Présentation de l'éditeur

A mystical adventure tale on the Sufi path of Love.
Here is a tale set on the Path of the Heart, a mystical adventure wherein a modern-day Sufi master sends seven companions on a quest for the original Ring of Power, and the greatest treasure of the ancient world - King Solomon's ring. It is the very same seal ring of a hundred legends, given to King Solomon by God to command the Jinn, those terrifying demons of living fire.
By sea and across deserts, they are led by a strange faqir guide of many names. Through the mightiest of storms and into a lost city, the travelers come at last to the gateway of the Subtle Realm, the land of the Jinn.
But the quest has a strange effect on everyone chosen to go: visions enter their dreams, remembrances and tears fill their hearts, and mysteries abound; unearthly storms and unending night, the Gates of Heaven open
at last, and invincible demons of smokeless fire.
It is a tale woven of ancient legends found in the Old Testament, the Talmud, and the Koran, and although it is set in the present, the search for the truth of the ring leads them into a circle of ageless destiny, where the companions discover not only the fate of the Jinn, but also the Path of Love and the infinite Mercy of God.

Book Description

Here is a tale set on the Path of the Heart, a beautifully written mystical adventure wherein a modern-day Sufi master sends seven companions on a quest for the original Ring of Power, and the greatest treasure of the ancient world - King Solomon's ring. It is the very same seal ring of a hundred legends, given to King Solomon by God to command the Jinn, those terrifying demons of living fire.

By sea and across deserts, they are led by a strange faqir guide of many names. Through the mightiest of storms and into a lost city, the travelers come at last to the gateway of the Subtle Realm, the land of the Jinn.

But the quest has a strange effect on everyone chosen to go: visions enter their dreams, remembrances and tears fill their hearts, and mysteries abound; unearthly storms and unending night, the Gates of Heaven open
at last, and invincible demons of smokeless fire.

It is a tale woven of ancient legends found in the Old Testament, the Talmud, and the Koran, and although it is set in the present, the search for the truth of the ring leads them into a circle of ageless destiny, where the companions discover not only the fate of the Jinn, but also the Path of Love and the infinite Mercy of God.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Masterpiece of Modern Islamic Mysticism 8 février 2005
Par Dawoud Kringle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
This story has everything one could want. It in no way conflicts with Sufism and its spirit and beliefs, it is well written, moderatly fast paced, and thrilling and adventurous - something you don't expect from Sufi writings. One walks away from reading this book transformed.

Mr. Karchmar is a genius of Sufi fiction. His work is among the newly forming stages of a tradition of Sufism / Islam in the West.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 MORE REAL THAN LIFE! 11 novembre 2005
Par Humble - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I do not know why the book "Master of the Jinn" is called a Novel. It is definitely more that. It is a tale on the Infinite Mercy of God and I cried towards towards the end of the story! And yes like the characters in the story, my sleep was perturbed and I had strange dreams!

If the book is to be deemed a novel, then since reading Charles Dickens, I have not been kept so captivated and hooked on any other novel. It has definitely a great story line and wonderful real-life characters!

I will not be surprised if one day, the book is adapted to the big screen and emerge as an Hollywood blockbuster exceeding any episode of the Indiana Jones saga! The author has blended real events with fiction in a very original and incisive style at times reminiscent of Khalil Gibran!

Mystic sayings and pearls of wisdom abound and peppers the tale throughout the adventure!

On a personal note, the book answered one of my lingering doubts and I seize the occasion to thank the author for such inspired thoughts that permeate throughout the book!

I loved this book - it's a real tale in the classic sense, and an adventure story - yet the real journey is the spiritual one you take without even knowing you are taking it! A world of truths, a fascinating read, beautifully written, and the desert! What else could one ask for?

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a "Sufi" novel 27 juillet 2012
Par Michael B. McDonald - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat authentifié par Amazon
While this book is liberally sprinkled with quotes from true Sufi masters, and while the author clearly understands many aspects of Sufi tradition, I wish the book had been titled and marketed for what it is: A metaphysical fantasy that interweaves colorful allusions to Sufism without embracing what I, at least, understand to be at the real heart of the tradition. The Master of the book is basically Gandalf in Sufi drag. I have nothing against Gandalf, but Sufism, quite notably, does not rely on concepts of the supernatural for its mysticism. Rumi and Hafiz, for instance, were clearly not supernaturalists, but rather much more akin to Advaita non-dualists, or even Buddhists, interested in paring away everything that keeps us from perceiving the presence of the Friend (or Buddha nature)in our very midst. I far prefer Gandalf to the Master in this book, because considering and enjoying Gandalf does not require or lead me to ask questions like "In a world where Islam (and thus Sufism) is widely misunderstood, why is this author casting yet more obfuscation on these great traditions?" The Master is within, but you would never suspect that from this book (again, the hierarchical metaphysics of Tolkien are much more straightforward: Frodo may become a great hero, but he can never be a wizard, much less Gandalf). This book is indeed entertaining, so I was reluctant to give it less than 3 stars, but I wish it had been marketed for what it is, a kind of quasi-Muslim version of Da Vinci Code, distorting Muslim tradition to about the same degree that Brown's book distorts Christianity. Basically, the book achieves its effects by mixing Sufi ideas (ideas that become increasingly banal, taken out of their historic and cultural contexts) with motifs from 1,001 nights (especially the motif of Jinns sealed into vessels through the agency of Solomon's seal). Starting the book, I thought it had great promise, but I came to hate it by the end.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A thousand doors of wisdom unlocked 8 juin 2007
Par Tavis J. Hampton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Master of the Jinn is a life-giving tale of self-reflection, awakening, and ultimately, realization of Truth. Despite such spiritually lofty accomplishments, it is surprisingly approachable for the non-initiated and easily digested in a few sittings. Sufism, being a path that cannot be adequately explained through doctrines or discourses is here delivered in the most traditional form: through stories.

In doing so, Irving Karchmar extends the undying legacy of sufi storytelling that has guided humanity (and jinn) through darkness and into light since the dawn of civilization. After reading it, I feel as though a thousand doors of wisdom have opened, each leading to a thousand more.
