RETURN TO THE EMBRACE OF RAMADAN

“We will remember the day when it was so easy to disclose disagreement in Pain and Poison
Than to strive hard in disclosing through Dignity and Grace
In HEALING
In patient expectation of relief
We will remember the day when forgiveness was a lavish fashion
On an empty glass doll
Ridiculed as an insult
In receiving and giving

We don’t want to regret the time when we were to busy
To REMEMBER
We take a pause in action
Until its permissibility is clear
Free from the haze of doubt

We return to the First and the Last
The Outer and the Inner
The point of return and the point of origin
To whom all hearts belong
The sanctuary of spirits
The resting place of burdens
The giving of all gifts
And the bestowal of blessings

Night ends with the darkling of the day
Chill of winter takes its leave when summer comes around

We submit
Before we return to the state
OF A KERNEL WITH NO SHELL
Like a
BIRD FLYING FREE FROM ITS EMPTY CAGE”

From : "In the Precious Garden" HJS (1993). Inspired by the lecture of Sheikh Qadir Al-Jilani.
