Youthful Reflections on Faith

A wonder called ‘Heart’

The Heart

The Heart (Photo credit: petalouda62)

”The hearts of those who believe find rest in the remembrance of Allah,

Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest”. (Q13:28)

It seeks

And soaks in

It craves

And evokes

It retains

But reflects

Sometimes pure

And very healthy

It loves

And begrudges

It reassures

Then disappoints

Its tender

Yet muscular

Carrying secrets

Close to bursting

It plots

And forgives

It fuels

And also calms

It guides

And misguides

Other times corrupt

And not so healthy

Warm feelings emerge

Dark thoughts dwell

A package of flesh

Vessel of fluids

Pumping in rhythm

With a perfect pattern

A whirlwind

Of emotions

Alive with desires

Full of inclinations

Fostering trust

And faithful submission

Fashioned intricately

By the Best of Fashioner,

The Bestower of Forms (Al-Musawwir)

Indeed there is a piece of flesh in the body which if it is good, then the whole body is good, but if it is corrupt then the whole body is corrupt. Indeed it is the heart. (Bukhari)


The not so bling bling world

In a world of heavily decorated outfits & accessories laden with precious jewels,

Live shabbily dressed populations – striving daily in their tattered outfits.

Among the bright lights – from skylights & party lights to street lights,

Are unique eyes revelling in the brightness of the glowing moon & stars.

Surrounded by glitter and glamour,

Yet seeking the best gems to feed the soul

– For an empty soul harbours no light.

Day to day we charge along,

Blinded temporarily by all the glow around

While the deeper glow emerges from within.

As it emerges and the glow intensifies ,

It touches all those around with the best of feelings.

This tranquillity reaches out in the most meaningful ways,

Creating the best of long lasting connections.

Not fancy wrapped and without sparkly effects;

Never touched up or revamped to suit tastes.

It’s never all about the bling, but a heart wrapped in contentment;

Brightened with sparks of submission and love.

An immense radiance glowing in uniqueness… called Faith.
