I picked up this book early in July 2009, seeking a book, a memoir, a biography of anyone living NOW that would enlighten me, motivate me, inspire me, and I came across Maryam Kabeer Faye's book, "A Journey Through 10,000 Veils". I would have to say the title and the cover attracted me first. When I began to read it..I couldn't put it down. I even got a high lighter marker to high light things that 'got me', towards the end of the book, I realized I highlighted just about the whole book!! You wouldn't believe it, but really I felt this connection w/ the author..it was as if I was reading my own Journey, just sooo many things she experienced I was like, HEYYYY I know what she's talking about! Some of the things that I have experienced were so similar to hers, places she went to, feelings she felt..my father was from Jerusalem, from a town called il Izareeya #Bethany#...when she wrote about her walks there and the connection that she had felt with Jesus, peace be upon him, especially when she was there, I totally understood her emotions. Often, I felt her words were speaking to me! I felt like this book was written just for me, for MY SOUL! I think anyone who is searching for a deeper meaning to life, a connection w/ God, for spirituality, for deep friendships for God's sake..you will really enjoy reading Journey Through 10,000 Veils.

When I was a child growing up I really felt a connection with a book called, "Are You My Mother" by P.D. Eastman. This book, "Journey Through Ten Thousand Veils" is a grown-up version to that. :)

Anyway, I just had to share w/ you all how much this book affected me! You can't imagine the great impact it had on me. I was truly sad when I completed the book b/c it felt like a dear friend departed from me.. I truly love her for God's sake..and I feel so blessed for getting an opportunity to read it...this book is a Treasure!

Peace and Blessings to all..

The author is utterly extraordinary. She's a breakthrough person. A Jew who converted to Islam, and specifically Sufism,
the inner mystical dimension of Islam, she introduces to the world the true enlightened spiritual center of Islam, and her
book reflects the mystical, alchemical path to enlightenment and transformation of the Sufi Path. She reveals the universal
spiritual aspect of Islam, a religion of Peace, not war or aggression. She is a bridge between the sanctity of Judaism
and Islam, and the bridge to the sanctity of all the world's great religions. Her story must be heard. Her story and her
very Being dispels the myths so many have about Islam - only it is not the true Islam - it is an abberation that has to do with power and control. Maryam Kabir Faye's story and journey is about love, and healing, and transformation. A MUST read!

After reading the opening poem that sets the backdrop for this incredible story, I closed my book and let the scene come to life. Then I turned to the first chapter and was taken on a very long journey, step by step, on the author's path to spiritual enlightenment. When one becomes a seeker of Truth, there is no road map to follow. There is no planning ahead for such a journey; but the trip is anything but random. At each place experienced by Maryam Kabeer Faye and retold in Journey Through Ten Thousand Veils, we hear how her Truth grows; and, for me, each stop reminded me of a stop on my own very different journey along the same sort of path. In times where the bridges that joined us at Creation to all other inhabitants of our world have been burned by hatred, anger, and fear, it is encouraging to hear the story of someone whose life has been all about building the bridges that connect us -- man to man and woman to woman. Her conclusion that, "The way of Muhammad is Mercy for All the Worlds," speaks to the heart of Islam that has been forgotten, accused, and misrepresented in a time when our fear sees only the terroristic acts of a few as defining many. Our world desperately needs the sort of Love, Truth, Compassion and Healing that are the heart of this woman's journey to the Light. May Sheika Maryam be blessed for sharing the search of one woman toward the removal of the "veils" that separated her from the clarity of the Light that is her birthright. May many who read her story be similarly blessed and encouraged to "love all lives as your own," to "repel evil with what is better," to see and hear with our hearts all the Light that shines in our world -- even when the night seems the darkest.

I was blessed to listen to Maryam speak and then to obtain this book directly from her. I read each chapter with such relishment - I savored each time spent with her words of her story of the unique journey to spirtual certainty. I would read slowly like ingesting beautiful food. I would close the book so as to save pages for a new next reading time. I desired that my journey through her journey would last as long as possible. I felt her emotions, her longings and her realizations. Her book is a crystal clear reflection of a spiritual seekers search. As I reflected that for myself also, every odd adventure, simultaneous chapters and seeming opposite variables of my earth walk wandering in many directions was a perfect path to peace. I understand more fully now that the journey is the destination.

I will cherish this book, keep it close at hand for wonderous reminders of the true meaning of a spiritual quest. I know more now that each as each soul steps onto a holy path often as a solo pilgrim and may then chose like she and I, find within myself the Divine seed and find support and nourishment and soul fullfillment within a sacred community.

The spiritual journey of Maryam is unique in some ways.It resembles the truth finding journey of one of Arabian prophet's companion,Salman Farsi.He was born a Zoroasteran but later embraced other religions,one after the other.Frustrated he asked one of his dying masters to reveal him the Truth.The master pointed him to Arabia..where the final messenger was shortly to appear,giving him the signs to recognise the prophet.Circumstances led tim to the place as a slave of some Jews where the prophet migrated.After testing the prophet he embraced Islam with full heart.
Maryam also was led in phases on a similar journey,where, atlast she found her truth.

Like drinking a tall glass of water after walking mile upon mile in the blazing heat, was what it felt like when I finished reading Sheikha Maryam's book, The Journey Through Ten Thousand Veils. It was refreshing and rejuvenating to my soul to be able to journey with the Sheikha on her quest through all the veils of illusion back to the "ONE". Her story shows what marvelous experiences can happen when one surrenders totally to God. I would recommend this book to anyone that doubts the power of the Unseen, and to anyone that has lost faith and waivered off the path. A must read to any seeker of TRUTH. Truely a blessing, alhamdulillah

I was in search for a teacher and a guide who could help me reach and connect to Allah in the rightful manner, and after reading this book, i feel like my search has finally ended, insh'Allah. I watched the interview of Sheikha Maryam Kabeer faye on tv and not only i was connected, right after the show i went online and bought this book. As i was reading through the chapters, i felt very blessed and satisfied that i bought it. Its very spritual! Loving my Creator everyday more and more has brought peace in my life, and this book is a sign for me that has inspired me to be close to my Lord even more.

This is a fascinating first hand account of the intimate interaction between teacher and disciple. This seeker's path brought her into the closest relationship with some great sufi teachers, nost notably Bawa Muhaiyaddeen, considered the first Islamic saint to be buried in the west. For anyone who wonders, "what is the mystical path really like", this opens the window wide!

I highly recommend this book for spiritual seekers. I was so engaged by the fast-moving and compelling story that I read most of it in just three days!

The author tells an engaging tale of a physical journey intertwined with a mystical journey. On the physical plane, she takes us through the exciting times of the late 20th century into the early 21st century, as she describes in wonderful detail her journeys through many of the world's most beautiful countries, including Turkey, India, Afghanistan, Senegal and many more. Many of us will never travel to all of these places, but we can have a magical taste of them here.

On the spiritual plane the author takes us with her through her journey of seeking, as she discovers various spiritual teachers and religious traditions. Ultimately, her heart finds peace in God, and in embracing all of humanity as her family. There is great grace in the lessons that she learns along her path, and anyone could benefit from reading this wonderful history.
