Say Love’s names
And die for Love’s kiss,
Behind the veil,
His love is tested and teased,
Through snow, rain and hail
Love feeds his heart and breaks his will,
However far the wandering trail
Walks the dervish while the world sleeps,
Exalted is Love in every forest, hill and vale
With Ninety-Nine written on his lips.
TGIF. Well, thank God it is Friday, sunshine. And thank God for you and for me, for our cat named Moses and thank God for our shaykhs (masters). Thank God for our Nabi Muhammad Sayyidina Miftahur Rahman wa Miftahul Jannah (our Prophet Muhammad, Master Key to Divinely Mercy and the Heavenly Gardens). And of course most importantly… thank God for God Himself, Allahu Rahman (God Most Compassionate) and Allahu Rahim (God Most Merciful). Even for a sinner, there is many thankings to do today. He he he. These are just 2 divine names from ninety-nine that is revealed to mankind. May we be blessed to learn and benefit from more of God’s Divine Names, in their infinitely subtle depths of meaning.
Come on, sunshine… The dervish is just a little further up the path. We must follow the perfume of love that beckons us to his saintly footsteps!
Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way
