The Sufi Message of Love, Harmony, and Beauty

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“The Sufi sees the truth in every religion. If invited to offer prayers in a Christian church, the Sufi is ready to do so. The Sufi will go the synagogue and pray as the Jews do; will offer Salat with Muslims; and in the Hindu temple worships the same God. Yet the Sufi’s true temple, the true mosque, is the human heart, in which the divine Beloved lives. Sufism is a religion if one wants to learn religion from it; it is a philosophy if one wants to learn wisdom from it; it is mysticism if one wants to be guided by it in the unfoldment of the soul; and yet it is beyond all these things. It is the light of life which is the sustenance of every soul. It is the Message of Love, Harmony, and Beauty.”

– Hazrat Inayat Khan

Ya Haqq!

    The temple is the human heart. The altar is the human mind. What a beautiful post :)

    Thank you all for the comments :) Indeed, the heart, not the lump of flesh in the chest, but the heart of a person which is life itself, is the temple and the mind is the alter; and the love it manifests is the basis of all harmony and beauty.

    Ya Haqq!
