You Are Not

Peace, one and all…


You Are Not

You are not a thing
I could hold
and You are not a place
I could reach.

You are not a time
that I could pass
and You are not an absence
that I could fill.

You are the shining moon
in a vale of darkness,
and You are the gift of rain
in life’s burning desert.

You are the Source
and there is no other.
You are my Beloved,
and my heart is lost in You.

(Abdur Rahman, 23rd October 2007)

  1. Alhamdulillah! What a poem of Truth. Indeed, Allah is all and nothing, all time and no time, all space and no space, light and darkness. La illaha illAllah!

    Ya Haqq!
