When My Beloved Appears

When my Beloved appears,
With what eye do I see Him?

With His eye, not with mine,
For none sees Him except Himself.

... Muhyiddin ibn 'Arabi

"My servant ceases not to draw nearer to Me with supererogatory devotions until I love him, when I love him I become his eyesight with which he sees, his hearing with which he hears, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot on which he walks.When he asks of Me, I grant him; and when he seeks My protection, I protect him."

This Hadith has caused an unusual unsettling feeling in my heart.I can't decipher His message.
I du'a for respite and guidance this remaining nights of Ramadhan.

We have done this hadith on various occasions in various classes and lectures which I gave.

But, in any case, amin to your doa - and send it too for someone who is far away :)
