Headline, May 03 2019/ ''' '' *UNIVERSAL LOVE UNILATERAL '' '''



THE WORLD STUDENTS SOCIETY - most respectfully and lovingly called, !WOW!, the entire universe over, rises to pay respects to every religion and faith and belief in the world. 

LIKE LIGHT - WATER - KNOWLEDGE - Love is another aspect of human life celebrated universally. Love is a passion that has been eulogised by all - in primitive as well as advanced societies.

Poets and prose writers, singers and dancers, mythology narrators all have long sung the beauty of love - its pains and pleasures.

In faith-based traditions, the love of God, with whatever name, and the inspirers of faith, whether prophets or gurus, the devotees have long expressed immense love for them; aspiring to live or die for them.

In Muslim tradition, the love of Allah, followed by that of the Prophet Mohammed [PBUH] have been the core passion in all communities of interpretation. Often this has been expressed through a whole of genre poetry called hamd [Allah's praise] & naat [Prophet's praise] 

Often all these genres have been combined in another genre called qawwali, sung with soul -nourishing passion by a group of singers. In this regard Maulana Rumi's love for his murshid, Shamz Tabriz, is proverbial, and he gives the highest regard to him [Shams] to the extent of dedicating his whole divan to him, called  Divan-i-Shams Tabriz, Allama Iqbal, humbly called himself 'Murad - i-Hindi; of Rumi.

When in intense love, it is often called 'ishq', the culmination of love. 'Ishq' is an Arabic word, which stands for an insect. For humans, metaphorically, it means if one is touched by intoxicating love, it culminates in the 'annihilation' of its beholder.

In a spiritual sense, what this means is that when a person is engulfed with love, he or she becomes 'extinct' as an individual, but at the same time, resurrects itself in the Being, leading to what is known as 'fina fi Allah' baqa bi Allah' [Annihilating in God and becoming Ever-living with Him]. This is also called 'enlightenment' in a mystical sense.

Love also expresses itself in human relations. Human societies are dotted with popular stories of love between two humans, Laila-Majnoon, Heer-Ranjha, Sussi-Pannu are just a few examples.

Similarly, love of human 'service' is also a remarkable story of human history. Men and women have devoted their entire lives to the service of humanity, risking even their own well-being.

Beyond religion and human relations, love expresses itself in many other ways. Love of wisdom [philosophy] and love of exploring and investigating the secrets of the universe have been equally strong passions.

Scientists both in social and hard sciences, researchers and writers often spend much of their lives passionately researching, discovering and writing for the love of discovery and innovations to ease human and animal sufferings.

Thus, love is all pervasive, expressed through numerous ways to quench eternal thirst in human beings to love all those or all that worthy of it.

LOVE is no monopoly of any one culture or nation, faith or community. The language of love, like that of music, and dance, art and architecture, is universal.

In Muslim contexts, the passion of love of discovery is expressed in a complex way. It is a reflection of God's signs [aayaat] spread from heaven to the earth

Sir Sayyed Ahmed Khan appropriately calls the reflection of on the verses of the Quran the word of  God, and the universe as the work of God, supplementing each other.

As the verses of God are loved so is the work of God, and the living verses of God, which the verbal verses refer to.

As one gets 'enlightenment' through 'meditation', so does one through 'contemplation'. What a mystic sees is perceived by one who contemplates.

''Behold! In the creation of the heaven and the earth, and the alternation of Night and Day, there are indeed Signs for men of understanding.

Humans who celebrate the praises of Allah and contemplate the wonders of creation in the heavens and the earth - with the thought:
''Our Lord! Not for naught hast Though created all this! Glory to Thee!.....'' [3; 190-191]

This verse gives a powerful message towards remembering God as worship and contemplating on the nature - the living verses of God, - as practical worship, the twin ways of loving and celebrating God's creation, and through it, God himself.

The Honor and Serving of the best universal passion on Love and Thinking, continues. The World Students Society thanks scholar Jan-E-Alam Khaki.

With respectful dedication to Mankind, Leaders, Grandparents, Parents, Students, Professors and Teachers of the world. See Ya all prepare for Great Global Elections on The World Students Society : wssciw.blogspot.com and Twitter - !E-WOW! : The Ecosystem 2011:
