Hu is the most exclusive of all identifiers.

Hu is a name that although you pronounce by the mouth, yet the gatekeepers of the heart i.e. the tongue and the lips have no business with IT.

Hu comes not from the tongue’s tip, IT originates from the midst of the soul and the depth of the heart and innermost core of the bosom.

Hu must glide up from the unfathomable depth of the heart, and do so by a cleansed Nafs (Self) from a cleansed heart, from a purified Sirr (Divine Observatory), from deep within the inmost core of the human, destined for the Sanctified Divine Court—sprint gushing and gashing like the blinding lightening like the raging gales:

Nothing coalesces with Hu while Hu immingles with nothing.

If you glance at the realm of power the Divine Throne renders you as a tiny particle, and yet if you view the realm of wisdom a tiny particle makes you into a throne!

To be with That Divine Beloved is most felicitous when having nothing, and without That Beloved even having it all is most unpleasant.

Whomsoever is veiled against That Beloved resides within the source of all afflictions, even though might be in possession of the keys of all cosmos’ treasures; whomsoever gravitates (Majzub) by the grace of That Beloved resides within the source of all endowments even if has no bread for the night.


Ey Shabnam-e Bihisht (O Eden’s Dew)

When you go by the sea, what catches your eye first and foremost? The beach? The crowd? The seagulls? No, some resistless force of gravity attracts your attention to the sea, as a sole source of attraction, while with mind body and soul you POINT at it!

Place a toddler on the sands, and s/he uncontrollably POINTS at the sea, the child that knows no language with most cognitive faculties still in development stretches the arm and the finger towards the sea.

Pointing towards the direction of Hu is a fundamental of the nature.

Cosmos and all that you see and specially your Self were engineered to point at Hu, for IT is to be pointed at, at all times, at all circumstances.

112:1. Qul Huwa  is complete, the epitome of perfection. The rest is there because you had questions.

قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ

2:115. Whichever direction you turn, there is the Wajh (Divine Face) of Allah.

 وَلِلَّهِ الْمَشْرِقُ وَالْمَغْرِبُ فَأَيْنَمَا تُوَلُّوا فَثَمَّ وَجْهُ اللَّهِ

Q: Whichever direction you turn there is a magnificent sea, but why your eyes bedazzled and busied with the sands and seagulls?

A: Because of you! Turning away from this Divine Sea is all about being you.

Del-Barā (O Heart throbbing love):

Take off the goggles of you-ness for this sea’s dive needs nothing of you, as opposed to the dive into the life of this world that requires wearing these goggles, manufactured by all that is you:
