By Ameera Aslam, Bilal Books, paperback, 132 pages
Desiring Light is Ameera Aslam's first collection of poetry & prose. They are about traversing the spiritual path in modern times, grief, hope and God's Overflowing Mercy.
"How can we love the Divine?" was a question she asked at 18, and found the answer a decade later. This book documents that journey.
"The outward tranquillity of those who are seeking a spiritual path is something that many wish they could also embrace. But this tranquillity does not tell the inner struggles that take place because the spiritual seekers do their work on the inside. Ameera Aslam's poems reflect this journey." - Humera Khan
