Wali & Ariënne van der Zwan: The Seal of the Message. Meditations on the Prayer Khatum of Hazrat Inayat Khan.
Following the different lines and parts of Khatum, this booklet offers an explanation of the deeper meaning behind the words, drawing in Inayat Khan's Sufi and Indian background and offering openings for an application of these words in daily life. In the words of Inayat Khan:
The prayers used in the Universal Worship, Saum, Salat, and Khatum, have
an inner significance besides their outer meaning. These prayers are not only
praise to God or thanksgiving, but they are to draw us nearer, closer to the
divine Being; this is the mission of the Sufi Message today.
