I f there is any lover in the world, 0 Muslim, it is I.
If there is any believer, infidel, or Christian hermit, it is I.
The wine, the cup-bearer, the musician, the instrument and the music,
The beloved, the candle, the liquor and the inebriation, it is I.
The seventy-two religious sects in the world
Do not really exist;
I swear by God every religious sect-it is I.
Earth, air, water and fire: do you know what they are?
Earth, air, water and fire-and the soul as well; it is I
Truth and falsehood, good and evil, pleasure and suffering, beginning and end,
Knowledge, learning, asceticism, devotion and faith-it is I.
Be assured that the fire of hell and its flames,
Paradise, Eden and the angels of heaven-it is I.
Heaven and earth and all they hold: angels, demons, and men - it is I.





Islam / Sufism Quote n°3799 | 
Mathnawi; Winfield, 1898 

   




D on't laugh like children! You do not understand my state.
Read a chapter from me, unfold a secret from her [the creative Force]:
I am drunk of that wine forbidden by the lawgivers;
I am drunk of the wine of oneness; I am free of color and smell.
I am oblivious to this place; my mind is elsewhere;





Islam / Sufism Quote n°3798 | 
Divan-i Shams; Winfield, 1898 

   




T he universe was not there; only I was. Adam wasn't them only I was. That light of unity was "I"; I am the Everlasting, and I am the prophet Elias. -The universe gets its light from me; Adam took his form from me; I am the All-Wise, the Knower, the Judge of all judges.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3797 | 
Divan-i Shams; Winfield, 1898 

   




O Thou Soul who art free of "we" and "I,"
0 Thou who art the subtle Essence of the souls of men and women,
When a man or woman unites with Thee, Thou art that One; when their individuality is obliterated, Thou alone art.
Thou didst contrive this "I" and this "we" only so that Thou mightest play the game of worship with Thyself,
So that all "Is" and "Thous" should become one Soul, immersed at last in the one Beloved.





Islam / Sufism Quote n°3796 | 
Mathnawi; Winfield, 1898 

   




A ll that is other than the true "I" must be slain.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3795 | 
Mathnawi; Winfield, 1898 

   




E xperience shows that the spirit is nothing but awareness. Whoever has greater awareness has greater spirit… When the spirit becomes greater and passes beyond all bounds, the spirits of all things become obedient to it.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3336 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, pp. 31-32, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




K now that the World of Unity lies in the other direction from the senses. If you want Oneness, go in that direction!




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3335 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 251, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




W hat can I say about the stations of those who have attained union except that they are infinite, while the stations of the travelers have a limit? The limit of the travelers is union. But what could be the limit of those in union? -- that is, that union which cannot be marred by separation. No ripe grape ever again becomes green, and no mature fruit ever again becomes raw.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3334 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 247, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




H ow could the rays of God's light fit into the heart? Yet when you search you will find it there, not from the point of view of containment such that it could be said that the light is in that place. You will find it through that place …




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3333 | 
Signs of the Unseen: The Discourses of Jalaluddin Rumi, p. 173, Trans. W.M. Thackston, Jr. Putney, Vermont: Threshold Books, 1994 

   




H is ego falls like a battered wall. He unites with God, alive, but emptied of Nasuh (i.e. himself).




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3332 | 
The Essential Rumi, p. 163, Trans. Coleman Barks with John Moyne. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1995 

   




O h, there is many a trusty, martyred ego that has died in this world but walks about like the living. The brigand spirit has died, but its sword remains in the hand of the warrior. The sword is the same sword, but the man is not the same man -- the form confuses you. Once the ego has been transformed, the sword -- the body -- is held in the hand of the Bountiful Lord's craftsmanship.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3331 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, pp. 185-186, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




W hat is it to know something of God? Burn inside that presence. Burn up.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3330 | 
The Essential Rumi, p. 62, Trans. Coleman Barks with John Moyne. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1995 

   




L ove is for vanishing into the sky.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3329 | 
The Essential Rumi, p. 107, Trans. Coleman Barks with John Moyne. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1995 

   




T o deem oneself exalted is to claim copartnership with God. As long as you have not died and become living through Him, you are a rebel seeking a realm for your copartnership. When you have become living through Him, you are indeed He. That is utter Oneness, how could that be copartnership?




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3328 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, pp. 183-184, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




W ith God, two I's cannot find room. You say I and He says I. Either you die before Him, or let Him die before you; then duality will not remain. But it is impossible for Him to die, either subjectively or objectively, since He is the Living God, the Undying (Koran 25:58). He possesses such Gentleness that were it possible, He would die for you so that duality might vanish. But since it is impossible for Him to die, you die, so that He may manifest Himself to you and duality may vanish.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3327 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 191, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




G od calls, … "Come out of your selves quickly, or else every instant will be a shackle, every two paces snares and traps." Come out of ourselves? But to where? To selflessness! Selflessness is meaning, meaning! Self-consciousness is names, names!




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3326 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 174, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




I have been so naughted in Thy Love's existence that my nonexistence is a thousand times sweeter than my existence.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3325 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 298, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




G od does not speak to everyone, just as the kings of this world do not speak to every weaver. They appoint ministers and representatives so that through them people may find the way to them. In the same way God has singled out certain servants so that everyone who seeks Him may find Him within them. All the prophets have come for this reason. Only they are the Way.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3324 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 122, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




D o not break with the prophet of your time! Do not rely on your own skills and footsteps! Though you be a lion, if you travel the Path without a guide, you will be a self-seer, astray and contemptible.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3323 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 139, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




I f you want dervishhood, spiritual poverty, and emptiness, you must be friends with a sheikh. Talking about it, reading books, and doing practices don't help. Soul receives from soul that knowing.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3322 | 
The Essential Rumi, p.255, Trans. Coleman Barks with John Moyne. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1995 

   




E ven if you do not reach His Essence, yet His remembrance has numerous effects upon you. You actualize tremendous benefits by invoking Him.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3321 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 158, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




H is Name is the Spirit of spirits, His invocation the ruby of the mines. His love is in the soul, He is both our refuge and our hope. When I mention His Name, good fortune arrives; then the Name becomes the Named -- without duality, without hesitation.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3320 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 159, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




L et go of thought and bring it not into your heart, for you are naked and thought is an icy wind. You think in order to escape from torment and suffering, but your thinking is torment's fountainhead. Know that the bazaar of God's Making is outside of thought…




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3319 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 256, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




S o behead your selfhood, oh warrior! Become selfless and annihilated, like a dervish!




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3318 | 
the Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 188, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




M an is like a bow held in the hand of God's Power. God employs him in various tasks. In reality, the agent is God, not the bow. The bow is an instrument and a means. But for the sake of the maintenance of the world it is unaware and heedless of God. Tremendous indeed is the bow that becomes aware of the Bowman's hand!




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3317 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, pp. 58-59, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




C oncern yourself not with the thief-like ego and its business. Whatever is not God's work is nothing, nothing!




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3316 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 33, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




F or those who realize that everything is from God, everything is the same.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3315 | 
Signs of the Unseen: The Discourses of Jalaluddin Rumi, p. 58, Trans. W.M. Thackston, Jr. Putney, Vermont: Threshold Books, 1994 

   




P overty is not for the sake of hardship. No, it is there because nothing exists but God… Poverty unlocks the door -- what a blessed key!




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3314 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 188, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




B rother, stand the pain. Escape the poison of your impulses. The sky will bow to your beauty, if you do.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3313 | 
The Essential Rumi, p. 62, Trans. Coleman Barks with John Moyne. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1995 

   




W hat sort of Beloved is He? As long as a single hair of love for yourself remains, He will not show His Face… You must be completely repelled by yourself and the world and be your own self's enemy… So when our religion resides in a person's heart, it stays right there until it takes his heart to God and separates it from everything unworthy.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3312 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 215, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




S ome one asked, "What is the Way?" I said, "This way is to abandon desires."

Oh lover of the King! Know that your way is to seek the pleasure of that Generous Lord. When you seek the Beloved's desire and pleasure, seeking your own desire is forbidden.





Islam / Sufism Quote n°3311 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, pp. 216-217, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




A ll the hopes, desires, loves, and affections that people have for different things -- fathers, mothers, friends, heavens, the earth, gardens, palaces, sciences, works, food, drink -- the saint knows that these are desires for God and all those things are veils. When men leave this world and see the King without these veils, then they will know that all were veils and coverings, that the object of their desire was in reality that One Thing… They will see all things face to face.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3310 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 201, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




I n a human being is such a love, a pain, an itch, a desire that, even if he were to possess a hundred thousand worlds, he would not rest or find peace. People work variously at all sorts of callings, crafts, and professions, and they learn astrology and medicine, and so forth, buth they are not at peace because what they are seeking cannot be found. The beloved is called dilaram because the heart finds peace through the beloved. How then can it find peace through anything else?




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3309 | 
Signs of the Unseen: The Discourses of Jalaluddin Rumi, p. 66, Trans. W.M. Thackston, Jr. Putney, Vermont: Threshold Books, 1994 

   




D esire for the world has deprived man of the Object of his desire.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3308 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 36, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




N ow some men have followed the intellect to such an extent that they have become totally angels and sheer light. They are the prophets and saints…

In some men sensuality has dominated their intellects, so that they have totally assumed the properties of animals.

And some men have remained struggling. They are that group who feel inside themselves a suffering, a pain, a distress, a longing. They are not satisfied with their lives. These are the believers. The saints are waiting to bring the believers into their own houses and make them like themselves. And the satans are also waiting to drag them down toward themselves to the lowest of the low (Koran 95:5).





Islam / Sufism Quote n°3307 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 86, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




T he intellect and the ego, are very necessary for the manifestation of good and evil. Day and night in this abode of dust these two necessary beings are in war and altercation. The {ego} always desires the necessities of the household -- reputation, bread, food, and position… The ego sometimes displays humility and sometimes seeks leadership to remedy its plight.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3306 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 165, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




T he intellect is luminous and seeks the good. How then can the dark ego vanquish it? The ego is in its own bodily home, and your intellect is a stranger; At its doorstep, a dog is an awesome lion.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3305 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 35, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




W ho knows his soul knows his Lord.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3304 | 
Signs of the Unseen: The Discourses of Jalaluddin Rumi, p. 59, Trans. W.M. Thackston, Jr. Putney, Vermont: Threshold Books, 1994 

   




T his ego is hell, and hell is a dragon not diminished by oceans of water. It drinks down the seven seas, yet the heat of that manburner does not become less. It makes a morsel out of a world and gulps it down. Its belly keeps shouting: Is there any more?




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3303 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, pp. 89-90, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




M an is called a rational animal; therefore, he is two things. What feeds his animality in this world is passion and desire; but the food for his essential part is knowledge, wisdom and the vision of God. Man's animal nature avoids the Real, and his human nature flies from this world. One of you is an unbeliever, and another of you is a believer. (Koran 64:2).




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3302 | 
Signs of the Unseen: The Discourses of Jalaluddin Rumi, p. 59, Trans. W.M. Thackston, Jr. Putney, Vermont: Threshold Books, 1994 

   




I have lived on the lip of insanity, wanting to know reasons, knocking on a door. It opens. I've been knocking from the inside!




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3301 | 
The Essential Rumi, p. 281, Trans. Coleman Barks with John Moyne. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1995 

   




I ntellect is good and desirable to the extent it brings you to the King's door. Once you have reached His door, then divorce the intellect! From this time on, the intellect will be to your loss and a brigand. When you reach Him, entrust yourself to Him! You have no business with the how and the wherefore. Know that the intellect's cleverness all belongs to the vestibule. Even if it possesses the knowledge of Plato, it is still outside of the palace.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3300 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 222, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




Y ou seek knowledge from books. What a shame! …
You are an ocean of knowledge hidden in a dew drop…





Islam / Sufism Quote n°3299 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 64, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




S omeone was saying: "I have studied so many branches of knowledge and mastered so many concepts; yet I still do not know which concept in man will abide forever. I have not discovered it yet."

If it could be known by means of words, there would be no need for the annihilation of individual existence or for so much suffering. You must strive to rid yourself of your own individuation before you can know that thing which will remain.





Islam / Sufism Quote n°3298 | 
Signs of the Unseen: The Discourses of Jalaluddin Rumi, p. 203, Trans. W.M. Thackston, Jr. Putney, Vermont: Threshold Books, 1994 

   




T hat intellectual warp and woof keeps you wrapped in blindness.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3297 | 
The Essential Rumi, p. 66, Trans. Coleman Barks with John Moyne. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1995 

   




H is mental questionings form the barrier. His physical eyesight bandages his knowing. Self-consciousness plugs his ears.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3296 | 
The Essential Rumi, p. 256, Trans. Coleman Barks with John Moyne. New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1995 

   




A ll of these are symbols -- I mean that the other world keeps coming into this world. Like cream hidden in the soul of milk, No-place keeps coming into place. Like intellect concealed in blood and skin, the Traceless keeps entering into traces. And from beyond the intellect, beautiful Love comes dragging its skirts, a cup of wine in its hand. And from beyond Love, that indescribable One who can only be called That keeps coming.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3295 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 197, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




A ll creatures, day and night, make manifestation of God. Some of them know what they are doing and are aware of their manifesting, while others are unaware. However it may be, God's manifestation is confirmed.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3294 | 
Signs of the Unseen: The Discourses of Jalaluddin Rumi, p. 184, Trans. W.M. Thackston, Jr. Putney, Vermont: Threshold Books, 1994 

   




W e and our existences are nonexistences. Thou art Absolute Existence showing Thyself as perishable things.




Islam / Sufism Quote n°3293 | 
The Sufi Path of Love: The Spiritual Teachings of Rumi, p. 24, Trans. William C. Chittick. Albany, N.Y.: State University of New York Press, 1983 

   




W onder from these thousand of "me's",
which one am I?
Listen to my cry, do not drown my voice
I am completely filled with the thought of you.
Don't lay broken glass on my path
I will crush it into dust.
I am nothing, just a mirror in the palm of your hand,
reflecting your kindness, your sadness, your anger.
If you were a blade of grass or a tiny flower
I will pitch my tent in your shadow.
Only your presence revives my withered heart.
You are the candle that lights the whole world
and I am an empty vessel for your light.





Islam / Sufism Quote n°3143 | 
"Hidden Music" - Maryam Mafi & Azima Melita Kolin
