Hajji

The pilgrim’s heart

reverence,
fear,
hope
and love.

Just can't say

A smile speaks
What words can’t say
Joy opens one’s heart
Laughter gladdens one’s life

It’s real
It happens
It’s a truth
I believe it

Laughter rings in my ears
A joyfilled presence is still felt nearby
I seem to see His peace in a crowd

Masha'Allah, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar

Will this iman lives on
In the physical realm
In the light of this life
Iman -- goodness -- kindness -- tenderness

A time will come
I will leave this place
And reveal all I did --
Have I inspired & taught with joy?

Sometimes just a smile speaks
What words can't say

Our Quran

i
The only way to give
the right guidance is
through devotion to
our Quran.


ii

Our Quran gives the power
to guide even those who are
very far, even if you have
no idea what they need.


iii

When a believer is
devoted to our Quran,
even those who are very
far hear its voice crying out:

But verily it is Truth of assured certainty (1).


iv
This cry of our Quran will
bring everyone to Allah

Absent

The mountain peak sometimes
is hidden from me in a curtain
of cloud -- mostly however
I am hidden from the mountain peak
by great swaths of unfaithfulness, apathy, exhaustion,
when I forget or refuse to go
down to the floor or a few metres
up the straight path, on a clear day,
to affirm
that ever present
Creator that I say I love.

Jiryan Al-Shams Wa Al-Qammar Wa-Sukoon Al-Arz
Verse of the Copernican heresy

Some claim
the earth is

rotating?

'If so
the countries,
the mountains,
the trees,
the rivers,
and the oceans
will have no bottom and
the people will see the
eastern countries
move to the west
and
the western countries
move to the east.'

The Left-side Slope

To a position of verisimilitude I was raised,
And by the mercy of the Allah I was emancipated.
Like a candle I was melted in this dunya,
By being burnt, before the truth of the shahadah.

From this dunya to Jannah;
from Jannah through life's storms;
from life's storms to the village;
from the village to the believer's home;
from the believer's home to the sajajid;
from the sajajid to Salat;
from Salat a return to this dunya;
and to the awesome promise of Jannah again --

There is no god but God!
who can know You?
There is no god but God!
who can question?
There is no god but God!
who can defy?
There is no god but God!
who can be proud?
   
who is like You?
There is no god but God!

For you are the Compassionate,
     and the Most Merciful;
Your road is that of the only King,
     Your way is Holy;
Your path is through Peace and Blessing.
     Guardian of believers --
thousands of millions
     and finite to infinite,
who made man,
     and created women,
moves the winds,
     controls the unseen;
who is Al-Khaliq
     and is perfect in everyway.

So we start...

From this dunya to Jannah;

Hajj Mabroor

Picked pockets, bruised bodies, hurt feelings.

Just as the heat of a blast furnace separates
impurities from gold ore -- so the soul of the
pilgrim is purified and elevated.

Remember Hajji...

"Patiently bear their insults and offenses".

With death they spring

Quranic domain
Forested pain

I love you for the sake of Allah
even with the orphan child
by your side
in His hand

You're struggling

Keep out of the woods

A man rakes leaves into
a pile by his cabin, a heap,
& rests on his rake and
& burns them completely.
Their scent fills the forest
His children pause and
take heed of the smell

Thoughts in a  Minivan

Allah created you for His worship

There is no worship w/o tawheed
There is no prayer w/o taharah

shirk in worship = impurity in purification

and Allah know best

That which is forbidden

i
You may fall to the lowest depths -- Allah knows best.
But no matter how far you have fallen
it is still forbidden to give up

hope.

ii
Repentance is greater and anything in this dunya,
and therefore, there is absolutely no place for

despair.

iii
When you return to truth, even your worst sins
can be turned into something good.
We are taught that error can be transformed into

virtue.

iv
This idea contains no secrets. One's failings
and shortcomings can easily be returned to

Ar-Raheem.
-- Nothing is beyond His power.

The most important thing is never to give up,
but to continue to cry out offer your salat to
Al-Ghaffaar.

Far away riches

In this dunya
it is hard for
a believer
to have wealth

To obtain riches
one must lower
himself into filth

But even if he
abandons the
straight path --
there is no wealth

for even the wicked can be poor

But if one is truly a believer
then he is always far from

riches

The Gnatless Home
A Response to Rabbi Nachman

A believer's love for her husband
can be detected by the number of
prayers and insha'Allah blessings
found in their house

From their love for each other
-- for the sake of Allah
one can also tell if the fitnah caused by
the shaytan has been weakened or not

Shaytan's Hand

Worldly pleasures
-- sunbeams in a dark room

Seemly solid, but a grasp leads to an empty hand

Worldly desires
-- the same hold is true

Beware the tricks and traps of the fallen
