Sayings of Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan

(God speaking to man)

When a glimpse of Our image is caught in man, when heaven and earth are sought in man,
then what is there in the world that is not in man? If one only explores him, there is a lot in man.

If you will go forward to find Us, We will come forward to receive you.

Give Us all you have, and We shall give you all We possess.

In man We have designed Our image; in woman We have finished it.

In man We have shown Our nature benign; in woman We have expressed Our art divine.

God is the answer to every question.

Make God a reality, and God will make you the truth.

God made man, and man made good and evil.

If the Almighty God chooseth, He hath power sufficient to turn thy shield into a poisoned sword, and even thine own hand into the hand of thine adversary.

Give all you have, and take all that is given to you.

Your great enemies are those who are near and dear to you, but your still greater enemy is your own self.

Whichever path you choose, the right or the wrong,
know that there is at the back always a powerful hand to help you along it.

O peace-maker, before trying to make peace throughout the world, first make peace within thyself!

Man! Thou art the master of life, here and in the hereafter.

Out of space there arose light,
and by that light space became illuminated.

If your fellow man does not pay you his debts, forbear patiently; someday every farthing will be paid you with interest.

Put thy trust in God for support, and see His hidden hand working through all sources.
