Feelings

If i were to mock your mum or dad
You would break inside all hurt and sad
If i had to ridicule your husband or wife
The decision would be made that i have no place in your life
If i insulted your beloved daughter or son
Your emotions would be stirred whilst i have fun
If i speak against those that are dear
Its waves of emotions that i will have to fear
Muhammad (SAW) is more dear to me than my own blood
When you insult my Prophet, you asking for emotions to flood
Its nothing extreme, it all makes sense
You hurt my feelings and i take offence
I dont justify killings or violence
But dont expect me to sit back in silence
If you dont agree with the man, at least lets live like brothers
I might not share your beliefs, but i will never mock others
So please my friend, i love you for you are my fellow being
Just don’t insult Muhammad (SAW), i believe he is the greatest this world has ever seen

My Husband

When the Storm came

He was my umbrella

He protected me from misery and pain

He moved every obstacle in my path

He always told me “it will be ok insha Allaah”

When I looked, he was always there

for me

he hardly left me

He spend his time with me

He seized my fears

He strengthened my will

He removed my doubts

He raised my security

His shoulder was mine



I could depend on him

He showed up out of nowhere...

And warmed my freezing heart

Freed my trapped mind

Never broke his promise to me

truthful

He made my life bright, effortless

He made me sleep with ease, whilst the world was collapsing on me

He would have protected me from bullets

He promised he will be there

until His Owner took him back

My umbrella from the storm

Ow Allah forgive him

have mercy on him

pardon him

accept his deeds

O Allah

Expand his grave

reward him for his goodness

He lit up my heart

Allaah give him a better home than the one he lit and left

Teenage Love

For 18 years she was the apple of my eyes
But I was in for a surprise
As she got to know a boy
A sudden change and she wasn’t coy

Ah! She said I don’t understand
She has to have a friend
She has grown
And I am about to be overthrown

Overthrown by a boy – her first love
I was sad not so much as she was in love*
Love is natural
But she is still my 'baby girl'

All I asked from her is to consider
- The danger as he is after all “a stranger”
Study comes first and when you are really ready
Go ahead find a friend - a steady

Study and Steady? - She replied she could juggle
But I am not willing to take that gamble
As I have known cases – love interrupts
Study, family and all love disrupts

For a teenager, being in love is everything
As a father it kept me thinking!
Am I doing the wrong thing?
Love I am not curbing

It is just the timing
Priority is the thing
All I think was for her own good
But sad to say she misunderstood

Yet again there’s another matter
It makes me shatter
In choosing a friend or life partner
Rasulullah (saw) has mentioned the manner**

In all, Religion is the foundation
Property, beauty, wealth are just for a short duration
Has she forgotten what she learnt?
Just for the sake of love – she’ll get burnt

A parent can do so much
A prayer and a hope to Allah, in this state as such
That our baby girl realizes her mistake
As her future is at stake.

Penned by Qalamuddin dated 10/5/2011
* There are three qualities whosoever has them will taste the sweetness of Iman: loving Allah and His Messenger above all else, loving someone solely for the sake of Allah, and hating to return to disbelief after Allah has rescued him from it, as much as he would hate being thrown into Hellfire." (Sahih Bukhari).
** The Prophet (s.a.w) said: "A woman may be married for four reasons: for her property, her status, her beauty, and her religion; so try to get one who is religious, may you be blessed."

Allah the Most Merciful

Is it really, is it so?
How can one really know?

Will the book of deeds be on the left or the right?
Will there be delight or fright?

One things for sure - Allah is Most Merciful
That is what we all can hope for.

Solace of Allah

My heart longs for the solace of Allah,
and my fingers grasp the Holy Qu'ran.
I bow to Him in my wonder
and hope my faith will never be gone.

My Heart Beats

My heart beats with excitement
At the pleasure of reciting Your Name
O Allah, wipe away all my sins
And fill my record with voluminous good deeds.

The Dunya

 And nobody said it was going to be easy,
 Who said it won't make you cry?
 Did somebody tell you that you wouldn't trip, slip or fall?
 Tell me, who made you think it isn't hard?

 That your heart wouldn't be broken?
 Mistreated?
 Abused?
 Tired?
 Used?

 Who told you it was going to be easy..?,
 That you weren't going to make mistakes?
 That you wouldn't fail?
 Why do you keep saying you don't need me?
 And I don't need you?

 Who told you, you have to be alone?
 That this burden, you have to carry on your own?
 Test after test?
 Trial after trial?
 No sign of the end?
 Is that what you’re waiting for?

 Who said you wouldn't grow old?
 That your health would always hold?
 What made you think that he was yours?
 And not a gift from Him?
 What made you think you were perfect?

 Well, who told you there couldn't be change?
 Why do you keep remembering your old ways?
 Didn't He show you the road to take?
 And reminded you about him who wants you to go astray?
 But He gave you tauba? An open way?
 Why don't you take it?

 Who told you it was going to be easy?
 Give me their name!
 Our worlds are so different.
 But yet we are the same.
 Didn’t they tell you, you're just a traveller?
 That you have to cross this bridge?
 That the other side is nothing like this my friend?
 It is eternal bliss.

 Didn’t they tell you about the drink that you'll sip? (inshaAllah)
 By the Prophet's (s) hands?
 That you'll be united with your loved ones, as happy as can be?
 That you can invite them to your tea party?
 Didn't they remind you, His Mercy overcomes His Wrath?
 That no one is more Generous than He?

 Didn't they describe to you the Gardens so green?
 Where you'll sit and rest so peacefully?
 Did they not tell you to think big and just try your best?
 To keep going even when things seems dark?
 Did they not guide you to make your intentions sincere?
 To be genuine and honest, and to trust in He.

 Did they not tell you, anything is possible?
 Dreams can come true?
 What you seek is what you will find?
 So think positively.
 Think good of He.

 Nobody said it’s going to be easy.
 But be patient my friend.
 Don’t look down, look ahead.
 And be for He...
