Bless the generous


May Allah bless all those who are generous!
One philantrophist from Europe had offered piles of wonderful books for distribution in this land. One of them is From the Garden of the Mathnawi,  Tears of the Heart. I was speechless with joy when a sister handed them to me. MashaAllah, thank you!

May I quote one saying of Mawlana Rumi which surely refers to people whose hearts are as fertile as theirs: 
"Does a stone blossom even in the spring time?
Be as the soil
so that roses and other flowers
emerge from you
in many colors."

Indeed to please the Almighty means pleasing people. And I am very pleased to have this book in my hand.
May Allah bless all those who are generous! 

"Thus, the poor are the mirror of divine mercy and generosity.
Those who are with Allah or lost in the existence of Allah
are in a state of continuous generosity."
- Rumi, quddisa sirruh, quoted from 'Tears of the Heart'.
