Mirror of my soul – Stories of you, me, the world and eternity

When our search for The One leads us to ourselves

If you must love her,

then be it for His sake only.

For the reflection of His light in her eyes

For the promise of lazy days in Paradise.

For a union that fulfils half your deen

For His reasons, unknown and unseen

Be it for His delight

*

If you must love her,

then be it for His sake only.

For seeing yourself mirrored in her soul

For finally making that leap from the old

For surrendering to His plan without question

For knowing She’ll guide you into salvation

Be it for His delight

*

If you must love her,

then be it for His sake only.

For the sake of two souls perfectly aligned

For the union of heart and mind

For the call Home that you always felt

To that place where long ago together you dwelt

Be it for His delight

*

And….

If I must love you,

then be it for His sake only.

For the sake of a closeness I cannot forget

For knowing I loved you long before we met

For a whispered promise I barely recall

For placing the Path above it all

Be it for His delight

*

If I must love you,

then be it for His sake only.

For the sake of a pleasure that blends into pain

For all these words written in vain

For the longing for Home and for hearing His call

For discovering my Self underneath it all

Be it for his delight

*

If I must love you,

then be it for His sake only.

For the sake of Love which floods my heart

Where distance nor time can keep us apart

For the Day of Judgement where I shan’t be afraid

When my Love for you places me in His Shade

Be it for His delight.

      Dear soul, I will take your question as a compliment. 🙂 No, I haven’t become a Muslim. Maybe I was one in a previous life, or maybe it’s vibes I am picking up from the one I feel connected to. I was always interested in Islam though and find many affinities with it. There is something about many ayahs that just speak straight to my heart. Many Muslim writers inspire me too. I am fascinated by Mystical Islam (not sure how politically correct it is that call it that), meaning Sufism. Some of the inspiration Rumi had definitely lives in me. Inshallah I will expand my knowledge more. I keep changing the poem because there’s more verses I could include but maybe I will leave those for a future poem. 🙂 Take care, stay blessed.

        May Allah guide me and you…

        If you have any questions pls dont be shy to ask…

        There is nothing in this whole world that can give you the sweetness of worshipping your Lord…

        Worshipping Allah is that what gives live to the hearts…. it is all about tauwheed…

        Tawhid (Arabic: توحيد‎ tawḥīd, meaning “unification or oneness of God”; also romanized as Tawheed, Touheed, Tauheed or Tevhid) is the indivisible oneness concept of monotheism in Islam. … The first part of the shahada (the Islamic declaration of faith) is the declaration of belief in the oneness of God.

        A chapter from the Quran, a transaltion of :

        MUHAMMAD TAQI-UD-DIN AL-HILALI AND MUHAMMAD MUHSIN KHAN,

        (8:63) And He has united their (i.e. believers’) hearts. If you had spent all that is in the earth, you could not have united their hearts, but Allah has united them. Certainly He is All-Mighty, All-Wise.
