    Heaven blocked from Furat,

    Heaven prostrating to God,

    Hell surrounding Furat,

    by: Muhammad M. Khalfan

    A unique and original piece of research on the sacred supplication of Ziyarat Ashura of Imam Husayn (as). The reader will come to appreciate the core reality of the ziyarah being: "to deflect from other than the visited one". The reflections in this publication centre around this theme: if we truly intend Imam al-Husayn (as) then we must realize that he is the very epitome of Islam. The more we revive Islamic values individually and socially, the closer we come to Imam al-Husayn (as) and therefore our ziyarat gains true meaning.
