The blessed month is hear

Ramadan Kareem

The fast is a quickening

All eye see is Light

Return of the sufi  jedi…LOL …last night we sang a song to God that caused the heavens to open and the angels to descend. Our sufi school in phily is in da hood. Most of the people can’t believe we are Muslims because we have Native American, Hindu, Buddhist, Taoist, Christian and Jewish symbols hanging up in our school. Yesterday we had a cookout for the neighborhood children during our fast. We prayed the sunset prayer in the school and broke the fast as a community. After the diner, we left the door of the school open and we started chanting Mu hay bu nafi(a sufi poem/qasida by Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba). Then we started chanting LA EE LA HA ILL ALLAH in a state of ecstasy. As the chanting grew louder and more intense, the neighbors came out of their house to look in our door and windows to see what was going on. As words of praise filled the air, when eye looked outside there was at least 10 people outside listening. This was a wonderful night at our sufi school in phily. God willing we will have the circle every Wednesday during Ramadan.

Sufism is a rose garden. The sufis say “if you stay around a rose garden, one day you will begin to smell like a rose.” Sufism is a living tradition. Sufism is a fragrant perfume that you must receive from a a living tradition. It is not something you can find in books or on the internet. Sufism is what comes from one heart of a Lover of God to another heart of a Lover of God. Sufism is the path of love and intoxication with God. Love is the wine of the sufi mystic. Last night there was wine in the tavern….and we ALL BECAME INTOXICATED….

LOVE IS THE WINE

Light night

we sang a song to God that opened the heavens

last night our cup ran-eth over

wine flowed into the streets

intoxicating the passerby and the on lookers

last night

the tavern stayed open late

we all drank, and drank and drank from the vats of love

until the distillery of love

was finished

living in the light of love…sufi ananda
