Allah created everything in pairs like 4 seasons, man and woman, darkness and light etc. to distinguish, identify and understand their impact on human life. Though they all have basic elements yet their appearance, feel and effect vary.
What true love is, I would like to enlighten you with its rival i.e. the lust ——-?
The true love is to give, sacrifice and surrender while the lust is to get, to capture and to possess—–
Lust is fire that afire others’ needs to please own richness
Lust is desirous of seizing power, status, chattels and all physical worldly attractions through fair and unfair means.
But love is peace, serene and harmony.
Love, peace serenity and harmony are qualities a human being is instilled, in mother’s womb.
But ways of life develop and change with location and situation. Satan is born to misguide. Hence he’s playing his part honestly.
Allah is love. Being His best creation we have the same qualities of Him. Like a drop of water is worthless but when in ocean, it smoothly flows or furious accordingly. As a poet said; “ mauj hay derya mai aur bayrun –e – dunya kuch nai” ( meansing; waves have no value outside river)
But the same drop of water is life giving to the cactii in desert.
A drop of water becomes a pearl when an oyster enclose it in its womb.
So if a man does a small act of kindness, his latent ability of being human emerges and affects positively not only himself but people around him.
As flowers bloom in spring due to rain, weather beautifying the atmosphere and affects the mood and behavior pleasingly so contiguous acts of gentleness changes human to humane thus true love is nurtured step by step and genuinely.
Consequently a human being transforms into pious trustworthy and upright man.
Prophets were designed as such, as they were assigned great responsibility to preach the message of brotherhood and compassion. But saints and aulias, dervish groomed themselves with rigorous practice of being self-sacrificing to become true lovers of Allah.
Hazrat Amir Khusro was greatly inspired by Hazrat NIzamuddin. He was intoxicated in love of NIzamuddin Aulia. So much so that he cited, “You’ve taken away my looks, my identity, by just a glance. By making me drink the wine of love-potion. I have come and fallen at your door step, for you to safeguard my pride, my dignity. You are my man, Oh beloved of Almighty; Dye me in your hue.
Maulana Rumi. It was his meeting with the dervish Shams-e Tabriz that completely changed his life. From an accomplished teacher and jurist, Rumi was transformed into an ascetic.
RUMI is concerned with the spiritual evolution of a human being:
*Man not conscious of God is akin to an animal and true consciousness makes him divine
*The lover’s cause is separate from all other causes
Love is the astrolabe of God’s mysteries
* “In Turkish culture,” he said, “Sufism has always provided the religious justification for the fine arts. It is like the sea and a boat: one cannot exist without the other. ”
