"Oh the coolness of the eyes of Ali!
The world does Sajda facing the Kabah,
Yet the Kabah gives Salaam to Your True Sajda in karbala!"

- Husayni Sunni


For some time, some of the Umayyad caliphs would curse the ahlul bayt, until it was some of the khawaarij who commanded them to end it on account of cursing others not being part of manliness [muroo’ah).

This is a reminder for us that perhaps some thorns can produce petals.

With the sword of Fate, I might cut the ropes of my tent free
if not, I will stay and fight; it is not in my nature to run.
Hafez, although it was not our choice to sin,
still, play along, and continue to say “We sinned”.

Shams-ud-din Muhammad Hafez (1320-1389).

O precious soul,
this longing will make you pure.
O sacred body,
this longing will make you thin.

O great one,
The fire of love that you burn in
Will turn your world into paradise.

"Like a hypocrite, you offer your excuses –

“I’m so busy providing for wife and children,
“I don’t have time to scratch my head.

How could I have time to practice religion?

“I cannot escape from feeding my family,
I must seek lawful earnings tooth and nail.”

You have an escape from God — but not from food.

You have an escape from religion — but not from idols."
