the sound of the Jinn
dry sibilation of time and loss
and golden temptation

opened books in closed
masjids
the pages don't read themselves

I want to go

Come, He says softly

an old man appears and
moves in a tired dance
amid the scattered tomes

gently the truth calls

Wind
Water
Rain and Thunder
Children at the playground
High pitched insects buzz
A cry from a bird
Lawn mower
Words of a mu'adhdhin
The Gentle Parade
United believers
The smash of glass
Doors open, doors close
Sirens
Rustle of cotton, wrapping
Quiet tears fall
Rain
Thunder
Water and Wind

today you will be
a worthy slave

Near Perfect Life

Why the want of death?
The clean sheet.

One false line, a mistake, a
scratch, an error. Unerasable.

Obscure error by adding 1000's
more? Blend it! Cover it!

But the original error remains,
written on your scroll, shining.

Rather, return to Ar-Raheem.
Desire to live the near perfect life.

Action

Have?

-- hold!

Know?

-- be silent!

Can?

-- do!

And Allah knows best.

It with a capital i

simple & one

the presence of an-Noor gathers within
the souls that revert to Itself

uniting to that which is Unity

perfecting them with Its own perfection

Allah leads them to cry out to the summit
of Al-Khaaliq to contemplate Its essence

aspire

be purified through ascetic labour &
see It work within you -- as the believer

Thrush at flight

Part of the wind:
Yemen Thrush
Dance in the vault of heaven
Weighlessly streaming
Through
The open skyways of
His
Sun-filled firmament.

Terraces

The terraces of Jebel Samhan!
Capture the image in
Your mind: Jebel Samhan.
This infinity of beauty,
Sky and mountain and all creation
Stretching away to the
Earth's edge.
These are the terraces of Jebel Samhan.

Sunshine, Dates and Nature's Salaam

Picking dates in the sunshine
I am sung to
By a Basra Reed-warbler:
His gruff 'chaar' is welcomingly
Returned
By his brothers in Philistine.

Seasonal Storm

Bright are my mountains today.
The sand flows before created winds:
A running sea of dust.
As clouds stream upward,
Believers
Pray
Before Al-Musawwir.
Gentle pillows layer the sky,
Binding light, leaving the northwest
in partial darkness.
Wild wings ruffle
Riding the unseen currents;
Watching and waiting
As
The believers billow through
Rolling
Between earth and sky.

Fajr on a Wing

Abdim's Stork
Go gliding
Over Africa's faithful horn
By
The Master's wind:
Turning,
Banking,
They follow
The battered coastline.
Sweeping,
In grace-filled strokes,
Then,
Buoyantly rise
To cross Bab al-Mandab
In time for
Fajr in Yemen.

Dancing at Fajr

The wind
Is whispering
In the date-palms this morning.
Thus
Have I heard it
During ramadan.
But this is the time of Hajj!
What, wind and date-palms
Do you whisper for?
Whispering it is --
In these busy days of pilgrimage.

Date-palms:
Why do you whisper
While visitors walk the land?
Do you, quiet wind
And You.

Date-palms:
Wind and frongs dancing.
Will you share
The providence of
Tomorrow's ramadan?

Ancient Minaret

The wind is in the minaret this morning
Whispering Ibrahimic notes to restless hearts,
Calling across the lost times' flight,
With a swan song, from creations depth.
Carrying the soft voice of sadness,
That has ever called man since the first
Wind stirred the dust that shaped him to fulness
Then caressed his face with Hawwa's gentle hand
And took the fruit from a tree bearing knowledge:
Thus ever it whispers its sweet voice
Of hopes and prayers for a Jannah eternal.
This morning I follow the way of a created wind.

Enliven the Fallen

There are souls that have slipped

It is necessary to
Catch them and comfort them
With all that can
Comfort the soul

Through the gentleness of faith
Which is an aspect prayer
And through the righteously created
Recitation -- that comforts and

Enlivens the fallen

flimflam

At times,

a believer
falls very


deeply

and becomes distant from al-Haqq
through self-righteous falsehood,

she knows in truth that she has turned her back,
and even now,

she is as He wills

and therefore she despairs in herself,
but in truth, one must stay far from
such flimflam.

Know that...

Falls and descents and confusion --
The believer is obliged to work through them
Before he stands in honest judgment
All the struggling believers with taqwa
-- go through this

hush the harsh

Burdened by harsh judgments?
Allah is merciful

Enduring some suffering?
Praise Allah in all circumstances

Make an effort
to avoid
evil
tendencies,
for the primary root of
your
darkest inclination is
harsh judgements --

May Allah forgive me and you!

Purpose of ascent

If a person has


sunk

to a new low,

and if he is strong in his thirst
for a quenching peace,

then he can rise through his fall to a
very high place, insha'Allah,

which is


the

part of the fall for the
purpose of ascent.

by nuh ibn zbigniew

Rejoice in your one good point!
That He made you a believer
and therefore closer to the
truth.

You are one who can lead and guide
to the way of the truth -- through
which there is hope for bliss
eternal.

And from this pleasure, one breaks
through barriers which are the
impediments to personal
growth.

compassion and the knife

Compassion destroys fear
and awakens love, as is taught by
the story of Ismail,
Ibrahim and the knife.

The Lexicologist

One should strengthen oneself with words,
to speak words of resounding truth,
words of recitation and salat and taqwah,
and to take time for your Creator, and to
speak with your dear friends.

Great benefit comes from remembering Allah,
As Sami, the Hearer of all.

Two minds. one believer
by nuh ibn

To struggle along the straight path,
yet never feel that one has arrived.

To have huge ambitions,
yet remain ordinary and humble.

To say:

I want to, and can, do it all--

yet, no matter how much one has done,
know that there is still more to do,
insha'Allah.
