From the organizers:

“Power of the Word IV

Divine Wisdom: The Sufi Way

The fourth edition of the project Power of the Word culminates in an installation in the Islamic East Gallery that explores Sufism, Islamic mysticism.

My heart has become capable of every form:
it is a pasture for gazelles and a convent for Christian monks,
And a temple for idols and the pilgrim’s Kaaba
and the tables of the Torah and the book of the Quran.
I follow the religion of Love:
whatever way Love’s camels take,
that is my religion and my faith.

This poem comes from The Interpreter of Desires (Tarjumān al-Ashwāq) by the Sufi master Ibn ʿArabī (Murcia 1165 – Damascus 1240).  His words transmit the universal message of love of Sufism, the mystical heart of Islam. The Sufi spiritual path is practiced by Muslim men and women around the world, and explored here through five key themes: Wisdom, Unity, Love, Path and Plenitude. The works on display in the gallery originate from India to Portugal, including from Afghanistan, Iran, Syria, Egypt and Turkey.”
