The Right Way

Author: Aishah

Islam is the right way, the truth,
Presented to mankind, to adults and the youth.
A beautiful religion, the only way to success.
Follow the religion and for eternity you’ll be blessed.

However, today Islam has been portrayed as something else,
Something horrible, something bad, but this is all false.
Don’t listen to the news what they say about Islam is wrong.
Read the books of Islam and all the falsehood will be gone.

Muhammad (SAW) is the last promised Prophet.
However, qadiyanis think that Mirza Gulam Ahmad was it.
They’re wrong you see, they think he’s the Messiah and more.
True Islam do they not taste, do they not adore.

Nabi (SAW) prophesised that 73 sects will evolve
And today we see many, Islam’s new puzzle we can’t solve.
Why Shias? Why Brelvis? Why Ahmediyyas?
Follow the Qur’an and Sunnah and the Sahabas!

To make this easy, Allah Ta’ala blessed us with Imam Bukhari,
Imam Muslim, Imam Abu Dawood and Imam Tirmidhi.
The list doesn’t stop coz there’s Imam Malik, Imam Nasa’ee,
Imam Ahmad, Abu Hanifah and Shafi’ee.

Many more scholars have passed,
Who came to remove falsehood from the Ummah’s hearts.
The 4 schools of thought they then formed
With their piety and righteousness we were forewarned
To stay away from the misguided, ‘cause we’ll not reach Jannah
The 4 schools are really the words of the Qur’an and Sunnah.
None of their fataawas were of their own opinion
But with daleels and a lot of work, the answers were brought forth

So my brothers, my sisters, listen to this once
Follow Haq (truth) and insha’Allah you will not bounce
From hell to heaven, but you’ll go flying to Jannah
So do dhikr daily, always remember Allah
Keep on the straight path, do not hesitate
To talk to Allah, ‘cause mercy awaits at His gates
Let your tears flow, it’s a sign of forgiveness
Follow the right path and insha’Allah you will truly attain success.

Have courage

When things go wrong as they sometimes will
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill

When the funds are low, and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but have to sigh

When care is pressing you down a bit
Rest if you must, but do not quit.

Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt

And you can never tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems so far

So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things go wrong that you must not quit.

Allah tests those whom He loves

Whispers Of Shaytaan

Stay in your bed, don’t make a fuss.
Your prayers can wait; give in to your nafs. (1)

What! Go to the mosque, the path you’ll pave?
Don’t bother, think of the gas you’ll save.

Why go the extra miles to be kind?
Don’t share that smile, they won’t mind!

Listen to your parents, why should you?
You’re big enough, don’t let them tell you what to do!

Don’t look at those orphans, what could they need?
You have your own problems, and family to feed.

Wear good Hijab? Oh me, Oh my, you’ll be targeted as a Muslim and put to shame.
Just wear no makeup, and dress simple and plain.

Go for Jihad? No not you.
It’s not your problem, what can you do?

Don’t worry about Jannah, your place is reserved.
I promise you’ll get all you deserve.

Preach about Islam, and be nice?
Listen to me, and take my advice!!!

Don’t fast during Ramadan, you’ll feel dead.
Don’t go for Hajj, the heat you’ll dread.

Why give charity, or feed the poor?
Don’t do it I say, They’ll just ask for more.

Don’t visit the Muslims, they’ll bite your back.
Don’t stop your work for prayer, it’s money you lack.

Then he makes you hoard your wealth.
He thinks while he talks, and laughs to himself.

You take me as your friend, and don’t give me a fight.
I’ll take you to hell to gain respite.

On the judgement day we will meet.
Allah’s plan we can not defeat.

Shaytaan thinks and thinks of more to say.
Say A’ oodhoo billah and make him run away.

Dear believer, don’t let shaytaan put you to the test.
You can overcome him, just do your best.

(1) Nafs: Arabic word meaning self. (yourself)

The Woman

The Woman I admire
wearing her attire
hiding her figure,
thus, curbing my desire..

The Woman I desire
fearing the (hell) Fire
is diligent in her prayers
for the rewards of life hereafter...

The Woman I encounter
is beyond bother
with the keen race
to beautify the face!

The Woman I ask
from dawn to dusk
is busy with ALLAH
murmuring, subhan'allah, subhan'allah, subhana'allah

The Woman I observe
certainly deserves
better respect
than what she expects

The Woman I listen
is very, very stern
for her it is a must
to control one's lust

But the Women I see
sad to say, most wear "minis"
alone I lament... "VIAGRA on heels"?
though they are not made for this!

The Woman I met
boasting her beauty
most probably by surgery?
but does she know it is all temporary?

Hence, the Woman
I know is advised to follow
the sunnah of our beloved Rasulullah
from head to toe....

The Woman I judge
often bears a grudge
EQUALITY, she requests (or rather protests)
but please bear in mind ALLAH'S inquest!

The Women I hurt (by this article)
please do not curse or smut
for it is better I warned before all is gone....
