Prayer for Sunday (Laylatul Bara’ah)

The Islamic holy observance of Laylatul Bara’ah begins at sundown.

The world is three days:
As for yesterday, it has vanished, along with all that was in it.
As for tomorrow, you may never see it.
As for today, it is yours, so work in it.
~ Imam Hassan al-Basri

The beauty of the heart
is the lasting beauty:
its lips give to drink
of the water of life.
Truly it is the water,
that which pours,
and the one who drinks.
All three become one when
your talisman is shattered.
That oneness you can’t know
by reasoning.

(Jalaluddin Rumi)
