Understanding My Lord’s Names and Attributes (Poem)

Understanding My Lord’s Names and Attributes (Poem)
By You, Ya Rabb, I open and close my eyes.

I am again reminding myself of Your Names and Attributes.
In resolution of a puissant inner dispute.
You understand the most, You are indeed aware and in control.
You are Al- Mu’id (المعيد) , all that You will, You can restore.

****************

All that I am is in Your Hands,
You are Al-Muhaymin (المهيمن), my forever Guardian.
There may be times I will find it hard to understand myself,
You are Al-Muqqadim (المقدم), You expedite, bringing me forward to and through what must be dealt.

***************

You are Al-Wahhab (الوهاب), The One Who Bestows,
So there shouldn’t be sadness nor sorrows.
As You pick me up and make me new,
You forgive me, You are Al-Afuw (العفو).

**************

You are Ar-Raqib (الرقيب), Ever Watchful,
You see when I am one of the doubtfuls.
Then the course diverts,
To You again I will revert.

************

Life is a constant movement indeed,
In this world, when all else fail, You are The Unfailing, You are Al-Wajid (الواجد).
By You, Ya Rabb, I open and close my eyes.
You are Al-Muhyiy (المحي), You are Al-Mumit (المميت), By You, I live and die.



About Umm Asiyah

I reverted to Islam in 2014. Alhamdulillah. It hasn't been the same since. And I had started to do poetry in relation to my Islamic journey.
