Shades of Islam, Poems for a New Century

Shades of Islam is a dazzling and moving collection of poetry that addresses faith, love, politics and Islam in the twenty-first century.

“I find [the poems] deeply moving and beautifully felt and written with simplicity and a profundity that is wholly disarming.” – Harold Schweizer, Professor of English, Bucknell University.

“The poems of Rafey Habib offer a window onto the sensibility of a modern American Muslim, with unclinching honesty and richly informed compassion. The great humanistic tradition of poetry known in Arabic and other Eastern languages here finds a contemporary English voice, which will be recognized like a lost friend who has unaccountably been rediscovered.” – Carl W. Ernst, William R. Kenan, Junior, Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies, UNC-Chapel Hill.
