myislamislove: love rumi (love rumi)
 My love is not dependent on a subject. My love depends on my mood, my state of consciousness. If the others change, they transform; if a friend becomes the enemy, it doesn't matter because my love never depended on the other person. My love is the state of my being. I love you and I.

 "May God steal from you all that steals you from God."

 Whoever builds his faith exclusively on demonstrative proofs and deductive arguments, builds a faith on which it is impossible to rely. For he is affected by the negativities of constant objections. Certainty(al-yaqin) does not derive from the evidences of the mind but pours out from the depths of the heart.

~Ibn Arabi~

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. ~Rumi~

A calamity that makes you turn to Allah is better for you
then a blessing which makes you forget the remembrance of Allah.

  Ibn Taymiyyah
myislamislove: sufi woman (Default)
“The word “shams" (sun) is feminine, and “qamar" (moon) is masculine. The sun burns itself out to give light and life to everything around, and the moon is muneer, meaning it reflects the light. Within itself it has no light; it radiates the brilliance of the sun. So when we shine as men, the implication is that we are reflecting the glorious light of our women.

 “We need more light about each other.
Light creates understanding,
understanding creates love,
love creates patience,
and patience creates unity.”

They accused me of doing the Jihad (Struggle), which I fully agree with.
But the weapons through which I am doing it are science and piety. The Lord by excellence is my witness.”

The anamnesis, or recollection, of Sophia eaterna, will start from an intuition set forth with the utmost clarity in our authors, namely, that the Feminine is not opposed to the Masculine as the 'patiens' to the 'agens', but encompasses and combines the two aspects, receptive and active, whereas the Masculine possesses only one of the two. This intuition is clearly expressed in a distich of Jalaluddin Rumi:

 
Woman is a beam of the divine Light.
 
She is not the being whom sensual desire 
takes as its object.
 
She is Creator, it should be said.
 
She is not a Creature.

 

And this sophianic intuition is perfectly in keeping with that of the extreme Shi'ites, the Ismailians and Nusayris, who in the person of Fatima, considered as "Virgin-Mother" giving birth to the line of the Holy Imams, perceive a theophany of Sophia aeterna, the mediatrix of Creation celebrated in the books of wisdom, and attach to her name the demiurgic qualification in the masculine (Fatima fatir) : Fatima-Creator.

 God is your mirror in which you contemplate yourself
and you are His mirror in which He contemplates His Divine Attributes.

 The Real Beloved is the very self of love and of the lover. There is nothing prior to love. Love is the first of the first. Love is the last of the last… After everything has come to nought and perished, love still endures and will endure forever. It is eternal, and will be so for all eternity. Love is without end.
 
Love is an ocean. Such an ocean it is, that this sea has no bottom, no shore, no beginning, no end, and no limits…
 
O Lord!
 
Letting Your guidance escort us, offer us with Your mighty hand the drinking-glass of love, so that our hearts may never for even one moment be parted from Your love… Through divine love, Hell becomes Paradise for the lover. Love turns the fire into light. When the lover enters Paradise, he burns with your love till Paradise is like Hell for him…
 
O dervish calling yourself a lover!
 
With His love do you not whirl around? With His love do you not travel the eighteen thousand worlds? Then take to the floor and whirl with His love, address Him with love, call on Him with love!…
 
The eyes of the dervish who is a true lover see nothing but God; his heart knows nothing but Him. God is the eye by which he sees, the hand with which he holds, and the tongue with which he speaks.
 
The dervish does not stop at the names, but discovers the Named and surrenders to his Beloved. His sole concern is God, his pain is God, his remedy is God, his cure is God, his cause is God. Were he not in love, he would pass away. If his heart should be devoid of love for as much as a single moment, the dervish could not stay alive. Love is the dervish’s life, his health, his comfort. Love ruins the dervish, makes him weep; union makes him flourish, brings him to life. The dervish finds separation in union, union in separation.
 
In heaven—love; on earth—love; to the right—love; to the left—love; everywhere and everything is love. Love is He; the Lover He; the Beloved is He; the Loved One is He; the Dear One is He; the Friend is He. The knight of love will reach his beloved early or late. He who gives his life for love will sooner or later find his dearest. Love Him, that He may love you too. Unless He loves, you cannot love Him; unless He is seeking you, you cannot seek Him. Love your beloved, for the beloved is He; love your own true self, for your own true self is also He.

 "There are in fact three grand revelations: the cosmos, the human state, and religions — all three of which Islam sees as "books." There is, first of all, the cosmic book to be read and deciphered. Then there is the inner book of the soul, which we carry within ourselves. And finally, there are the sacred scriptures which have been sent by God through His Mercy to guide humanity throughout the ages and which are the foundations of various religions and keys for reading the other two books, that of the cosmos and that of the soul."

 Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open?
Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking.
Live in silence.
