Praise be to Allah

Earth, water, fire and air,
All work harmoniously.
For thee they always food prepare,
Thou shouldst not eat unthankfully.
For how each day the sun shines and serves,
All praise from thee Allah deserves.

Beloved ones of God,

you may belong to any race, cast, creed, or nation, still you are all impartially beloved by God. You may be a believer or an unbeliever in the supreme Being, but He cares not. His mercy and grace flow through all His powers, without distinction of friend or foe.
‘Every leaf of tree, Allah’s praise displays,
Only the pious mind can hear their sacred lays.’
The sun, moon, and stars give light; the timely change of seasons promotes health and cheerfulness; the rain grows corn, fruits, and flowers; and the alternation of day and night provides the opportunity for work and rest.
If you study your own body, you will find its mechanism to be the original model of the artificial mechanism of the world. Art and science fail if compared with that of His nature. The ear, eyes, and all other organs, how perfectly they are adapted in shape and mechanism to the purpose which they must serve! How liberally the needs of life, water, air, and food, are supplied; even milk is prepared in the mother’s breast for the unborn infant.

Should we not appreciate the liberality of the Creator, and thank Him each moment with all humility and gratitude?

Praise be to Allah, the worship of whom is the means of drawing closer to Him, and the giving of thanks to whom involves an increase of benefits. Every breath which is inhaled prolongs life, and when exhaled it quickens the frame. In every breath, therefore, two blessings are contained, and for every blessing a separate thanksgiving is due’ (Sa’di).
He has fashioned and molded you after His own image, and made you Ashrá f al-Makhluá t, the highest of all beings and the pride of the universe, having given you command over all other beings of both worlds.

As is said in the Qur’an,

‘Do you not see that Allah has subjected all things on earth to you?’ And at the same time He has given you, by His grace, the attributes of humanity: kindness, gratitude, faithfulness, justice, modesty, piety, sympathy, reverence, bravery, patience, love, knowledge, and wisdom. This is an open proof of your being the real object of creation and the most beloved of God.’

Presence in Shrine or Tomb

Mohammad CalligraphyThe personality(soul) of Auliya after being enlightened By Noor(Light) of Mohammad(Peace be upon him) becomes everlasting for ever,thats why after demise of Auliya Allah(Friends of God) the memorial deed and heroic deed comes out from their tombs by means of Noor of Mohammad(peace be upon him),hence,the prayers on the shrine of Auliya Karaam is like a prayers in front of Allah or Noor Mohammad(peace be upon him).The people who are unknown from all these realities,they folly says that all these are Bidaat,(heresy),Shirk(Politheism).As well as the people who comes on Mazaraat(Shrines) they also dose not know from this reality because of this every person sould gain the knowledge and to understand in betterway.

At the begining Allah ordered the Angels to bow down(prostrate)in front of Adam(peace be upon him).Actualy this Sajda(Prostration) was for Noor of Mohammad(peace be upon him)(other wise how Allah order to angels to bow down except Allah),Allah ordered to all believers to respect this Noor of Mohammad beauty of Allah.

Through Saintliness the Noor of Mohammad(peace be upon him)be manifest from Mohammad(peace be upon him)in Auliya Karaam(Friends of Allah),the Noor of Mohammad(peace be upon him) is respected in the the veil of Auliya karaam are like Kaaba,they are only like veil,the homage and the veil of Auliya reaches out to Noor-e-Mohammad (peace be upon him) this is right and this is the sunnah(Method) of Angels,there is no doubt or suspecious of Polithesim!Hence ,the obesiance,reverence and attendance in shrine is true,even prayers,hymns and supplications are right and correct because prayer,hymn,supplication also imagines in front of Allah’s Noor (Light),there is no any legality regarding polytheism!

 

It is necessary for human being to know and get the identification of Allah (Maarfiat-e-Haque) its is called “Nearness of Allah”.it is the purpose of human being.but it is so difficult you can say imposible to get nearness of Allah with out Spiritual Mentor(Murshid) Master,it is also so sad that true Spiritual Mentor is very rare to available now a days,beacuase unknown persons from Allah’s Identification also are decorating their throne in this fields,every person first know and identify the Mentor in all angle,because complete Vali(Friend of God) or Mentor reaches out the seeker to the designation,as it is necessary to remember that be cautious or be carefull from such a independent Mentors.

Pagan-Worshiper Of Love-and Devotional Sufi Song

I have come to You with all my yearnings,
all my longings writ large on my face
What can I ask from You,

You perceive it all by Yourself..

Ya Maula.. Maula Maula Mere Maula..
Maulaaaaa…
O Lord, my Lord, my Master..
my Friend…
Creases and fissures line my forehead,
(so many worries, but also the destiny is writ on the forehead)
Repair my fate, O Lord, O Friend.
At Your Door of Mercy I bow,
I obliterate myself to emerge anew
(I surrender to You, in this complete surrender my old-self dies,
from this surrender I emerge anew)
Repair my fate, O Lord, my Friend
Whoever came to Your Door, with their head bowed in deep surrender
Was seen by everyone bewildered, dancing in ecstasy

Whoever came to You thirsty,
went back home (satiated) with a flowing river
Drenched in showers of divine light, they swam out
Maula Maula Maulaa Mere Maula…
Maula Maula Maulaa Maula…
O Lord, my Lord, Master, my Master
Friend, my Friend
Creases and fissures line my forehead,
Repair my fate, O Lord, O Beloved
A fragrance emanated from somewhere
I wandered lost in its search
A mesmerizing epiphany
And I gaped in astonished wonder

It was only when I came to Your street, Your path,
that the truth dawned upon me
The fragrance was but within me,
and it was You who introduced it to me
I certainly know how to break into pieces and scatter
But I do not know how to pray to You in the correct manner
Let me remain immersed in adoration of You,
I will not leave this state.
If You reject me now, how will I ever recover!
Maula Maula Maulaa Mere Maula..
 
Dared I to proudly chart out so many desires,
Dreamt I innumerable dreams and struggled so much
But when You came face-to-face with me,
I could not meet Your eyes
In a precious moment with my head bowed in utter surrender to You
What have I not found?!
(I had nothing else left to find as I found You)
My Lord, my Lord, My Beloved
My Beloved has come Home,
My Beloved has come Home
My Master, My Friend, My Beloved
My Master, My Friend, My Beloved
“At the end of my life, with just one breath left, if you come, I’ll sit up and sing”
Rumi”Q.S.A”

Above is a  Sufi song

Which Original Lyrics “Moula Moula” by Prasoon Joshi. The sufi song is made popular by music composed by Allah Rakha Rahman and sung by Kailash Kher…
 –

Such Songs  are written from a very high place of realization. Thus the lyrics, the metaphors used in the song are sign-posts of realization and post-realization states. They tells the tale of a realized heart and the journey to that sacred heart-land.

Thus in this particular song the Sufi’s journey to God-Consciousness (taqwa, fana and baqa) and various levels of “the Interior Castle” is included. For example, the journey begins with soul’s yearning and partaking in a mysterious fragrance that appear from nowhere. Before deep surrender, before enlightenment of the soul it has many desires, many innumerable ‘goals’ to achieve which all reduce to One Desire (for God) and one goal (to Reach at the Beloved) and there the soul becomes “pleased”, “pleasing” to its Lord.
Ya ayyatuhal nafsul mutma’inna, irji’i ila rabbika, raziyatan marziya.
“O you, pleased soul, come back to your Lord, satisfying and satisfied”.
There through the journey the soul realizes the mysterious fragrance was coming from “no other place” but from within and it was the Glance of Grace which enabled to discover this bewildering reality.And these songs, if anyone assume them to be mere sentimentality or emotionalism; no, they are far from it. The way-stations described using different metaphors are highly endorsed by many awliya, saints and realized friends of God who have traveled the same path themselves, have reached and their “works” are testimony of that. And like St. Theresa of Avila who wrote from her own experience “The Interior Castle”, gave us the reality map of the journey to the Real. And these songs capture fragments of that map. But just as a map is not the real terrain, so the journey must be taken by each soul to experience it and to begin such journey, one better enter and remain in the company of Friends (spiritual masters, precisely sufi master as they are the keepers of this both exoteric and esoteric living tradition) who have set out to Journey to the Real Home.  And in finding such company, one can learn and trace their path. Thats why its prayed:
Ihdinas Siratal Mustaqeema, Sirata allazeena an AAamta AAalayhim.
Show us the straight path, The path of those  upon whom Thou hast bestowed favors.’

The path is prayed to be shown, so that it could be traced and walked upon.

Love-A Non Personal Miracle

Even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secret of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life’s heart.”

– Khalil Gibran

 
Broken-heartedness is nothing uncommon for the heart to experience. For people of the Path, the experience of broken-heartedness is all too familiar. Many are actually whirled into the vortex of divine love from the height of their broken-heartedness in human love affair. The paradox is quite common that God will give the love for a human being, then the human being (who was the locus of love) is withdrawn, the union is made impossible and through all of this drama, the lover is drawn more close to the Real Beloved while made to journey into the arid desert of broken-heartedness.
The midwife knows that when there is no pain, the way for the baby cannot be opened and the mother cannot give birth. Likewise, for a new Self to be born, hardship is necessary. Just as clay needs to go through intense heat to become strong, Love can only be perfected in pain.”
– Elif Shafak, The Forty Rules of Love.
 –
In human love affair, the extream  painfull love is onesided  love,pain of separation in love, the feeling of betrayal and disappointed in the so called “one sided love” is like the pain of child-birth. That pain, the fire of love burns away our old self and gives birth to a new being with more pristine vision, wider view on life and expansive capacity of the heart. Infact the heart is given wing with love.
one way love which the love is not reciprocated by the other, or sometime which is coined as ‘one way love’ – even then love does its work as it should. It transforms the heart, it transforms the being of the lover. If the lover, when the other person is not reciprocating or not acknowledging or not conforming to the expectation of the lover and immediately if that turns the feeling towards that person bitter, sour or if a sense of disappointment engulfs the heart – then know that this love is actually is still at a very immature level than transcendent love.
So instead of focusing and worshiping the idol, which in this case is the other person, love should be freed from its lesser reality. Yes the human partner is wonderful to hold, to sing to, to love, to embrace, to rest on his or her bosom, to dance with, to walk hand in hand – but after all, even that will come to an end, but love will remain.
The kind of love which loves the person this moment, and the next moment hates the same person with all its might – is exactly the kind of disappointment and suffering that goes on mostly in the world in the name of love.
Someone asked,
“Can you define what is one sided love?
If anyone love any human being from all soul, his/her every desire, every feeling is for the other, then how the other person never understand the love? How is it possible?
“The true purpose of rain clouds is not just to give rain, but to give birth to flowers and fruits in you garden of delight.” Yes even though the first thing you see from rain clouds are rain coming down, yet what you do not see are far more magical. The whole feast in the garden of delight where all the plants and trees takes in the water drops, mixes with divine elixir and produce such alchemical transfusion to produce the varying hued flowers, fragrance and fruits of sweetness – which ultimately is the destiny of the rain cloud and all the drops that it carry in its pregnant state.
One sided love is love which flows from one heart and the reciprocation might not be visible or one person loves another person – but that love is not acknowledged from the other end. One may wonder, why we fall in such embrace in the first place? Why such fuss?
Like that you may only see and feel the broken-heartedness when the so called “one sided love” happens. You may only see the object of this love not responding or turn away from you, but in reality the alchemical has process already started when that love energy arose in your heart and that is much much more important than being together with the person, and as it happens in many cases, everyday getting disappointed and eventually love turning into sour after-taste since the other person can not keep up with the fantasies and loaded expectations. And also the interesting paradox is that we only grow in our pain and in denial of what our ego demands and in separation in far greater degree than its opposite.
Its inevitable from our every day reality that in every human love affair that if the transcendence of the purpose of love is not made aware (and if ego is not under good management), no matter how much deeply two persons fall in love, when they are together, often time the disappointment, the bitterness, the idealize picture gets shattered and no time in human history we are seeing this more pronounced than our time. There are no short of real life stories when there is a love affair that goes on for 2-3 years or 5 years and when the two are together, living under the same roof, they get a divorce or separation in one month or in weeks or even days. Why is that so? Didn’t they think they love each other so much?
So when there is one sided love and your ego is telling you cant live without this person, o how wonderful really it would be to be with this person; and if life’s unfolding leads you otherwise, don’t punish your mind by feeling betrayed. Trust in the wisdom of life and know that you are given what is best for you. Know this with certitude because that is a token of your faith in the unfolding of the divine hand.
Always be grateful for the love and do not complaint in the one-sidedness of the love or when the person of love is not making life journey with you. “Everyone has a direction to which he or she turns to” – says the revelation, and the directions of the lover and the form around which the love came,  the beloved might have very different directions in life individually. One should remain grateful for love, only for love itself because its a gift and extremely helpful in human being’s growth. Regardless how we perceive the end result of the love through our short-sightedness, love alone is reason enough to be thankful. And one must not feel bitter if the person loved is not to become a life-partner because that’s the destiny and the life does what is best for us. Have patience in face of such moments.
“Patience does not mean to passively endure. It means to be farsighted enough to trust the end result of a process. What does patience mean? It means to look at the thorn and see the rose, to look at the night and see the dawn. Impatience means to be so shortsighted as to not be able to see the outcome. The lovers of God never run out of patience, for they know that time is needed for the crescent moon to become full.
Whatever happens in your life, no matter how troubling things might seem, do not enter the neighborhood of despair. Even when all doors remain closed, God will open up a new path only for you. Be thankful! It is easy to be thankful when all is well.
“A Sufi is thankful for not only what he has been given but also for all that he has been denied”

For life, my friends, is quite difficult for most of us, too complex for the complex mind but yet it is so extremely simple it defies reason. Love is the key to everything. I know the word Love has been much abused, maligned beyond recognition, commercialised to the extreme, bandied about by careless utterances of “I love you” by people who have no idea what “to love” means.

Only one love is true – that is unconditional love.That is the love that God shows us.the closest thing you can experience with the Divine is through unconditional love.Unconditional love does not mean self sacrificing, abuse-me-all-you-want kind of love. It is a strong love. A brave and courageous love which says:

I love you – as you are. You don’t have to love me back. And I love you enough not to let you abuse me.
You are only capable of achieving this kind of love if you love yourself.
Pain can change you…but that dosn’t mean it has to be a bad change…take that pain The Glorious one will change it into wisdom…
He is al-Karim, the Generous Giver and He is always giving. All our experiences in life are His gifts that evolve us. Broken heartedness is nothing uncommon to those who come to Love Him and seek Him, because in the pain of separation from temporal, Hu gives us an opportunity to know again and to realize the truth that
 ‘truly we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return’. Undertsand this statemetn with all your heart that ‘we belong to the Divine’ (li-llahi), which is saying, we are His beloved, thats why  in reality we only belong to Him and to no other, and our soul’s return to the Real Home is also He.
That, my friends, is how you will feel, at the end of this journey. You, the physical self, would have died, before the hour of your death is due, and all that remains is your soul, shining in its true beauty. By then it does not matter if your are still together with the initial object of your desires, of your love. You understand that what is most important is the Journey. And that you fell in love with Love in the first place.

The way of love is not a subtle argument.
The door there is devastation.
Birds make great sky-circles of their freedom.
How do they learn it?
They fall, and falling, they’re given wings.

Rumi.

Readings

Circle of Love by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

Love of Sufi in Contrast to Ordinary Lover

Shaykh Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee of Golden Sufi writes in this book, Circle of Love,


“The mystical path is a journey from duality back to unity, back to the per-eternal oneness that is hidden within the heart. For the Sufi this journey is a love affair that begins on the level of the soul and is brought into consciousness through the grace of the Beloved. Sufis are those who love Him for His sake, and who have come to taste the sweet oneness of this love in the very substance of their being. This love draws us back to Him, back to what always is, to the eternal moment which does not belong to time.
Walking the path of love is a circular journey in which we discover what was always here but hidden under the veils of illusion, under the coverings of the ego and the mind. Stepping onto the path is stepping into the closed circle of love in which “the end is present at the beginning.”

wordpress

Most of  people thinks that love is all about romanticism and happiness.but this is just fantasy of mind that’s why every lover desperate after some time in wordily love..as wordily love is just a part of journey which leads to True love and Beloved.
As Sufi Master Rumi said,
not some shy question
and not with fears for its reputation!
Love is a madman, working his wild schemes,tearing off his clothes,
running through the mountains, drinking poison,
and now quietly choosing annihilation.


First of all, contrary to popular belief that love is all about romanticism, elated feelings and happy emotion-love often comes so violently and sweeps our heart chamber— emptying everything, sparing nothing and leaving our heart and mind in total ruin.
As some poet who knew well such effect said,
“stay away, stay away, stay away from the lane of love.”
This is because love is not always about what we desire or whom we want, but often it is about an all transforming experience of the heart, a revolution which once we experience, we never remain the same person as before. It changes the whole quality of our being.The more deep the experience of love is, the more of the fiber of our being is affected.
Echoing the truth, the great beings who were real lovers taught:


“The quest for Love changes us. There is no seeker among those who search for Love who has not matured on the way. The moment you start looking for Love, you start to change within and without.”


In human sense, love, even though whirls around someone, even though as human being we can only experience love in its basic level by falling in or feeling the magnetism of love for someone, after all, the other person in this case is not the end or the final goal, but a mean or a vehicle. The purpose remains as the transformation of our being and the goal is the process itself, which is love.
Khalil Gibran offer us the following wisdom on the way and goal of love:


And think not you can direct the course of love,
for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.
Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
For love is sufficient unto love.


For many this is very hard to understand and even for the mind to accept when all it sees when in love is the beloved. But know that in human experience of love, the other person’s role is to holding a form. We are soul-beings who are shaped in form and hence need other forms for our engagement. Even the form of this planet earth is made so that we, humanity can bear the beams of love.
according to William Blake.

“In the dualistic love affair the other person is the vehicle through which the experience of attraction is given”.
Harsh as it might sound, but infect it would not be wrong to say that compared to the gift of the experience of love(the experience itself is a function of the heart and formless),whereas the vehicle, the other person is like an idol. To understand the truth in it, observe the human predicament of immature love. The moment the lover is disappointed, the same very idol which was idealized, fantasized and worshiped becomes the idol to be hated, cursed and to be forgotten.

My self when young did eagerly frequent

Doctor and Saint,and heard great argument

About it and about;but evermore

Came out the same Door as in i Went.

With them the Seed of Wisdom did i sow,

And with my own hand labour’d it to grow:

And this was all the Harvest that i reap’d–

I came like water,and like wind i go.

-Omer Khayyam


May all our soul-calls to our soul-mates, may all our blessed heart-aches and broken-heartedness help us realize the greater truths in life and to reach us more close to the Station of all stations, the Real, the Beloved It Self.

Ameen.

Love of a Sufi
quoting from Sufism.ru.


All human beings during their lives tend to experience love and friendship.

Human love can be classified into three basic categories according to its intensity, quality and limitations.

The first form of love is the friendship that is based on social conventions where two people behave in accordance with the following principle: “I for myself, you for yourself; we love each other, and we have no expectations of each other.” This form of love is that of ordinary people, whose love relationships tend to be of this nature.

The second form of  love is based on a more solid foundation and those who live together usually experience this kind of love: “I for you, you for me; we love each other, having mutual expectations of each other.” This form of love includes profound love as well as the love found within most families, involving emotional give and take on an equal footing.

The third kind of love transcends all conventions based on mutual expectations and is based on the following principle: “I am for you, you are for whoever you choose; I accept whatever you want without any expectations whatsoever.”

The Sufi’s devotion to God and to the master of the Path represents this latter form of love. This third kind of love is not based upon any constraints or conditions, and the Sufi who possesses this kind of love says with contentment and submission to God:

“I am satisfied with whatever You want without any expectations, and love You without any thought of reward.”

The Sufi’s love of God is not based upon any expectation of reward or fear of punishment, for the Sufi does not have any wishes and demands. The Sufi embraces and loves God’s wrath as much as His grace, His hardheartedness as much as His fidelity.

Only a few Sufis have managed to annihilate themselves in the Beloved through the path of such love and friendship. It is about these Sufis that Master Rumi has said:

Everything is the Beloved,
and the lover but a veil;
The Beloved is alive,
while the lover is dead.

Into the ocean deep inside,,,,
Far beyond to give up breadth,,,
To a numb and deep silent soul,,,
Covered above by an injured shell,,,,
Faqeer-e-Murshad
Grand Master of Mystics, Prophet Muhammad(peace be upon him) said,
“at-turuqu ila ‘Llahi ka-nufusi bani Adam”,
‘the paths leading to God are as numerous as the children of Adam’.
The Qur’an states in the verse 2:148,
“And for everyone there is a direction towards which one turn.”
A Sufi Javad Nurbakhsh Stated,
“Although Sufis live outwardly among people, inwardly they are constantly occupied with God. Their bodies and mind exist with others, whereas their hearts are far from them. Externally, they are congenial with everyone. Inwardly, however, they themselves are strangers to all. They are at peace with all people, yet within them selves tranquility is to be found only in Divine Love. Though they live among people they are truly alone.”
The ancient Path of Sufism is for spiritual development which  is based upon connection with and experience of the Divine. It involves study with a teacher and the awakening, through direct contact with Truth of latent spiritual capacity; this is done so the traveller can help others. This Truth or universal essence, the spiritual traveller seeks and experiences, is the underlying energy or fabric of created forms.
This Path, existed long before there were religions; this way of learning is at the heart of the great religions; it is the underlying spiritual energy that gives everything in the universe its form and substance. Inside each of us is an aspect of this wondrous element. Through preparation, practice developing our inner spiritual awareness, and Grace we unite with and serve Ultimate Reality every day.
 –
Once a Master said to a traveller in a Sufi Story:

Remember, everyone is a spiritual traveller and in their long journey through this universe, experiences many wondrous things. Countless experiences go beyond words and cannot be written down- changing with each moment and person. This dimension is one of the elements that make life multi-level and beautiful. If this is too difficult for those who ask about us to grasp, ask them to define love or even life itself. As they ponder all the possibilities, then, they will begin to understand.

A Wiseman Of God said,

“Sufism is a Path of Knight, not of clowns or false messiah.’

Just as Jesus,(Peace be Upon Him) “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.”
Just as the Tariqa of Christ was the Path of Knight, so it continues in the mystic chivalry and nobility of Tasawwuf (Way of Purification, otherwise known as Sufism) and its carriers are the Sufi mystics.

For Sufie the path of Sufism is the Superhighway to God. For those who wish to connect with Truth and use their inner spiritual capacity to help others; this form of learning is available in every town and city.

The Message of True Sufism is based on freedom, love, and reform of the nafs … and society…But unfortunately the risk raised that this practice become a kind of hobby… as Yoga, Taichi… perhaps it is due to the misunderstanding and corruption of culture who did made from all satisfaction of primary and animal instinct a right in the name of “freedom”. … people got the tendency to lights… but as said the quote:
“even though all light are from God… all lights are not divine!!!”
As a Sufi sheikhs have declared, “Whatever can be expressed in words isn’t Sufism.”
As Rumi has stated, “When I came to love, I was ashamed of all I have ever said about love.”
As a Sufi Javad Nurbakhsh said,“Whatever great Sufies have said in explanation of Sufism was the result of and appropriate to their particular situation and states. Such explanation, therefore do not constitute general definitions of Sufism. Rather they refer to some of its characteristics.”
FUNCTIONAL FEATURES OF PAINTING:
The above painting entitled by the name of Faqeer-e-Murshad is  from series ” Sufi path  is about seekers & lover of Sufi path and the painting symbolizes both the Sufi journey and the path. In the arid desert a shrine of Wali Allah “Friend of God” Is reflection of kind a oasis which carries the water of life, spring gushes up from the heart of the earth that delights the soul. (Oaises means lushgreen garden into the desesrt and wastland).
The Faqeer e Murshad is a little glimpse of experience during my personal spiritual journey.When I initiated by my Murshad Sarkar..when I completely melted in Love and became nothing..so you can say it it is a reflection of start of my journey toward my oasis My Master to my Master’s Chain of Sarkar Hazrat Baikhtiyar Kaki”Q.S.A”
For the long time of my life a long way in the darkness of the world… in which I was walking to seek answers to basic questions.. (who am I?…where am I coming from?..and why I am here..etc….)..I travelled here and there to get the answered and visited shrines sacred places,explored the chains of Sufi spiritual way for intensively reaching towards my root..beholding the path!…then I met a master who did put me in… I still don’t know how it has happened… perfect… GOD knows!
A kind of expression is it is the master who find you…it is!
A Call of Sufi through Painting.
O Sufi! The Sufi’s only real miracle is non-being. To claim miraculous powers is to express ‘being’, and on the Path this is unbelief. The master of the Path is an idol-breaker not an idol maker. With this in mind, be sure to distinguish between commercial Sufism and true Sufism, so that you will recognize the false pretenders who only set traps.
O Sufi! Where there is talk of “I and you” and miraculous powers, Sufism doesn’t exist. Where pretension and self-existence are expressed Truth doesn’t exist. The criterion of being a Sufi is selflessness. The more selfless you are, the more a Sufi you become.
~ Nur Ali Shah Kermani
… to prefer the words of saints and sage and prophet instead to go with our own words… to stay safe of corruption by our illusory importance…etc..

Revelation of Art

I Don’t Make Art.
The Art Reveals on My Heart
People Says
I am an artist
But reality is this
I am just obedient of my Lord

I Don’t Make Art
It Reveals on My Heart

My hands are tie with unseen strings
My fingers dance on canvas
When my heart sings
My drum of heart plays by fingers of my Lord
He sends me notes
I only delivers and pass

I Don’t Make Art
It Reveals on My Heart

People asks me reasons
of flowing blues,reds and rainbow masons
Familiar faces with different seasons
There is only one reason
I clearly expressed and marks
Unknown opens in me Unknown bars

I Don’t Make Art
It Reveals on My Heart

My fingers are not heritage of mine
these are only for healing of others peace hymn
Not mention if i cares about the sign
My fingers work like brushes
become pen sometimes
and flows only Love’s wine
But not all time works aline
What my heart feels
I only sorts

I Don’t Make Art
It Reveals on my heart

The light of hue of my Beloved
By which my soul reflect colors
Travels through my heart
Through my mind
Through my all
Not able to show you
Astonishing light coming from dark
But this Art of Art

I Don’t Make Art
It Reveals on my heart
