Of men and saints

Of men and saints some are like the sun
they clear the horizon and make everything lucid

you approach them with minds filled with nothingness
and they fill you with Him and His path

so strange is their aura
stranger yet are their words

you see them and then Him
suddenly He is so palpably close, as if closer than the jugular vein
and even closer

we sat at the feet of such a man
just a few days ago, who took us miles ahead of ourselves
and even beyond
to Him

may Allah SWT preserve him and all his people
