“Look upon those who rest in graves,
how they amassed wealth, how they built lofty buildings.
How high must their hopes be? But in vain. Their wealth has vanished,
the buildings are rubble. Why do you not learn from these things?”

sought Thy fragrance,
In the garden my eye looked
for Thy pretty face.
Yet I should find Thee ….
neither in this … nor in that,

Only my intuition ….
led me to Thy abode. ”

From the Minaret #2. . . Do not break anyone’s heart;

21271110_1309081875884187_6395011237888796059_n

“The universe is a complete unique entity.
Everything and everyone is bound together with some invisible strings.
Do not break anyone’s heart; do not look down on any weaker than you.
One’s sorrow at the other side of the world can make the entire world suffer; one’s happiness can make the entire world smile.”

~ Shams Tabrizi (r.a.)
