Tonight is the Muslim holiday of Lailat al-Qatr, commemorating the revelation of the Qu’ran to the Prophet Mohammad.
Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes.
If it were always a fist or always stretched open,
you would be paralyzed.
Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding,
the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds’ wings.
Toward the One,
The perfection of Love, Harmony and Beauty,
The Only Being,
United with all the Illuminated Souls Who form the embodiment of the Master,
The Spirit of Guidance.
(Invocation by Hazrat Inayat Khan)
