Salaam and Greetings of Peace:
To follow the path of Love is indeed to be a servant, unto God and to your fellow creatures, so that they may also find their way. Thus came the word of God’s Mercy into the heart of Dhu’l-Nun the Egyptian, as was related long ago…
“And God said unto His servant: ‘If there comes to you one sick through separation from Me, heal him, or a fugitive from Me, seek him out, or afraid of Me, then reassure him, or wishing union with Me, then show him favor, or seeking to approach Me, encourage him, or despairing of My grace, help him, or hoping for My loving-kindness, give him good news, or with right thoughts of Me, then welcome him, or seeking to know My attributes, guide him.
And if one who is injured asks help of you, give it to him, but if he is doing evil in despite of loving-kindness, then remonstrate him, or if he is forgetful of it, then remind him, and if he goes astray, search for him. For you have I predestined for My work, and you have I appointed for My service.”
