T: Timeless – Alphabet of Friendship

I stand amazed at the nature of the love I behold for him,
Such that even the ability to love him, comes from him,
And the piety to hold onto him, is obtained by adherence to him.
How can I claim that I am a timeless lover of
His, when it is him who chose me to love him?How can I claim that I am towing the line of his path,
when he was the one who paved the way for me to follow his trail?How can I say that my heart aches for him,
when it is him with an unspoken concern of me behind his loving gaze,
tsunamis of truth encapsulated within each tear drop that falls for his believers…

I hold steadfast onto his rope,
For only through serving him, will I reach him.

Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq (Peace be upon him):
“Should I encounter him (Imam Mahdi (peace be upon him)), I would dedicate my entire life in service to him.”

Al-Ghaybah; Al-Nu’mani, Muhammad ibn Ibrahim, Volume 1, p. 245.
