Greetings to all who stumble across this. My name is Rasheed, and this is where any who are interested will be able to find my attempts at poetry (mainly haiku) and other forms of written expression. The subject matter is ultimately the religion to which I converted in the Winter of 2004 – although the metaphors may be obscure. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy your stay.

Also, to explain the title: it’s an inversion of “understanding.” By treating this word thus, my intention is to convey my wish to pursue and attain “understanding” while at the same time acknowledging that I continuously submit to figuratively “standing under” my Creator – this is, after all, Islam. Perhaps this insight into my goal of seeking with humility will give you a firmer grasp on what you experience here. In sha’ Allah.
