Even if sorrow conquers the horizons, Someone held by love will not be sad. A single speck of love that danced with love will conquer the world and the next. Shams-e-Tabrizi

Quote of the Day – On Sufism

Shams Tabrii, quote, inspiration, spiritual, zanzibar

Whatever mistakes I may make, You are enough as my balance, Even if my life is ruined, You are enough as my goal. I know that when I am ready to leave this world, they will ask, “What have you done?” As my answer, “You” will be enough. Shams-e-Tabrizi

How is Islam a religion of Love?

“The true Sufi is such that even when he is unjustly accused, attacked, and condemned from all sides, he patiently endures, uttering not a single bad word about any of his critics. A sufi never apportions blame. How can there be opponents or rivals or even “others” when there is no “Self” in the first place? How can there be anyone to blame when there is only one?”

The Sufi mystic & Islamic scholar Jalal ad-Din Rumi – Rule#30 from the book 40 Rules of love by Elif Shafak

And what is Sufism? It is a concept in Islam, defined by scholars as the inner, mystical, dimension of Islam. It is purely based on the tenets from Islam, and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The religion based on Peace and Love.

And what about terrorism? Terror exists, since Adam & Eve gave birth to their first two sons; “for those of you who know the story” and for those of you who don’t; Terror existed as soon as human beings became concerned about the “Self”. Religions, were sent to help us live in harmony, together, but humans who grew to become selfish, greedy and fall in trouble, tend to use anything to twist things and just put the blame on something. And what better than to blame religion?

Islam calls for love, for peace, for unity, for harmony, to leave judgments only to God, for us to be ethical, to have respect for one another, to work on building a pure heart… so how can it contradict itself and call for terror? Terrorism has been misused, misinterpreted, and labeled to Islam. But terrorism has no religion. And those who do it in the name of religion, are only ignorant’s trying to cover themselves up.

We were born in love, we were born with love, we were born for love. We shall die in love, we shall die spreading love, and we shall win with love. Don’t let the media mislead you, read, learn and lead yourself.
