Knowing The Wind of Destiny
Allah is the Light of the heavens and the earth. The metaphor of His Light
is that of a niche
in which there is a lamp,
the lamp inside a glass,
the glass like a brilliant star,
lit from a blessed tree, an olive,
neither of the east nor of the west,
its oil all but giving off light
even if no fire touches it.
Light upon Light.
Allah guides to His Light whoever He wills
and Allah makes metaphors for mankind
and Allah has knowledge of all things.
