“Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again , come , come.” Rumi

Hate no one...

Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib -may God be pleased with him-; the beloved cousin of my beloved prophet Mohammad-prayer and peace of Allah be upon him and his family- is considered to be the "gate to the city of -Ilm-knowledge" -The city of knowledge being the prophet himself-  by all Islamic schools of thought. He understood the real message of Islam; the religion that is unfortunately hijacked by mercenaries whose only aim is to feed sectarianism !
 With all these supposedly "scholars" asking for "sacred war" against other Muslims, this saying by Imam Ali is here to remind us that the problem is not in or with Islam...It is indeed with many of those who pretend to talk in its name.
Imam Ali said:


“Hate no one, no matter how much they've wronged you. Live humbly, no matter how wealthy you become. Think positively, no matter how hard life is. Give much, even if you've been given little. Keep in touch with the ones who have forgotten you, and forgive who has wronged you, and do not stop praying for the best for those you love.”
