reunion-with-the-beloved

Night whispered in my ear

don't sleep, stay awake


Listen to your heart,

its true yearnings


Enchanting moonlight

has some secret message


Mesmerizing the very moment

Listen to it, O seeker


Prostate to your beloved, O believer

Cry in agony, shed your tears


Purify your heart, purify your gaze

then veils of illusion will start to fade


If you want to uncover the secret

of this universe, just look inside you


You are a whole universe in yourself

Your shine will make other stars to blaze


You are a goldmine, dig the secrets

Explore the kingdom hidden in yourself


You are a ocean of mysteries

Be a seeker of your own mystery


If you think the door to this way

is locked, go and ask your heart


You are the key to your heart

and that's the place where


all the miracles happen

Its the home of God


Its not easy to get to your heart

don't fall asleep, if you seek this path


Night is like a beautiful maiden

don't fall to its trap,


Stay awake, its the time for the lovers

to bow down, and to please their God.

Beautiful poem as well as the photo.

A call to Ibadah. Life itself is an unconscious Ibadah for many. May we all be conscious, at each moment, of the majesty and beauty ... the inner fulfillment of Allah's Light. Alhamdullilah!

Misbah Sheikh from The World of Poets on August 18, 2021:

Beautifully written, Amara. It reminds me of Allama Iqbal’s poetry

يہ ايک سجدہ جسے تو گراں سمجھتا ہے

ہزار سجدے سے ديتا ہے آدمی کو نجات

“Ye Aik Sajda Jise Tu Garan Samajhta Hai

Hazar Sajde Se Deta Hai Admi Ko Nijat!”.

(“Prostration ’fore God you presume as irksome, tedious, burden great;

But mind, this homage sets you free from bonds of men, of might who prate!”)~Dr Allama Iqbal

Thanks for the lovely share, dear sister. Much Love! Take care and stay safe and happy.

Blessings to you
