God

Is there a god?
What does he look like?
Is he that benign, long-bearded figure
artists have painted over the years.
Is he a Jew?

A dear friend now deceased, following
a long discourse on the subject said.
'God is god.' Thank you, Abu.


Abu Raschid wasn't a member of Al Caeda,
or a Muslim terrorist. He was a gentle man of
god, and my very dear friend. Allah akba.

    I don't think the God you desribe in your first stanza exists except as a work of imagination. But the spirit of God that you describe in your relationship with Abu Raschid is all that matters.

    Yes! There is a God! Omnipotent, Omniscient and Omnipresent!

    One does not have to follow a theistic spirituality to understand the wisdom you have quoted here from your good friend Abu. He obviously made an enormous impression on you - god or no god. love, Allie xxxx
