quatrain 758

From sunlight, two versions of quatrain #758:
any one in love
will have no religion
in the religion of love
there is no heresy or faith
love know no
body heart or soul
there is only
oneness and no more

translation by Nader Khalili
Rumi, Dancing the Flame, Cal-Earth Press, 2001

Be certain
in the religion of Love
there are no
believers or unbelievers.
Love embraces all.
