Sheikha Maryam Kabeer Faye is one of those rare individuals who from a young age was called and guided by the light of God to seek truth and to continue journeying towards the Divine Presence regardless of the challenges and obstacles that face they who sincerely seek awakening.
Her quest for knowledge, wisdom and understanding led her throughout the world and to the threshold of many teachers, yet she found the deepest expression of light amongst the wisemen of al-Islam and embraced the path without resistance.
In this heartfelt interview with Sheikha Maryam, she and I discuss the state and condition of the Ummah and the world, the importance of light in the life of the believer, the value of patience, tolerance and compassion, the ability to see and witness the signs of God that continually manifest in our lives and upon the path, and much more.
