Love Is My Only Companion

Love is my only Companion
It is my beginning, me existence, and my end.
My Soul calls to me from within:
O Negligent on the Path of Love, rescue me!

-Rumi

As we revel in this day celebrating all the beauty and joys of love — Let us not forget to celebrate the Greatest Love of all — that which we have for Our Creator and the Eternal Love that he holds for us.

Relationships in this Dunya inevitably come with their ups and downs… and we pray that our friends and loved ones do not let us down.  But when you attach your heart to Allah, the True Friend,  He will never let it fall.   When you open the door of your heart to God, he will then open the gates of infinite love for you.

You want a fire? Take it easy,
this passion is incandescent.
Touch it, it will light your own.

-Ibn Arabi

Happy Valentines Day.

-Shams Al-Ghayeb
