Sorry, I wasn’t able to post anything yesterday because I was out with family and friends, but I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy and blessed Eid. May Allah accept our fasting and fill our days with joy and beauty! Ameen!
I would like to share one of my favorite poems by our beloved Jalaluddin Rumi, the 13th century Islamic mystic and poet. It’s short, but very sweet and beautiful.
O Love, O pure deep Love, be here, be now,
Be all – worlds dissolve into Your
stainless endless radiance,
Frail living leaves burn with You brighter
than cold stares –
Make me Your servant, Your breath, Your core.
