Kurzbeschreibung

A mystical adventure tale on the Sufi path of Love.
Here is a tale set on the Path of the Heart, a mystical adventure wherein a modern-day Sufi master sends seven companions on a quest for the original Ring of Power, and the greatest treasure of the ancient world - King Solomon's ring. It is the very same seal ring of a hundred legends, given to King Solomon by God to command the Jinn, those terrifying demons of living fire.
By sea and across deserts, they are led by a strange faqir guide of many names. Through the mightiest of storms and into a lost city, the travelers come at last to the gateway of the Subtle Realm, the land of the Jinn.
But the quest has a strange effect on everyone chosen to go: visions enter their dreams, remembrances and tears fill their hearts, and mysteries abound; unearthly storms and unending night, the Gates of Heaven open
at last, and invincible demons of smokeless fire.
It is a tale woven of ancient legends found in the Old Testament, the Talmud, and the Koran, and although it is set in the present, the search for the truth of the ring leads them into a circle of ageless destiny, where the companions discover not only the fate of the Jinn, but also the Path of Love and the infinite Mercy of God.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Plot Driven Adventure Tale of Mysticism 30. Januar 2017
Von Just An Ordinary Gal - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This novel starts by presenting a linked stories, like a set of Russian nesting dolls, until finally settling on an adventure yarn that occupies the rest of the novel. In tone, it reminds me of Tibetan Tale of Love and Magic by Alexandra David-Neel.

Other readers have compared Master of the Jinn to the DaVinci Code for its loose relationship to religioustenets(Sufism,in this case). Epigraphs and other quotations from Sufi mystics and philosophers are used throughout and may offer a deeper layer of meaning. Even so, fiction gives the author poetic license to deviate from strict interpretation of religious screed and creatively embroider, for that is the point of writing imaginatively. Otherwise the tale might be portrayed as an ethonographic folk tale. The same is true of Alexandra David-Neel’s account of the Bon monks. In other books, she writes of her travels in Tibet but in that tome she takes readers on an imaginative journey, as Karchmar does here.

I found the beginning of Master of the Jinn slow. Back-stories are lures to the main tale. Even once embarked on the main journey,there are side-alleys, like the maze of streets in a Casbah, each full of its own secrets. Soon I eagerly followed the soulful Sufi group on their mission to the land the jinn and their deliverance from it.

The story is more plot-driven than character-driven. When I closed the book, I was glad for the resolution of the quest; I did not feel I was reluctantly leaving a group of friends as I turned the last page.

Descriptions of the region and customs seem realistic. Initially, I was disconcerted because I could not tell in what era the storyoccurring. Use of Jeep later indicates the main action is contemporary. But the language of Ishaq the scribe uses anachronistic constructions as “verily.”

The novel works on a number of levels -- as a sociological description of a Sufi group, a region, and culture; as a partial depiction of religious lore that spans a few faiths; an adventure tale; the polished entertaining presentation of a scholar and creative writer, and as a set of teachings. I myself had an unexpected epiphany after reading one section of the story.

Disclosure: Irving Karchmar has been a Facebook friend for some time. Initially, I returned a free copy because I was stalled in the early part of the book. One evening I wanted to read something representative of his calmness, so that was when I started this book. I was not disappoined.

This story is magical and mysterious. I have the hard copy book and the audio book. Listening to the mesmerizing voice of Karchmar as he takes you through a mystical soulful journey draws you into the story and you become part of the suspenseful journey. You can't stop listening because you know when you do, you will be drawn back to reality. Karchmar definitely takes you on a journey that you will not soon forget. I highly recommend the audio book as it keeps you suspended in time, in an adventure that you wish would not end.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Jinn Master 30. Juli 2015
Von S. Cranow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
An entertaining novel that is a quick enjoyable read. however, I would not venture that this will become some time honored classic. None the less it does offer a window into thee mystical world of Sufi Islam. interspersed through out the book are bits of wisdom and quotes from various sufi masters. The way of Allah is love and not only is Islam holy but so is Judaism and Christianity. What we have here is more than a tale of Sufi mystics and jinn haunting humans, we have here ann exercise of individuals from different backgrounds working together for the common good.

The story starts off sort of in the middle before going into the beginning. Ishaq is wandering the Sahara desert after being separated from his travel companions.. Hot and weary he wanders the desert in search of water, he becomes aware that even the animals pray to god.

Interestingly enough the story begins in somewhat modern Jerusalem, more precisely in the old city. A khaniqa or Sufi school is established in Jerusalem, and Ishaq goes searching for his teacher. In the market the Master Hayd is searching for a special coffee for some very special guests that will be attending the khaniqa that evening. On the way back from shopping Ishaq learns some spiritual lessons from a beggar in Jerusalem's streets.

That evening the Khaniqa holds a feast and three distinguished guests appear, three Israeli Jews. Dr. Shlomo Freeman is a professor at Hebrew University and is a former student of Master Hayd. Freeman's daughter Rebecca comes and so does a mossad officer who is involved with something archaeological.  THe Mossd agent was in the Sahara on some mission when he stumbled onto a cave with a corpse holding a cylinder .  The cylinder is written in ancient Hebrew or more appropriately called the Canaanite scripts. First he goes to Dr. Freeman and then Dr. Freeman goes to the Sufi master.

This of course leads to an adventure in the desert for Ishaq, two other students and the Israelis. Guided by the beggar from Jerusalem they take a ship to Algiers and embark with the aid of the Tuareg and Berbers to a place buried in the sands of the Sahara. The city of the Jinn. What follows is not much of an adventure but rather a tale of redemption for all of mankind and the Jinn if they want to take it.

The strong points of this story is that it shows Jews and Muslims working together and learning from each other. Combining the lore from both religions they are able to solve mysteries and problems. It shows venerated rabbis giing prophecy pertinent to Islamic issues. Both paths are holy. Yet I would debate a few facts mentioned in the book. Number one the Shamir was not a stone, according to Jewish lore , but rather it was a worm that ate stones in order to build the Jewish temple as steel and Iron could not be used. Tadmor is in Syria not North Africa. I am not sure King Solomon built the city for Queen Sheba and if he did would it not bee located in Arabia.

I have long known or suspected that people beside Muslims can join Sufi orders and be intiated with a symbolic conveserion. Why all the Israeli Jews involved end up converting instead of keeping their religion smacks of some propaganda , like promoting sufism.  Too bad a Rabbi could not have accompanied these guys and in addition to converting Jews to Sufism there could have been some Muslims converting to Judaism
3.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Read but Bogs Down Toward the End 18. Juni 2012
Von Eric W. Lehmann - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book starts out good. It's got a delightful Arabian Nights vibe as it tells a tale of Sufis and sympathetic lay people on a quest to find King Soloman's ring. According to myth it's by this ring which he commanded the Jinn to build the Temple. Some compare this book to the Da Vinci Code, but to some degree that's unfair. Most of this book is better than The Da Vinci Code. The difficulty comes in two parts: The first are knowledge and cultural leaps required for the Western Reader. Most don't know what a Sufi or a Jinn is. But even if they did there's a lot in the book understandable only by a Sufi, a native born Moslem, or someone with a Masters in Islamic studies. That's not too bad. The second is that towards the end the book breaks down into long conversations about the nature of Allah and his relationship to men and Jinn, and slavish testimony on how great Allah is. It's good stuff if you're an Islamic scholar interested in Sufism, probably old hat to an actual Sufi, and a let down for everyone else. I think the author could have done better telling the tale while hinting at or describing symbolically certain subjects as he did at the start. Finally, as another reveiwer mentions, this book is definitely better than most of what's out there on Sufism. Most of it is at best collections of sayings and stories (some funny and wise, most really obscure) and deadly dull histories.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A journey on the path of the Heart! 7. November 2007
Von Errin Davenport - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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!
