Rumi and The Night of Power-Ramadan
Mawlana Rumi on The Night of Power – Ramadan
just like the Night of Power,
is hidden amidst the other nights
So that the soul
will go on seeking every night.
Oh young one,
not every night is the Night of Power
not every night
is bereft of the Night of Power
Here is the grace of God.
hidden in plain sight.
We find God.
whenever we seek.
God says through Muhammad:
It is the seeking
that makes every night
Night of Power.
We stand knee deep in the ocean
lips on the waves
Dying of thirst.
