Love, what is it?
What is Love?
is it a mental concept;
is it an inner feeling;
is it an instinct;
is it a desire;
is it a psychological episode;
is it an entity hidden in physical forms-in males, females, children, pets;
Know that for many lovers, one of those notions may be the answer, then such form of love would not go beyond those perceived beloveds.
But for others, the answer is found way beyond those worldly notions and the worldly perceived beloveds,
and is hidden in the secret codes,
of the orphan’s cry;
of the pain of the hungry;
of the agony of the sick;
of the suffering of the oppressed;
of the singing of the birds; etc..
When the heart is able to unlock these secret codes then the gate of the Garden, of the Beloved, is open.
And suddenly all of these painful and mysterious cries would sound to the ear of the heart as the most beautiful songs the heart have ever heard,
because the composer is the Beloved.
“And they feed, for the love of Allah, the indigent, the orphan, and the captive-Quran76:8”
وَيُطْعِمُونَ الطَّعَامَ عَلَى حُبِّهِ مِسْكِينًا وَيَتِيمًا وَأَسِيرًا (76:8
