PIR PRESS is an independent publisher dedicated to the sacred tradition of Sufism and to the Path of Love in its many forms. Sufism is a way to recognize the radiance of the Source of Love behind the surface of all things. This divine light is revealed also through the living metaphors of the other great wisdom traditions. In this spirit of universality, we offer books and music to aid and inspire seekers from all walks of life on their spiritual paths to the One Source.

From the Oral Tradition of the Glorious Messenger Muhammad
By Lex Hixon (Nur al-Jerrahi) and Fariha al-Jerrahi

ISBN: 1-879708-17-5
Price: $10
Trade paper, 163 pages

This book is a treasury of the wisdom of Sufism, which is the path of transmutation and self-realization, opened by the Prophet Muhammad, may Divine peace be upon him, over 1400 years ago. Through merging into Love, the Sufi disappears from self and reappears as Divine Love alone.

These 101 diamonds of wisdom, collected by the great mystic and knower Ibn 'Arabi in the 13th Century, are direct inspirations into the heart of the Prophet from the Source of Love and Wisdom. They take the reader on a spiritual journey to ever-deepening levels of intimate knowing, which culminate in the radiance of Paradise, surrounded by companions of Love.

This modern version of Ibn al-'Arabi's collection of oral traditions is a contemplative expansion by a contemporary Sufi teacher, Lex Hixon (Nur al-Jerrahi) and his disciple, Fariha al-Jerrahi. In fresh, poetic language, and with their own mystical passion, they bring these sacred diamonds of the Islamic tradition to the modern seeker on the spiritual path to enlightenment.

AN EMERALD EARTH: Cultivating A Natural Spirituality And Serving Creative Beauty In Our World
By Felicia Sharifa Norton and Muinuddin Charles Smith

ISBN 978-9-6152-3546-2
Price: $19.00
trade paper, 6 x 9, 192 pages

Drawing upon the universal teachings of the Sufi master Hazrat Inayat Khan on the "natural self" this book likens the unfolding of our being with the process of cultivating a field or garden. Unfolding of the natural self brings us to "An Emerald Earth" - a life in harmony and deep resonance with nature and Her elements, receptive to and serving the Creative Beauty that ever seeks to unfold.

"An Emerald Earth is an open invitation to those who are longing to rediscover the primordial harmony of the human soul and the natural world, both mirrors of each other and helpers to each other, both woven from the same cloth by the same Weaver. This wonderful book is constructed as an actual spiritual travel, using the stepping stones of meditation practices which guide the reader to experience how contemplation of the creation reveals human reality, and conversely how awakened humanity protects and elevates the creation to its own divine potential." - Shaykha Fariha Fatima al-Jerrahi
