A Lover’s Sincerity

Untitled Document

.....................................................................................................................

Hazrat Junaid Baghdadi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) thus says that the true lover of Allah Ta’ala does not consider anything of himself, because he is the lover of Allah.

Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih) relates a story in his Mathnavi Sharief of Laila and the Caliph of Baghdad : The Caliph once told Laila : “You are so ugly and unsightly, yet Majnoon is so madly in love with you. You have no special beauty beyond other beautiful women. Why then is this Majnoon so enamoured by you?”

Laila replied : “If you possessed the eyes of Majnoon, you too would be oblivious of all and everything. O Caliph, you are involved in your vanity and conceit. His love for me has made him ‘Majnoon’ - unconscious of himself, and this unconsciousness on the path of Love is praiseworthy and beneficial whilst consciousness is detrimental.”

Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi (Rahmatullah ‘alaih), in relating various incidents of Laila and Majnoon is, in no way, condoning and approving illicit love, rather, Maulana is expounding, by similitude, the reality of Divine Love. In this narration, he alludes to the sincerity of a lover : For a lover of Allah, there is only Allah. He sees no one else. He hears no one else and he knows no one else. Not even himself.

“Someone enquired from me the nature of Love.
I replied : ‘When you become like me,
You will understand the nature of Love.’”

Those whose minds conjure up a picture of such ardent and deep ‘love’ for film stars, sports ‘heros’ and the supermodels of the world, should understand that this is not love. And it certainly is not love that Allah Ta’ala has placed in their hearts.

This is Ishq-e-Majaazi (sensual love). Such ‘Ishq’ (Love) is ‘Fisq’ (Sin).
