From the Back Cover:

This book reveals the inner Islam that has been passed down through the generations. Jamal is a link in this chain, passing along the message, just as he received it from his grandfather, a village wiseman in Bangladesh. We need reminders of this "enlightened heart of Islam" in our lives, our homes, and our schools. In Jamal Rahman's book Islam is alive and well. (Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, author of Islam: A Sacred Law and What's Right with Islam.)

This heartfelt book is perfect for the classroom, whether in a Muslim context, or outside of it. It conveys a tradition of compassion and humor passed through one family that represents the best Islam has to offer. And Mr. Rahman is highly entertaining. (Michael Wolfe, author of The Hadj: An American's Pilgrimage to Mecca)

Jamal Rahman conveys the Soul of Islam from a great lineage of teachers, including his own grandparents and parents. Here is an authentic spiritual guide presenting a spacious feast for both mind and heart, with specific ways to translate that teaching through compassionate action in the world. This is an important book for our time and for all times. (Rabbi Ted Falcon, Ph.D., author of A Journey of Awakening: Meditations on the Tree of Life and co-author of Judaism for Dummies, Rabbi of Bet Alef Meditative Synagogue in Seattle)

A priceless book! You cannot read The Fragrance of Faith and not be equally inspired by its eminently practical spirituality, its deeply-felt devotion, its awesome humility, and its heartfelt humanity. (Brother Wayne Teasdale, author of The Mystic Heart: Discovering a Universal Spirituality in the World's Religions and A Monk in the World)

In simple and eloquent words, this book captures the heart and spirit of Islam. I have not had the pleasure of reading a more lovely and wise introduction to this faith, nor, for that matter to the wonders and beauty of our relationship to the sacred, whatever one's religious path. A true spiritual treasure! (David Spangler, author of Blessing: the Art and the Practice and Apprenticed to Spirit)

The Fragrance of Faith radiates clarity, wisdom, and a rich experience of life. You will not find a better introduction to both the depth and humor of this great tradition, as well as practical suggestions to make its insights your own. (Dr. Neil Douglas-Klotz, co-chair of the Mysticism Group of the American Academy of Religion and author of Desert Wisdom and The Hidden Gospel)

About the Author:
