We must give peace to our brothers and sisters in each circumstance, no matter what path they go on. We must give them peace, so that difficulty does not come to them. Whether they go there, here, here or anywhere, we must only give them peace. Love must be our only form. Love is our path towards our brothers and sisters. Compassion must be our point of unity. This is our union. This is union with God. Our union is compassionate union on the path to God. We have come through the ages together; that is union.
(Shaykh M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen; excerpt from 'Suratur-Rahmah: The Form of Compassion')
'Questions of Life - Answers of Wisdom, Vol.1'
By M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (Author)
In this first of a series of books, titled, Questions and Answers the questions are asked by disciples of a Sufi Master, and answered by this teacher of wisdom, love and compassion.
They asked questions that ranged from the mundane issues of their work lives and relationships, to the spiritual yearnings that were within their hearts. Questions like, Does disease come from God? What should we do when we see faults in others? How can I live a life surrendered to the will of God? and Is it true that no two snowflakes are alike? He explains that there is an answer to every question, and encourages us to bring our questions to light.
