I Want to Say Your Name

A Poem by Shahbano Aliani.



Shaykh Muhammad Harun

Istikharah – an Instrument of Divine Guidance

Should I… or shouldn’t I? How many times have we asked ourselves this question, or put it to someone of sound judgment, when we set out to do something we were unsure of?



Shaykh Ebrahim

Befriending Existence

We have two basic modalities that we exist in as human beings. The one modality which is the predominant modality for most people is that they function under the assumption that they exist separately from and somehow contra-distinct to the world. The other modality is that you recognize that you are not separate from the world but that there’s a oneness which connects you with all things.



Shaykh Ebrahim

Annihilation and Continuity

The odds of annihilation are far more probable than the odds of continuity, of going-on. If one took into account all of the things that could conceivably go wrong, that could kill you, right now, you’re very quickly presented with an almost incalculably vast range of possibilities.
