I’m coming out…

You’ll notice not much is happening here in this blog after a good year of frequent posting. Well, during Ramadan, it was as if I was on a ship that was suddenly in the midst of a spiritual storm and things went all topsy turvy.  Yet it was in a good way, not a bad way at all.

Stay tuned…

and the Matrix of creation was Love….

Then creation recognized its Creator
in its own forms and appearances.
For in the beginning, when God said, “Let it be!”
and it came to pass, the means and the Matrix of creation was Love,
because all creation was formed through Her as in the twinkling of an eye.

A Prayer to Aditi for help and protection

1  Aditi is sky, and air’s mid-region, Aditi is the father, son, and mother,

Aditi all the Gods and the Five Nations,  Aditi what is now and what is future.

2  We call for help the Queen of Law and Order, great mother of all those whose ways are righteous,

Far-spread, unwasting strong in her dominion, Aditi wisely leading, well protecting.

3  Sinless may we ascend, for weal, the vessel, rowed with good oars, divine, that never leaketh,

Earth, our strong guard, incomparable Heaven, Aditi wisely leading, well protecting.

4  Let us bring hither, in pursuit of riches, Aditi with our word, the mighty mother,

Her in whose lap the spacious air is lying: may she afford us triply-guarding shelter!aditi

Islam and trees…..

Did you not see that to God submit what is in the heavens and what is in the earth, and the sun and the moon and the stars and the mountains and the trees and what moves, and many people, and many who have deserved the retribution. Whoever God disgraces, then none can honor him. God does what He pleases. (Quran 22:18)

“I was throwing stones at a date-palm belonging to some of the Ansar. They tool me along with them to the Prophet (ﷺ). He said: “O Rafi’! Why were you throwing stones at their date-palm?’” He said: “I said: ‘Out of hunger, O Messenger of Allah! He said: ‘Do not throw stones at them, eat what falls. May Allah fill you and quench your thirst.’”

The Prophet (ﷺ) used to stand by a tree or a date-palm on Friday. Then an Ansari woman or man said. “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! Shall we make a pulpit for you?” He replied, “If you wish.” So they made a pulpit for him and when it was Friday, he proceeded towards the pulpit (for delivering the sermon). The datepalm cried like a child! The Prophet (ﷺ) descended (the pulpit) and embraced it while it continued moaning like a child being quietened. The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “It was crying for (missing) what it used to hear of religious knowledge given near to it.”

The Prophet said: “Whoever says: ‘Glory is to Allah, the Magnificent, and with His Praise (Subhan Allahil-Azim, Wa Bihamdih)’ a date-palm tree is planted for him in Paradise.”
