Drawing the Prophet's Face (AS) : What You Are Robbing Us Of

Drawing the Prophet’s Face (AS) : What You Are Robbing Us Of

May 20, 2010  |  Thoughts  |  5 Comments

One of a Muslim’s greatest hope and reward of spiritual accomplishment is to see the Prophet’s (AS) face in their best dreams, when they have arrived at a station of purity.

This message is to those with a heart.

Don’t rob of us of this hope and emotion by forcing your politics on our spiritual experiences.

Don’t shatter and intrude upon our dreams with your violent messages.

To those without a heart, I leave you to your fate.


LOOKING FOR YOUR FACE

From the beginning of my life
I have been looking for your face
but today I have seen it

Today I have seen
the charm, the beauty,
the unfathomable grace
of the face
that I was looking for

Today I have found you
and those who laughed
and scorned me yesterday
are sorry that they were not looking
as I did

I am bewildered by the magnificence
of your beauty
and wish to see you
with a hundred eyes

My heart has burned with passion
and has searched forever
for this wondrous beauty
that I now behold

I am ashamed
to call this love human
and afraid of God
to call it divine

Your fragrant breath
like the morning breeze
has come to the stillness of the garden
You have breathed new life into me
I have become your sunshine
and also your shadow

My soul is screaming in ecstasy
Every fiber of my being
is in love with you

Your efflugence
has lit a fire in my heart
for me
the earth and sky

My arrow of love
has arrived at the target
I am in the house of mercy
and my heart
is a place of prayer

Maulana Rumi (ks)
——————–

If the face of Muhammad is reflected on a wall, the heart of the wall will become alive.

The wall, through his blessed reflection, will have such great happiness that even the wall will be rescued from hypocrisy.

It was a shame for the wall to have two faces while the pious and the pure had only one.

Maulana Rumi (ks)
