Mathnawi Notes, Listen to the Sound of the Reed


Listen to the sound of the reed.

Love is the reed.
Love longing for Itself. The Primordial Longing.
Love transforming Itself into all possible forms of Being to give love and to receive love.

Light is the reed. The Original Light.
The Light singing the Divine song of Love.
The Light of Allah. The Divine Face. Nur Muhammad.
Nur Muhammad revealing the Heart of Love of hidden Reality, Haqq, the Essence, Hu.

All is created and formed from the Primordial Light.
The first created, directly created by God, is the Light.
Light is the Pen (Qalam), the First Intellect, the Logos, the Word of Praise, Muhammad, sallallahu aleyhi wa sallam.

The Pen is the reed.
It writes on the Tablet (Lawh), the Manifesting Universal Soul.

Divine Beauty is the reed, showing the beauty of all beings.

Alef is the reed, revealing the Lam and Mim

La Ilahe ilallah Muhammad Rasulallah, the Divine Cry, is the reed, the Shofar, the essential secret of Creation.

The reed is the mystic essence of Muhammad, may he be showered in Divine Peace, for whom the Beloved cried, “If not for you I would not have brought about Creation!” This mystic essence is within each of us. It is the ‘fitra’, the perfect form upon which the human being is created. So, for each of us the creation is brought about. Everything exists for the essence within each of us. Listen.

The reed is the Divine Tongue speaking through the life of all beings.
