Sparrow on the Prophet's Tomb / Poems By Daniel Abdal-Hayy Moore
eBook (PDF): $4.00
Of the three books collected here, the first is celebratory of Islam’s eschatology (next-world doctrine), the second an homage to the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him,... More > and the third written on an ‘Umra in 1995/96 to Mecca and Medina… These are all poems of my root work, going down into the loam of study, practice and fidelity to the ideas and often the terminology of Islamic and Sufic thought, while my poetic development since these book incorporates more imaginally leaping imagery and unhesitantly associational language, to more openly circumscribe both the tone and experience of a modern American but cosmopolitan Muslim/Sufi in our very promising but rambunctiously tumultuous times.< Less

We’re born in a relationship with theology. Nurtured in the womb by other than our means, born into the world at large, at very large, from our meditative seclusion, our khalwa, the Arabic for... More > spiritual retreat (often practiced in a closet-like room just enough for a devotee to sit comfortably) we emerge into a theological world, willy-nilly. As soon as we take a breath of worldly oxygen we’re in a tight relationship with the whole God-system, as believers or non-believers, until our last breath leaves us. So in the title, it’s a Throne that is perpendicular, at an always angle, to all that is in our and all worlds, while still being “seated” (only “as it were”) within it, and Allah “seated” upon it. And this is our present and ever-present reality, in all its manifestations. It’s a way of seeing and a way of being, and everyone down to the minutest mouse, is in “theological” relation to it. Oh, that feather floating through the air, and that ant at the water drain! Yes, you there... you too!< Less

“White noise” is “a random signal with a constant power spectral density,” says Google. “Such a signal is heard as a hissing sound, resembling the ‘sh’ sound... More > in ‘ash’. In music and acoustics, the term ‘white noise’ may be used for any signal that has a similar hissing sound.” After chemo and radiation my oncologist asked if I heard a hissing sound in my ears. I said no, having always thought of it as the Music of the Spheres. It’s the background silence that is pure, whose purity is expressed as a “hissing sound.” Not of snakes, but of bliss. Or the whoosh of the sacred perveyors of bliss. And in the Unseen Next World that’s an inconceivable state, herein called “silvery.” TAKE ONE STEP FORWARD / it all turns to light // But to pour from one bottle to another / step back // At just the right balance / it pours itself...< Less

As Muslims who pray the five obligatory prayers each day of our lives, when able we orient ourselves toward Mecca, located in what is now Saudi Arabia, from wherever we happen to find ourselves,... More > farflung in some island fastness, or out in desert dunes, or in a New York hotel room. There are boat people who tie up and face Mecca right in their boats, saintly Moroccan merchants who fling their carpets down just behind the counter where they sell embroidery thread to very particular customers (I am a witness). We can’t get too “far out” when we stop to face Mecca five times and more a day, or in the solitude of our nights, knowing the plumb line goes straight through to the next world, and its rising to the holy heights.< Less
