"Why do we need to justify God's existence? He exists.  We need to justify our own existence." - Hamza Yusuf

Running from you,
Unsure of what’s to come.
I can’t keep falling,
teasing harm.
Can’t stop spinning in a garden
of hope
and untouched petals of dreamflowers.
Wake me up if you must,
For I don’t know if I’m stuck in the middle.
The road won’t end,
I’ve been running for days,
Is this a sign that I’m meant to stay?

"The people of this world are like the three butterflies in front of a candle's flame.  
The first one went closer and said: I know about love.
The second one touched the flame lightly with his wings and said: I know how love's fire can burn.
The third one threw himself into the heart of the flame and was consumed.
He alone knows what true love is."

-came across this when watching the movie Bab'Aziz
