Chapters and Nuances of Knowledge. Prophetic Guidance and the Oneness of God

One God. One Humanity. One Love. And One Biscuit.
Who He Is
His Names, his Identities
Are written and often times hidden,
His Essence and Spiritual Station
Are both celebrated and unknown,
His Love is exemplary,
He is the Mercy to the Worlds,
And in His Knowledge
Is His Power.

His Family is destined
For Greatness and Tribulation,
His Mission was to give glad tidings
And firm warnings, to defeat
Falsehood with Truth.

His Companions are like
Stars in the night sky
And the very best of His Nation.

Through Him we have come
To understand more of
The Angelic Realm
And its inhabitants.

Through Him we have come
To be cautious of
The Kingdom of Djinns
And its denizens.

He is the Seal of the Prophets
Who were before him,
And He is the Garden of Saints
Who are to come after him.

He is the Beginning
Of both the Past
And the Future.
He is the Crossroad of Creation.

And when He left
This physical world,
He left the Holy Criterion
And His Traditions
As a golden reminder
Of who He is
And Who He is
Guiding us to...

The sinner is busy doing the impossible. Classifying and categorizing topics / chapters about the Prophet Muhammad, as described through prose. It is not because He IS the Prophet Muhammad, but it is simply because history, knowledge and belief often merely describes the nuances of one central character, and these nuances, by their nature often overlap each other. This rule is the same for all humanity, including Prophets, Messengers, Saints and sinners....

Ultimately, when you fall far enough down the rabbit hole of spiritual contemplation - all our knowledge and lives, all our rights and wrongs, all our successes and failures, all our celebrations and regrets, love and hurt, joy and sadness... all this leads us to the Divine Reality - The Oneness and Absolute Uniqueness of our One God, Lord of both believers and unbelievers.

Tonight I am resting my tired soul on the pillar of Oneness. Seeking refuge from the multiplicity and plurality of our existence. Sometimes, we are just tired, you see. Tired of work, tired of life and tired of our trials. So I try to find God, the Balm of all tiredness, the Medicine of all heartaches, the Cure for the Brokenhearted. 

Have a perfectly beautiful day, sunshine. And if you are tired, then rest. Do not starve or wear out your body or your soul. We may be weak and feeble mortals, but we are still responsible for both.

wa min Allah at-taufiq

Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way
