Peace, one and all…

Ibn Ata’illah’s Hikam also contains private devotional poetry (munajat).  These prayers are profound and beautiful.

My God,
from the diversity of created things
and the changes of states,
I know that it is Your desire
to make Yourself known to me in everything
so that I will not ignore You in anything.
