Actions are distinguised, one from the other, with respect to their excellence in the Sight of Allah in accordance with the condition of the heart, not by their number or form, but rather due to the strength of the caller, his or her truthfulness, his or her sincerity and the extent to which he or she prefers Allah over himself or herself.

-Ibn al-Qayyim


Language of the Heart

I can know you from your writings
Essays or poetries
Straightforward or longwinded
Simple or complicated

But we are not only papers or pens
Blogs or instagrams
Tumblrs or twitters
Ones or zeros

I understand you with the language of the heart
Unwritten and unheard of
Silent but loud
Subtle yet obvious

The way your cheeks flustered
The watery eyes that you tried to hide
The jumpy shadows following you
And even from your silent stares

Language of the heart
Is the language I understand you with
