دلی دارم که شراب هم آرامش نمی کند --- مگر شراب یاد وصل نگار


I have a heart that no wine whatsoever can console,
Except the wine of ever recalling the joy of joining with the Beloved.

Your words set my heart to yearning.

"I drank glass after glass of Love.
neither did the wine finish,
nor my thirst."

- Bayazid

Ya Haqq!

Dearest Safa,
Such touching words could only come out from a heart full of His Love and Purity :) SubhanAllah!
i am reminded of Rabia's words when she explains Divine Love-
The one who tastes, knows:
the one who explains, lies!
Love, hugs and prayers:)

Thanks dear Irving and my dear Krishna for your beautiful God-send presence, luminosity of the hearts, and soulful words.

Love and prayer is all I have to humbly offer to your blessed souls!

wonderful dear brother..

Shaykh Ahmad ibn Ajiba in his Fahrasa says:

My Beloved has let me drink the wine of His love and I am filled with the wine of this passion.

While he was pouring me to drink, my thirst increased
and my heart, with nostalgia, was full to the point of bursting.

Were the entire universe, heaven and earth, filled with the cups
of the wine of love, my thirst would not be quenched.

And even if, drawing from the springs of the two worlds, I drank in love with each of my breaths, I would not weary of drinking...
