While Layla was thus dreaming of her beloved, suddenly a loud voice reached her ear. Someone was passing the garden, singing to himself. The voice was that of a stranger, but the lines were well known to her; she recognised Majnun’s verses at once:
Majnun is torn by grief and suffering,
Yet Layla’s garden blooms as if in spring.
How can his Love live joyfully, at rest
And smile, while arrows pierce him, at a jest?
— The Story of Layla and Majnun (via ahqibhussain)
break my heart and crushed it open,
for You are al-Jabbar the destroyer of all idols..
my heart is dead so wake her up,
for You are al-Hayy the One who brings the dead back to life..
my heart is cold and solid so melt it with Your love,
for You are al-Wadud, the Most Loving One..
my heart is darkened so light it up with Your Beauty,
for You are an-Nur the One who brings darkness back to Light..
i asked You of nothing except that i may be truly fall foolishly in love with You,
so that i may see nothing except for You..
i ask you of nothing except for Your love and Your beloved’s love,
for You are as-Samie' the Listener of complaints and prayers..
as i can’t ask from anyone else except from You the Lord of this universe..
ولقد جعلتك في الفؤاد محدثي”
وأبحت جسمي من أراد جلوسي
فالجسم مني للجليس مؤانس
"وحبيب قلبي في الفؤاد أنيسي
رابعة العدوية -
"And I made You in my soul The One I converse with
And left my body for those who want my company
The body accompanies those sitting around me
And The Love of my soul in my heart is my companion.”
- Rabiah Al Adawiyyah
Truly the veils are lifted between the lover and the Beloved if you go to Him in the intention of just wanting Him desiring Him over all other desires and wanting to become His most beloved and the closest friend.
But that Divine Friendship demands sacrifices, in fact I can say one has to shed the blood of their other desires… but its worth every sacrifice in what He(swt) gives you in return. Alhumdulilla."
