POEM: A Prayer In Laylatul Qadr

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Dear Allah the Most Kind, Most Just and Most Near,
Yet again I’m here, I call on You, in tears.
As I raise my hands facing down so humbly,
I pray: “Allahumma Innaka ‘Afuwwun Tuhebbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annee.”
Dear Allah Most Forgiving, forgive me please.

Dear Allah, I’m overwhelmed, stressed, tired and weak.
Your Mercy and Guidance O’ Allah I seek.
Allah, I miss my loved ones and family,
That I can’t take care of them all I’m sorry.
Please alleviate my struggles and worries.

I’m sorry I didn’t do much, Allah Dear,
Some bad traits of mine have not yet disappeared.
So beautify my character, guide me please,
Cause me to overcome obstacles with ease,
And make the Path to Jannah ever easy.

O’ Allah, for every moment, stay with me,
Enlighten through lessons and prophetic dreams.
Keep forgiving me when I slack frequently,
The Way to Your Love don’t allow me to leave.
Dear Allah, Only You I worship daily.

O’ Allah, please help Muslims worldwide in need,
Please fix our state as we bow to You Only.
With what You bestowed inspire us to be pleased,
That we see You in Paradise please decree,
Our good deeds accept, and our sins forgive, please.

Allahumma Innaka ‘Afuwwun Tuhebbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annee. Ameen.

POEM: Good Teachers v.s. Bad Teaching Style

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


From teachers I've observed at schools I've been to,
And surveys of students regarding their likes,
With God's Will I've gathered nine differences
Between good teachers and bad teachers unwise:

_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*
One: Bad teachers teach with insincerity,
Full of lies, they mainly work for the money.
Good teachers teach sincerely for Allah's sake,
To help and share their knowledge out of mercy.
_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*
Two: Bad teachers are often late or absent,
Late to arrive in class, early to go home.
Good teachers are regularly on time, and
Don't mind completing their work in class alone.
_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*
Three: Bad teachers get angry when asked questions -
Lessons unclear - for them 'one word is enough'.
Good teachers are ready to answer and help,
They love making things easy that which is tough.
_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*
Four: Bad teachers lack good manners and kind words.
No words of encouragement - they hate to smile.
Good teachers are motherly, fatherly, nice -
Meetings with their students are fun and worthwhile.
_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*
Five: Bad teachers treat parents as enemies -
They hate them in class, like they have things to hide.
Good teachers see parents as friends or teammates,
And they welcome guests to their class anytime.
_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*
Six: Bad teachers are so good at backbiting -
They speak badly of both teachers and students.
Good Muslim teachers know that God is Watching,
Gossip shows one's ignorance - and imprudence.
_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*
Seven: Bad teachers take their class for granted -
They don't correct mistakes, and don't grade on time.
Good teachers are always honest in grading,
And are proud, not jealous, when a student shines.
_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*
Eight: Bad teachers refuse to lead or follow -
They're passive - or the school's rules they contradict.
Good teachers have initiative to do right -
Both leaders and followers, they're not too strict.
_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*
Nine: Bad teachers don't take control of their class.
With their class so noisy, not all students learn.
Good teachers are able to quiet a class
Of many students, through being kind and firm.
_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*
While each teacher has his/her own teaching style,
What's important is that knowledge is received.
Countries can thrive when all are educated
And are willing to help meet each other's needs.
_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*
The Prophet Muhammad* is the best teacher -
Many lessons and good morals he had taught.
Teachers, know that teaching is a trust from God.
Thus, do your best, as it's the most noble job.
_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*_*
May Allah the Most Kind accept our good deeds,
And reward us for teaching all that we know.
Ameen. So teach for Allah's sake, keep learning,
Educate, inspire, love - the Way to God show.


*SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam~

POEM: Niqabis, wear niqab for Allah's sake.

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Niqabis, wear the niqaab for Allah’s sake,
Or the full face-veil to differentiate
Yourself as a Muslimah from those astray,
Not to feel superior, you wish to obey....
___________________
Stay modest as the *Prophet Muhammad’s wives,
Who were known to be clad in black when outside,
By their voices or style they were recognized,
Their gems and adornments, like true queens, they’d hide.
___________________
With the niqaab, no man needs to know your age,
No need for heavy make-up each night and day,
Judged not by looks, but by what you do and say,
A reminder for some to lower the gaze.
___________________
Fear Allah Almighty as much as you can,
When asked to unveil face for checkpoint reasons,
Find ways to comply without any problems.
Acts are rewarded based on their intentions.
___________________
While obeying God some struggles you may meet,
Be steadfast, in Jannah is real bliss and peace.
May Allah forgive us, accept our good deeds,
And allow us to see Him smiling. Ameen.

*SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam~

POEM: What Some Friends Have Taught Me Regarding Friendship

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Some lessons on friendship I've learned from old friends,
Friends of various types and personalities -
No lies as always, no guessing nor pretense,
Just taking some lessons from past memories.

From Saudi friends - at private and public schools,
I've learned that stereotyping is but a lie,
Friends can be found in both the cool and uncool,
Friendship develops when both parties are kind.

From friends who come from their country Pakistan,
I've learned how generosity forms liking,
To be close to someone help and understand,
Egoism may keep one from forgiving.

From Yemeni sisters whom I still recall,
I've learned that at times one must make the first move,
Accept the friendship of those who are sincere,
For strong bonds are seen between friends who are true.

From a special ex-friend who chose to stay far,
I've learned that when you love find a middle way,
Don't love or hate too much, some friends become foes,
And some strangers may transform to friends someday.

Now from some of the new friends recently made,
I've observed that Only Allah we can trust,
It's best to be with Him than befriend some fakes,
Who talk badly and clearly put on an act.

 While some may hate you out of mere jealousy,
There are those few who can be your best of friends,
Who insist on sharing, seeing you happy,
And who secretly pray for you now and then.

What makes some people click and get along quick,
From experience, is when both friends are alike,
In terms of shared likes, dislikes, similar goals,
Comfort with each other and distance from lies.

Regardless of how many friends you have made,
Friendship with Allah is what matters the most.
Some Muslims on earth may not be that famous,
Yet Allah and those in Heaven love them so.

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: Similar Souls Likely Get Along

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
    With Allah’s Will similar souls get along.
    Good souls click with the right, bad ones with the wrong.
    Those who share your goals in your circle belong,
    With your own team, not with all, you can get on.

    ____________
    So when you wonder why with this you both clicked,
    Your love increases with that each time you meet,
    While with others your likes and dislikes won’t fit,
    It’s because souls seek those not too different.

    ____________
    Never met them but I liked some instantly,
    Seeing them share gifts of knowledge lovingly.
    As for those few I loathe, yet I’ve known for years,
    Bad vibes they give out I don’t want to go near.

    ____________
    More likely to be friends with those more like you,
    If you’re truthful you’ll attract souls who are true,
    Liars and fakes won’t agree with what you do,
    With the deceitful you’ll more often dispute.

    ____________
    Your friends may define you, choose them carefully.
    May Allah Almighty grant ability
    To pick wisely – quality then quantity,
    Good companions who want Jannah too. Ameen.
    ____________
    Imam Al-Bukhari (may Allah have mercy on him) reported in his Sahih that 'Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) said: “I heard the Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam saying: ‘Souls are like conscripted soldiers; those whom they recognize, they get along with, and those whom they do not recognize, they will not get along with.’”
    (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Kitab Ahadith Al-Anbiyaa’).
    www.islamqa.info/en/3864

    May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds, forgive all our wrongdoings, answer our du'as and reunite us with our Muslim loved ones in the uppermost level of Heaven Jannatul Firdaus next to Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam. Allahumma Innaka 'Afuwwun Kareemun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annaa. Ameen.

    POEM: Forgive And Unite As One Ummah

    In the Name of Allah
    The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
      Love for Allah’s sake Muslims and family,
      Include each other’s names in du’as daily.
      True love is found in advising sincerely,
      Guiding to what’s right which brings serenity.
      ____________
      Don’t let vile pride stop you from understanding,
      Nor let arrogance keep you from forgiving.
      Prone to err and forget, as human beings,
      All have flaws and reasons for every doing.
      ____________
      Though improbable to get along with all,
      To stay polite with morals it’s possible.
      Put yourself in their shoes, understand their call,
      Recall no one’s perfect and impeccable.
      ____________
      Tips to not hate those whom you must love: Listen.
      Pay attention to their side. Learn expressions.
      List good times you had and when you needed them.
      Forgive like you would long to be forgiven.
       ____________
      Forgive for Allah’s sake the Most Merciful.
      Move on to meet relief and sleep whilst peaceful.
      Did you know, satan cheers when Muslims quarrel.
      Unite as one Ummah to win life’s battles.
      ____________
      Allah the Almighty said, “So know (O Muhammad – peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), and ask forgiveness for your sin, and also for (the sin of) believing men and believing women.” [The Noble Qur'an 47:19] 
      www.islamqa.info/en/140798

      May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds, forgive all our wrongdoings, answer our du'as and reunite us with our Muslim loved ones in the uppermost level of Heaven Jannatul Firdaus next to Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam.
