To have the comfort of knowing that Allah knows is the point. Ishq!– Shaykh Amin Kholwadia, Tafsir Surah Qāf
These six stanzas inspired by Shaykh Amins’s tafsīr of Surah Qāf, Session 2.
Send prayers and send blessings on his name Before you heed this message Qasimiyy Renewal is a constant in this game Of time that guarantees the loss of me This love for newness is an endless song We long for change until the day we die Proclaiming hope in God with every dawn And crescent moons that sickle days gone by What’s more: the kalimah renews our faith Like rain that falls upon the barren earth Salaah renews our time and blesses space Zakaah renews our wealth and checks our worth And Ramadan renews our lifelong goal When we obsess to find that night of Power And Hajj recasts the pilgrim’s weary soul As new born child's that lives its foremost hour Now khalid mourn the arrogance of man With empty claim I am with Allah Let’s Return to the beginning of Ihsān: Allah knows me better than I myself Ishq! The stilling comfort when you know That Allah knows and that’s the point my friend To make yourself a cushion from each woe And say Allah is with me in the end
