Ramadan Mubarak @ 1438/2017

As-salamu ‘alaykum,

When the door of fasting is opened in the month of Ramadan, the soldiers that carry the lights of divine majesty descend with their chains and restrain the mouths of the lower selves, thereby preventing them from their worldly foods and increasing their yearning for the beauty of the foods of Paradise.

—Shaykh Muhammad al-Qandusi

May Allah bless you all with wonderful days and nights of ibadah and acceptance

The Majestic Mir’aj

Billede1

He ﷻ drew you ﷺ ever close that night
To a nearness never granted before

Zam Zam you ﷺ purified that night
To purity it never possessed before

Buraaq quivered in awe that night
Awe like this it never felt before

You ﷺ lit up all the heavens so bright
By your ﷺ light never created before

He ﷻ expanded and filled your ﷺ chest with light
To reach a station never traversed before

You ﷺ surpassed all others in flight
To Majesty ﷻ never witnessed before

You ﷺ entered the sacred sphere that night
To His ﷻ prescance no being ever felt before

You ﷺ saw and did not swerve in sight
At vision of Him ﷻ never seen before

He ﷻ enveloped you ﷺ in closeness that night
At two bows length never reached before

You ﷺ spent tender moments during that night
In a proximity never experienced before

Creation stood ‘still’ in submission that night
For no Beloved had been loved like this before

The Night of His ﷺ Blessed Arrival

Hadhrat Uthmān ibn Abī al-Ās said: “My mother related to me:

I was there the night Āmina bint Wahb gave birth to the Messenger of Allāh ﷺ. Everything I laid eyes on inside the house was filled with light. Truly I was looking at the stars approaching me and I was saying surely they are going to fall on me!
