Juma'ah Mubarak

…where everything gathers on the day of gathering…

Muhmmad drawing1

…due to being frightfully happily joyfully busy busy a slightly stressed speck offers a Juma’ah reminder for Salawaat upon our Master and Leigelord, Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wassalam with this delighfully whimsical drawing…and reposting the following sparkle from almost one year ago…

Before the making of stars and oceans,

Reality created a light from Its Light,

a perfect mirror of Eternal Beauty,

a pearl of never-breaking whiteness.

From it all colours arise,

As a prism that opens light’s essence

and voids it on the sea of manifestation,

beautifying all that it shines on.

And when the diamond came to the world,

the most perfect creation in human form

gathered in himself the beauty of the whole universe,

the fullest mercy of the All-Merciful.

His names comprehend but one point of his essence:

The Beloved of God, he who always forgives,

The Torch of the path, the Praised one.

He where everything gathers.

It’s impossible to understand any virtue

but through his perfect example;

in him the most beautiful qualities

were completed in their purity.

(Emilio Alzueta)


…also be mindful of the Hujjaj in your pious Du’as and requesting Allah Ta’ala to grant us all more Barakah in our time, 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.

    Assalaamo Alaykum Sister.
    Following is a poem I wrote in the last few days on the upcoming occassion of Hajj, not up to your eloquent standards, but here it is:

    Lucky are the Hajees

    Lucky indeed are those invited Hajees
    Attending the court of Allah the Almighty
    As delegates and reps from all over the world
    Praying to and praising the only Deity.

    All dressed in white uniform
    ‘Labaaik, here I am’ is their call
    From Makkah to Mina they travel
    Old and young, one and all

    One full day in Mina to prepare
    For Arafat and it’s mass gathering
    All races and colours united in creed
    Till sunset, standing, sitting and praying.

    At sunset they leave en masse
    At Muzdalifah two salats performed as one
    Collecting stones, then they sleep
    Under the starry sky till dawn.

    Then back to Mina to pelt the big Shaytaan
    After the sacrifice of animal and one’s hair,
    Out of their Ihraam, they go to Masjide Haram
    In throngs to perform Tawafe Ziyarat there.

    Returning to Mina for two more days
    To pelt all three and engage in prayer
    Thus having completed the Hajj rituals
    All forgiven by Allah and no sins to bear.

    On to Madeenah to the court of our Prophet
    To visit His Masjid and offer salutations
    With humility, love and respect
    At His grave and of His two Companions

    Lucky indeed are those invited Hajees
    We pray we also are invited again and again.
