My story began when I had no choice but to take a religion class. I was shocked at how much I had learned from every single religion. In my culture, no one had ever mentioned the word Sufi. We were classified as Sunni or Shia, a division created centuries ago. I had discovered that there is mysticism in every religion and that Sufism is the mysticism in Islam. Then mysteriously one day, I received a pamphlet delivered to my house. In that pamphlet, I had found my answers. I then went on a religious pilgrimage (ʿumrah) to Mecca, Saudi Arabia. That was when my life changed forever and everything began.
As you begin to read, you will find scenarios that were my own personal experiences. In the process of my journey, I have faced numerous challenges. At the time, it felt like all hell broke loose on me, but with time, I began to realize how each of my challenges redirected me to the path of my destiny. If I didn’t fail, I wouldn’t be writing this book. My failures made me the person that I am today. Failure is when the universe steps in. Failure is the universe guiding you to a better direction. You see, failure is another word for trial. Embrace your trials as lessons to your next chapter. My story is my spiritual journey, which may reveal the secret of the world.
