If you wish to be a mine of jewels, open the deep ocean within your heart . . . Eğer mücevher madeni olmak istiyorsan, Kalbinin içindeki derin okyanusu aç . . . Rumi

Be empty of worrying.
Think of who created thought!
Why do you stay in prison
When the door is so wide open?

Endişelenmeyi bırak.
Düşünceleri kimin yarattığını düşün.
Kapı sonuna kadar açıkken,
Neden hala zindanda oturuyorsun?

Rumi

Close some doors. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they no longer lead somewhere …. Bugün bazı kapıları kapayın. Gururunuzdan dolayı değil, artık hayatınıza uygun olmadıkları için … Paulo Coelho

With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate, and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity.”

Cesaretle, risk almaya, merhametli olmak için güce ve mütevazi olmak için bilgeliğe sahip olmaya cesaret edeceksin. Cesaret, bütünlüğün temelidir.”

Humanity is so adaptable, my mother would say. Truly amazing, what people can get used to, as long as there are a few compensations.

İnsanoğlu her şeye alışır, derdi annem. Yerini dolduracak birkaç şey bulduğu sürece, insanların nelere alışabildikleri gerçekten şaşırtıcı.

Margaret Atwood

Allah’s blessings come as a surprise but how much you receive depends on how much your heart believes.

Appreciate what you have, and do not think of what you do not have. What you have is from Allah’s Blessing, and what you do not have is from Allah’s wisdom.

“Four things support the world: the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valor of the brave.

Whoever Allah wants good for him, he puts them to test. he puts them through difficulties; like a diamond or gold that has to be burnt after which anything bad from it is removed so that what you have is the pure diamond or the pure gold.

Happy is the man who avoids hardship, but how fine is the man who is afflicted and shows endurance.

The cure for ignorance is to question.”
(The Prophet  Muhammad صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم)

If you will carry on the way, guided by human, you will find a HOPELESS END.

But if you will carry on the way guided by Allah, you will find an ENDLESS HOPE.

If the oppressor has cruelty, the oppressed has Allah. They may torment the people today, but tomorrow will come the Day of Judgment .

Zalimin zulmü varsa mazlumun da Allah’ı var. Bugün halka cevretmek kolay, yarın Hakk’ın divanı var.

My heart is so small, it’s almost invisible. How can You place such big sorrows in it? “Look,” He answered, “your eyes are even smaller, yet they behold the world.”

Rumi

Kalbim çok küçük, neredeyse görünmez. Böyle büyük acıları nasıl yerleştirebilirsin? ” Bak,” dedi. ” gözlerin daha küçük, yine de dünyayı görürler.”

Mevlana

Search the Darkness . . . Karanlığı ara . . . by Rumi

Posted in Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi with tags , , , , , on 21/03/2018 by Semra Polat

Sit with your friends, don’t go back to sleep.
Don’t sink like a fish to the bottom of the sea.
Surge like an ocean, don’t scatter yourself like a storm.

Life’s waters flow from darkness.
Search the darkness, don’t run from it.
Night travelers are full of light, and you are too:
Don’t leave this companionship.

Be a wakeful candle in a golden dish,
don’t slip into the dirt like quicksilver.
The moon appears for night travelers,
Be watchful when the moon is full.

-Rumi

Geri uykuya dalma ve dostlarla otur.
Balık gibi denizin dibine çökme.
Okyanus gibi yüksel, fırtına gibi dağılıp gitme.

Ab-ı hayatın kaynağı karanlıktır.
Karanlığı ara ve ondan kaçma.
Gece yolcuları ışıldar,
Aynı senin gibi; bu dostluğu terk etme.

Altın kasede ışıldayan mum ol,
Toz toprak gibi bir anda parlayıp yitiverme.
Ay hicabını gece yolcularına açar,
Gözün gönlün açık olsun ki dolunayı görebil.

– Mevlana

”… And He is the Forgiving, the Loving . . . Ve O, Gafur’dur (mağfiret edendir), Vedûd’dur (çok sevendir) . . . (Surah al-Buruj, 14)

A person’s most useful asset is not the head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, an ear ready to listen and a hand willing to help.

PROMISES OF ALLAH TO THE BELIEVERS:

1. But, We have certainly tried those before them, and Allah will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars. [Quran, 29: 3]

2. “And if only the people of the cities had believed and feared Allah, We would have opened upon them blessings from the heaven and the earth; but they denied [the messengers], so We seized them for what they were earning.” [Quran, 7: 96]

3. “And from wherever you go out [for prayer], turn your face toward al-Masjid al-Haram. And wherever you [believers] may be, turn your faces toward it in order that the people will not have any argument against you, except for those of them who commit wrong; so fear them not but fear Me. And [it is] so I may complete My favor upon you and that you may be guided.” [Quran, 2: 150]

4. “Indeed, there is for him (Shaitaan) no authority over those who have believed and rely upon their Lord.” [Quran, 16: 99]

5. Indeed, those who have believed and done righteous deeds – indeed, We will not allow to be lost the reward of any who did well in deeds. [Quran, 18: 30]

6. “Indeed, Allah has purchased from the believers their lives and their properties [in exchange] for that they will have Paradise. They fight in the cause of Allah, so they kill and are killed. [It is] a true promise [binding] upon Him in the Torah and the Gospel and the Qur’an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? So rejoice in your transaction which you have contracted. And it is that which is the great attainment.” [Quran, 9: 111]

7. “Verily Allah will defend (from ill) those who believe, verily, Allah loves not any that is a traitor to faith or shows ingratitude.” (Quran 22:38)

Allah loves humans but hates their sins. This means that although bad deeds merit Allah’s disapproval and subsequent punishment, they also invoke His infinite mercy on a weak creature whom He has lovingly created, to whom He has given life, and whom He has nurtured with gifts and bounty.
