when heaven sanctions…

veiled by light’s rays
a weave of selected surahs*
protecting her henna
meticulously applied by houris
overcome by modesty
bridal verses recited
as the groom awaits
his heavenly match

a marriage so unique ~ we identify light as revealing, but in this rare bond God’s noor (light) acts as a veil

*surah – a chapter of the Quran
