Infinite Ways to Love You

~ Infinite Ways to Love You ~

All of my being
bursts with joy
when I see your beauty!
Stars leap in and out of me,
each stroking an harp
whose strings sing your name!
I take in all this harmony,
ecstatic over your humility
and your meeting yourself in
the Azzan* your cells chant.
Oh my, my soul says:
“Welcome to yourself in me,
there are infinite ways
to love you and you and you!”

Celestial Worlds Within

~ Celestial Worlds Within ~

My precious child,
your celestial worlds within
will unleash their ineffable Beauty
once you dissolve before
the throne of the Divine~
This is the purpose
behind the greater Jihad
as transmitted by
Prophet Muhammad (saw)!
Only Love can lead you on this Path~
