POEM: On Isolation During Times Of Fitna

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Dear Allah the Almighty One, the All-Knowing King,
Recently my Iman has been low and decreasing
Each time I mingle with the faithless and deceiving,
Who indulge in fruitless talks, lying and gossiping,
Whilst the state of the Ummah seems so discouraging.

Thus I’ve decided, after reading some Ahadeeth,
To befriend solitude and avoid vile company.
Once I recognize actors acting suspiciously,
Through their gestures and bad vibes they give unknowingly,
I grant them my distance so they won’t know the real me.

I’ve embraced seclusion for Your Sake Allah Alone.
Allah is always with me I’m delighted to know.
The Noble Qur’an I’d rather read than be with those
Whose aimless companionship cause my faith to go low.
Please forgive me, Allah, when I leave them on their own.

Until I find pious companions whom I can trust,
I busy myself with lots of Dhikr and Du’as,
Contemplating on meanings of vivid dreams I have,
And regularly making du’a for the Ummah,
Praying my patience is one way to Jannah above.

Dear Allah guide me away from where I should not be,
Places wherein wrong crowds only make my faith decrease.
Provide guidance O’ Allah and Jannah please decree,
Lead me to Paradise for my belief and good deeds,
And for striving to make the right decisions. Ameen.

POEM: On Homosexuality & Same-Sex Attraction

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Some notes on homosexuality – a sin,
A major sin and evil deed forbidden.
It distorts the nature of human beings.
As a sinful desire, it is disgusting,
Among wrongdoings like deceit and stealing.

Same-sex attraction is what Lut’s people did,
Rebelling and doing the prohibited -
They disobeyed God as they were conceited.
So stubborn, they chose to remain misguided,
Ignoring their innocence since they were kids.

Allah the Almighty made Eve for Adam.
Allah made woman for man as companion.
God’s enemy shaytan, foe of all humans,
Wants chaos through messing with God’s creation,
Trying to misguide them into vile thinking.

Accursed shaytan loves it when humans lessen
In logic, good morals and population -
When moms don’t give birth but become lesbians,
When lions from men act and look feminine,
While others change bodies from discontentment. 

To worship One God is nature of mankind,
To obey Allah’s Laws and do what is right.
The opposite gender man was meant to like.
Same-sex attraction, an abnormal desire,
Can be controlled with faith and knowledge acquired.

One can’t be born with homosexuality,
As babies come to earth completely sin-free.
This may develop in some unknowingly
As when boys are not stopped when they act girly,
Or when girls get too close unnaturally.

Attraction may happen when love gets extreme.
So when you like some do so moderately.
Loving for Allah is a Muslim’s duty,
Guiding and reminding with sincerity.
That same genders can marry we disagree.

POEM: Reviving Some Sunnahs Of The Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Some Sunnahs of the Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam to revive:
Two Rak’ahs Sunnah upon entering the Masjid,
Showing respect to elders, being playful with kids,
Helping around the house, being loving to one’s wives,
Staying truthful and when joking never telling lies,

Fasting regularly every Monday and Thursday,
Brushing and cleansing one’s teeth before one starts to pray,
Exchanging salaams and handshakes when meeting others,
Starting most actions from the right and in odd number,
Meeting loved ones almost always with a cheerful face,

Praying often Tahajjud at night when most would sleep,
Not complaining about food he did not want to eat,
Brisk and dynamic was his usual way of walking,
Articulate, wise, eloquent, clear and well-spoken,
Courage and softness he could balance beautifully,

He took proper care of his inner and outward self,
In what is right whenever he could he’d strive to help,
At times to energize he would take afternoon naps,
Knew when to work ambitiously and when to relax,
In lots of Dhikr and Du’as he loved to indulge,

Da’wah was his mission – enjoin right and forbid wrong,
As a leader and teacher he was brave, smart and strong.
May Allah the Almighty accept all our good deeds,
Allow us in Jannah and Kawthar River. Ameen.
Stick to the Prophet’s Sunnah to join those who have won.

POEM: Wear The Right Hijab For Allah's Sake

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


The Hijab for Allah’s sake is to cover,
Conceal one’s adornments that should be treasured.
A woman’s gems must be reserved for her spouse,
Not meant to tempt strangers, distract nor arouse.

Wear the Hijab to obey Allah the King,
To be distinguished from the disobedient,
As Muslimahs on the Right Way to be seen,
Known as followers of the true religion.

Muslimahs are free, not enslaved by fashion.
What clothes to wear is not a daily problem.
Be liked for who you are, not for your clothing.
Born to worship God, not serve His creation.

The best Hijab is the one which covers most,
Wear what conceals beauty, not attractive clothes.
The more self-respect a woman truly has,
The more she’ll try to properly cover up.

If you’re proud of something and you should flaunt it,
Show the fact you’re Muslim, chaste and obedient.
Recall how you’re here to please Allah Only,
Long for Allah’s Love through faith and modesty.

May Allah Almighty make us among His righteous friends whom He will welcome in Jannatul Firdaus near Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen.

POEM: Regarding Those Who Are Incompatible

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Recall your purpose in life, to please Allah,
To see our God, the Creator, in Jannah.
Because not all creation have the same goal,
With each one it makes sense you can’t get along.

So forget about those who rejected you,
Who betrayed and proved their friendship is not true.
No more stalking from now on those you don’t know,
Strangers who prefer to be by you unknown.

Haters are but critics who differ from us,
Too different from us, or just envious.
Your friends, even if few, are those who agree
To stand by you and join you in your journey.

If you’re sincere and aim to please Only God,
You won’t get on with clowns who live to show off.
If your self-esteem is high and ego low,
You’ll intimidate those who feel they’re below.

The truthful can’t get on with those who love lies.
The wise repel those who dislike real advice.
Beautiful souls scare those with evil inside.
Tough warriors are too strong for those who can’t fight.

Seldom would you see lions befriending snakes.
Never take offence when you’re ignored by fakes.
Move on to achieve your goals for Allah’s sake,
Even if you’re on your own towards God’s Way.

Around the world there are those who side with you,
Who do a lot of the good things that you do.
Unmet friends you may meet in Jannah someday.
Never alone, God is with us night and day.

POEM: Notes On Marriage Proposals

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Lessons from my past to share for Allah’s sake,
Reasons why I rejected some proposals -
From one of them I disliked his baby-faced,
My ignorance back then was quite colossal,

He was to work in Madinah at that time,
I was at fault for judging him by his looks -
Thirteen years old then, needed loads of advice,
 Bulimic teen, rebellious, misunderstood.

Another proposal from a childhood friend,
Who similarly came to our house to meet,
Said no to his request which I now resent,
Simply because he was years younger than me.

My dear parents - Allah yarhamhum. Ameen.
Turned down another guy’s proposal for me,
In U.S. he worked while I stayed in Saudi,
Not seeming pious then, they thought he’d mislead.

At eighteen or so I made a big mistake
Of rejecting this man’s proposal wrongly.
To memorize the whole Qur’an he did aim,
From a good family, friends, Pakistani.

The silly reason why I denied again,
Was my assumption he was too soft and shy,
Blame if you like, I was ignorant back then,
I did many wrongs and couldn’t tell what’s right.

Later on Allah taught me about Islam,
Alhamdulillah through learning I was changed.
Value of marriage I loved to understand,
Noble traits like patience made me change my ways.

At twenty I was married to my cousin,
Our marriage though not perfect brought forth lessons.
At twenty-six or so I became first wife,
Loved my husband for Allah more than desires.

Tips regarding marriage proposals, to guide:
Pray the Istikhaarah prayer then decide.
To say yes or no it’s every woman’s right,
While recalling not to judge upon first sight.

Don’t do the wrongs I did. Do learn from mistakes.
On feeling attracted, choose the halal way,
Marry for Allah’s sake, complete your deen/faith,
Keep learning and applying Islam each day.

To parents or guardians of those who’ll marry:
Don’t expect perfection from anybody,
As you yourselves have flaws like everybody.
Don’t demand huge dowries. Make marriage easy.

In-laws don’t need to be from the same country,
Nor be the same socially / financially.
Beauty in diversity / large families.
Understand your kids, they’re the ones to marry.

Marriage is a blessed gift which Allah made
To unite souls who’ll exchange love lawfully,
A journey of loving lessons to God’s Way,
One of the means that strengthen spiritually.

POEM: May Our Marriage Motivate. Ameen.

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Dear husband, more words of love for Allah’s sake,
You may not read these, but in Jannah someday,
With Allah’s Will you’ll know what I used to say,
How I truly felt, missing you night and day.

Though you may be wed to up to four I’ll stay,
Even though we don’t see each other always,
Although we’re both busy and you’re far away,
For God, as your first wife I choose to remain.

I’ve loved and love lots, my love for you is strange,
Eccentric yet magnetic in many ways.
I can’t divorce as it’s hard to separate,
Promised to stay loyal since I was engaged.

For you to marry up to four it’s okay,
Accountable for all the choices we make,
I choose to be patient with you for God’s sake,
Contentedly married to you come what may.

Dear husband, that Allah loves you I do pray,
For your success in both worlds I supplicate,
Pray our love reforms us and strengthens our faith,
May this connection inspire and motivate. Ameen.
