Joyjot for the day :-)

A little note-to-self I found tucked away in my wallet, that fell out while riffling through 🙂

Al-wadud is one of the names of beauty (in Arabic, ism-jamal) of God. It means the source of all love put simply. Though it is deeper than that. There are several words in Arabic that mean love…each to communicate different types of love. Not all can be used as a ‘name’ of God. This one, Al-Wadud, (= The Love) means a type of love that never tires or dries-up that, like Allah, is all sustaining but not sustained (in Muslim theology God is One in His essence as well as His attributes).
