Book Review: Reclaim Your Heart by Yasmin Mogahed


Title: Reclaim Your Heart

Author: Yasmin Mogahed

Publisher: FB Publishing, Aug 9, 2012

Book Descriptions: Reclaim Your Heart was written to awaken the heart and provide a new perspective on love, loss, happiness, and pain.  A manual of sorts, Reclaim Your Heart will teach readers how to live in this life without allowing life to own you.  It is a manual of how to protect your most prized possession- the heart.



My Review:

Reclaim Your Heart is filled with insightful reflections that cover a variety of topics that center around Love, Happiness, Hardships, Faith, Community and Life. 
The reflections, which are short and to the point, bring the reader back to the main topic of the book, our relationship with our Creator. Each reflection offers insight into coming closer to the Creator, deepening our relationship with Him and thus fixing all the physical, emotional and spiritual ills of our heart.
Yasmin Mogahed uses her own personal struggles and interactions as she delves into what is truly at risk when we move away from the our Creator. She poses thought provoking questions which causes the reader to reflect on their own struggles.
Yasmin Mogahed isn't just an inspirational and motivational speaker and writer, she is also a poet, Masha Allah. Included in the book are a little over a dozen of her poems. I had the fortunate opportunity to attend a conference where she read: I Prayed For Peace Today. It was a moving poem that left many of us in tears.
I definitely felt uplifted reading Reclaim Your Heart and hope to benefit Insha Allah as I continue my own journey to get closer to my Creator, the Al-mighty.

Author Interview: Irving Karchmar

Today, I would like to introduce Irving Karchmar, the author of Master of the Jinn: A Sufi Novel.

He has been a writer, editor and poet for many years, and a darvish of the Nimatullahi Sufi Order since 1992. He now lives near New York City, where he is currently at work on the Audiobook of Master of the Jinn.

Listen to a sample of the story here.


Welcome. Can please tell us a little bit about yourself?
I am the son of Holocaust survivors who came to America in 1948. I was actually born in newly built American Army Hospital of a DP Camp, a Displaced Persons Camp in Germany just after WWII. In fact, I use that as a scene in Master of the Jinn. I have also been a writer, editor and magazine publisher most of my working life, and dabble in poetry :) In 1992, I was initiated as a darvish of the Nimatullahi Sufi Order, and began writing Master of the Jinn six months later.
What inspired you to write Master of the Jinn?
I was participating in majlis, our twice weekly meeting, saying my z…
