New Audio and Articles on Islam / Building Bridges 2011

With thanks to Shaykh Hamza Yusuf and the friends at Sandala, we have two new articles in our Islam page: “Climbing Mount Purgatorio” and “Foundations of the Spiritual Path”, a translation from Qawa’id al-Tasawwuf by Sidi Ahmad Zarruq (1442–1493), one of the masters of the Shadhili lineage.

In our audio library we have an insightful new talk by Shaykh Abdal Hakim Murad (T.J. Winter) on “The Presence of the Qur’an”, shedding light on the phenomenon of Islamic civilisation by conveying the believers’ experience of the presence of their sacred book, with its ability to reach into the mysterious depths of the soul.

Finally, thanks to the Archbishop of Canterbury and The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs at Georgetown University, we have in our Video page new direct links to the lectures recorded this year in Qatar at the Building Bridges Seminar. The speakers include Michael Plekon, Reza Shah-Kazemi, Philip Sheldrake, Dheen Mohamed, Caner Dagli and Daniel Madigan.
