Microcosm of the Universe!

دواؤك فيك وما تشعر *** وداؤك منك وما تُبصر

و تحسب أنّك جرم صغير *** وفيك انطوى العالم الأكبر

الإمام علي بن أبي طالب عليه السلام

Your cure is within you, yet you do not sense it!

Your sickness is from you, yet you do not see it!

You consider youself a small body;

Yet encapsulated within you is the entire universe!

Imam ‘Ali b. Abi Talib (‘alayhi wa ‘ala nabiyyina as-salam)

from Habib ‘Ali al-Jifri, on the importance of purifying one’s soul.

    • as-salamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatu Llah, sayyidati al-karimah!

      ma sha’ Allah, exactly what came to my mind! a true inheritor of the Beloved Mustafa salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa alihi wa sallam, in both the outward and inward – Imam al-‘Arifin as al-Ghumari called him, ‘alayhi as-salam… and shared by a truly amazing descendant of his, hafizahu Llah wa nafa’a bih.

      keep me in your duas, sayyidati,
      was-salam
