Secrets of Divine Love:
A Spiritual Journey into the Heart of Islam

by A. Helwa

You are loved by the Divine exactly as you are in this very moment. Secrets of Divine Love was written for the longing heart, for the one who is searching for something they have not been able to find. For the one who sometimes spirals into hopelessness and cannot help but feel too imperfect for a perfect God to love. This book is for the one who is at the edge of their faith, who has experienced religion as a harsh winter instead of the life-bearing spring it was sent to be by God.
