Now and Tomorrow

IMG_2601.JPG

Have I seen tomorrow? Has anyone? Will anyone? Shall anyone? Can anyone?

No.

Then why do we plan a tomorrow and not celebrate this moment? Why do we dread tomorrow and not be joyful now?

Fear.

We fear time and we fear people. We fear, so we plan. We must see who owns Time and who owns People…

The Creator. With us….Now.

Desire

Desire may have no boundaries and it may be wild.. But you hold the rope that is tied around desire..you own it.. Let it be your slave .. Not you it’s slave. Let desire serve you and do not let it own you so that you may serve your desire..

Desire is energy.. Like a wild horse you must tame..

Shift in Focus

image

Giving up on the Unseen, man is obsessed with what can be seen and touched and so loyalties change from the world we have come from and will go to, to the world we are in. Reality is illusion to man and illusion is the ultimate reality and so the reactions of the heart and emotion to situation and circumstance..

Internal disaster leading to invitation to external disaster..

Do not worship each other but worship your Lord, your Creator..

Do we?

Or do we pray and worship and ask not for that heaven, but for this world?

Our focus has shifted from beautiful heavens to the ugly depths of this world and we call those depths home..

Walk with Faith..

image

Greater than the one causing you to fear God is the one that teaches you how to love Him..and shows the reality of faith.. Yes..there will be punishment. There will be eternal torment for some..there will be a Judgement. But, what if..on that day..you meet your Lord with love in your heart? Will you then not get love in return? Love you nurtured in your heart by realizing His greatness and acknowledging it at all times? To have knowledge is good..to have faith and a personal dialogue with your Creator each time you pray is better and never forgotten..for He forgets not. As for knowledge..will you display it to Him who knows All? It is but another blessing of His and not your accomplishment…

The Crying

image

Can my heart stop crying for a moment? Or am I asking it to not beat for a moment?
For everytime I ask my heart to cry not, it tells me it cannot smile. As long as one man kills another man for no reason. As long as one human dies of hunger while another over eats. As long as innocence is violated. As long as mothers cry and as long as man oppresses man..how can my heart not cry?

Mercy my Allah..mercy…have mercy on us all oh Merciful….

Desires and Guilt

image

Your desire..the thought of it..the imagination of it..and sometimes its fulfilment may make you feel guilty..and many times it does..

If it does..evaluate the desire…analyze it..know it..see where it has come from and what has caused it..
You will start to learn about yourself. You will get to know you. And in knowing yourself, you will find out that you knew yourself so little. And, in learning about yourself, you will learn about your Creator.
Your desire will then find patience because it will then find refinement….and you will not know guilt..

All Shall Perish..

 

I know..

One day “I” will not be, yet I shall be. I know that all of this Earth shall change and all shall perish.

All the mighty shall fall and structures shall crumble like dust. The mountains shall float and the seas shall merge and ..yes… ALL shall perish. All creatures gathered and judgments given. All shall be as no one can imagine.. and ALL shall perish..

The tears, the smiles, the joys of people… The memories and little things we put in little boxes to keep forever.. The trees and flowers we planted with love, the dresses we wore and the homes we built.. All shall perish. When we will not cry for anyone, when we will not care. When we will just know ourselves alone…and YOU… for YOU shall not perish.

Yes, I know.. that one day.. the Earth will spill out all it contains and reveal to all with sense what was reality. Reality we ignored and chose illusions.. illusions that shall perish..

I ask you my Allah, in writing and in word and from my heart and my soul… I beg you .. that when All this does perish.. let not my awareness of You perish.. let not your mercy for me Perish.. let not your love Perish.. I beg you.. I request.. I bow in submission and ask you and know that you are the Most Merciful and Compassionate… Do not let your Mercy upon me Perish…

La ilaha Il Allah, Muhammadun Rasool Allah…
