And Allah brings about contraction and expansion (2:245)
Such energy tightly focused on the One from every atom of creation from every direction within the Universe. Inhaling, exhaling, contracting, expanding; bowing in the ecstatic love of submission. SubhanAllah, an explosion of Muhabbat, made even more potent during these hallowed nights holding the secrets and mysteries of the Night of Power.
What will explain to you what that Night of Glory is?
The Night of Glory is better than a thousand months;
on that night the Angels and the Spirit descend again and again with their Lord’s permission on every task;
it is peace: this till the rise of dawn. (97:2-5)
Spinning, the entire Universe spinning with an explosive energy. An energy born from the Light of the Prophet SallAllahu alaihi wasallam, who then received the Divine Words for mankind during this electrified time.
Attributed to Junayd Rahmatullahi alaihi…’Fear of Allah contracts me while hope of Him expands me. The real nature of things (haqiqah) unifies me [in His Presence], while the Truth of His Being (haqq) separates me [from His Essence]. When He contracts me through fear He makes me pass away from myself, and when he expands me through hope, He returns me to myself. When He unifies me through the real nature of things, He raises me to His Presence and when He separates me [from Him] through His Unique Truth, He makes me witness what is other than myself, and so veils me from Him. He, may He be exalted, in all of that moves me [from state to state], not holding me back. He estranges me [from all else] but does not make me familiar with Him. It is His Presence that I taste the food of my being. Would that He would annihilate me from myself and so gratify me, or take me away from myself and so relieve me!’
Millions of specks make up this centrifugal force, a perpetual circling wave, contracting, expanding, seeking all the majestic promises from these remaining days. One promise being that Umrah in Ramadhan is recorded as having performed Hajj with our Beloved Al-Mustafa SallAllah alaihi wasallam. Insha’Allah this speck physically leaves the beloved neighbour SallAllah alaihi wasallam, to spiritually accompany him for Hajj.
Insha’Allah, the return to him SallAllah alaihi wasallam at his Abode of Felicity, along with millions, will be soon.
May all hearts be purified and our collective energy as the Ummah of Muhammad SallAllah alaihi wasallam contract and expand in unison with a renewed depth of love A Muhabbat explosion bringing joy and peace to all, Ameen.

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.
