Is there to You an illuminated path?

The year has elapsed and it has been fast, as always. To review 2016, I saw fit to translate a poem by Sayyed Hussein Fadl-Allah in which he beautifully pictures the passing of time and I find myself playing it every now and then. It deserves a translation, and so please do read and enjoy!


I, my Lord, am treading my way towards sublimity,
And from You is the ultimate sublime
So guide me to the path.

My steps are perplexed,
Confusion and wretchedness is my life.
Whenever I rest at night,
I meet You, holding a heart rippling with purity.

Like the morning, the sun lights its eyelids,
And the sky flourishes on its sides
And if the day swayed me with the people,
And the whims longed for their fouls,
Indeed I am lost.

My steps run wild,
And the light may conceal plight.

Quick tongue; thinking amid the noise may conceal the nonsense
Strife with a thought,
I do not understand
How the discourse of guidance
became veiled with facades.

And I find myself carrying my sins over my back,
Propelling with weariness
And then the night returns,
And in the private conversations, the heart is free,
And on the lips is a call,
Shamefulness has muffled my conversations with You,
Can shamefulness be my intercessor to You?

I seek forgiveness,
Even if the space became filled with the stench of my sins.
And I?
Who am I, but one in need for mercy and pardon.

It is sufficient for my heart to pray
You are my Lord.
You have created my life, and my existence,
And your blessings have surpassed all thanks,
Yet my ungratefulness continued and I wasn’t thankful.

Is there to You an illuminated path?

So if you wanted to torture my body because of its ill temptations,
I will be content with praying.
Let my tongue pray to You my Lord,
And do with me whatever you please,
Because praying to You is a delight.

  1. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: [email protected] or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS
