In Sacred Spaces, Pakistani artist and educator Samina Quraeshi provides a locally inflected vision of Islam in South Asia that is enriched by art and by a woman's perspective on the diversity of Islamic expressions of faith. The book reveals the deeply spiritual nature of major centres of Sufism in Pakistan and northern India. The illuminating essays by Ali S. Asani, Carl W. Ernst, and Kamil Khan Mumtaz provide a scholarly context to the journey, discussing aspects of Sufi music and dance, the role of Sufism in current South Asian culture and politics, and the spiritual geometry of Sufi architecture. Along her meandering path to the shrines of Sufi saints in the Indus Valley, Quraeshi relies on memory, storytelling, and image-making to create an imaginative personal history and a rich body of photographs and works of art that reflect the seeking heart of the Sufi Way. Her vision builds on the centuries-old sufi tradition of conveying mystical messages of love, freedom, and tolerance that offer the promise of building cultural and spiritual bridges between people of different faiths.
