Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba and Sufism – Live from Brooklyn


Five Pillars


Our Light is Love and It is One,
in prostration we acknowledge there is nothing but Light,
the burdens of these hungry bodies cast aside,
we pray for God alone,
may the ego give itself up to God,
asking for forgiveness so that we may shine again,
We are those who fast from every darkness,
reflecting the Light we serve, bringing gifts to the stars around us.

We are Light Bearers always returning
to the One Source where the Beauty of Immaculate Light is revealed.


To the One Source where the Beauty of Immaculate Light is revealed.

Rassoul by Ami Colle

Ya Allah!  Bless our Prophet Muhammad and his family and his companions and those faithful to him with as much peace as their drops of water in the oceans and drops of rain falling from the sky since time began.  Amin

Love all and hate none….

sufi gathering

“Love all and hate none.
Mere talk of peace will avail you not.
Mere talk of God and religion will not take you far.
Bring out all of the latent powers of your being and reveal the full magnificence of your immortal Self.
Be surcharged with peace and joy, and scatter them where ever you are and wherever you go.
Be a blazing fire of truth, be a beauteous blossom of love and be a soothing balm of peace.
With your spiritual light, dispel the darkness of ignorance;
dissolve the clouds of discord and war and spread goodwill, peace and harmony among the people.

from Muinuddin Chishti’s last talk, in 1233 A.D.
