some muslim wisdom for today

Tuesday, 19 December 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments


When the ocean of Mercy begins to foam,
even stones drink the water of life.
The face of earth becomes lush green,
the dead wood springs to life,
the lamb and the wolf together play,
the despairing becomes valiant and strong.

-Rumi, “Mathnawi”

I wonder if Ivone Gebara [only b/c I’m reading a paper on her work] would view this Muslim wisdom as “Relatedness” and a move agaisnt the traditional understanding of evil and salvation.
