Radiance of delight


I thought Lisan al-Din should just be quiet but merry today,
so I looked for a picture that says joy
and found this lovely...lovely...

"Among the Sufi's noble traits of character is freshness of face, cheerfulness, and joviality.
On the pages of the Sufi's face one can see reflected the effects of that paradisical youthful viridity which tomorrow, on Judgment Day, shall be evident and manifest...
"You will see in their faces the radiance of delight" (Qur'an 83:24)
