Peace Be With You
// September 15th, 2008 // Blog
A place of peace.
Lying on an open plain.
Cool grass beneath bare feet.
Arms outstretched above your head.
One hand playfully fiddles with smooth blades.
The other strokes long, soft, silky strands of hair.
A slight smile rests gently on your lips.
Eyes closed, but filled with light.
A light that shines so brightly.
But doesn't burn your eyes.
It bathes your face like a warm embrace.
Imagine this moment…
A moment of peace.
Not a care.
Not a worry.
Not an ounce of stress.
The light envelopes you.
Then you realise…
The sky is not a canopy of blue atmosphere.
But the Throne of Ar-Rahman.
And the light is not that of a brilliant star.
But the Noor of the One that you have craved for all eternity.
And that this is no ordinary garden.
But it is the only place of true peace.
Your real home.
Waiting for you to return…
