The Heart

The heart of all believers is one.


The Muslimah Speaks Poetry Anthology

Just as the direction of

All worshippers’ is one.

The heart of all believers is directed

Toward pleasing the Lord, the Almighty.

Let us then, put off the fire of complaints.

Let us forget what has gone past.

Let us ignore each other’s faults.

Let us forget “my arrogance” and

“Your negligence.”

Let us not mention what hurt us.

Let us see ourselves in …

The mirrors of our conscience.

And …

Come out of the confined rooms …

Of our egos …

And embrace
