On his “journey from the dreams of the jinn to the love of the truth” Jaafar Ibrahim Sayyed al-Rawi is guided by his motto, “let life be filled with holy madness to the last breath.” A victim of wrong decisions he loses everything, family and wealth. He goes from a life of comfort with a promising future guaranteed by his wealthy grandfather, Sayyed al-Rawi, to the life of a pauper. Alone and destitute, he remains unbroken in his quest to fight the Waqf to recuperate his inheritance. He faces his tribulations with surprising stoicism and hope, sustained by a strong conviction that he is “a man with a mission” and a political program to bring social justice to his people.
