“The basis of Sufism is consideration of the hearts and feelings of others. If you haven’t the will to gladden someone’s heart, then at least beware lest you hurt someone’s heart, for on our path, no sin exists but this.”
Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh, Master of the Nimatullahi Sufi Order.

    Dear Maryam,

    Thank you for this quote from Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh. I once read his article on futuwwa/chivalry which echoed the same sentiment, that is, the centrality of watching over and caring for the well-being of others.

    Kindest wishes,
