The universal language of love


The world could use more love and I think the world hasn't heard the language of love spoken so loudly and beautifully for a long time until yesterday 29 April 2011. 

HRH Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

Regardless of faith and religion, we all could relate to the universal values of a genuine love. I therefore, wish to quote some of the beautiful words read from the 'New Revised Standard Version of the Bible' at the wedding of HRH Duke and Duchess of Cambridge:
"Let love be genuine;
hate what is evil,
hold fast to what is good;
love one another with mutual affection;
outdo one another in showing honour."

The world would be a more lovely abode for all if our hearts unite in upholding good values which permeate amongst all humanity. Across the globe we traverse our own unique paths, yet our souls reverberate a universal rhythm of needs for a true sense of togetherness and a sense of belonging. While we walk our lives with that common yearning, there have been times and there will be times when we falter to the tricks and demands of the world. When we are faced with such challenges, it's important that we, hopefully with the help of our loving partners, keep our minds over matter.

So again I could relate to these lines read by James Middleton:
"Do not be conformed to this world,
but be transformed by the renewing of your minds".

The role of our loved ones are especially important in this regard. Because a person falls in love with another for him/her being his/her self, it is crucial that couples devote their life together helping each other stay true to him/herself. Hence, I noted the advice the Bishop of London gave to the newly weds that "Marriage is intended to be a way in which man and woman help each other to become what God meant each one to be, their deepest and truest selves," and that "The more we give of self, the richer we become in soul; the more we go beyond ourselves in love, the more we become our true selves...In marriage we are seeking to bring one another into fuller life."

And may the prayers of the royal couple be answered:
"In the busyness of each day, keep our eyes fixed on what is real and important in life, and help us to be generous with our time and love and energy."

May Allah continue to make us generous with our energy, time and love. May Britain remains a safe place for people of all faiths. Thank you Britain for reminding us of the universality of love.

"Rejoice with those who rejoice."
"Weep with those who weep."
