  • Spring's Gift

    Shaykh Hamza Yusuf on the Coming of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him)



    I envy the sand that met his feet


    Of birds that hovered above his head
    Of spiders who spun their sacred web

    To save him from his enemies
    I envy clouds formed from the seas

    That gave him cover from the heat
    Of a sun whose light could not compete

    With his, whose face did shine so bright
    That all was clear in pitch-black night

    I envy sightless trees that gazed
    Upon his form completely dazed

    Not knowing if the sun had rose
    Or if the sky was one with those

    Who knelt, who prayed, and fasted too
    Simply because he told them to

    With truth and kindness, charity
    From God who gave such clarity

    His mercy comes in one He sent
    To mold our hearts more heaven bent

    I envy all there at his side
    Who watched the turning of the tide

    As truth prevailed and falsehood fled
    And hope restored life to the dead

    And men and women found their place


    I envy the cup that gave him drink
    His thoughts that helped us all to think

    To be one thought that passed his mind
    Inspiring him to act so kind

    For me this world is not one jot
    If I could simple be a thought

    From him to God throughout the ages
    As revelation came in stages

    I pity all who think it odd
    To hear him say there is one God

    Or he was sent by God to men



    That helps good men to see his light


    And he will be the one who saves

    Humanity from sinful pride
    Muhammad has God on his side

    So on this day be blessed and sing
    For he was born to grace our Spring


    In a dome of green like his on earth

    - Sh. Hamza Yusuf

                I remember when Sh. Hamza recited this at the conference. My heart skipped a beat just hearing the first line. SubhanAllah! :)
                What does 'freedom' mean?

                Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
                Restricted by the sky?

                Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
                Not enough river to explore?

                Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
                but death for the fish,

                The sea is wide for the fish
                but will engulf the bird.

                We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
                We can only express our nature as it was created.

                The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
                freedom from slavery to other than the One,
                Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
                and a horizon that extends to the next life,
                Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.
