Ali's Prayer Rug



Ali is the son of an alcoholic father. Just a few days before his 10th birthday, he sees his grandmother in a dream. This elderly woman, who passed away months ago, announces to him that she has chosen a ‘magnificent’ gift for his birthday and if he uses it, he will fly to Heaven. This gift is an ‘embroidered’ prayer rug hidden under an old cupboard. When Ali finds it, he intends to use it, that is, to pray, but his beloved person stands in his way… It’s his father, who will scold him at every opportunity, even beat him severely. Ali’s only refuge is the prayers he makes in tears. And there is also their downstairs neighbor, Hakkı Dede, who helps him, resisting against Ali’s father together… Prophet Muhammad described prayer as one of the ‘three things he loved most’ in the world. He described it as the ‘light of his eyes’ or the ‘pillar of religion.’ In another saying, he referred to it as the ‘ascension of believers.’ Like the journey experienced during the Ascension, it is a ‘Burak’ that transports one beyond horizons, even to the heavens… With the book in your hands, Cüneyd Suavi offers you ‘views of paradise’ from that wonderful journey. To all children and to everyone whose heart remains in ‘childlike purity’…
