The Soul of Prayer

November 4, 2019

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“Someone asked me what is more excellent than prayer. The answer is … that the soul of prayer is better than prayer … Another answer is that faith is better than prayer, for prayer is obligatory at five specific times a day whereas faith is uninterrupted. One can be excused from prayer for a valid reason, and it also allowed to postpone prayer. Faith without prayer merits reward, whereas prayer without faith, such as the prayer of the hypocrites, does not. Prayer differs according to religion, but faith does not change by religion. Its states, its focus, and so forth are immutable.”

–– Rumi, Fihi ma fini, 33 (trans. Thackston)

This Moment

May 25, 2019

We are not promised tomorrow
Nor even the next hour

We have only this moment
For good or ill

To spend in kindness or anger
In calmness or spite

Of such moments
Our life is made

To move forward
Or stand still

To be remembered
In memory and blood

To be counted or discounted
When we pass on

Choose wisely
Make it count
