How can a Muslim lose? For, for a Muslim, life is love.
A Muslim looks above – and loves God above.
A Muslim looks below – and loves God whose creation he surveys as far as the eye can see.
A Muslim looks up and sees the sun, the moon, the planets, the stars – and the uncharted galaxies.
And a Muslim’s heart fills with awe and admiration at the grandeur, majesty and the interminable flawlessness of the celestial world above.
And a Muslim’s heart brims with God’s love.
A Muslim looks down and sees the earth and its many shapes, forms, contours –and denizens, from humans to beasts, from the animals to plants, and from the living to the non-living.
And a Muslim’s heart rejoices at what it sees and dances with the daffodils, as a poet once put it.
And then a Muslim’s heart runs over with God’s love.
And it rocks with the love of all things above and below.
And it hums to the tune of all things that are of God’s creation and design.
Ya Jibaalu Awwibee Ma’ahu Wattayir.
A Muslim does not adore or worship anything or anyone other than God.
But a Muslim absolutely and unconditionally loves God – and loves all things that God designed and created.
