“Everything is Love!”

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

I read of a Christian woman years ago who went on a forty day meditation retreat in a monastic cell. When she finally came out, all she could say is: “Everything is love!”

Surely those who open to faith and do beautiful wholesome works, for them the One Who is the Most Gracious will appoint Love.  –  Qur’an 19:96

A man once came to the Prophet (puh) and asked him about the hereafter. The Prophet asked him, “And what have you prepared for that time?” The man replied, “Nothing, except that I love Allah and I love you.” The Prophet (puh) answered him, “You are with the ones you love.”

I profess the religion of love,

Love is my religion and my faith.

My mother is love

My father is love

My prophet is love

My God is love

I am a child of love

I have come only to speak of love

– Jalaluddin Rumi

“…the guidance of Islam is the guidance of love. The innate, natural and ancient religion that is Islam is the religion of love. The Prophet (pbuh) came to guide us to love and to make clear the love that is at the core of all religion. Our purpose as human beings is to consciously manifest Allah’s love in our lives.”

– from Love in Islam, a Khutbah (Sermon) by Mahmoud Mostafa

Ya Haqq!

    Salaam, Darvish…

    It’s fancy to hear that a muslim would write “love is at the core of all religion”. I found it’s quite rare; most are more concerned about exclusive right and wrong.

    May we live in love–not in fanaticism :D

    Salaam Dear Friends:

    Thank you for the kind comments :) Indeed, everything is love, and to see this clearly it only takes getting out of our own way, a most difficult task.

    Ya Haqq!
