Sufism: Sufi Quotes
Asking good questions is half of learning.
Muhammad (Essential Sufism)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A donkey with a load of holy books is still a donkey.
Traditional (Essential Sufism)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Whatever you have in your mind - forget it;
Whatever you have in your hand - give it;
Whatever is to be your fate - face it!
Abu Sa'id (Essential Sufism)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For every sin but the killing of Time there is forgiveness.
Traditional (Essential Sufism)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If someone remarks: "What an excellent man you are!" and this pleases you more than his saying, "What a bad man you are!" know that you are still a bad man.
 Sufyan al Thawri (Essential Sufism)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A seeker went to ask a sage for guidance on the Sufi way.
The sage counseled,
"if you have never trodden the path of love, go away and fall in love;
then come back and see us."Jami (Essential Sufism)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The poet Hafiz wrote"The sun never says to the earth,
'You owe me.'

Look what happens with a love like that.
It lights up the whole sky."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"I searched for God and found only myself. I searched for myself and found only God".
Sufi Proverb
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IF words come out of the heart, they will enter the heart, but if they come from the tongue, they will not pass beyond the ears.
Al-Suhrawardi (Essential Sufism)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pray for what you want, but work for the things you need.
Modern Traditional (Essential Sufism)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Beyond our ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing,
there is a field. I'll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase 'each other'
doesn't make sense any more.
Jelaluddin Rumi
in Coleman Barks The Essential Rumi (Haper San Franscisco, 1995,) p. 36
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Thing we tell of can never be found by seeking, yet only seekers find it.
Bayazid Bistami (Essential Sufism, p. 37)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find
all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.

Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You've no idea how hard I've looked for a gift to bring You.
Nothing seemed right. What's the point of bringing gold
to the gold mine, or water to the Ocean. Everything I came
up with was like taking spices to the Orient. It's no good
giving my heart and my soul because you already have these.
So- I've brought you a mirror. Look at yourself and
remember me.
Jalaluddin Rumi
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Happy are those who find fault with themselves instead of finding fault with others.
Muhammad (Essential Sufism)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If men had been forbidden to make porridge of camel's dung, they would have done it, saying that they would not have been forbidden to do it unless there had been some good in it.
Muhammed (Essential Sufism)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What is done for you - allow it to be done.
What you must do yourself - make sure you do it.
Khawwas (Essential Sufism)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enlightenment must come little by little-otherwise it would overwhelm.
Idries Shah
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Whatever we perceive in the world around us tends to reflect who we are and what we care about most deeply, as in the old saying, "When a thief sees a saint, all he sees are his pockets."
Robert Frager, Heart, Self & Soul, The Sufi Psychology of Growth, Balance and Harmony
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We have all had the experience of failing time after time in changing old habits. Then suddenly these old habits lose their hold on us. What was so attractive suddenly becomes unattractive. This is a sign that God has accepted our repentance.
At this point, my sheikh used to say that we are no longer responsible for those old sins. We have truly changed and we are now someone who is not even tempted to commit them.
