My life passing me by and That Most Beautiful Super Being was my company all these years and yet I was too busy consuming to take notice:
6:91, 39:67. They have no fair appreciation for Allah, what appreciation for Him/IT is due
I look at this photo, servants starved to death, and may Allah sprout midst my sorrows the Meadows of Divine Secrets…

1. New blog for Shabistari’s iconic work Gulshan-e Raz (Meadows of Secrets) and its commentary by Lahiji:
Mr. B. Purcell of Sweden & Grant of Milwaukee do the write-ups and translates them into Swedish.
4. Tafsir Surah Al-Asr: http://untiredwithloving.org/al_asr.html
5. 40 Hadith, number 31: http://www.untiredwithloving.org/fortyhadith_31.html
Wrote this today to elucidate why the scholars of Islam 100s of years ago circulate a later with a group of questions for other scholars to reply, and one of the questions is about the concept of “I” as in me myself.
The writeup is geared towards making the understanding of Gulshan Raz easier specially on questions 3-4
Sultan of Egypt Abu Nasr Saif Al-Din Qaytabay from the dynasty of Al-Jarakasa had become seriously ill facing death. When recovered, an expedition of scholars (of Islam) and others paid him a visit except Imam Suyuti. As a result Sultan sent him a messenger seeking his presence at the court, and again Suyuti refused. After a while again the Sultan sent a messenger summoning Suyuti and to intimidate him with the consequences of refusal. In spite of threats against his life, Imam Suyuti refused the second messenger as well and as a result this collection of Hadith (Prophetic Narrations) were compiled by him:
Those of you who are on the path of knowledge, rest assured that your provision is exclusively with Allah and no one else, specially the governors and universities funded by governments and militaries and specially mosques and religious organizations funded by the wealthy businessmen.
As did Imam Suyuti, be content with your wife or husband, your children, your parents, brothers and sisters and stay at your home and focus on the research and development of creative productions to further the knowledge. Collecting paycheques as compensation for your research as justification to gain livelihood shall only win you trials and tribulations, much pain at the end.
If you cannot, and there is no home no wife no husband no kids, then stay by the side of the roads carrying your books and study as hard as you could and do not mind the blame and shame, for in presence of Allah the scholar feels only shame for Allah and no one else, the scholar only asks for provision from Allah and no one else.
