POEM: When Allah Answers Prayers

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Allah the Most Wise answered my du'as in strange ways.
When I asked Him for guidance, He got me wide awake,
Infatuated with seeking knowledge night and day,
Learning Islam and leaving sins I had to forsake.

When I asked Him for protection, He exposed ex-friends,
He guided me to recognize actors who pretend,
Who draw fake smiles on their negative vibes I can sense -
So God distanced me from companions with vile intent.

When I asked Allah for His forgiveness and mercy,
He gave difficulties that erase past evil deeds,
Caused me to meet jealous folks who betray and mistreat
So I receive their good while they gain all my misdeeds.

When I asked Allah to make me among those He loves,
He granted trials to train me to never give up,
Made me an outcast so it's just me and Him Above,
To self-reflect and change until I'm ready enough.

When I asked Allah to make my character better,
He taught me humbleness by showing those blessed with more,
Contentment each time I remember special others,
And patience through meeting those whose morals are lesser.

Alhamdulillah I fell in love with solitude
And selective silence when friends range from none to few.
Loyalty to my spouse too has raised in magnitude,
Along with good deeds done away from spectators' views.

May Allah the Most Just answer my du'as daily,
And join me with those who'll see Him in Jannah. Ameen.
Note: When Allah answers, His responses are timely.
Allah knows best how to make our dreams reality.

POEM: A Tribute To Niqabi Sisters

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


A tribute for Allah's sake to niqabis,
Courageous sisters who value modesty,
Who dress to please Allah not society.
Their beauty's reserved for their husbands only.

Niqab is not just for those who are pretty,
It's for sisters who love acquiring good deeds,
In terms of piety they love to compete,
And set themselves apart from girls who are cheap.

They're wise enough to know if you have beauty,
Don't flaunt it but treasure it, save it and keep.
Conceal it like gemstones meant for the worthy.
Your best appeal is for your husband only.

Good looks come in various forms and qualities;
Don't claim niqab is only for the pretty.
The more a Muslimah would dress modestly,
As her esteem, faith and self-respect increase.

Allah is the One Whom we aspire to please,
We won't change if some view us negatively.
Only noble souls can sense Islam's beauty
And see the worth of modest communities.

More veiled sisters means less insecurity,
Less comparison to shun adultery.
To cover up willingly is to be free,
Unlike those enslaved by fashion industries.

Judge niqabis by their personality,
Unique minds and voices - not just the body.
Muslimahs wear hijab and cover fully,
While the niqab enhances one's dignity.

POEM: The Most Noble To Allah The Almighty

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Notes to self and reminders to share, for Allah's sake:
Your worth is not proven in having a pretty face,
Long nose, pouty lips, high cheekbones, not your height nor weight.
Your skin tone and country too don't differentiate.
All humans are Allah's servants regardless of race.

To Allah, janitors and CEOs are the same.
Whatever one's job is, each being is Allah's slave,
With strengths, limits and responsibilities to take.
To Allah the most noble are those with the right faith,
Who exceed others in morals, and do good always.

Being rich is nothing unless your wealth brings goodness,
Guides you to love charity and treat all with kindness.
If it makes you more helpful, your intellect is blessed.
If they keep you grateful while you don't forget the rest,
Allah's gifts to you can lead to spiritual success.

You're not better than such and such if you lack manners.
Never feel inferior to any unbeliever.
What measure one's value are faith and good character.
As Muslims, compete for Allah's Love and together.
To have Taqwa while trusting Allah is what matters.

POEM: Love Letter From Wife To Husband

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Love letter, for Allah's sake, from me to my husband,
Who if he may not read this then perhaps in Heaven:
Dear spouse, I'll always love you despite the long distance.
When far, you roam in my thoughts and imaginations.

As my other half, I can't think of separation,
Because I promised to love you since our engagement.
From Allah I long to be your treasure and blessing,
For your struggles, for striving, and for being Muslim.

In your absence, you teach me about independence,
Loyalty, faithfulness and most beautiful patience.
When present, you gift me with all sorts of emotions,
From being observant of romance and contentment.

To some, you may be the wrong one - to me, you're handsome,
You're just perfect for me the way you are each season.
While I may like others, our love is an exception,
It's a journey of attractions with myriad lessons.

Through loving you I learned to be loyal, forgiving,
Patient, closer to God Allah and more determined.
Since our connection, I won't think of separation -
Always I'll love you until Allah brings you to Him.

POEM: No To Niqab Ban

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


A letter, for Allah's sake, from a Muslim on behalf of many,
To those who think it is right to refuse niqabis' rights unjustly:
Why do you claim a piece of cloth/niqab is a threat to your city,
When there are myriad methods for some to conceal their identity?

The niqab is not just clothing but one of the keys to earn God's Love,
For Muslim women with self-respect, who in their faith wish to stay tough.
From the disobedient lewd lasses, the niqab distinguishes us.
Our goal is to be modest for God Only; we don't dress to impress.

The face we cover as it's the main source of beauty and attraction.
The voice, not one's appearance, is the icon for communication.
With the niqab, there'd be less cases of physical comparison,
And a woman's beauty is so special it's reserved for her husband.

So please understand it is unfair to ban this religious freedom.
If you leaders are concerned about your lands' safety and protection,
You might as well ban cosmetic surgery and all cosplay costumes,
Transgenderism, R-rated films, and the selling of all weapons.

By banning the niqab you're only instigating hatred, not peace.
Preventing some women from their love of modesty is tyranny.
Good countries should let their people co-exist despite diversity.
To ban the niqab makes a country close-minded, not esteemed nor free.

To check a woman's identity is okay, but don't fully ban.
The reasons why thousands of women wear niqab try to understand.
Other ways to prove identity are fingerprints, lines on one's hands,
DNA, natural gait, intellect and how the Muslimah sounds.

To Muslimahs in countries wherein wearing the niqab is not free,
Try to migrate to another place if you have the ability.
Otherwise do your best to please Allah and talk to Him steadfastly.
With God's Will you deserve Jannah Paradise for your sincerity.
Just say 'HasbunAllah wa Ne'm Al-Wakeel' and show Islam is peace.

POEM: Muslims Love Prophet Jesus

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


If I were asked ‘What would you say to Allah’s Prophet,
Jesus -Peace be upon him- if you were to meet him?’
I’d say, ‘Brother Jesus, as-salaamu ‘alaikum.
Don’t worry about those who don’t know that you’re Muslim.

Dear Jesus, one of Allah’s Prophets, you did your best,
To convey there’s Only One God was your main message.
You strove for Allah’s sake with so much faith and courage,
To worship only One God was what you encouraged.

As with all of God’s Prophets you had some enemies.
Shaytan misled some folks to false claims and misbelief,
Misguiding numbers to trust a lie – ‘the Trinity’.
Believing in more than One God brings disharmony.

Prophet Jesus, Allah knows you never claimed you’re ‘god’.
It’s our archenemy shaytan who loves strife and fraud.
Dear Jesus, we Muslims believe you’ll be coming back,
Returning before Judgment Day when most will be shocked

Surprised to know that Prophet Jesus was a Muslim,
Who believed in One God and the Prophet Muhammad [SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam].’
May Allah the Almighty reveal to all the truth
That Jesus is not god, but human like me and you. Ameen.

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.
