A Goodly Tree September 18, 2008Posted by shadows15 in Gems and Jewels, Misc, Personality Development, Sisters Section, Weekly Wisdom.
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
(A Brief Reflection of Surah Ibrahim verse 23)
أَلَمْ تَرَ كَيْفَ ضَرَبَ اللّهُ مَثَلاً كَلِمَةً طَيِّبَةً كَشَجَرةٍ طَيِّبَةٍ أَصْلُهَا ثَابِتٌ وَفَرْعُهَا فِي السَّمَاء
Plant a seed and watch it be,
Growing high for all to see,
Uncontained and truly free,
Branching out … A Goodly Tree,
Start anew and plant a seed,
A little rain is all we need,
Growth is surely to proceed.
Change is near and gaining speed
Plant a seed deep in your chest,
It will quickly manifest,
Into speech that is the best
Laying other words to rest,
Large returns once you invest,
Heavy spoken is THIS WORD,
Whose focal point is in the verb,
Far removed from absurd.
High above it is heard.
Accidental Reflections: Imagine a believer who plants a seed (i.e. the word “No deity to be worshipped but Allah”) deep with firm roots in his heart. This seed then manifests itself into branches reaching to the sky (i.e. good deeds and good statements). No matter the season, the believer remains like a tree always giving “fruit”………May Allah sprout a forest of Goodly Trees throughout.
