Meeting God: a few stray thoughts...

Peace, one and all...
Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim...
'My God, though the sins of Your servant are ugly, Your pardon is beautiful'; indeed, how could it not be otherwise, when You are nur al-samawati wa al-ard and when You guide to Your Light whom You will. You encompass me utterly; I am undone before You. Aalim al-Ghaybi wa al-shahadati wa huwa al-Rahman al-Rahim. My heart lies bare and I have neither escape, nor excuse. I am shattered before You. 'Would that I were dust'! 'A thing forgotten'! And yet, me being me, I hope for Your mercy. Ya Rabbi!
Astaghfiruka wa atubu ilaik. Innaka anta al-Tawwab al-Rahim...
Abdur Rahman
('Servant of the Most Merciful')
