Fave Poem of the Day

For the love of Sufism and its universal message of love :)


My heart has become capable of every form
by Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi


My heart has become capable of every form:
it is a pasture for gazelles and a convent for Christian monks,
And a temple for idols, and the pilgrim's Ka'ba,
and the tables of the Tora and the book of the Koran.
I follow the religion of Love, whichever way his camels take.
My religion and my faith is the true religion.
We have a pattern in Bishr, the lover of Hind and her sister,
and in Qays and Lubna, and in Mayya and Ghaylan.
