A Wrinkle In Time Is Full of Wisdom.

I wanted to share 7 of my favorite quotes that Muslims, and all other brothers and sisters of faith and awareness can relate to:

“God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.”

~Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time


“all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.

~ Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time


“We do not know what things look like, as you say,” the beast said. “We know what things are like. It must be a very limiting thing, this seeing.”

~Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time


We want them to see their home planet,” Mrs. Whatsit said.

The Medium lost the delighted smile she had worn till then. “Oh, why must you make me look at unpleasant things when there are so many delightful ones to see?”

Again Mrs. Which’s voice reverberated through the cave. “There will no longer be so many pleasant things to look at if responsible people do not do something about the unpleasant ones.”

~Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time


“She was silent; the great wings almost stopped moving; only a delicate stirring seemed to keep them aloft. “Listen, then,” Mrs. Whatsit said. The resonant voice rose and the words seemed to be all around them so that Meg felt that she could almost reach out and touch them:

“Sing unto the Lord a new song, and His praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that there is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof. Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift their voice; let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains. Let them give glory unto the Lord!”

~Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time


“matter and energy are the same thing, that size is an illusion, and that time is a material substance.”

~Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time


There are forces working in the world as never before in the history of mankind for standardization, for the regimentation of us all, or what I like to call making muffins of us, muffins all like every other muffin in the muffin tin. This is the limited universe, the drying, dissipating universe, that we can help our children avoid by providing them with “explosive material capable of stirring up fresh life endlessly.”

~Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time


“Who have our fighters been?” Calvin asked. “Oh, you must know them, dear,” Mrs Whatsit said. Mrs Who’s spectacles shone out at them triumphantly, “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” “Jesus!” Charles Wallace said. “Why, of course, Jesus!” “Of course!” Mrs Whatsit said. “Go on, Charles, love. There were others. All your great artists. They’ve been lights for us to see by.” “Leonardo da Vinci?” Calvin suggested tentatively. “And Michelangelo?” “And Shakespeare,” Charles Wallace called out, “and Bach! And Pasteur and Madame Curie and Einstein!” Now Calvin’s voice rang with confidence. “And Schweitzer and Gandhi and Buddha and Beethoven and Rembrandt and St. Francis!”

~Madeleine L’Engle, A Wrinkle in Time



All things of God start to shine brightly and stand out slightly, when you look with your heart and not just your eyes. The battle is real. The battle against darkness and light is within. That is the real “jihad” or battle we all face till the Last Days.




Star Wars and the Force: What Path Do You Choose?


[Iblees] said, “By your might, I will surely mislead them all


Except, among them, Your chosen servants.”


[ Allah ] said, “The truth [is My oath], and the truth I say –


[That] I will surely fill Hell with you and those of them that follow you all together.”


This is a dialogue that took place between God, the universal consciousness that created us, and the force of opposition- Iblis/Lucifer. He was once a servant of God that became a “satan”, the symbol of evil.  Because our minds work in relativity of discovering what is good, by knowing evil on earth, satan needed to exist. This force is not as strong as the force of Love and Creation that comes from God, but it is intertwined within the realities of these things.

We can choose to follow this path of untruth and evil, or we can become seekers in our life of a higher vibration that allows our life to live in flow with God’s Will. How does this relate to today?

Well, when we hear the news that seeks to alienate a group of people, start race wars, question our differences, we can choose to look beyond the news as truth. We can instead choose to see the news as a mirror to show the truth of the world right now and where we are consciously. I see the news on war and terror as glimpses into the lower consciousness realms of fear, anger, separation, greed, power, and control. I no longer look at it as being a reflection of the truth of human nature. We are more than this.

What people are going to have to start asking themselves is are they happy like this? Are you happy being so hateful towards Mexican immigrants? Are you happy being so fearful of American Muslims in your neighborhood? Are you happy as a person and at peace thinking African Americans or homosexuals threaten YOUR lively hood? Are you satisfied with your being to hate all Jews?

What makes you most happy? Is it to see your fellow beings smiling in joy? Is it to see two people of different cultures and colors hugging? Is it to see a hungry person get fed and have a bed to sleep in at night? Is it to see the goodness in God every day in life? Is it to see two nations getting along without war, bloodshed and death?

Lots of people act tough on the internet commenting about whole groups of people as if they had the life experience to know them all. They throw hate terms and slangs around and it has has gotten to a point where there is so much that when you report it, nothing happens. Probably these days there are too many reported posts and comments that insult, threaten, and spread hate towards a specific group of people. I can’t believe there are actual “jobs” that these people have to be paid to do this.

I advocate for you to decide how do you want use the “force”. Star Wars was the most popular movie and fastest one to hit 1 billion dollars in a few weeks. It is because people like to see the light and dark fight it out. And in the Star Wars series we learn that darkness is never as strong as the light. People love this truth expressed visually for them to see. So ask yourself, what side do you personally want to be on.

If you are happy following the dark side of human nature and Iblis/Satan into the realm of anger, hate, fear, and isolation-then let that be your path. I can not stop you and it’s your choice. Some people really like darkness. But if you are someone who is reaching for a reason to live and to believe in the goodness of mankind, and God, then choose the light side. It is the side that gives you a purpose and something to look forward to when each battle is won in the world every time a good deed is recognized. Cause no matter how evil or dark, the dark side may seem, it is never as strong as the light.

The light side IS Creation. The darkside can only destroy but never create life. So the dark only exists as a “byproduct” of the light. The truth is the light can exist on its own and it does in the God form, but darkness never can exist on its own. Even Satan was created as a being with free will choice that rebelled against God, but even he/it knows eventually it will be called back to God as all things in the End of this creation when a new one will begin again.

So do you want to stand on your own as a soul connected to the ALL, or just be an antagonist of goodness? It’s your choice.

Don’t take the easy way out. Educate yourself on the truth of the world. Go out and meet people different from you that the news talks about. Try to find the source for your anger or hurt, and don’t let it control your destination. Reach for something more that YOU deserve. You deserve to be happy and exist in a blissful state here and in death.
