Wonderful Bargainer

Photograph from Mark Tucker's Journal - My Day With Ayesha Nur: Sufi and Candlemaker

Who will loan Allah a beautiful loan 
so He may multiply it for him or her
many times over?

~ The Quran ~

Our Beloved is a wonderful bargainer!

Whenever we pay a small price
for something that is dear to Him,
for something that pleases Him -

He throws upon us unbelievable dazzling gifts
thousand times more precious than ours.

In fact His gifts are so infinitely precious
than our earthly dusty offerings -

that true lovers blush
looking at their inability to match
the grand generosity of the Most Magnanimous One.

'Is there anything, anything on earth that may please the Beloved?'
- sigh rises from the heart of a Dervish.

Reply soon arrives at the heart of her heart.

Listen to this glad tidings!

'The tears of my lover that drops out of
My Remembrance, My Yearning -
is dearer to Me than all the riches of My Kindgom.'
Whoever loves to meet Allah, Allah loves to meet the person.

For the friends soon shall be in the Presence
at their real Home.

Haven't you heard what the Master conveyed,
that the Kingdom is near.

~ S. M. A. ~

In my Father's house are many mansions: I go to prepare a place for you.
- Jesus, John 14

And whoever is protected from the stinginess of his soul - it is those who will be the successful. If you loan Allah a goodly loan (spending selflessly for the good pleasure of Allah in charity), He will multiply it for you and forgive you. And Allah is Most Ready to appreciate and to reward, Most Forbearing. Knower of the unseen and the Witness, the Exalted in Might, the Wise. - The Final Testament 64:16-18

Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned. - The Final Testament 2:245

So recite as much of the Quran as may be easy, and establish Salat (prayer) and give Zakat (poor due), and lend to Allah a goodly loan, and whatever good you send before you for yourselves, you will certainly find it with Allah, better and greater in reward. And seek Forgiveness of Allah. Verily, Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most-Merciful. - The Final Testament 73:20
