Welcome Jack :) My Grandson is Born!!

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

Alhamdulillah! Praise God that last evening, March 19th, my first grandson was born, Jack Christopher Karchmar :)
Mother Christine and child are doing well, and for them, here again is a poem written for the birth announcement of baby Jack’s father, my son Matt, when he was born:

When a child is born, a Sun begins
In some dark and distant galaxy
And the ancient Weaver, warned thus,
Strikes Her loom
Pausing surely to gauge the thread for strength
And the needed courage to hold Life’s dream
Then spins rejoicing on the wheel
‘Ere the first heartbeat of creation.

– for Matthew, 1972 (and Jack, 2009)

May Allah bless the parents and the child with long life, good health, and love in a world or peace. May he be raised and grow up in righteousness, as a blessing to His parents and a joy to his family and friends. Ameen.

Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, “A servant will have his rank raised after death and will say, ‘O my Lord how has this come about for me?’ and He says, ‘through your sons after you seeking forgiveness for you.'” [ibn Majah]

Ya Haqq!

    Dearest Brother Irving,

    Into the nest of love which your family have created,
    a new soul is born…

    May he grow in the quiet knowledge of his strength

    May he rest neath the sheltering arms of the dignity which his ancestors have planted beside him,

    May love sit softly on his shoulder and whisper
    her secrets in his ear,

    And may the Grace of the
    Infinite One
    cause his eyes to shine

    With the wild hope
    that cannot be
    tamed or

    My deepest love to you and yours,
