To Do

 

So where are you going?

~ (The Qur’an 81:26)

There are places to go

and things to do

But can you choose your battles well?

 

No but destiny will meet you halfway

Like a burglar

with a family of five to feed

Desperate enough to hurt

But never enough to kill

 

Who knew the ground will conspire to get you down

That you’d be watching your now riderless high horse

All your lesser evils

dragging you to divine abattoirs

vices and all

 

The one with large meat knives

made of loss and hurt and razor sharp darkness

laying your ego on the butcher’s block

 

slicing through all that wronged you

All that you wronged

let the abyss it created

flow till the very last drop is out

 

Now for the spring you must feel

Now for the places you must visit

and revisit

 

 

The masjids

The classrooms

The truth rallies

 

The books

The hearts

The consciences

 

Or again the slaughterhouses?

 

Mecca

Medina

The foot of the Kabah

 

Your grave

Your Maker

Your heaven

In no particular order, in no particular order

 


Eid Al Adha Mubarak everyone! 

Just something I wrote recently inspired by the sight of the kaabah during hajj. I don’t realize how badly I want to go until I see the kaabah this time every year and then it feels just…I am sure that’s how every muslim must feel whether they’ve made the hajj or not.

May we be one of the hajjis soon. Ameen
