A letter to God


 يا ودود 

Ya Wadoud

Dear Most Loving

Here I am

Wandering in the wilderness

Cold… soaking… frightened… lonely… lost

Dripping pain and sorrow

 tears

Arriving

Knocking at your door

Humbly kneeling down

Hands upraised

Face hidden with tears

 64935_522196417800751_96155374_n

Requesting of your generosity

Appealing of your kindness

Pleading of your mercy

 0001 heart

Shroud me with your bliss

Wrap me up with your pleasure

Shower me with your blessings

13174_10151506518853185_303632852_n 

Make no desire in my heart

Greater than being with you

01x 

No aspiration dearer

Than the bounty of your love

20 

Make me a mouthpiece of Your truth

A fingerprint of Your creativity

An ambassador of Your reality

 21805_304751982966997_1424667661_n

Make me a pathway of Your certainty

 A sign of Your authenticity

A whisper of Your inspiration

223294_373456346063713_715101148_n - Copy 

Make me a fountain of kindness

A lantern of guidance

A waterfall of honesty

A cascade of delight

248573_157627061045001_2057044465_n 

 Make me a footstep

Leading to Your splendour

 0000000000000000000012

Make me a pail

Pouring out love

Watching all content

  resizer_php

Make me a lamp

Glowing with tenderness and warmth

Until none is lost in darkness or despair

 76388_469324609796275_1165470094_n

Make me a cloud

Full of goodness

Raining joy

Planting affection

Flowering passion

Blooming compassion

Fruiting closeness

Picking intimacy

Feeding ecstasy and reunion

32 

Watching all fulfilled

Living whole… serene and satisfied

 307943_421199861296164_628711211_n

Dear Most Loving

It’s only through knowing you

Can distressed hearts

Find tranquillity and peace

541283_357856574297160_2071921429_n 

The wise have said:

“ if you love a thing so much, it will reveal its secrets to you”

 60551_446904885365968_749946672_n

Dear Most Loving

Here I am

An empty vessel

Lift me… fill me… use me

As You wish

My will is nothing

But Yours

 51

Dear Most Loving

I am walking towards you

Your promise is true

Come running towards me

 Hold me… embrace me

I am all Yours

  1. This poem is so beautiful ,Nahida. In todays world of contention, suffering of the poor and disenfranchised we are called to rise above our pains and anguish to call upon Allah for guidance through the many storms of our lives. Reading such poetry inspires us to be the remnant of Allah’s loving graces in humanity and protect that wondrous love that cannot hate.

    I rise up with my dearest Nahida to proclaim our oneness in Allah;s gaze, rise up to see the wonders of overcoming adversity and shouting the hallelujahs of Allah’s grace and inspirations . We rise together as one spirit fro what Allah has brought together, let none divide asunder, I love you forever dearest Nahida!!!!!!!

    May God (Allah) bless and protect them.

  9. Hey Schlomo, clearly this woman possesses a spirituality that is light years above and beyond anything you could ever wish to feel. Typical, of your kind – drenched in hatred for humanity, materialism, etc., all wrapped up in the sick, psychopathic religion known as Judaism. At the very root of it people like you are jealous because you will never understand what it feels like to be loved have a real relationship with the divine, rather than your own pathetic, childish, immature consciousness that dwells within your “holy” books of jewish supremacy and “Yahweh’s” genocidal commandments. And if you are not a jew, then you must be your average Western white/gentile jew-worshipper.

  11. i was born an Atheist, this piece of work is deeply touching and Moving ~ since i’m not a transitory /mind /matter /heaven/ hereafter/ kind of person. There is no calling from some invisible power, just what my reason and senses understand. What i took away from this was a sweet harmonic convergence of photo’s to the human words… where i began so see a pattern, in sumation, i felt the pictures completed the concept of the Empathy Gene, that conversation of child and self, caring teaching, self empowerment, self actuating, guiding, enriching, apprciating in so many ways…
    i didn’t feel it proclaimed any god as the right god, leaving me lots of commfy room. i enjoyed reading it several times, Thank you

  16. If I were God (God forbid!), I would reply:

    Why do you need to beg Me for what I gave you for free a long time ago and you allowed to be stolen away from you?
    Why do you keep bothering me with your vain prayers when you refuse to do the work I put you on Earth and in this life to carry out for your own good?
    Why do you hide behind faith that is rarely put into practice?
    Why do you refuse to show courage and are always afraid of making sacrifices?
    Why do you refuse to love your neighbour as yourself?

    You are not walking towards me but always away from me and always towards Satan?
    Is this true or not?
    Will you call Me a Liar?

    BAFS
    P.S. I saw a pseudonym above claiming he was “born an Atheist”, CAN HE PROVE THAT?

        I thank God every day and many times a day, hundreds of times, for all His Bounties. I know as I have witnessed it that all the good comes from Him and the bad from our own actions.
        For the good that God has done for me personally I am always thankful.
