Exclusive Interview with leading scholar of Islam: Omid Safi

Exclusive Interview with leading scholar of Islam: Omid SafiMy family hails from Iran, and I was born in Florida. I spent a significant part of my childhood in Iran, and have been blessed to spend some of the last few decades in US, Canada, UK, Egypt, Turkey, Morocco, and other countries. I came to Duke to study medicine, and got into medical school, but somewhere along the way fell in love with Sufi poetry.

Accurately and sensitively translated by leading scholar of Islam Omid Safi, the writings of Jalal al‑Din Rumi can now be read alongside passages by Kharaqani, ‘Attar, Hafez of Shiraz, Abu Sa‘id‑e Abi ’l‑Khayr, and other key Muslim mystics. –Amazon

In Radical Love: Teachings from the Islamic Mystical Tradition, Dr. Omid Safi shares poems and sayings of the greatest Muslim mystics addressing the ultimate foundation of everything good and worthwhile – expressions of Divine Love.
