Raja yang dibunuh kerana kebaikannya.

All night, a man called “Allah”
Until his lips were bleeding.
Then the Devil said, “Hey! Mr Gullible!
How comes you’ve been calling all night
And never once heard Allah say, “Here, I am”?
You call out so earnestly and, in reply, what?
I’ll tell you what. Nothing!”

The man suddenly felt empty and abandoned.
Depressed, he threw himself on the ground
And fell into a deep sleep.
In a dream, he met Abraham, who asked,
“Why are you regretting praising Allah?”

The man said, “ I called and called
But Allah never replied, “Here I am.”
Abraham explained, “Allah has said,
“Your calling my name is My reply.
Your longing for Me is My message to you.
All your attempts to reach Me
Are in reality My attempts to reach you.
Your fear and love are a noose to catch Me.
In the silence surrounding every call of “Allah”
Waits a thousand replies of “Here I am.”

KEPADA GADIS YANG MENUNGGU…. ..Kelak akan datang seorang lelaki, entah siapa, menemui Ayahmu. Dan berkata “Izinkan aku menjadi Imam anakmu di sejadah rindu”...Kelak akan datang seorang lelaki, entah siapa, menemui Ibumu. Dan berkata “Izinkan anakmu menjadi Ibu untuk anak-anakku”

Dengan izinNya,Suatu hari nanti.
