THE CUPBEARER

artflow_201612232206The Cupbearer
His cup is dirty,
Not pristine, not clear,
However fine the truth may be,
However sweet the water,
She will not take his poetry
Nor drink his words any longer.

For he is the lost seeker,
The oath breaker,
The cup bearer,
Cast aside and alone
But for his pride
So bitter.

………

Have care, sunshine, where you put your faith, for whatever you may plan or desire, Allah Almighty disposes of your precious arrangements as He deems fit in His All-Knowing All-wise wisdom.

In whatever you endeavour to do attend to Allah first foremost and last and do not be like the cupbearer. Consult with the One Who does not break His Divine Promises, and hold fiercely to His Sayyidina ‘Urwatu Wuthqa (the Trusty Handhold) – being our beloved Nabi Muhammad (sws). Surely, AllahuRahman (swt) will thus guarantee your success in this world and AllahuRahim (swt) will confirm your success in the Hereafter. Believe me!

THE SECRET HISTORY OF FOOLS …about love and getting blamed

dark-room-light-through-window-hunched-man1My Secret History
I have a library of my secret history
Known only to God and me,
But know you not
That in the library
Are countless volumes
known only to God alone?

IMG_20160128_070805_resized_1Secret Even to Us. My love, we all have secrets. Some are virtues and kindness, done in quiet disguise, while many are our sins, curses and dalliance in vice. But good or bad, we would actually know most of our deeds, our acts and omissions. What we are interested in is however those errors that we have committed unaware. And it is these sins that are hidden in the secret volumes of our secret history known only to Allah (swt) while we stumble along in blissful ignorance.

Why Are We Blamed For What We Do Not Know? Such is the blessings which grace every moment of our wakefulness and sleep, in this world and in the Hereafter, that we are forever indebted to our Lord and to His Messenger Muhammad (sws). And we cannot begin to enumerate the quality nor the quantity of His divine generosity. It is because of this blessed indebtedness that we turn to Him, seeking His forgiveness not only of His blessings that we are aware of but we intentionally or unintentionally forget, but also of His blessings that we shall forever be ignorant of.

The Answer is Love. But why should we be judged for what we are unaware? That does appear somewhat unfair, yes? But did someone long ago not say “All is fair in love and war“? And eons ago we did declare our love, my friend. Like the fools that we were we declared our intention to worship and to adore Allah Almighty when there was no one and nothing else in creation that dared take that burden of choice.

Perhaps we are indeed fools. But better the fool of God than the wise of our own egos.
