origin; it is the wealth of human goodness. The real love is the love for the All-Holy.
