No Distance of Love
Before we share a poem about no distance of love, let’s we talk about love itself. Talking about love is actually mystery. It is one of life’s most enduring mysteries. A question that music, poetry, myth and legend has, for thousands of years, tried but failed to answer. And below is our . . . .
poem entitled “No Distance of Love”.
No Distance of Love
There are many miles between us,
High sturdy wall blocks up us,
However, our hearts have no distance.
As drawing our love even closer,
On this my heart, it is insistent.
As it’s growing to be bigger,
When we talk, my heart sings,
You will never know the happiness it brings.
Just want to hear a word blows from you,
Keeps my heart from being blue.
I love you truly, yes I do.
I forever want to be with you.
For now, I’ll settle for the phone,
However, know it’s in your dreams that I belong
Longing for the day we greet,
Two loving hearts will then get to meet.
Never more to be apart,
Knowing it was long distance we got our start.
After reading the poem entitled “No Distance of Love” above, this gives evidence that love is mystery. Everyone has their own imagine about love. However, Allah through our Prophet Muhammad, SAW has guided us how to love.
“O you believe … Allah has made you love the Faith, and made it so beautiful in your hearts, and has made you hate disbelief, immorality and rebelliousness. These are the righteous. This is grace and bounty, from Allah, as Allah is All-knowledgeable and All-Wise” (Q.S Al-Hujurat :6-8)
“Say [O Muhammad]: If you love Allah, then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your faults, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. Say: Obey Allah and the Apostle; but if they turn back, then surely Allah does not love the unbelievers.” (Q.S. ‘Ali ‘Imran : 31 – 32)
“When a man asked the prophet, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, “O Messenger of Allah, when will the Day of Judgment be?”, the Prophet (SAW) replied, “What have you prepared for it?” he said, “I have not prepared for it a great deal of prayer, fasting nor charity, but I love Allah and His Messenger intensely,” the Prophet(SAW) said, “You will be with those whom you love.” (HR. Al-Bukhari)
After reading two verses from Quran and a hadits above, a big question in our mind is “Can we do something to show our love for Allah, SWT and Muhammad, SAW?
