A book of poems on faith – from the personal journey of seeking truth to love and societal issues – by a humble, struggling soul going under the pseudonym of The Vespa Rider. He weaves complex internal and external issues faced by a young Muslim with simple words. I love that he includes verses from the Qur’an in his poetry too. Soulful and straight from the heart, Syafakallah is a book of poems fellow Muslims can resonate with. An inspiring and commendable piece of work reminding me that words can heal.
