POEM: Allah Knows That Things Don't Always Go Your Way

In the Name of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

When you pray Istikhaarah and call Allah,
When you cry and wish for a dream to come true,
And you wait and see how it does not happen,
Take note "Allah has something better for you."

So for instance if you added some long lost
Friends on facebook, and they see how you have changed,
Don't be sad if they turned down your request, for
Allah doesn't want you misled by their ways.

If you prayed to God to grant you some "best friends",
And you look around to see none are like you,
Allah may be saving you from backbiting,
Mocking and playing games you should never do.

And know -that Allah is always there with you,
Always with you even before you were born.
Even if the world stays silent or busy,
You have Allah with Whom you're never alone.

So when you pray and plan, Allah also plans.
Allah knows all His slaves and what they deserve.
If some people steal from you or disrespect,
Allah may want the sins you did to be theirs.

When Allah loves some, He guides them to Islam.
Through others sinning against them, they are free -
Of sins done in the past, present and future,
'Till they are welcome in Heaven smilingly.

Thus, smile, don't worry if things don't go your way.
From your sins God Allah may be saving you,
Or Allah may want you all to Himself so
Your wish to be with Him in Firdaus comes true.


May Allah the Most Forgiving forgive us always, accept all our good deeds and join us with His loved ones in Firdaus the uppermost level of Paradise where Allah and His beloved Messenger Muhammad sallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam are. Ameen.
