Rabia Christine Brodbeck
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.
