Every other action is a one way relationship from Allah to you, except…
Allah shows you mercy , but you can’t show Him mercy
Allah forgives you, but you can’t forgive Him
Allah loves you , and you can love Him back
And interestingly, He has left you that choice
Yet we seek perfect love from people and
We are saddened when we don’t get it back
Love the One who created Love and you out of that love
Everyone in heavens and earth will by default love you
Seek Love from the right place !
( inspired from sheikh Ibn Arabi)
Every sinner has a heart worthy of being loved
Does every healer have a heart that’s ready to love!
Once a plain land made a pact with a farmer, that if you remove the thorns and the weeds from me i shall turn out to be a fruitful land. The farmer agreed and removed all the unwanted obstacles from it, in no time the land turned out to be a lush green garden with flowers of all kinds and fruits of all types.
People from near and far came just to have a look at this great garden and went back satiated in their eyes and stomach with the great hospitality of the farmer. It didnt take long for the news to reach the Mighty King, and He personally came to visit the beautiful garden one day. The farmer welcomed Him with all his warmth and before departing the King praised the farmer for creating such a beautiful garden.
In response , the farmer said to the King with humility “My Lord, the land, the garden and this poor me, all belong to You. I am just a mere care taker and a subject in your kingdom. “The King was impressed with the farmer’s words and became a regular Visitor to the garden and made the farmer among the best of His friends
The Land in the story refers to your heart, the thorns to the malice in the heart, the King to the Creator Himself and the farmer is none other than you.
I Leave the choice to you. Who do you want to become
A mere land owner, a successful farmer or a friend to The Mighty King Himself ..
(roughly translated from Taptuk Emre’s story in Yunus Emre Series– a must watch for the seekers)
(125) Yunus Emre – Season 2 Episode 16 – YouTube
“I did not come to fight,
my work is with love.
A heart makes a good home for a friend,
I’ve come to mend hearts.”
The Best Way To Manage Anger Is
To Not Get Angry At The First Place!
On the purification of your heart,than
The beautification of your words.
The presence of your heart , than
The eloquence of your tongue.
The brokenness of your state, than
The loudness of your voice .
Pray Well. For others and yourself!
Recently happened to meet one of my old friends who was in an enviable position in a big firm not so long ago . Realised, he was at the height of despair now after having lost his job for more than a year, and his own friends in the previous company was blocking him from getting other jobs.
His words were painful to my ears “I am planning to quit everything”.
Please do remember folks, we are living in a very fragile world where things are changing overnight and not everyone has the faith to endure these challenges.
If you can’t support or pray for X colleagues or fellow beings, at least do not harm them. If your simple YES can land them a job in a reference call, give a BIG YES and support them with at least words of encouragement, if not deeds.
I have a simple message to all of you who are in similar situations, or who might be in future
Your Determination is always two letters bigger than your Termination! and as the Qur’an states “God does not burden a soul beyond it’s capacity” and more than anything “Do not despair of the Mercy of Your Lord“
Hold on you strong one..
For bigger goals, you are chosen!
Why do you crawl in mud
When you can fly sky high
Sins have burned my wings
Now I know not how to fly..
Who taught you the first flight, try
The Prophet, from whome I am so shy
Fall at His Feet, He’il take you above the sky
Lest you forget, never you give up the try,
My Master, teach me how to fly..
Though I have no wings, To You I hope to fly.
Do not seek love from people
But from the One who created them.
