Saad Al-Ghamdi Recites Ayat Al-Kursi

Qari Abdul-Basit Recites The Quran

The Rememberer by Shaharazed

Open palms raised up, lips open

to magnify His Majesty;

A most beautiful Opening is sought,

with the Seven Gems.

Maintaining stillness of mind,

the heart rapturously lights

the avenues to the spirit by

engagement with the Divine.

A heavenly vacuum seals off all

distractions, otherwordly

tranquility descends upon the room

and enters the heart.

An Opening was sought, a gift

was bestowed, and words

can not deciper this moment.

Sami: I thought you’d have something to say about it. You are always getting on my case whenever I slip up.

Angel Ramadan: Math is a very important my brother. Make sure you study very hard. The prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) once said to do your best in everything that you do. Read more…
