Bernie Ecclestone is Awliya Saint ......if somethings mean something else

The Sufism of F1
If life is an F1 Race,
The Syaria (the Law) is the racing car,
A work of sublime engineering designed
To bring the F1 driver (that's you) from
The starting line (your birth)
To the Checkered Flag (your death)
Pursuing a perfect racing line (the Sunnah of the Prophet)
And avoiding the barriers and hard walls
That ring the circuit (that's your Ego),
With the hope of winning a podium finish (the Divine Presence)
With the brolly dolly girls (that's the Huris (angelic companions) of Heaven)
And popping of the champagne (after all, wine and spirits are permissible there).

The fuel especially designed in God's Lab to run the Horsepower
Of your engine is the Tariqa (The spiritual path often known as Sufism),
Your years of training as a novice driver and test driver before earning your racing spot
Is your daily solat and awrad (prayers, remembrance and praise of God),
The Team Manager is your Murshid (Spiritual Master),
Your pit crew consists of your family and friends,
All the colourul brands that you sport on your racing car,
Your racing suit and cap are the Divine Attributes of God,
The race marshals and safety cars are His Angels,
The spectators at the circuit being all of creation witnessing
Your winning runs (good deeds) and spectacular crashes (bad deeds),
And of course, lastly... Bernie Ecclestone is the Awliya Qutubul Zaman (Saint and Polar of the Epoch) overseeing the overall running of F1 (your life and every other life on the planet), and within whose heart resonates the Power of the Prophet Muhammad(pbuh).

I don't think I really have anything to add to this 'prose'. Have a fantastic Friday, sunshine, on this blessed month of Ramadhan.

wa min Allah at-taufiq

Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way
