umarali "The man said, “ I called and called,
But Allah never replied, “Here I am.”
Abraham explained, “Allah has said,
“Your calling my name is My reply.
Your longing for Me is My message to you.
All your attempts to reach Me
Are in reality My attempts to reach you.
Your fear and love are a noose to catch Me.
In the silence surrounding every call of “Allah”
Waits a thousand replies of “Here I am." - Mevlana Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī

umarali Istanbul
glorious capital
of those who worship
with the heart

Istanbul
crown, sabre and throne
Blessed Mantle, minaret and stone
Empire, faith, blood and bone

Istanbul
green flags hoisted, fluttering
night callers, summoning
600 years, illuminating
faces, shimmering
mighty spiritual dynasty
conquering

Istanbul
light surges in your veins
blessed by legions of saints
buried, yet, by Allah,
alive in their graves

Istanbul
beneath the façade of a modern state
a lion’s heart pounding
makes the ground to quake
how long till the souls awake?

Istanbul
you are gorgeous, mubarak
and we long to be with you
