THE SECRET TO TRANQUILITY

English Poetry

 

 

 DEVOTION TO ALMIGHTY (حمدِ باری تعالیٰ 

 
(1) 
 
 
I am active, for the name sake
I can’t move, neither can shake
Puppet I am, in my Lord’s hands
Can’t sleep at will, neither can wake
 
In my life, I don’t have a role
Everything related, is in His control
I can’t look forward, in doing anything
It looks, in life, I don’t have a goal
 
My life is guided, as per His command
I am protected, from awry demand
Nothing I can do, on my own
My heart is guarded, against any strand
 
 Word of my mouth, is not my own
My lord controls, even my tone
His mercy covers, from all sides
The evil is kept out of my zone
 
My Lord is active, in my name
My breaths are mine, I can’t claim
My vision and hearing, are controlled
My life moves on, in a frame

He is one, and only one
Absolutely unique, looks like none
His Absolute Being, has no elements
Compound He is not, Has no fragrance
Neither is born, nor Has children
Has no look-alike, equals or brethren
 
His purgative magnificence, can't be seen
In this conjecture, He's Absolutely Unseen
Not knowing, His refulgence, and His grace
People deny, by astonished face
The facts are complex, to understand, thus
The ignorant monotheists, make the fuss
 
He can't be confined, into a place
He is pure from shape, figure and face
Dwell-less Unity, is beyond space
But is omnipresent, in glitter and grace
This looks complex, but  it's the fact
This understanding, keeps faith in-tact
 
He can't be sensed, without a heart
Which has courage, and purity apart
He is pure, from human-like, lineage
And is found, in confinements breakage
He is above, your conceptual forms
His Unity is, beyond the Cosmic norms
 
How glorious,  is Your Unity
You are there, in eternity
You are Living, and Omnipresent
We are servants, totally dependent
In our attributes, and in existence
Every moment, for our sustenance

The Unification of Almighty,
Is a complex subjectivity.
You should have a strong heart,
To understand this reality.
 
His formlessness, is uniform
Free from, body and form
Has no peers, and no partners 
Can’t be visualized,  in this norm
 
He knows Himself and creatures
Also knows, individual natures,
Stay away from philosophers
Protect your faith,  and postures
 
The annotations of Unity
Know them with certainty
Internal and external 
God is free from duality
 
You visualize God;  its internal
His creation;  its external
In between are, three States
All of them, non-dimensional
 
The first state is 'Infinity'
The second is 'Indefinity'
The third is 'Active Multiplicity'
All are free from periodicity
 
He knows Himself, its 'Infinity'
Knows his traits, its 'Indefinity'
He knows about His creatures
It is 'Active Multiplicity'
 
The divine states are annotations
These are precise illustrations
Have no bearing on, oneness of God
They are knowledge notations

The first belief, about God is that, He was all alone
There was no one, no creation, to Himself, was He known
 
The 'Essence',  of God, is known as His, 'Unity'
In elucidation, 'Unity' has no scope for duality
 
Engrossed in His Unity, 'The Hidden Treasure', Almighty
Wanted, He be known, in His attributes', of multiplicity
 
He thus, created the Earth, and whatever there is,  in the skies
And many a worlds, full of things, we can't see, through our eyes
 
His attributes are that, He, ‘Knows all',  and is 'Living'
He Hears all', ‘He Seeing all', 'Omnipotent' and 'Speaking'
 
  'Powerful' and 'Merciful',  His names depict His might
He is called, by different names, because of, this insight
 
He has knowledge of Himself, and about His creation
Everything created, is His bestowal and sanctification
 
He knew the facts, of this Cosmos, in collective form
And knew us, before creation, in our, destined norm
 
This world is but, a depiction of,  the 'knowledge of God'
It can’t survive, nor exist, without our Lord
 
Where are we living, did you ever,  try to know
In His knowledge, where from, none can ever go
 
All the shapes, in Cosmos are but, images of, His intention
Their ever changing nature shows, His attributes' reflection
 
All these things, are proof that, there is only one God
Let us worship Him only,  because He is our Lord
 
No space, nor form, can ever confine Lord
No shape, nor body, can ever depict God.

My Lord is with me, all the time
Be it a day, or night time
His presence is,  so serene
I fade away, most of the time
 
He calls me, His chosen friend
Morn and evening, we spend
He is amazing, and so kind
In His company, I get blend
 
I am happy, when He is around
In His absence, I am confound
He is the life,  of my life
Without Him, I am dumbfound
 
The danger is, when I am with men
Worldly people, businessmen
They only talk of worldly wealth
It  happens every, now and then
 
They avoid listening, about our Lord
Their dealings are, recklessly odd
Their focus is,  profane intrigues
From worldly glitter, they defraud
 
Faithless believers, are other nuisance
They are devoid of common sense
They spread ignorance, and falsehood
And keep arguing, in self defense
 
Keep me my Lord, away from all
In between us, they create wall
You and me, and no one else
Far away, from every eye ball

It's a unique way of Servant-hood
I don't exist,  the way I should
I don't have, a choice or 'will' 
The usual norm, of  human-hood
 
Many a time, I attempt something
But find myself, in another thing
His 'will' prevails, in all the things
With my effort, I achieve nothing
 
A toy I am, walking on ground
Have no control, on things around
The fact is that, I am not inbound
In my body, that's profound
 
People can't, understand my talk
They find no root, and no stalk 
I show them way, to reach their Lord
They find it strange,  out of  track
 
I hardly find a person, who dares,
To walk on the way, and he cares,
To follow the path,  ignoring scares,
Succeeds in life and he glares.

Blinds are lifted from my eyes
I see Him within, and in Skies
I find His aid, and His advise
In every affair and all my ties
 
His guidance comes in many a norm
He inspires my heart, in every form
His decree is direct, and conform
As per time, place and form
 
I comply with His 'Intention'
Abide by it, with attention
My faculties are ceased, in suspension
Yet people call me,  a 'man of action'
 
When I say I exist, I am truthful
When I say I don't, it is insightful
Whatever I am, it is meaningful
As a matter of existence, it is fruitful
 
Majesty of my Lord, is so sublime
His wonders are seen, all the time
How amazed I am, everytime
I can't express, in word or rhyme

When I get busy, in my daily chore 
A bell rings,   in my  heart's core
I leave all work,  and attend the call
A voice is heard,  like never before
 
I see my Lord is smiling gleam
Bursting bright, through every seam
How are you, He asks with care
worn and weary, tired you seem
 
Fine; My Lord, I am just fine
Whatever I have, belongs to Thine
My longing for you, was at its heights
You called on me,  just in time
 
I know the reason, hence I call
What do you want, tell me all
Come up Here; lets go somewhere
I love your company, after all
 
I want to be, away somewhere
Just you and me,  and no one there
I look at you;  You look at me
And I get swayed,  by love and care
 
I'm always there,  with you, in you
No one dares, to come near you
You're made for me, just for Me
You be anywhere, I am with you
 
Then I see myself, in front of Him
He holds my hand;  and I go with Him
To places beyond the edge of time
Where no one is there, but me and Him
 
He speaks with me in a Lovely way
And in His arms, I fade away
Me and My Lord, and no one else
That's how I pass, my night and day
