“Zikr” is a collection of long and short verses. It is a poetic invocation of the beloved, the central muse. The muse, in the poet’s perspective, is the human experience. It exists, therefore, as much in the dew of rain as in a lover’s gaze. Every verse tells its own story, a deep love of life, longing and melancholia. It draws indomitable inspiration from the human condition.

•My Review.

This book was a mixture of beautiful poems and calligraphic incantations. The book was a sweet rude through Sufism and Islamic culture with a glossary provided at the end for those who don’t understand Arabic words. The poems were very smooth and beautifully written. I loved how Islamic culture was blended with love and melancholia to form different poems that felt so touching but the only thing that I didn’t like in the book was the 2 line poetry, it was like leaving an emotion incomplete as I felt like those poems could be a little long and the emotions and feelings in them could be advanced.

The writing in the book is tough for new poetry readers but perfect for those who want new words in their vocabulary and I found some words repetitive in the poems but overall this book was a nice touch of Islamic culture and love mixed to form something beautiful with a little hard vocabulary and mesmerizing calligraphic illustrations.

It is a must-try for poetry readers and read at your own risk for new poetry readers due to its vocab.

So that’s it for today. I am so happy to try and be back. Do join me on my other social media platforms:
