In the Shadow of Saints
A wise person once said, "Our bodies come new, but our spirits are ancient. When packaged together, this strange combination can work miracles." With today's global issues of violence, lack of racial and religious tolerance and the void of spiritual leadership, people are losing hope and falling away from the old establishments of faith, as they are constantly failing to offer solutions and peace of mind. That is one of the many reasons why people today are adapting the "new age" school of thought-seeking alternative means to find a light to guide them amidst the present spiritual darkness and material exuberance.
But we are living in this moment, that of a new century and new generations. Every generation is identified by its great thinkers, its great philosophers, its great leaders; those who enlighten that generation by their great service towards mankind, not only for their time, but for all to follow. Those great personalities that transcend space and time become legends. They are heroes of the new age and we are living in the age of such new heroes. Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani is such a personality. He is a new type of teacher who teaches without teaching; a new age guru who melts hearts without holding a single session of Sufi gathering; a new age shaykh who inspires and illuminates the seeking heart without moving his lips.
