Imperfect Perfection?

Dear Friends
The video is an example of decadent Islam / Sufism that I adore. Deeply sophisticated, flawed yet full of beauty...

Reminds me of another couplet by Rumi:

Many prayers are declined because of the rank odour of a corrupt heart rising through the beautiful words. Let the words be wrong, but the meaning right. That flawed utterance is dearer to God.

A toast to shades of grey and the imperfectly perfect....
