Assalamu Alaikum,

(I don’t know if I put this in an old post, because I did hear someone say the same thing awhile back, but…)

I was watching an old desi movie (which was not a love story. Wow!) and one guy said:

“It is simple to be happy, but it is difficult to be simple.”

    Not sure if I could agree with the quote. I guess it varies from person to person…
    Btw, i am writing here to remind you that i have managed to translate that Urdu poem into English. I informed you via mail too but probably the mail went into your spam folder.

    For me, what struck me about the quote was the idea that is difficult to be simple. That is part of the sufi way.

    And thank you for letting me know about your poem.

  4. Le Mystique said,
