DO CONTINUALLY REFLECT INTO OUR HEARTS

Do continually reflect into our hearts
Because it is a source of good and evil
A receptacle for disbelief and belief
Something to be fought for between the angels and demons
The heart, its feelings is delicate
Its touch could not be felt
But it greatly affects our lives
Whoever is well versed with the journey of his heart
Understands its goodness and evilness
And seriously struggle to remove his evilness
And immediately replace it with goodness
That person will be safe from the trickery of the devil and the world
Many people do not understand the journey of their hearts including the scholars
They simply accept the good and the bad
And then to feel that everything is good
And no longer feels sinful
Here is where the need for guidance from a spiritual teacher
who knows the heart of human beings

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL

Life is beautiful

When the leaders are fair and proper and loving their own people

Parents educate their children with full of love and care

Members of the community help one another and they work together

Allah is adored, worshiped and obeyed

The Sunnah or traditions of the Prophet are followed like flowers blooming in the morning

To love and care for fellow beings becomes a culture

To forgive and asking for forgiveness becomes a tradition

The scholars are like the stars shining at night

Becoming a guide for the travelers on a journey

They are guided safely towards their destination

So that they can avoid any disruption and being lost

There are no castes in the society

Everyone has a place matching their abilities

Nothing is neglected and marginalized

Human rights are guaranteed and protected

Traveling anywhere safely without any worry

There is no interruption in the journey

Wherever you make a stop, you are greeted with Ahlan Wasahlan

You become a guest who are honored and well managed

Let us sharpen the language of our hearts

The heart speaks through feeling and emotions
The mind speaks through thinking and thoughts
The desires (nafs) speak through numerous yearnings and aspirations
The eyes speaks through shapes and colours
The tongue speaks through words and conversation
The body speaks through touch and contact
Let us speak through our hearts and be cultured
Let us refine our hearts and souls
Let our hearts and souls be the language experts

That is the way it should be, for the heart is the ruler within us
The ruler has the final say
The ruler has the lawful authority
The rest of the body should be obedient subjects
To become subjects serving the king
To become loyal soldiers

If human beings are capable of accomplishing all this
Life’s journey would be beautiful and meaningful
Everything is for God
Befitting God’s reason as to why mankind exists
To give ourselves to Allah and be His caliph.
