Life’s Changing Fortunes

Peace, one and all…


When viewed from the perspective of oneness, the changing fortunes of life are not a cause for sadness.  Rather, they simply represent the soul’s unfolding communion with God, as that ongoing conversation changes tone, register and frequency.  God speaks to us in each and every moment: life’s ebb and flow are merely different clauses in that never-ending Divine sentence.  And God says, in His exalted Book:

‘And if all the trees on earth were pens, and the sea [were] ink, with seven [morel seas yet added to it, the words of God would not be exhausted: for, verily, God is almighty, wise’ (31:27, trans. M. Asad)

Ma’as salama,
Abdur Rahman

  1. al-salamu alaikum Safire000,

    Welcome to my online home. Allah bless you always.

    Thank you for your kind words. I am honoured by them. In all truth, all that is beautiful comes from God. Only the uglinesses are mine.

    Ya Haqq!
