One from one of my favourite poets – may God rest her soul

Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words, and never stops at all… – Emily Dickinson   I would add, I would call this the voice of God, ar- Raqeeb, The Watchful One* * Ar- Raqeeb mentioned in the Quran – Now, verily, it is We who have created man,and we know what his innermost self whispers within him: for We are closer to him than his neck-vein. And so, whenever the two demands of his nature come face to face, contending from the right and from the left, not even a word can he utter but there is a watcher with him, ever present. -Quran, Surah Qaf 50:16-18, Interpretation by Muhammed Asad And so, as Imam Ghazali and others have said, despair is not the condition of the believer.   *** Joymanifest
