Sallam alaykum.

Poem To A Scholar

Wherever there is sun
there are flowers

Wherever there are trees
there are birds

Wherever there is love
there are lovers

Wherever there is laughter
there is happiness

Wherever there is darkness
there is light

Wherever there is prayer
there is consciousness

Wherever there is dhikr
there are Angels

Wherever there is mercy
there is Allah

Wherever there is water
there is life

And wherever you are
there are students

    Jazaik Allah Khair

  5. Ah, Adnan, this is a wonderful poem, with its uncanny spiritual rationale, leading to the natural joining of student and teacher, teacher and student, sun and the earth its rays land on, and on and on… Blessings and thank you.

  6. Adnan says:

    @ asqfish: Jazak’Allah khayr. I hope you are well insha’Allah.

    @ Daniel: πŸ™‚ thank you for your kind words. One thing that has affected me is that whenever I have attended a traditional Islamic class, the relationship between a student and teacher is always stressed. The link between them both which leads to the teacher of teachers, the Prophet (peace and blessings upon him). However, in classes of secular education there seems to be no link. No relationship. No attachment to the teacher and his teachers, and his teachers, and so forth.

    The man I speak of in this poem has affected me so much. Given me so much.
    I decided not to include his name, firstly out of modesty, but secondly, so that the reader could take something away from the poem about his or her teachers.
    It could be a poem about all teachers πŸ™‚
