A KING MOST PURE, MOST COMPASSIONATE… and a Prophet Sublime in the Art of Thankfulness

non1. You Write The Story
You write the story,
So write an end for me,
Good or bad.

Just promise never to leave me
To the coldness
Of Your indifference.
…………

Good or Bad End? *Gulp* That is a little worrying, is it not, my friend? But since when is God ever a bad writer? He cannot write anything bad, after all, the root word of good is God. It simply would not be in His character. As the Muslims say, “Subhana Malikul Quddus…” Glory unto the King the Holiest, the Most Pure, the One who is pure, spotless, without blemish or fault, the One whose essence and attributes are of unimaginable purity and perfection (al-Quddus is one of God’s 99 Names, the Asma al Husna. Credit to an elaboration at http://wahiduddin.net/words/wazifa.htm)

Despite the arguments of the neo-atheists, indifference to human sorrow is not a Godly attribute.

Thank God for God and His Prophet. ‘Man is not an island’ that old saying goes. But sometimes we feel that way, normally after some sad ending of sorts – a break-up, a death, a notice to vacate, being fired from your job. Nonetheless, however foul we feel, there is at least one person who will lend an ear, someone who will never ignore us in our dire straits, who never tires to listen to our moans and woe begotten groans at our life’s pitfalls. Such is the attribute of the Lord Almighty, coming from the all-encompasing assurances and guidance contained in the holy Quran and the Sunnah (prophetic traditions) that is the faith of Muhammad (saws). So Thank God for God then, sunshine, and thank God for the Prophet (saws) who awakens the most sleepy soul into a state of sublime gratitude.

Now isn’t this a nice little tale to bring to the campfire of your conscience?26062011446-2
