Break the Silence
Talk to Him,
Talk to Him However Way You Want to...
Through your Prayer,
Through Your huMan Tears and holy Hymn,
Break THe siLence,
And talk to HiM...
eVEN in your nightly Dreams...
For though your lips stay stubbornly silent,
Your Soul may yet find its ReAl appearance,
And while you fall asleep like a Heathen
Your DreaM takes its path to Heaven.
Life is about conversations about God and with God. And it is meant to be a two-way communications. A dialogue. And even if we are naughty and negligent in our prayers, does God turn away? Is our connection to Him severed?
So long as there is a single breath animating us, there is a link. For God is unlike us, whimsical and often arbitrary in our actions. "I am closer to you than your jugular vein", God expresses Himself clearly in the Holy Quran. Therefore, the only question is whether you are up to the task of accessing and filtering the information downloaded from the Divine Presence on a daily, second by microsecond basis.
And this happens even in our sleep, as our spirit partially (and temporarily) relinquishes its worldly passport to find some divine sustenance from the Fountain of Knowledge. For this world is indeed a mere journey from our real home in the beautiful meadows of God's Divine Presence. And one day (and may such a day be blessed!), our worldly passport shall indeed expire and we will be invited home to the place of honour as a weak servant in the Heavenly Court of God - Creator and Lord of all mankind.
This is something the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.s.) teaches his followers. This is not just a journey for the Muslims, this is a journey fated for all humanity. So let us be nice to everyone sharing our travel!
Uh oh... and lest I forget, here is wishing all my Hindu brothers and sisters a wonderful Deepavali!
wa min Allah at-taufiq
Hate has no place in Islam
Love will show the Way
