Illuminated is the Heart
that chants the glories
of The Sublime’s throne.
Blessed be the soul
who embraces Injil
through the Holy Qur’an
like earth embraces truths
through the galaxies’ currents.
The Word commands “read!”
Lo! The inner eye opens:
Djibril (as) on his emerald seat,
Jesus (as) walking upon the sea,
Noah (as) gathers the light of humanity
and prophet Muhammad (saw)
crowns the collective being
with the altitudes of humility.
You see, Love is this gentleness
that governs the Muslim Universe,
while the moon transcribes to us:
“… unto Him is the journeying!”
