A Prayer taught by Imam Ali

by | Mar 7, 2009 | Sufi Comics | 9 comments


This prayer summarizes  in essense the intention of a Sufi’s approach to supplication.   It’s a higher state one strives to acheive where one yearns for God not for any ulterior motive, but because God is worthy of being yearned & worshipped.

  1. Salams Arif and Ali,

    Ma sha Allah! A great cartoon, conveying a noble and essential truth. May Allah bless you endeavours. It would also be good if you follow this cartoon with the saying in which Imam Ali (may God ennoble his countenance) makes these statements.

    Your brother in Islam
