23. Beautiful Friendship
How wonderful is friendship,
And the Lord has assigned special heralds,
With wings in bright plumage and eyes aglow with warmth,
To company the gathering of good friends,
So that each friend to me,
Looked, oh Lord, how beautiful!
So that each moment together,
Felt to me, oh Lord, how precious!
A friend of the al-Marhum Shaykh Raja Ashman ibni Sultan Azlan Shah (Ku Ash) posted this picture below on my Facebook. Thus, I am taking it and using it. It's okay. By my loss of reason I have permission to do so...
|A group of crazies, with a crazier one, and the craziest of them all.|
I feel that the crazies are the lucky ones, the crazier one is the honoured one, and the craziest of them all holds the key to the asylum. But if you look at the world now turned upside down closely with your heart, who are actually the inmates and who are actually the doctors?
After all, more than a thousand years ago, the Companions of the Prophet(pbuh) were considered insane to follow the craziest of them all, Muhammad ibn Abdullah (pbuh) - considered by many right-thinking Quraysh nobility then to be a dastardly trouble-maker, a rebel, a man with no respect of religious traditions, a breaker of families, a sorcerer and a mad man.
I will not tell you to choose which side of history to participate, for I really don't know anything much. But in the teachings of Muhammad(pbuh) all that long years ago in the desert and dunes of Arabia, he had much to say and to give. He says follow Haqq (God, the Truth) and follow your heart. Follow it to the rightful conclusion, however such choices may dismay those ruled by their reason. For in truth it is not reason that they portray, but like lemmings they slavishly follow the delusion and illusion of knowledge spun like a spiders' web by their four-legged ego.
So be wary, be happy and have a craaaazy day, sunshine!
