About this ebook

“So often we are asked where and how one accesses the inner heart of the Islamic tradition — here it is!" —Professor Omid Safi, Duke University

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.

Secrets of Divine Love serves as a compass and guiding light that returns you to the source of divine peace and surrender. Through the practices and pillars of Islam, you will learn how to unlock your spiritual potential and unveil your divine purpose. A. Helwa uses a rational, yet heart-based approach towards the Qur'an that not only enlightens the mind, but inspires the soul towards deeper intimacy with Allah. By weaving together dozens of inspiring mystical stories, Qur’an verses, Hadith, poetry, psychology, and science, the author breaks down Islam in a way that is both digestible and inspiring for millennial Muslims.

A. Helwa not only unveils dozens of spiritual secrets hidden within the Qur’an, but she does so in an uplifting and gentle way that meets each reader exactly where they are on the path to God. While staying true to classical Islamic theology, A. Helwa’s emphasis on the forgotten teachings of love in Islam has a way of speaking not to just Muslims but to spiritual seekers of all traditions. Unlike your average book on religion that is focused solely on rules and outer practices, Secrets of Divine Love is a motivational and inspiring guide of how to experience the beauty hidden in the heart of the Qur'an and the Islamic tradition from a place of love, passion, and joy. If you have been longing to experience a more intimate and loving relationship wiht Allah, then this book was written for you.

This book is absolutely incredible and knows no limits as to who can read it. It can touch the heart of the non-Muslim with insightful and open minded language that educates about the universal compassion and care the creator has for everyone. For the muslim, it reminds us of his love and teaches more perspectives as to how we can become a more mindful human being and Muslim. Alhamdullilah this book has impacted my life in so many positive ways.

This book changed my life! It is not just about Islam it’s about approaching God through love and joy and with your whole heart. The stories and verses speak to the heart and awaken the soul to Divine Love in a way I haven’t experienced. That’s the thing it’s not just reading it’s a way of being that you experience. And finally a book on Islam I can share with non-Muslim friends that is written with love and gentleness. Thank you!
