- About the Author
Desiring Light is Ameera Aslam's first collection of poetry & prose. They are about traversing the spiritual path in modern times, grief, hope and God's Overflowing Mercy.
“Wonderfully penned, from deep inside the heart. Poetry has always been a great outlet to express ideas, interpret feelings and being absolutely honest at the best way it can be. To keep spiritual seeking relevant is a challenge for this generation. Perhaps many could connect to whatever Ameera is writing.”
—Ustaz Zahid Zin, Scholar/Community Leader, Muslim Youth Forum/Diary Tok Kadi, Singapore
