Prophet Muhammed (pbuh)

everywhere,

I see you in-between the trees
I look in places of green.
Hiding from you in the critique of me
wondering,
if it’s a daughters smile,
a friends greeting,
or want of a teachers love.
Gentle, kind and loved,
you remind me of my fathers eyes.
He said, ‘little one, look everywhere’.
So as I continue to climb ladders
searching,
outside and within,
pondering,
how the distance is my refusal
I sing…


Allaahumma salli ‘alaa Sayyidina Muhammadin
wa ‘alaa ali Sayyidina Muhammadin

listening…

Listen, open a window to God
and begin to delight yourself
by gazing upon Her through the opening.
The business of love is to make that window in the heart,
for the breast is illumined by the beauty of the Beloved.
Gaze incessantly on the face of the Beloved!
Listen, this is in your power, my friend!
[Rumi, Mathnawi VI, 3095-3097]

Fatima, may God preserve her secret…

az-Zuhra – The resplendent one

al-Batul – The Devoted one

U`mm Abi-ha – The mother of her father

 

The youngest daughter of Khadija and Muhammad – blessings upon them both.

It is said that Fatima greatly resembled her father and that her ways of sitting and standing and speaking were quite similar.

“ I have not seen any one of God’s creation resemble the Messenger of God more in speech, conversation, and manner of sitting than Fatimah, may God be pleased with her. When the Prophet saw her approaching, he would welcome her, stand up and kiss her, take her by the hand and sit her down in the place where he was sitting.”
A’isha – blessings upon her.

She would do the same when the Prophet came to her. She would stand up and welcome him with joy and kiss him.

The Prophet had a special love for Fatima. He once said:

“Whoever pleases Fatima has indeed pleased God
and whoever has caused her to be angry has indeed angered God…

…Fatima is a part of me.

Whatever pleases her please me
and whatever angers her angers me,
and whoever injures her injures me.”

Fatima is regarded by some Sufis and theologians as the first spiritual head (qutb) of the Sufi fellowship.

The Prophet extolled her as one of the four most exemplary women in history along with Mary, mother of Jesus; her own mother, Khadija, and the wife of Pharaoh, who rescued and raised Moses.

It was Fatima who eloquently delivered her fathers eulogy…

Fatima (c. 608-633 C.E.), may God preserve her secret.

The Beloved of the Beloved of Allah…

The Beloved of the Beloved of Allah – Aisha, blessings upon her the Prophets (pbuh) wife.  She was a top Islamic scholar, an inspiration to champions of women’s rights, a military commander riding on camelback, and a fatwa-issuing jurist, Aisha’s intellectual standing and religious authority were astonishing, by the standards of both our own time and hers.
