Perplexed at His Beauty


Bismillah.

Aaaalllaaahh....I don't know where to start. I am just perplexed at the manifestation of Al Jamil. You know they say a picture is worth a thousand words, I wished I could just show you some photos which to me depict the beauty of His deen. It's hard to translate it into words. It's like saying I love you while knowing it's more than those words you feel.

Islam is beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Imagine tariqa thriving in cities such as Sao Paulo. Imagine a thirty something handsome man living a harmonious life with his two gorgeous wives and three angelical daughters. Imagine them living in their own self-sustained farm. Imagine them spending a few days of the week in khalwa doing zikr. Imagine them starting to see the fruits of their dakwah as they slowly begin to spread the deen to the Brazilians. Imagine such traditional and genuine Islamic living, in a country known for her endless fiesta, beach babes and sultry female soccer fans.

I don't think any Muslims having a PhD in theology, students of the orientalist gurus, can do something like that. Something as commendable as that is only possible with the barakah of a tariqa guru whose lineage traces back to Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. That beautiful slice of the kernel of Islam, to me, is one sweet fruit of the trees planted by the great Shaykh Ahmad Al-Alawi (1869 - 1934).

May Allah make the Al-Alawi community in Sao Paulo prosper further. May Allah unite the various tariqa and tha'ifah around the world and make us cling strongly onto His rope.
Ameen.

    And its amazing, beautiful, and a great N'imah to know someone like you, a kind, intelligent and pretty girl, with so intense and great love to our Din, to our beloved Rasul (Salla Llahu aleyhi wa Sallam), and to the Awlia.
