Ibn Hazm's The Ring of the Dove

I've gotten an inquiry about where the previous post's poem was from and decided to post the link to the full online text. I recommend anyone - Non-Muslim and especially Muslim - to check out because its one of the most beautiful poetic verses I've read.

Also, its a very hard book to find with Amazon reporting it currently being either unavailable or 1 or 2 copies around.

If anyone is interested in more works by Ibn Hazm, its worth checking out his Al-Akhlâq wa’l-Siyar (Morals and Behaviour)

I actually wrote a poem a while back that you may want to check out. Its a fictional interaction between Ibn Hazm and Andrew Marvell in my TUESDAY, MAY 02, 2006 post.

Salaam,

I don't think I've ever seen this book before. It sounds interesting and I Loved the poem you posted below ("Falling In Love on First Sight").

Have you read "The Garden of Truth" by Seyyed Hossein Nasr?

Haven't read that but have read some of his other works.
