O Humankind: Surah Ya-Sin
The Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) summarized Chapter Ya-Sin with the following noble hadith: “Everything has a heart. The heart of the Quran is Chapter Ya-Sin.”
The Qur’an too has a heart, and we can access that heart when we listen with the heart, from the heart. The author of this text, the contemporary female Sufi teacher Cemalnur Sargut, has a unique ability to take us to the heart, and into the heart of the Qur’an.
Her book “O Humankind”, translated for the first time into English, is an elaborate commentary on the Chapter Ya-Sin, the heart of the Quran, about the inner meanings of each of its verses. In it, she draws on the insights of classical Muslim sages, commentaries, Rumi, Ibn ‘Arabi and others to open up the heart.
