    The Sufi ...

    Sometime in the never_never enough time of the future, a separate article will be published regarding the mysticism of the sufi. Content for the present moment, simply to gather a few quotations from such acknowledged Sufi's, and from the Prophet Muhammad, and present these as an extention to the Islamic Resources complied above. The claim of the Surfis to have inherited their doctrine from the Prophet deserves respect.

    Al Hallaj (AD 858- 922) says about God:

    Love is the Water of Life

    Everything other than love for the most beautiful God is agony of the spirit, though it be sugar- eating.
    What is agony of the spirit?
    To advance toward death without seizing hold of the Water of Life.

    Mesnevi I 3686-87

    Poems of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi

    Sayings attributed to Muhammad:

  • Be in the world like a traveler, or like a passer on, and reckon yourself as of the dead.

  • The grave is the first stage of the journey into eternity.

  • Die before ye die.

  • None of you shall see his Lord before dying.

  • Sell this present world of yours for the next world
    and you will gain both in entirety.
    But do not sell the next world for this world,
    for so shall you lose the two together.
    Act towards this world as if it were not.
    And towards the world to come as if it would never cease to be.

    Hasan al-Basri (d.728, born in Medina, died in Basra. Eminent Sufi)
