Holy Ramadan Card :: Rumi's Poetry

Caption: "O moon-faced Beloved, the month of Ramadan has arrived.
Cover the table and open the path of praise."

The great Muslim poet Jalal al-Din Rumi sang about Ramadan in the 13th century AD (translation by A.J. Arberry):

"The month of fasting has come, the emperor's banner has arrived;
withhold your hand from food, the spirit's table has arrived.

The soul has escaped from separation and bound nature's hands;
the heart of error is defeated, the army of faith has arrived.

Fasting is our sacrifice, it is the life of our soul;
let us sacrifice all our body, since the soul has arrived as guest.

Fortitude is as a sweet cloud, wisdom rains from it,
because it was in such a month of fortitude that the Koran arrived.

...Wash your hands and your mouth, neither eat nor speak;
seek that speech and that morsel which has come to the silent ones."


The lit candle represents the Light of Imamat. Let us actualize this Light into our spiritual hearts, heads, & consciences so that we may also be able to submit spiritual & luminous nazranas in the Diamond Jubilee.
