Carpe Diem #1379 Rise of Islam along the Silk Road (final episode February 2018; introductory episode March 2018)

[…] “As for the righteous, they will be in a secure place. Amidst gardens and springs. Dressed in silk and brocade, facing one another. So it is, and We will wed them to lovely companions. They will call therein for every kind of fruit, in peace and security. Therein they will not taste death, beyond the first death; and He will protect them from the torment of Hell. A favor from your Lord. That is the supreme salvation” […] (Source: Quran, English translation by Talal Itani)  (Surah 44: Ayah 51-57)

autumn storm
seed pods slits open
spilling its contents
spring rains refresh
moonflowers blossom


garden of peace
feeding each other fruit
adorned in flowers


Present Life

Carpe Diem #1380 present life

[…] “And cite for them the parable of the present life: it is like water that We send down from the sky; the plants of the earth absorb it; but then it becomes debris, scattered by the wind. God has absolute power over everything.  Wealth and children are the adornments of the present life. But the things that last, the virtuous deeds, are better with your Lord for reward, and better for hope.” […(Surah 18: Ayah 45 & 46)


sunflower blossoms
praising it’s maker for rain
giving food to the birds



life’s journey
walking with nature
doing good works
adornments of the present
pale to the Lord’s rewards
