Of Ablution

~ Of Ablution ~

My love, each step you take
into entering a Mosque
is a sacred journey
that prepares you
to enter the Mosque
of your own self~
When you step inside
the House of the Beloved
you learn to turn inward~
Say: “Bismillah!
Every gesture,
every movement you make
draws the presence near;
therefore, you must strive
to cultivate Harmony
before you intend to pray~
Prayer tears up the veil
between you and your Source,
it washes yourself of separation
through the blessings of Ablution.
A Mosque simply mirrors
every cell within you!
You are a sacred space,
a receptacle of Effulgence.
Precious one, know yourself
so that you may know your Lord~
