  3. Allah has created some to administer the worlds with and some purely for Himself. They are His vessels. With them He sees, hears and speaks.

  4. The most powerful manifestation of Allah's name al-Wadud is LOVE. Thus it is said "Allah is Love", the source of all attraction in existence.

  5. When love manifests the self disappears. The lover first submits himself to his beloved, then loses himself totally. Only love remains!

  6. Wisdom is to see the reasoning and purpose behind an activity. The ignorant judge simply based on what is seen. The gnostic see the wisdom.

  7. All formations are from the grace of Allah. To see this requires wisdom. One who can't see the wisdom in something can't see the grace.

  8. To see the grace in what you're experiencing you need to be able to see the wisdom. If your complaining you're not seeing wisdom and grace!

  9. You can't love one in whom you don't see yourself. You can only love someone who is a mirror to you. It's the reflection that you love, not the form.

  10. You won’t feel attracted to one who isn't created with the elements with which you are and hence doesn't mirror you. Thus is the mechanics of love!

  11. To expect one to indulge you in pleasure and keep you clear of suffering isn't love, it’s an animalistic instinct. Love has no expectations!

  12. To love Allah means to experience absolute unity and oneness after observing one's essential infinite limitlessness on the mirror of Allah.

  13. Without burning in the fire of love… Cleansing yourself of your 'self'. Becoming one with the One. And giving unrequitedly… Can you be HUman?

  19. The system of Allah is clear and simple: you will suffer for every person and event that you take personally. If you don't get PERSONal, you won't burn.

  20. To love is one thing, to believe is another. You may not fully believe someone you dearly love. Love is from the spirit, belief is from the mind.

  21. LOVE isn't by choice. But belief is driven by the mind. You may not believe something your mind can't comprehend, but you may still love it. Hence, it's risky to live close to some loved ones, whose seemingly senseless actions may go against your conditioning and destroy your beliefs.

  22. Oneness (tawhid) is you observing and witnessing the oneness of Allah. Unity (wahdah) is Allah witnessing His own Oneness.
