Dear Ruqaiyah, this moment you’re in right now, this is the moment to do something. To start something. Stop waiting for tomorrow, next week, or next month. Start now.
Dear Ruqaiyah, happiness is here. Right here, where you are now. It’s not a destination you need to reach ‘someday’. It’s not some place you need to travel to, or arrive at. You simply have to be here, now; you simply need to breathe in, breathe out, and remember your Lord. Here, now. Be happy.
The Earth Poem
The One who created the earth
The One who gave me birth
You fashioned the trees
You sprout out beauty from seeds
The One who paints the sky
Leaving notes of love for us, so high
A glorious ball of fire
Leaves me with an insatiable desire
Knowledge of who
The One who lights up the night sky
And lights up my life
I want to challenge the liars
Who say that this is all science
Do they ever stop to enquire
If there is something higher?
If this all happened with a bang, then why here?
On any other planet, I would not be a survivor
You tell stories of love
From the ground to above
It’s the most romantic thing I’ve ever heard of
You colour the oceans
Cause them to erupt with explosions
Your Beauty fills me with all sorts of emotions
And anyone who ponders
Will have no choice but to surrender
