View Full Version : ..The Holy Month Of Ramadhan....

09-01-2008, 12:06 AM

Tonight, let’s move out of the dining hall
And into the light of the moon
Upon a hill, stand in silence with me
And gaze upon its Beauty

The musicians will have to rest their strings
For tonight, a Secret emerges out of Silence
Echoing throughout the night sky, it sings
Like a mystical song of the past

This morning, how empty your stomach was
But how filled your heart was with remembrance
Our bodies starve, but the Soul blooms like a Garden
Newly filled with the fruits of wisdom and experience

And upon sunset, the hour of the feast arrives
I must speak inwardly: O’ self, what have you learned from fasting?
Ramadan is a mercy to you – shine with its Beauty
Be the light of your Being

What purpose does starvation serve
when old habits cease to persist?
How can you sit under the same tree?
It withers in time, journey onward my friend

Facing East, I recite the Glorious verses:
“O’ Lord, increase me in knowledge” (20:114)
And the Holy Scripture responds:
“God advances guidance in those who seek guidance” (19:76)

Watching the luminous moon hang in the sky
I want to close my lips, my ears, my eyes
Silence to words
Let my heart open and be touched by Beauty

A wailing echoes quietly in the night sky
Like Hazrat Bilal’s divine call to prayer
Traveling from one star to the next
Reminding us of the Eternal nature of His Word

God of Mercy and Love:
Thank You for Your Message
For this blessed month, for this Gift of Life
Thank You for everything

I know that I am more than what I am
With Your guidance, I long to Be....
