MUHAMMAD… Does His Light Not Shine Bright?

artflow_201609031916At The Best of Time. When we die, my love, as all things created must, we shall die God willing, at the best of time. Not a moment too soon, and not a moment too late. We shall not overstay our welcome here in this world, nor shall we leave without anything undone in this reality that needs to be done.

But however long that Allah (swt) desires us to live, will it suffice to learn all we need to learn?

Limitless, the Prophet
But if Fate would have
Me live for a century
Or for one thousand years,
Will any age suffice
To encompass the knowledge
About the Prophet
Muhammad?
………..

We found this thought preying upon me and my friend, Haji Mahmud earlier this morning. We are the poorest of companions, I fear, always turning to the beautiful red strings that knots the stories we are listening to, mostly about Allah (swt) and His Habibullah (sws). But who are we to speak of such things?

Muhammad & His Light
If I could give voice to what I feel, what songs can I sing?
If I could share everything that I feel, what stories will I tell?
If I could have my pen and paper, what books may I write?
When the darkness of my sins covers me,
Is his name not the light?
Does his light not shine bright?
………..

Good night, my love. Your humble chronicler here wishes to sleep. To see the bright lights that appear to shine from a horizon in the hereafter. It is not far and it is a homecoming dearly yearned for.IMG_20131111_205650

Wa min Allah at-taufiq

Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way

LOVE WILL FIND A WAY… the finite connected to the Infinite

Love Will Find a Way
Though your heart is made of stone,
Love will find a way,
Through whatever nook or cranny,
Love will find a way,
With what little warmth love receives,
Love will find a way,
If only you would believe…

Love will find a way.

It is interesting how people distinguish between divine love and mortal love. As if divine love is somehow a different type of love. By my reckoning, it is the same love that we have for anyone, anything and everything! What differentiates Godly love from mortal love is only a question of degree.

And even if that difference may be measured only in term of infinite degrees, that is still okay. Because we are separate yet connected. Finite yet connected to the Infinite. Connected to God and His Divine Love. And of course, happily through His Mercy, connected to one another.

Don’t you think so too, sunshine?

While you linger over such thoughts, let us dwell awhile in the  grove of happiness where the trees, the flowers and the birds themselves sing in greeting and praise of Allah Almighty and His Beloved Nabi Muhammad Habibullah (saws).
