The Night of Power - Laylat al-Qadr

The Night of Power, Laylat al-Qadr, is coming upon us like a meteor. This is the night to remain vigilant. On the night of Laylat al-Qadr we must remain in prayer. This is the night that our fate for the next year will be decided.

But our prayers cannot be just for ourselves, for every fiend prays for himself. They must also include those we love, for everyone human prays for those they love. Our prayers must also be for those we are acquainted with. And for those we have never met - all humans.

But we must go beyond our own species. We must love all creatures. And we must love all plants and all minerals. We must love the entire planet. Laylat al-Qadr, the night the angels hand our fate to us, is the night we send prayers up on behalf of all of creation.

Meditation for Laylat al-Qadr

*Begin by counting down from 13 to 1
*Slow your breathing to 4 breaths per minute
*Repeat Ar-Rahman (in breath) Ar-Rahim (out breath)
*In your mind's eye
- See yourself lying in a cave
- Feel the cold, damp, dark cave under your skin
- Before you suddenly appears the Arch-angel Gabriel
- You see a Book - the script within the book is on fire
- Take the Book and place it on your heart
- Feel the warmth from the Book and its fire script


*Bring your attention to your heart
*Call up feelings of thankfulness
- Remember a time that made you very happy
*Hold that feeling of thankfulness
- those you love - give them the thankfulness and love
- See a giant mass of humans - give them the thankfulness and love
- See animals and plants - give them the gift of thankfulness and love
- See the earth from space - give it thankfulness and love

Before you stands the angels bringing you your fate.

Surrender before your fate

Thank the angels for the dispensation of Allah that they bring to you

Be grateful

Count back from 1 to 13

When you open your eyes praise Allah

Mira Awad --- Bahlawan (Acrobat)

I'm hanging between earth and sky, and a crazy wind
Step by step, I'm still keeping my balance
Whatever might happen,
Any little mistake,
I might fly.
I was always like this
Always to the extreme,
On the edge,
And you were always afraid for me
Maybe afraid that everyone will know
That there is no security,
No safety net,
I'm an Acrobat.

Mira Awad - Wihdati

My loneliness is a sad city,
I roam it's streets, I count it's pavements.
And when night falls, angry horses come running through it, startled by lightning.

My loneliness is a land, filled with blooming trees,
But when the fruits ripen, they fall and decay,
For there is no-one to gather them, no-one to care.

My loneliness is a longing,
Crying out for something beyond the senses,
And outside the skin.Share/Bookmark
