Light of Yusef

The Light of Yusef

Yousef’s body thrown into a well

Zulaikha’s heart thrown into a bottomless well named Love

Yusef a Prophet

Zulaikha a plain mortal

Yusef was jailed

Zulaikha was blamed

His crime; innocence

Her crime; Love

“I fell in love with light

Through Yusef, I saw Habib and through Habib I saw Him

This light took over my being

My heart melted

My body reacted

Today they perceive me as a sinner

Tomorrow I shall be with the lovers

For I await the day where the promise to be with those we love shall be fulfilled.”
