    :s2: Sidi,

    Bro I don't know who the noble poet is!

    Sidi, I did not assume the beloved to be Habiballah saws

    I assumed the Beloved to be Allah Ta'ala

    and I was in an emotioanl trans at that moment, because at that time I just prayed Tahajjud, (it was around 3 in the morning here in Toronto) and it was snowing outside my building and I could see the lights shining in the snow and it was so beautiful, I cannot describe it!

    It was an amaizing site!

    Just couldn't get my eyes off it!

    I just remembered how far I have been from Allah Ta'ala!

    so I cried for Allah's Love!

    and He Almighty is He, gave me a gift immediately!

    I received a call from my father, who lives 6000 miles away from me!

    and he told me something I needed to hear!

    your bro

  2. Brother Wadood, :s1:

    why the tears bro? but i can see you might be crying due to the beauty of this verse...

    The poet (for the non-Farsi speakers) says, "One glance from the Beloved*--is worth the price of my imaan!"

    * i.e. Our Beloved Master Sayyidina wa Habibina wa Mawlana wa Shafi'yina Rasool Allah SAWS!

    ps. Sidi Wadood, do you know who this poet is?

    Ya Allah Sidi!!!

  4. Allahu Akbar!

    A Farsi poet has said about this divine beauty:

    Yek nigah-i-naaz-i-jaanaan qeemat-i-imaan-i-man!

    Sheikh Ibn al Qayyim al Jawziyya al Dimashqi al Hanbali said, commenting upon this hadith al shareef:

    ''The phrase 'Allah is beautiful and loves beauty,' includes the beautiful clothing which was asked about in the same hadeeth. It is included by way of generalization, meaning that beauty in all things is what is meant here. "

    In the

    Sahih of Syedina Imam e Muslim al Neyshapouri radziAllah ta'ala 'anhu

    it says: "Allah is good and only accepts that which is good."

    In the

    Sunan Shareef of Syedina Imam Muhammad al Tirmidzi al Khurasani radziAllahu ta'ala 'anhu

    it says:

    "Allah loves to see the effects of His blessing on His slave.''

    In the

    Masnad al Shareef of Syedina Imam Ahmed ibn Hanbal al Shaybani al Marwazi al Baghdadi radziAllahu ta'ala 'anhu

    It is reported that Syedina Abu Ahwas al Jashami radziAllahu ta'ala 'anhu said:

    The Prophet saws saw me wearing old, tattered clothes, and

    asked me,

    "Do you have any wealth?"

    I said, "Yes."

    He said,

    "What kind of wealth?"

    I said, "All that Allah has given me of camels and sheep."

    He said,

    "Then show the generous blessings that He has given you."

    From Syedina 'Abdullah ibn Mas'ud The Companion The Meccan The Kufi :ra:

    O Close Companion of Habibullah saws salam 'alayka

    The Prophet saws said

    "No one will enter paradise who has an atom's weight of pride in his heart"

    A man said "What if a man likes his clothes to look good and his shoes to look good?"

    He saws said

    "Allah is Beautiful and loves Beauty, prides mean denying the truth and looking down on people"

    Sahih of Syedina Imam 'Asakir ud Din Muslim al Qushayri al Neyshapouri

    radziAllahu ta'ala 'anhu
