A spiritual awakening…………

                                
Annotation of “Sorrow looted the heart”
Sorrow looted this heart,
and Your Love threw it to the winds.
This is how the secret which saints and seers were denied
was whispered to me.
(Abu Said Abil-Kheir)
(967-1049)


Your love whirls the winds as You threw
Drooping the disguise as the love grew!
When the wise saints and sages’ love rooted
Their hearts revive as sorrow looted!
(nur-inn)
Possesing the love of God is our ultimate aim but to reach this ultimate stage….we will be tested through trials and tribulations ……….when we believe and accept each breath we take, each step we move, is by His Mercy and Love, and have faith that He is with us and never forsake us, we will begin to have a strong dependency on Him and we will live a life seeking His Redha, Mercy and Love in our thoughts, speech and actions….When dependency on man can only lead to hurt, pain eventually causing sorrow to the heart, dependency on God will enablesorrow to be looted from the heart as true love of God dwells in it. As the sorrow droops….the mystical awakening occurs and unfolds leaving no room for grief, as the heart is filled with joy and contentment ….unveiling a hidden blessing…............
a spiritual awakening…..
There is no situation that would cause grief to a
believer, or cause his distress, because he has grasped this secret
and attained pure faith. God explains the spiritual state of the
believer in these words:
Those who say, "Our Lord is God," and then go straight will feel no
fear and will know no sorrow. (Translation Surah Al-Ahqaf:13)
