On Service

Night after night, there was a certain warmth that drew us to seek each other’s company here.  Tucked away to one side of the tea house, there lay an unassuming bookshelf that carried lessons for a lifetime.  This, perhaps, was a window into the hearts that served us so well here.

  5. Zumrutkutu, thank you for your enthusiasm. Works of Imam Ebu Hanife, Ibn Arabi, Ibn Hazim…and yes, Shaykh Abdel Kadir Geylani (may God sanctify their souls) certainly lay at the root of the goodness we received in this tea house. You should visit them when in Uskudar.
