Product description


"This fascinating autobiographical travelogue . . . presents a more positive view of Islam than currently represented in the Western press. . . . The Spy of the Heart is a simply told, but an intensely gripping story of study and later initiation into Sufism."  —Professor Leonard Lewisohn, PhD, Islamic Studies Department, University of Exeter

"The Spy of the Heart is better than most bestsellers about Afghanistan. It is not only a must-read for researchers and journalists . . . and the students of modern Afghan history and politics, but also the Afghans themselves." —Daily Outlook Afghanistan (March 27, 2011)

About the Author

Robert Abdul Hayy Darr is an American Muslim who has translated and published works of Afghan and Persian literature into English, such as the poetry of Raz Mohammed Zaray and Ustad Khalilullah Khalili, and the book The Garden of Mystery.
