The love of the Beloved

By ibn al Qayyim al Jawziyah

The love of the Beloved
must be unconditionally returned.

You love the enemies of your Beloved
and still seek love in return.

You fight the beloved of your Beloved.

True devotion is nothing
but total submission
of body and soul
to One Love.

We have seen humans claim to submit,
yet their loyalties are many.

They put their trust here, and their hope there,
and their love is without consequence.
