car full of sufis

what happens when
you travel in a car full of sufis?

the audible silence
of remembrance,
sound of prayer beads
................. clicking.

happy sufis,
happy hearts.

car and the freeway,
they seek each other and find.
inside there's 'free-way'
of another kind.

the divine breeze
has its own aerodynamics,
inside all of us
special vortex it creates,
where the ecstatic qalb*
turns and turns.

September 24, 2008 on way to Sufi Center @ Napa Valley, Sacramento from Los Angeles

* a Quranic term, 'qalb' (plural quloob) indicates heart and it literally also means 'that which turns'. From medical study its also known that with every beat of heart, there is a torque which repeatedly make the heart turn tirelessly around the center as it works.

"And whoever believes in Allah, He guides his or her qalb (heart). And in everything Allah is 'Aleem (All-Knowing)." - The Quran 64:11

"These are they into whose quloob (hearts) He has impressed Iman (faith) and strengthened them with a Rooh (Spirit) from Him." - 58:22

"Indeed there is a piece of flesh, which if it is sound, then the whole body is sound, and if it is corrupt then the whole body is corrupt. Indeed it is the qalb (Heart)."

"There is a polish for everything that takes away rust; and the polish for the heart is the Dhikru-Allah (Remembrance of Allah)". - saying of the holy prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace
