The Spiritual Link: Abraham's Sacred Journey from the Holy Green West Bank of Jordan to The Holy Desert and the Peaceful Plantless Valley of Makkah


The Spiritual Link
Abraham's Sacred Journey from the Holy Green West Bank of Jordan to
The Holy Desert & The Peaceful Plantless Valley of Makkah

TO Humanity


Why didst thou wise Abraham,
The grandfather of most prophets,
Leave thy beautiful beloved wife
Sara,
And left with thy second wife
Hagar,
And thy first son- Ishmael?
Where to and Why? !
Certainly not to heal her wounds
From being taken in enthral,
And being turned from a princess
Into a slave,
Why should st thou go
Through such a fearful journey,
And what for?
What was thy motto
And thy target then,
What was thy assumed end?
What didst thou want to
Teach us and could we
Comprehend?
What was beside obeying the Holy
Command? !
Ah, thou wanted to construct,
Not to deconstruct;
To build not to destroy,
Thou and thy young boy
Ishmael built the Kabah,
There it is: The PROTECTED HOUSE of Allah,
But why didst God want to be
Worshipped there?
Why didst He order a mosque to be build
Under The Glazing sun,
In the Dry Valley;
Where phantoms were every where,
What was intended to take place
In the Proud rocky mountains,
In such a Haughty weather up there?
Makkah, please tell me:
What didst attract Abraham to thee,
What brought him to a desert
Without water; without a river?
Ah, he had to accomplish the ordeal;
Uniting his off springs;
All men;
Muslim, Christian and Jews,
What an ordeal;
To make them love each other,
Respect each other,
Care for each other;
Not kill one another;
Or abuse others,
But men did not listen,
Nations were erased to take their lands,
Two world Wars were among peoples of the same religion,
Christian killed each other, Muslim fought each other, Hitler killed Jews,
Jews were not happy with each other,
In the Crusade Muslims and Arab Christians were killed in dozens,
In Spain Christians tortured each other;
They killed Muslims and Jews under no logic
Civil wars were every where:
In America, Vietnam, China, Curia,
Bosnia, Lebanon, Sudan and Russia,
Men's models were Joseph's brothers' plot
And Cain's Crime in killing
His brother,
They persisted not to listen
They were faithful to commit
The same mistake;
Not to follow the sacrificial attitude
Of our wise GRAND parent:
The grandfather of MOST MEN
And nearly ALL PROPHETS.
