POEM: Don't Envy Anyone For What God Allah Gave Them

In the Name of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Remember that time when you've made a du'a
To ask Allah for something you want or need,
After some time you notice that someone else
Got what you asked for, which you hoped you'd achieve?

Allah can do what He wills as He is God,
Who grants His gifts to whom He wills -with wisdom.
And when Allah gives good things to someone, it
May be due to some good deeds which they have done.

Imagine a parent of some boys and girls -
When giving gifts, he'll give them what they deserve,
What they like based on their personalities,
What they need, or presents from which they can learn.

Don't get jealous of a Muslim's qualities,
Talents, experiences or good things they've made.
Jealousy is a bad trait of vain satan -
And that Muslim is your bro or sis in Faith.

Perhaps those Muslims you admire are being
Checked by Allah to see if they'll be grateful -
Or it could be that the blessings God gave them
Are means to Heaven or for others useful.

Three signs of jealous foes: they don't believe you -
Or loath the truth. Next, you they choose to ignore.
Third, they love to hate, and may hate supporting -
Or they'll bully to feel a bit superior.

Say no to jealousy; know that you're too good
To attain a bad trait that satan so loves.
And why would Muslims envy unbelievers
Who foolishly don't know "Allah is Above".

Islam is peace and mercy from Allah the Most Merciful :)
May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds,
forgive all our mistakes and join us with His righteous friends
in Firdaus/Heaven near Him and His noble Messenger Muhammad sallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam.
