The Breath of Zekr

by Abdur Rahman

Peace, one and all…


Insha Allah, I want to add more guest poets in the coming weeks, as there’s so much great stuff around.  To that end, here’s an outstanding effort from our most worthy brother Irving Karchmar (aka Darvish), poet and author of Master of the Jinn.

This poem is called The Breath of Zekr.  You can find the original post here.  Sit back, relax and let the breath of zekr lift you towards heaven.

The Breath of Zekr

The breath of zekr inhales love

and exhales kindness

The heartbeat keeps time

to the rhythm of intention

Steady the breath with silence

and good works

Listen to the heart beat

La illa ha illa Allah!

O seeker, the traveler on this path

takes no provisions but love

(Irving Karchmar, 2006)

Ma’as salama,
Abdur Rahman
