A gentle man. A gentleman.

The forty daughters of the Holy Prophet, in the world of souls or imagination, married to our master of The Double Light, one after another. Marrying, tarrying, passing.

His concern for taking care of women, as a gentleman should, was ever deepening.

What could that mean? To be in a war-like situation and to not retaliate no matter what these 40 women would do. Such gentleness would allow for the sharing of love in ever more intimate ways.

Again, outwardly we celebrate his uniqueness as possessor of The Double Light, but it is the capacity of a widower that enables him to illuminate the darkness of a mob mentality and the zealotry of militant academic believers.

How do you do it? How do you hold your ground respectfully? How do you disagree without being violent?

A gentleman may propose disputes are settled by dueling; a gentleman may decline argumentation and conflict, also, by stating, “I am fasting”.

A gentle man.



‘Ali, may Allah be pleased with him said: I heard the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, say to ‘Uthman, ‘Even if I had forty daughters I would marry them to you, one after another, until none of them remained.’
