Say: 'O My servants who have transgressed against your own souls: do not despair of God's mercy, for God forgives all sins. It is S/He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful.' Qur'an (39:53)

This is one of the most beautiful videos I’ve experienced in a long time. Ya Ala!  Masha’Ala!  I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

One Truth … There is only One Truth … Amin!

I listen to this video almost daily. Many times it is in the background playing from the headphones while I do my stuff on the internet. I think it has a lot of subliminal power and I feel my heart soften now the minute it begins to play. Thank You, my Beloved, for the opportunity to know You so intimately through Rumi and all his friends who cherish him.

Muhammad, peace be on him, said, “Muslims will always earn the reward of charity

for planting a tree, sowing a crop

and then birds, humans, and animals eat from it”

(Al-Bukhari and Muslim)


Dalai Lama’s words really got me.  This isn’t about you or me.  Its about every citizen of this planet.  I include in that all the species who we share the universe with.  I include birds, rainforests, whales, panda bears…and on an on it goes.  Quran tells us every type of creature is a community of believers.

“Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children.”

-Native American proverb-

There is not an animal (that lives) on the earth,

nor a being that flies on its wings, but (forms part of) communities like you.

Nothing have we omitted from the Book,

and they (all) shall be gathered to their Lord in the end.

—Quran 6:38
