Stop and smell the roses


O son, I wish to stop and smell the roses for a little longer. Allah is ever so generous yet oftentimes we just walk by His garden a little too fast. When we do that, chances are we cannot smell the fragrance. Rumi says:

I wish you a pleasant slow walk in the garden. May the fragrance lift your spirit to the heavenly sphere where there is neither 'you' nor 'I' where all there is, is Hu (He) Who is the Greatest, Allahu Akbar, Allah Hu Haq!
