The Sufi Way


"The Sufi is he who makes God’s slaves love the Law."

Shaikh Abdal-Hakim Murad

Nowhere have I found a more accurate and real definition of Sufism than this. Sufis won't give you a list of dos and don'ts to attain God's love, which tends to be very long in case of Islam. Rather they make journey short for you by making you love Allah. Out of this love for Him, every rule looks attractive, as if filled with a gratifying and satisfying pleasure. I have experienced this myself. I, for instance, rarely was inclined to recite Quran for some 10 to 12 years. Now I burst forth to read even a few ayahs. Praise be to Allah!

And Urdu couplet says:

One who is ready to destroy his persona in love one who is ready to perish will reach the destination

May our hearts remain attached to Him and nothing besides Him. Aameen.

I would like to recommend to you Afzal Iqbal's "Life and work of Muhammad Jalal-ud-din Rumi" It's an excellent book with many samples of Rumi's Persian poetry with excellent English translations. May be you have read it?

No, I haven't read. Insha Allah I'd read it.
