Makkah al-Mukarramah, Rabi'alAwwal 1432

a garden in blossom

By In

This body is a dwelling of the true Lord, and my heart like a garden in blossom.

Within it are fountains, within it are prayer grounds, within it places to bow down in prayer.

Within it is the Ka’ba, within it the qibla, within it the cries of “Only Allah!”

I found the Perfect Guide, Bahu, He alone will take care of me.

Death Before Dying, The Sufi Poems of Sultan Bahu. And here for a Bahu Ramadhan story of The Cave and the Deer.

…check if the blossoms in the garden of your heart, during these last moments of our cherished guest, are bursting with Sakeenah, Taqwa, good deeds. Or with the sweet scent of words crying to Allah Ta’ala asking for Hidayah across the world, for Tawfiq in all our affairs, for Iman that is forever on the increase.

…or do the fountains splash with the coolness of repentance and whispers of ‘Ya Rabb, assist us to please You until You are pleased with us, Ya Rabb, make us of those who are rightly guided.’

…Insha’Allah peek in all the nooks and crannies of your inner garden where you will find the Perfect Guide in full bloom…

Laylatul Qadr in Masjid al-Haram from Arab News, where millions, appeared in unison as one giant unfolding blossom…

All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam.  May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.
