Since 1995, Mahmoud Mostafa has been devoted to the study and practice of Tassawuf. In the course of his development, he received teachings from Sufi shaikhs in the USA, Turkey, Syria, South Africa, and Egypt and follows the Mevlevi path of Jalaluddin Rumi under the guidance of Shaikh Kabir Helminski. In addition to extensive study of the Quran and Hadith, he has also studied the works of Imam Ali, Rumi, Ibn Arabi, and other Sufi masters. He has facilitated Sufi circles, Quran study groups, and participated in inter-faith dialogues. He has been involved in the translation of several books, including The Book of Hadith, The Mevlevi Wird, The Light of Dawn, and Women of Sufism.
We will also be showcasing the new book being offered from Chickpea Press on the day: The 99 Names of Allah. An inspiring and colourful guide that creatively introduces the 99 Names to younger readers, parents and teachers, the book engages the heart and illuminates the richness of Islamic spirituality by quoting sayings from the prophets and holy saints, including Rumi. There will be sample spreads on display and more information about the book.
