ninety-nine names

Apropros the visit of Indonesian poet, Rendra, here is a link to an interesting poetry site The name refers to the ninety-nine Arabic names for God, Allah being the one most of us are familiar with. The site has a pretty simple layout, but you can sense the care and devotion put into it. The beautiful sufi texts are a collaboration between Indonesian sufi legend Mustofa Bisri and Australian Geoff Fox and come in both English and Indonesian. They should move even the most stone-hearted among us.
