Sufism, or the ‘Way of the Heart‘, is the spiritual aspect of Islam.. Sufism enriches and embraces the journey of our path to God. through the guidance of  its Masters.

The expressions of joy and love from a well-nourished spirit often manifest themselves through music, poetry and visual arts

Allah has angels roaming the earth to find people who are in Remembrance of God.

When they find a circle of such people, they call each other and encompass them in layers up to the first heaven.

Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad(Peace and Blessings be upon him)

There are many people with their eyes open whose hearts are shut.
What do they see?
Matter.
But someone whose love is alert, even if the eyes go to sleep, he or she will be waking up thousands of others.
If you are not one of those light-filled lovers,
restrain your desire-body’s intensity.
Put limits on how much you eat
and how long you lie down.

But if you are awake here in the chest,
sleep long and soundly.

Your spirit will be out roaming and working,
even on the seventh level.

Muhammad says, I close my eyes
and rest in sleep, but my love
never needs rest.
The guard at the gate drowses.
The king stays awake.

You have a king inside who listens
for what delights the soul.

That king’s wakefulness
cannot be described in a poem.
