If anyone wants to meet God with love: Verses from Rumi’s Masnavi

If anyone wants to meet God with love: Verses from Rumi’s Masnavi: The meaning of the Hadith

 

“If anyone wants to meet God with love, God too will meet him with love” [This is a Hadith]

Everyone’s death reflects his own qualities, my son: to the enemy of God an enemy, and to the friend of God a friend.

 

In the eyes of the Turk the mirror has a light colour; similarly, in the eyes of the Ethiopian the mirror is dark as an Ethiopian.

Whoever considers death to be beautiful like Joseph gives up his soul in exchange for it; whoever considers it to be like the wolf turns back from the path of right guidance.

 

Your fear of death in fleeing from it is really your fear of yourself heed, o dear soul!

It is your own ugly face, not the countenance of death: your spirit is like a tree, and death is like the leaf.

It has grown from you, whether it is good or evil: every hidden thought of yours, good or bad, is born from within yourself.
