'Truly, the lover towards the one he loves is obedient...'

Friday, 30 July 2010 by PD , under

There are some words that you read and they imprint in your mind, becoming unforgettable. The following are a few lines of poetry - or should I call it a couplet? - that I read a long time ago but they seem to have imprinted in my mind.

تعصي الإله وأنت تُظهر حبهّ***هذا لعمرك في الفعال بديع


لو كان حبك صادقا لأطعته***إن المحب لمن يحب مطيع


  ''You disobey God while you make apparent that you love Him,

This, by my life, in analogy is a marvel.
If your love was truthful you would obey Him,
Truly, the lover towards the one he loves is obedient."



I've heard different versions of who this is by and I'm not really bothered about the author. However the words ring true, especially the last two lines. The human nature and emotion of love and the acts that surround it are accurately depicted. It is common knowledge that when one is in love they try their utmost to make their beloved happy by doing all those things they want you to do. We claim to love God, but do our actions portray this love that should exceed all love?
