Where is Allah

WHERE IS ALLAH?

"I searched the mountains and the valleys but neither in the heights nor in the depths I was able to find Him. I went to the Kaaba in Makkah, but He was not there either. I questioned the scholars and philosophers, but He was beyond their understanding. I then looked into my heart and it was there where He dwelled that I saw him; He was nowhere else to be found."

~ Jalaluddin Rumi ~

Im really happy that we are embracing Rumi again. He is one of ours... yet for many years muslims in south africa were 'cautioned' against reading his work due to ideological differences.

yay for Moulana Rumi :)
