Love of God and Love of God’s Creation - Different or the Same Thing [Quote - 206]

Published Categorised as Quote-Unquote, Quote-Unquote – Book III (201-300)

“Your journey to God begins when and where your preoccupation with your own self tapers off.

The more ascendant and salient you make yourself in your list of priorities and in your own scheme of things, and the more prominent your child, spouse, job or business is in the calculus of your life, the slower and more arduous and fitful your journey to God and the farther and more uncertain your destination.

Unless, of course, you master the true Islamic way of doing things under which you love God first, and foremost, and unconditionally, and above all else, and then you compress and derive all your worldly loves, whether it is your love for your family, career or even yourself, from that single most dominant and all-consuming passion in your life – Love of God.

That total and single-minded devotion for God then validates, legitimizes, blesses and consecrates every other lawful love you may have in this world, whether it is love of a child, parent, sport, business, spouse, career, nation, society, culture or place.” (Dr. Pasha)
