His Paragon of His Praise

A piece I wrote a while back… 🙂

His Paragon of His Praise
Show Allah how you feel

Remember Me and I will remember you… (Quran 2:152)

Take a quick glance out the window. Hasn’t Allah made it beautiful today? If your eyes are dazzled, why are you indoors?!

So flee to Allah… (Quran 51:50)

Sprint out the door. Just keep running until you find yourself somewhere beautiful. Let the sun smile down on you, feel the clouds fly over your head and let the summer beauty saturate your eyes.

Let Allah’s creation tell you how you feel about Him.

Do you feel it? Do feel the beauty of Allah’s creation? How can you express the joy you feel? What words could possibly describe all this !

You shout out—declare to the audience of the Heavens and the Earth the magnitude of His Embrace!

Subhana Allahi adada ma khalqa fi’samai

Glory be to Allah as many times as the number of what He has created in the Heavens

This sky is expanding unrestrained to show His Glory

Wa Subhana Allahi adada ma khalaqa fi’l ardhi
Glory be to Allah as many times as the number of what He has created in the Earth

That grass is gentle in humility to His Majesty

Wa Subhana Allahi ma adada ma bayna dhaliq

Glory be to Allah as many times as the number of what is between them

Hear the leaves rustle in the wind enamored by His Closeness!

Wa Subhana Allah ma adada ma huwa khaliq
Glory be to Allah as many times as the number of what He will create

And let the beauty of this world announce His Beauty to come

Wa Allahu Akbar mithlu dhaliq
Allah is the Most Great, a similar number of times

All creation is amazed and inspired by His Affection

Walhamdulillah mithlu dhaliq

Praise be to Allah, a similar number of times

Eager, surprised and touched at His Unending Mercy

Wa la illaha illallahu mithlu dhaliq

And there is no God but Allah, a similar number of times

Permanently excited for the Eternally Besought

Wa la howla wa la quwatta illah billah mithlu dhaliq

There is no might and no power except in Allah, a similar number of times

Passionately charmed and comforted knowing the gentleness of The Creator and The Inheritor

(Dhikr taken from At-Tirmidhi, Abu Dawud. At-Tirmidhi said, “This is a hasan hadith”)

Seest thou not that it is Allah Whose praises all beings in the heavens and on earth do celebrate…each knows its prayer and its glorification. God is full aware of everything they do. (Quran 24:41)

  1. Subhanallah what a beautiful truly inspiring piece 🙂

  2. Mashallah wa bi Hamdihi!

  3. I was re-visiting this post again and this thought came to my mind. In the same vein as, fa firru ila Allah, I find this: wa Rabbika fa Kabbir!

    What do you think?

    • I like your thinking brother!! 😀
