Allah introduces Himself to me by sending me personal, secret messages.
Whatever I experience in life is a message that conveys His Names and Attributes, His Beauty and Majesty.
The messages are always present. But am I deciphering His calligraphy?
How many messages did I miss today? Yesterday? Throughout my life?
And if I did open His letters, how much was lost in my hasty perusal?
To read, understand and experience demands energy and focus.
Jumu‘a is His gift – His reading tutorial – to me every week: To facilitate the illumination and jam‘ (gatheredness) of my heart. To read, understand and experience His letters of the week past; the letters of the week ahead; and every letter, yet to come, in the remaining days of my life.
May the spiritual rays of Jumu‘a illuminate our inner eyes to read, know and experience. Amin.
