To a lover, a hundred thousand lives are nothing without the Beloved. He who has lived for something other than Him, were it Adam himself, has been driven out.
The dwellers in paradise know that the first thing they must give up is their heart.
Farid udin Attar
This Friday, I want to spend some time reflecting, giving up my heart to God. To turn off the world and take deep breath and ask my heart to say the One Lord’s name. To clear out my qalb, remove my ties to the dunya for a bit and think only of my Lord with whom lies eternal happiness.
