He Watered My Veins

Peace, one and all…

‘The guide has planted God’s jasmine plant within me.
He watered my veins with ‘negation and affirmation’.
Blossoming, the bush spread its fragrance through me.
Long live my perfect guide, Bahu, who has planted this shrub!’
(Hazrat Sultan Bahu)

  1. I have been reading a lot of your works – really love all of them- the way you have written about women also- giving them due respect and mentioning that our Prophet gave the most respect to women- all of them are very nicely written.

    I like the Sufi way of thinking rather than the very extremist way of thinking- I belive in doing good,

    I always am surrounded by very few well-wishers and more of people who would want bad for me-i need a lot of things to be happening in my life-need your prayers-do keep me in your Duas-thats a sincere request.

    ( Oh by the way I had a question- hope you dont mind answering the same for me:- Is Mecca wrong and Makka right?a friend told me about this and i wanted to get it
    confirmed:-)

  2. al-salamu alaikum Questions,

    Welcome to my online home. May Allah bless you always.

    May Allah make your life easier, and may he surround you with people who wish you well, and protect you from those who wish you harm.

    As for Mecca/Makka, Mecca is the traditional English spelling. Makka is a modern rendering that is closer to the Arabic original. I’m not sure that one is necessarily wrong and the other right – they’re just different.

    At any rate, welcome again to my online home. Allah bless you.

  4. Wa alaikum salam

    There are different ways of transliterating the Arabic word. This is simply mine. I chose it because I feel it mirrors the sound more fully. Though Allah knows best. Welcome to my online home. Allah bless you always.
