Every heartbeat reminds me of
how Your Love consumes me!

– Written by Abidah/Savera @ 16.08.2018


Reach Him

If you were not to reach Him until after all your bad traits vanish and your claims disappear, you would never reach Him. Rather when He wants you to reach Him, He covers your traits with His traits and makes you reach Him with that which is from Him to you and not that which is from you to Him.

– Imām ibn Átāíllāh al-Iskandarī al-Shādhilī rahīmahu Llāh –



Allah rooted their love in my heart’s entirety,
Which continued to grow since before eternity.
أثبت الله في في قلبي محبتهم
فإنها لم تزل تربو من القدم

– The Burda al-Hasaniyya Wa’l-Husayniyya of Shaykh Salih al-Jafar –

‘Id Mubarak

‘Id is not the wearing of new clothes
Nor the consumption of sumptuous delights
But rather the hastening to our Lord in droves
And maintaining His remembrance in the days and nights
Praising His Prophet ﷺ with tongues incessant
Upholding his merciful legacy in past, future and present
Say!: All gratitude is due to the One who has allowed His servant
To fulfill His commandment and avoid His prohibition
Breathing souls into our life with hearts fervent
And granting us the honour of realising the Prophetic ﷺ mission

Important du’a this Ramadan


Oh my Lord,

Keep me from becoming talkative and possessed with the idea that I must express myself on every subject. Release me from the craving to straighten out everyone’s affairs. Keep me from the recital of endless detail.

Give me wings to get to the point. Seal my lips when I am inclined to tell of my aches and pains. They are increasing with the years and my love to speak of them grows sweeter as time goes by. Make me thoughtful but not nosy; helpful but not bossy.

In the end, make me someone You and Your Beloved (salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) will accept and make my afairs easy for me in order to reach You.



يا أكرم الخلق مالي من ألوذ به
سواك عند حلول الحادث العمم

O Noblest of Creation, whose protection can I seek But yours,
when the Universal Event come to past?

— Imām Muḥammad ibn Saʿīd al Būṣīrī rahimahu Llah – Qaṣīdah al Burdah –

Some reflections upon being righteousness


Al-Imam al-Shirazi rahimahi Llah once said:

Once, I stayed up the night with my father, while everyone around us remained asleep.

I said to him:

Not a single person got up to even pray two rak’ahs?

He responded:

It would have been better to sleep, my son, than to speak negatively of others.

‘Umar ibn Abd-Aziz once said:

We lived in a time when we considered righteousness, not in fasting or prayer, but in withholding oneself from speaking poorly of others, for a person who spends his nights praying and days fasting will have his deeds go bankrupt on the Day of Resurrection if he doesn’t protect his tongue.
