The love of the Beloved

with 4 comments

“The love of the Beloved
must be unconditionally returned.
If you claim love
yet oppose the Beloved,
then your love is but a pretence.
You love the enemies of your Beloved
and still seek love in return.
You fight the beloved of your Beloved.
Is this Love or the following of shaitan?
True devotion is nothing
but total submission
of body and soul

to One Love.
We have seen humans claim to submit,
yet their loyalties are many.
They put their trust here, and their hope there,
and their love is without consequence.”

~ ibn al Qayyim al Jawziyah

  1. This is so true dear. All ways to be meditated. And not a light subject, but really difficult to apply. Only inner we find the strengh to live unconditional love. Thanks to the withdrawal offered by Almighty.
    Thank you.
