Along Ampang Road, to the Sweetness of The Divine Presence - a 2 day break

Kay-El is a city in the Klang Valley. And a valley is a flat land surrounded
by hills. As you can see here...

153. Stations and Layways
It is the fortune of a wanderer for Allah
That at every station and layway,
There is a reason to be thankful and happy.
And though you may be inclined to stay,
Allah beckons and you move on,
Day after day after day.

It is the school holidays here and the sinner is on a two day break with his son, Mikhail. We have not been doing anything much actually. Basically we are doing the same thing that we do every day, but transplanted into a small hotel in town. Although we stay only 10 minutes from the bustling capital city of Kuala Lumpur (or 'Kay-El' as how the locals refer to it), I hardly ever come into the city. So this is really a change. Of sorts.

Down below is Jalan Ampang (Ampang Road), one of the main arteries into town, and it is already filling up with traffic, although only 7 in the morning. That is life you see. Sometimes you can rest and take in the view, but soon God is beckoning you "... Come along now, keep moving."

No, that's not me. That's my father in Manila, in the early 1970s I  reckon.
He is a wanderer of sorts too.

Moving to where? To the sweetness of the Divine Presence of course.

See you on the road, sunshine.

wa min Allah at-taufiq

Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way
