“A Symphony of Praise…” – Wisdom of Tierno Bokar, Tijani Sage

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“The rainbow owes its beauty to the variety of its colors. In the same way, we consider the voices of various believers that rise up from all parts of the earth as a symphony of praise addressing God. We deplore the scorn that certain religious people heap on the form of divine things, leading them to reject their neighbor’s hymn because it contrasts with theirs. To fight this, whatever be the religion or the congregation to which you are affiliated, meditate at length on this verse, ‘The creation of the heavens and the earth, and the diversity of your languages and of your colors are many wonders for those who reflect’ (Quran 30:22)”.

Tierno Bokar, Tijani sage of early 20th century French Sudan (present-day Mali)
