Life is meaningful, only when one wishes to make it. We are creatures of time and we’ll wither away in it. The little moments of joy we find and create are all that will live with us.

Ja’fer al-Sadiq (a.s)

Ja’fer al-Sadiq (a.s) was from the line of the prophet of Islam and an Imam.
He was a man of wisdom, insightful knowledge, mysticism and a deep faith in God.

He originated the science of Chemistry, contributed major theories that baffle scientists today.
Greek and European greats took his recorded insights to accomplish their own works and in many cases, his words refuted their long-held beliefs.
Ja’fer al-Sadiq (a.s) was the teacher of Shams-i-Tabrīzī who in turn was the teacher of Jalāl ad-Dīn Rūmī.

This video does exceptional justice to this great man and his legacy, bringing truth to light.
Tonight in his good memory, I share this video.

 

NOTE: Those who doubt the claims are more than welcome to study history for themselves to study the facts.

May all who connect with God’s light between tonight & tomorrow, find immeasurable blessings and grace for years to come – in their lives and the lives of their children.

Purpose of Life

A lot many of us contemplate at times the reason for life.

The materialist focuses on the accumulation of things to find meaning, the spiritualist focuses on the natural order to find meaning.

Those who pursue science do not often see beyond atoms and molecules. The religiously devout only sees divinity and preaches to contend with it.

Some say explore and be inquisitive. Some say stay safe and be at peace.

The real question I ask is – why are we alive ?

Why are we born on day 1 and will die away on day 27,000 (e.g.) ?

Why do we get these 27,000 days to exist as flesh and bones?

This is how I see the answer:

We get these days to work on a few tasks.
Using our Mind, Brain, Hands, Feet and Speech.

1. First and foremost:

Appreciate and continually thank the one who took the decision to bring you to life, who took the decision to give you your body and your capacity to think, act and speak.

2. Second and most necessary:

To be free and act upon your own will.
Not that of your forefathers, not that of the strong and not that of the influential.
Your own will.

3. Third and most key:

To find your purpose/ your role in this continual sequel called life.
Life is a continuous run of time for a certain period. Each run for each of us is different. Like the start and stop of a stop watch.
Find the purpose for your run.
Don’t compare with others.

4. Fourth and necessary:

Contemplate for knowledge and wisdom and create only with a constructive purpose (not destructive).
Life has been created with a constructive mind, a positive mind.

5. Fifth and key:

Empathize with others like yourself who are around you and help them do the same. Be a community of people, who act conscientiously in unison.
When people unite – stronger purpose and capacity is born. With that more can be created.

Remember:

Any human who is given freedom, knowledge and purpose; will always inspire others around him/her to grow in their run.

That is the purpose of life.

Looking for Your Face

Poetry by,
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī

From the beginning of my life
I have been looking for your face
but today I have seen it

Today I have seen
the charm, the beauty,
the unfathomable grace
of the face that I was looking for

Today I have found you
and those who laughed
and scorned me yesterday
are sorry that they were not looking as I did

I am bewildered by the magnificence
of your beauty
and wish to see you
with a hundred eyes

My heart has burned with passion
and has searched forever
for this wondrous beauty
that I now behold

I am ashamed
to call this love human
and afraid of God
to call it divine

Your fragrant breath
like the morning breeze
has come to the stillness of the garden
You have breathed new life into me
I have become your sunshine
and also your shadow

My soul is screaming in ecstacy
Every fiber of my being
is in love with you

Your effulgence
has lit a fire in my heart
And you have made radiant
for me
the earth and sky

My arrow of love
has arrived at the target
I am in the house of mercy
and my heart
is a place of prayer


Forever dedicated to my Rooh Paree.
Mwaaaaaah Love You
