    How I wish to see you in peace For you to feel the tranquility of the motion as the water of the ocean hits your feet These tired eyes long to get a glimpse of you then quickly fall asleep And dream of you in a better place a better you a better me Tired of the way things have to be Why now in this place why you and me We have a purpose we have a need How I wish to see you free "The Holy" Free from the memories of previous years Where once God walked with us in peace And gave us the duty to maintain the garden in peace with perfect harmony

    But the devil has fooled us What is the point of a sacrifice to God  In the holy land if we act like able and Cain Killing your brother and killing one another Where's the peace and glory in that? Perhaps the troubles we see at your holy site Are the macro problems we see in the world in a small scale Give me something to eat when I hunger Quench my thirst in a parched land Give me justice, the lovely eyes of my family not in tears because of oppression and scent of my jasmine in my wife's body not her long labored sweat. It used to be we fasted from water and drink  Let's us now fast from injustice lies and deceit Oppression suppression and hate That is the dream I foresee in Isreal/Palestine One tribe one nation restoring the garden pulling out all the weeds plowing the land and seeing sunflowers bloom to match the sunand the high status we have taken our land. Turn these thick tears into cheers and let us feats again at the table to bring our hearts together. Amen

    Spiritual Conditions

    Spirtual_Conditions.jpg

    During this beautiful month of Rabi-Ul-Awwal and the end on the Gregorian calendar. We wanted to come together as community and get our priority right. Join us to understand as individual the conditions we are in and the conditions we seeks to introspect.
    This will be a discussion of Ibn 'Ata'Allah Al-Iskandari's four possible spiritual states a seeker may find themselves in, and how to be with them. Discussion of how to patiently endure the trials we have been given.

    Said bin Yunus strives to be a humble servant of God through his community teachings and work as a faculty member at the Napa Mosque. He was designated by the late Shaykh Muhammad Said Al-Jamal ar-Rifa’i ash-Shaddhuli (former judge and imam of masjid Al-Aqsa in Jerusalam) as Imam of the Shaddhuli Mosque Pope Valley, California. As an American convert, he has a foot in two worlds, one western and one Islamic, and his 15+ years of study and experience help to create bridges of understanding. Said has a unique ability for preaching the spiritual essence of Islam by emphasizing the central message of peace, justice, mercy, love, and freedom. His greatest passion is sharing the wisdom, beauty, strength, and love that emanate from this way. Said strives to open a deeper understanding (fiqh) of the practices of the way, empowering each individual as they walk their own path to Divine Light, Love and Mercy.

    Stories of The Prophets

    Screen_Shot_2018-07-20_at_1.13.11_PM.png

    The Qiṣaṣ al-'Anbiyā' (Arabic: قصص الأنبياء‎) or Stories of the Prophets is any of various collections of stories of the Noble Prophets. Because the lives of biblical figures — the Muslim prophets or أنبياء 'anbiya' — were covered only briefly in the Qur'an, scholars, poets, historians, and storytellers felt free to elaborate, clothing the bare bones with flesh and blood. Unlike Qur'an commentaries, however, which follow the order and structure of the Qur'an itself, the Qiṣaṣ told its stories of the prophets in chronological order – which makes them similar to the Jewish and Christian versions of the Bible.

    The Qiṣaṣ thus usually begins with the creation of the world and its various creatures including angels, and culminating in God's masterpiece, Adam, created by His own hand and given life from His own breath. Following the stories of the Prophet Adam and his family come the tales of Idris, Nuh, Shem, Hud, Salih, Ibrahim, Isaac,Ismail and his mother Hajar, Lut, Ishaq, Jacob and Esau, Yousuf, Shuaib, Musa and his brother Aaron, Khidr, Joshua, Josephus, Eleazar, Elijah, Samuel, Saul, Dawud, Sulaiman, Yunus, Dhul-Kifl and Dhul-Qarnayn all the way up to and including Yahya(John) and Isa(Jesus) son of Mariam.

    Stories of the Prophet was written by Sidi Muahmmed AL-Jamal the chief custodian and Imam of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem. Sometimes the author incorporated related local folklore or oral traditions, and many of the Qiṣaṣ al-'Anbiyā''s tales echo medieval Christian and Jewish stories.
