The Great Love is Always Listening

the mystic rose, Technology of the Soul

a simple Sufi Meditation and seed for Remembrance -

The phrase to be recited, either aloud or silently in one's heart:

Sami Allahu Liman Hamidah

and the meaning to be resonated within the phrase is:

The Great Love is always Listening.

About the phrase:

The Arabic phrase "Sami Allahu Liman Hamidah" was taught to the blessed Messenger as part of the salaat (namaz, the islamic yoga) in his celestial journey or ascension (miraj). The Islamic prayer has within it the various movements, such as standing, bowing, prostration and sitting straight - all the ways how human beings have adored the Divine from time immemorial. Inherent symbolism is that we face God in every aspect of living and being, in every movement and in every stillness we strive to become conscious of the Divine.

In salaat when one moves from bowing to standing again, one says this phrase "Sami Allahu Liman Hamidah." The phrase if literally translated means: “Allah listens to the one who praises Him", or "Allah respond to the one who adore", or "(All) Praise is Absorbed in Divine Listening."

Those who cling to the world,
Endeavor to free them;
Those who are free, praise.
- Mechthild of Magdeburg

There are many mysteries hidden in the act of praising the Divine and to say the least, when one praise the Divine, one is partaking in the most fundamental yet exalted action of every particles of the cosmos - which is always exalting and praising the Divine by the Very Reality with which they come into existence, are sustained and in which they ultimately must return, annihilated and stripped off their separateness.

When one remember to praise the Divine, one is in reality paying attention and moving towards the Perfection in which one is created. The praise for the great love is a praise of our own hidden reality waiting to be known.

The meditative verse is translated as "The Great Love is Always Listening" because the Divine Attribute as-Sami, the One Who listen is an act of love. The remembrance that The Great Love is always Listening is also a reflection and reminder of our own role that we must also be ready to hear the call of others in this river of life.

So if you can and when you are reminded during any part of the day or night, say, "Sami Allahu Liman Hamidah" and know in your heart of Heart that The Great Love is Always Listening.

May all our heart's longing be listened and be answered by That Great Love Who is One, without partner, for Love is indivisible.

God Most High, the Great Love, Lover and Beloved brings forth the creation
and says, "Entrust Me with your secrets.

If you do not do this, then look toward Me.

If you do not do this, then listen to Me.

If you do not do this then wait at My door.

If you do none of this, at least tell Me your needs."
