The Religion of Love


The religion of Love

My heart has become suitable for every form;

A field for gazelles and a Church for priests;

And a house for Idols and Ka’ba for a pilgrim;

And tablets of Torah and pages of Quran.

I embraced the religion of Love, so I go wherever it’s Boats go,

Hence, Love is my religion and faith (1)

To read more about the subject of Love please listen to Dr William Chittick lecture at this site:
