A Masterpiece of Modern Islamic Mysticism 8 February 2005
By Dawoud Kringle - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

MORE REAL THAN LIFE! 11 November 2005
By Humble - Published on
Format: Paperback
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!

Awe Inspiring Mystical Adventure 12 November 2004
By Poet's Life - Published on
Format: Paperback
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?

A journey on the path of the Heart! 8 November 2007
By Errin Davenport - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I rarely read fiction, and have never been this excited about a novel
before. If anyone is up to a beautiful and wonderful tale of Magick,
mystics and evocation my friend Irving has written such a masterpiece
"Master of the Jinn!" (Jinn is the root of the word Genie.) It is a
modern Sufi novel that will take you on a journey through the mystical
lands of the Arabian Nights.

Follow the pilgrims of the Soul on a spiritual quest of the path of
the heart, initiated by their master to find The True Temple of
Solomon, and unlock the greatest treasure ever known, (or unknown.)
This book has everything, mystery, visions, Magick, strange dreams, a lost city, bandits, Jinn, memories of the heart, other worldy storms, and so much more.

The insights are incredible! The universal message of Sufi speaks to
all people of all religions of all places in all times. Sufi way is to
Islam as Kabbalah is to Judaism, the esoteric insight of the deeper
truth belonging to no religion. The Pagan* way of the middle east, with
universal teachings and insights that reach across the worlds showing
the One and Only who is not defined by doctrine, dogma or man, but
revealed only in the heart of the seeker.

(* NB- I use "Pagan" in the Pythagorean sense, according to M. P. Hall, "Pythagoras was pagan because he was initiated into 14 of the worlds great mystery traditions, he refused to allow dogma or doctrine define what the divine may or may not be.")

I could not put this down!

Salaam and Shalom! Blessings and peace too all beings, especially those who are suffering and in need of mercy!

A thousand doors of wisdom unlocked 8 June 2007
By Tavis J. Hampton - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.
