TRUE LOVE- Intellect is the Beginning , Love is the Ultimate- Allamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi

TRUE LOVE- Intellect is the Beginning , Love is the Ultimate-  Allamah Kaukab Noorani Okarvi


          
  
TRUE LOVE- Intellect is the Beginning  allama kaukab noorani okarvi
True Love
          




Only intense love is the basis of our    relationship with the holy Prophet 

                (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam)


 He is our master, and our slavery has not been bought or purchased but it is a voluntary one. This relationship is that of intense love, in this manner he is also our conqueror, our ruler, our king and our greatest teacher.









“Ishq se Ho Jaa’e Mumkin Hai Wagarnah ‘Aql se 

Keya Muqaam-e-Mustafa Hai Faislah Dushwaar Hai.’’




      

What are the limits of human intellect? How well the poet of the East, late Allamah Muhammad Iqbaal, has said it,

“Guzar Jaa ‘Aql Se Aaagay ke yeh Noor

 Chiraagh-e-Raah Hai Manzil Naheen Hai”


(Pass over intellect because this light only illuminates the path it is not the destination)

As the poet has said,

“Shaayed ‘Usay ‘lshq Bhee Na Samjhe
Jis Karb Mayn ‘Aql Mubtilaa Hai”

(Perhaps even love cannot understand the anguish which intellect undergoes.)

        Intellect must undergo anguish, for intellect is worthless. It begins to pant after un revealing the seventh door (stages). Love is a destination by itself.  Love is the excellence of man and this universe is like a mirage in-front of a lover.  The lover is a universe within himself. Love is the reality it is the destination and the elixir of life and eternity. Intellect is the beginning, love is the ultimate. Intellect is a bay horse, love is quality. Intellect is an attribute of man, love is the culminating point, Intellect is doubt, love is certainty. Therefore, intellect is sometime denial sometimes affirmation, love is affirmation through and through. Intellect is a dream, love is its interpretation.  If Intellect is a mirage then love is the reality, (Intellect does not mean insolence, slander, accusation or abuse). Ask Hazrat Baayazeed Bistaami (May Allaah have mercy on him) about the status of love. It is said that, “His soul kept flying in the world of souls for 70 thousand years and it kept saying this only that the limits of the grandeur of the holy Prophet Mustafaa (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam) cannot be known.”
