The true Sufi is such that even when he is unjustly accused, attacked and condemned from all sides, he patiently endures, uttering not a single bad word about any of his critics.

In observing Lent this year, I committed to 40 days of love posts. These posts are from the Works of Shams Tabrizi, a Persian writer. Each post is from the body of work often referred to as The Forty Rules of Love. The images are free from Pixabay. The daily titles are mine.
