Lights of Yearning: In Praise of the Most Praised [Paperback] By Walid Lounès Bouzerar
Paperback: $14.90 (excl. taxes)
Ships in 3-5 business days
A forty-piece collection of poetry & prose by Walid Lounès Bouzerar in praise of the Beloved Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Foreword: H.E. Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi. - “In our... More > time,” one poet has exclaimed, “it is impossible to write religious poems!” Walid Lounès Bouzerar has proved the error of this comment. He has written a book of remarkable devotional poems in praise of the Prophet Muhammad, the Seal of Prophetsﷺ. He uses rhythmic repetition of the Prophet's sacred namesﷺ to generate a flowing evocation of the Beloved of Allahﷺ stretching over sixty pages. I marvel again how a poet can find new ways to present traditional material to excite a new generation of readers and reciters, as surely, these poems will not only be read, they will be sung. Brother Walid has produced a collection in which the beauty of his poetic language lives up (if this was possible) to the beauty of its subject, Muhammadﷺ. - Paul Abdul Wadud Sutherland Award-winning poet and author of 'Poems on the Life of the Prophet Muhammadﷺ'< Less

It highlights her refusal to succumb to the disasters that would prevent her from reaching her true identity—Tough Cotton. “Earth” considers how life begins and moves forward. “Cotton Seeds” provides a voice to the youth—and perhaps others who have been found, lost, or even forgotten. “Bloeming” is a recognition of who Tough Cotton is becoming or choosing not to become. “Ginned” delves into the underworld of drugs and prison. “Storms and Thorns” reflects on the troubles of life, while “Wrinkled Sheets” are where passion, heat, and comfort exist. Intense and inspirational, this collection shares the raw experiences of life—love, chaos, anger, regret, acceptance—with a stirring and unflinching voice.< Less

If you want to be in an atmosphere that is intelligent without self-involved, convoluted literary talk of people who need to prove themselves and announce themselves as artists, here is a place to and the pleasure that good literary company may offer. — Sam Cornish< Less

That drive is perhaps the most forceful of all and as such becomes an indelible spirit with which the poet has to struggle in the greatest of disadvantage, in front of a mirror that does not project an exact duplicate of the “outer self”, but rather inverts the skin to reveal the “factual self”. Therefore, vulnerability becomes poetry; sort of a naked sorceress spinning emotions like the skin does and this is what this poetry book is all about. These poems were written due to a need from the author to express irrepressible excitements, a moment of unrest, love, despair or simply a philosophical quest, never forgetting to hold words and nuances into the greatest of appreciation for poetry demands beauty!< Less
