Forever Returning Home…

Peace, one and all…

We are always travelling, from place to place and from state to state.  ‘Die before you die’, says beloved Mustafa (alaihi al-salatu wa al-salam): travel to that place of stillness before a greater ending overtakes you.  But, death is not an end, nor is stillness truly without movement.  For when we die, we merge once more into the totality of all things and when are are stilled, deeper spaces open out before us.

‘Be in this world as though you were a traveller or a wayfarer’, says Habib Allah (alaihi al-salatu wa al-salam).  In all truth, this is what we are, travellers forever returning home, atoms of dust forever swirling around the Sun of All Being.

And praise be to God, Who maketh it so…

Ma’as salama,
Abdur Rahman
