Master of the Jinn Comments from Readers

"Every page, every phrase of Master of the Jinn is vibrating with hidden meanings, opening up a sea of wonder and a mountain of knowledge, kindled by the gentle fire of poetry.
Musnawira Marina Montanaro, Switzerland

"All I can say is BUY THE BOOK! Its a masterpiece! I was so happy when it arrived in the mail. A Sufi novel is a great thing and a marvelous manifestation of Islamic/Sufi culture in the West. But when I began reading it, I found I couldn't put it down. Its a real 'page turner.' May Allah bless and reward the author and publisher; and may Allah bless our ummat with continued manifestations of genius."
Dawoud, mysticjaz.com, New York City

"A pearl of a book, Master of the Jinn is parable, metaphor and insight into Sufi practice all at the same time. It has been said that Sufi's drink from the river from which all streams come, and Irving has written a book accessable to all religions and denominations that can only inform and excite. The real skill is in writing a tale that works on so many different levels, from a simple rollercoaster of a yarn that your children will love to a rich and complex spiritual teaching tale. I loved it"
Adam Sargant - deep-mind.com - Yorkshire, England

"I've been waiting for a Sufi novel. Who would have thought that it would be perfect and written by a fellow traveler? Then again, what else could it be if it were truly to be a Sufi novel. Each word a measured breath. Soul food that leaves you hungry for more."
Sparrow Johnson, Khaniqahi Santa Cruz, California

Hi brother! Just had to let you know, Allah has blessed me with free time to enjoy your novel and I'm so thankful to Him for your wisdom and beautiful way of storytelling!

Salaam, Irving,

I've started reading your book, and I want to tell you how much I am enjoying it. I couldn't imagine what a "Sufi novel" might read like, but your story-telling ability and skill with words has allowed me to enter the story easily and freely. I know very little about Sufism, and I appreciate how you seamlessly instruct the reader, while all the while keeping the tempo and momentum of the story.

I've just finished reading the book.There were moments I couldn't keep my eyes dry and eagerly wanting to know how safe all darvishes will be at the end of the story.It's an engrossing storyline that shows your devotion and love to your faith and master.

I'll be happy if you'll kindly tell the symbolic meanings behind the prostrations of the darvish before entering the master's room and at the sufreh.Thanks.

Salaam and Greetings of Peace Dear Friends:

Thank you Annie and Marahm for the kind and generous comments :) And Anonymous, prostrating before the Master's door before initiation is symbolically the giving of your life over to the guidance of the Master, to whom you also pledge complete obedience. It is not a form of worship as some have thought, but has an entirely different meaning. As for the bowing at the sufreh and at other times, this kind of bow is only the slight nodding of the head and bending from the waist, as a sign of respect. The confusion of this point is my fault for not writing more clearly, and not taking into account the different meanings of bowing in different cultures.

Ya Haqq!
