Eid Mubarak!

eidmubarak2

Salaam everyone!

Sorry, I wasn’t able to post anything yesterday because I was out with family and friends, but I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy and blessed Eid.  May Allah accept our fasting and fill our days with joy and beauty!  Ameen!

I would like to share one of my favorite poems by our beloved Jalaluddin Rumi, the 13th century Islamic mystic and poet.  It’s short, but very sweet and beautiful.

O Love, O pure deep Love, be here, be now,
Be all – worlds dissolve into Your
stainless endless radiance,
Frail living leaves burn with You brighter
than cold stares –
Make me Your servant, Your breath, Your core.

~ Rumi

  1. Rumi is such an inspiration for taking the risk of love on the path. The only risk worth taking and in fact no risk at all but it requires courage to give up the dictates of our nafs (ego).

    Much love,
    Yafiah
