Know Love Serve

That's the life of this world...
But it differs from a person to another, you get to
KNOW, then
LOVE what you know, & then SERVE it in a way... I announce my love for Allah... & then comes everything that goes with that...
not a circle, but rather a straaaaaaaaaight line... parallel... u name it... It takes us to know first.... know real hard... then love truly... & serve in accordance... BUT it differs... Depending on WHAT... what you're getting to know.... Got it? So you better know right! In other words reconsider what you're knowing; 'cuz it might be not all that... Oops, or I better say what you're already serving, 'cuz I belive you're way beyond knowledge, and therefore beyond love... RECONSIDER...

Well, 2500 years ago, a wise old man who lived in India was ill to Death. And his followers asked him for instructions.

He told them nothing.

Just said "don't seek the Truth in Saints, nor in Books, nor in Gods either. Keep silent and look inside your hearts, and when you feel it is the Truth, down on your knees and follow it".

Maybe he (Allah blesses him and keep him in Its Mercy) was thinking on me ;)

RAMADAN MUBARAK...
MAY YOU HAVE A BLESSED RAMADAN FULL OF TRUTH... I DEDICATE THSES BEAUTIFUL WORDS TO YOU...

"The Gates of Heaven have been flung open, the gates of Hell firmly shut tight, the rains of Rahmah have begun pouring down upon our cities, our towns, our homes, our hearts and our souls. By the grace and mercy of Allah we have been given the opportunity again to free ourselves from the shackles of the temporal world, from the chains of stress and torment of the madness we find our selves in, to the peace and tranquillity of eternal bliss. Ahhhh how the soul takes flight in this blessed month to lands of serenity and joy, only a fool who's self has been consumed by this lower earth misses this opportunity to ascend the ladder of proximity. Ya Allah let us not be fools but rather wise men (and women) who expose ourselves to the lights of your promised kingdom.

It has also been related that in Ramadan there is nobody that prays except that for each prostration Allah writes for him a thousand five hundred good deeds and builds for him a house in Paradise made from bricks of emeralds and rubies. In another tradition it has been narrated that for each prostration in Ramadan Allah plants for one a tree that would take a traveller a thousand years to cross. Paradise from Ramadan to Ramadan renews and beautifies herself, and on it's first night a breeze named matheera is released from under the throne of Allah, it blows upon the leaves of paradise and knocks upon paradises doors. A sweet hum is heard, all those who hear it have never heard such a beautiful sound. The Hur al-Ayn (women of Paradise) call out to Ridwan, the gatekeeper of heavens doors, what is this night, he answers, this is the first night of Ramadan and the gates of Paradise have been opened for those fasting from the followers of Muhammed, sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam

This is a month that both the body and soul are cured of worldly ailments, the body being purified by fasting from food and drink whilst the soul is purified from that which distances one from the Divine -a bad thought, a negative comment, missing a prayer here and there, backbiting, slander, swearing- one may have fasted by staying away from food and drink but is stripped from the reward and spirit of the fast by involving oneself with such lowly endeavours.

Tonight a caller has begun to call out, Oh you wanting good come forth, Oh you wanting evil stay away. Let us run forth and respond to the call before it ceases and the nights of Ramadan pass. Our hearts are but vessels that have for so long been filled with the troubles of this world. Let us free ourselves this month by diving into its sea of graces. Rajib cleansed our hearts through istigfar (repentance) whilst Shaban filled it with love of our beloved Prophet, sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam, and longing to follow his sunnah. It is now time to fill these containers with love and longing for the Divine. Let us run out onto the fields of Ramadan and catch its intense rains of Rahmah, let us expose our hearts to pure intentions, righteous works and good actions. The ocean that prophets, great men and women once swam in, lies wide open in front of us, let us swim as we have never swam before."

Ramadan Mubarak from MeccaOne.
