Wherever the Lowlands are, there the Water Goes…

Peace, one and all…

Here is some beautiful Sufi music from Syria.  May it be of benefit, and may all who pass by be blessed by it.

Shaykh Hamza Shakkour

Here are some beautiful words of Mevlana to ponder whilst you listen to the music.

‘Loving-kindness is drawn to the saint, as medicine goes
to the pain it must cure.
Where there is pain, the remedy follows:
wherever the lowlands are, the water goes.
If you want the water of mercy, make yourself low;
then drink the wine of mercy and be drunk.
Mercy upon mercy rises to your head like a flood.
Don’t settle on a single mercy, O son.
Bring the sky beneath your feet
and listen to celestial music everywhere’
(2.1938-1942)

Ma’as salama,
Abdur Rahman
