POEM: Be Whom God Allah Wants You To Be

In the Name of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Just because a person has many friends or
Millions of fans does not mean that God likes them.
These celebs or wannabe celebrities
May be guilty of disbelief and/or sins.

Just because a Muslim has a few friends or
Many haters who loathe them out of envy,
Does not mean Allah hates them. Allah loves them
For the good deeds they do for His sake only.

Don't think that fame is a sign Allah loves you.
Don't think all famous people never get sad.
Know that Allah's Prophets had enemies too,
And good things can't really be mixed with what's bad.

There's no one on earth whom everybody loves.
Everyone has their own set of friends and foes.
Be whom God, not what His slaves, wants you to be.
Be the Muslim Allah loves and always knows.

Don't worry if you don't get along with some,
As long as you're whom Allah wants you to be.
The world doesn't revolve around us. Our goal
Is to be loved by Allah Who always sees.

May Allah the Most Merciful forgive us always, accept all our good deeds and join us with His righteous friends in Firdaus/Heaven near Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad sallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Ameen.
