SONNET: The Love Of A Loyal Wife

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

The Love Of A Loyal Wife:
She married him purely for Allah's sake,
With sincere intentions to do her best
In being his gift who loves him always -
His wife and friend who wants all his needs met.

Even though he's imperfect she recalls
Every good thing and memory of him.
By his positive side she's still enthralled,
And of his human flaws she's forgiving.

If ever he neglects in any way,
She takes note of how Allah is Watching.
What keep her going are love, patience, faith
And her wish to meet Allah in Heaven.

A loyal wife is a gem worth keeping,
Her love remains though to some he's nothing.

Three lessons I've learned this Ramadan:
1. Anything done sincerely to please Allah becomes easier and blessed. 2. Sharing what you can share without expecting anything in return except for Allah's pleasure and rewards gives you a nice feeling that InshaAllah you have done another good deed that will InshaAllah be among many means of being welcome in Jannah Paradise. 3. Forgiving a Muslim for Allah's sake while understanding that Allah deals with all justly is better than being awkwardly aloof and arrogant. Allah hates those servants who behave arrogantly unworthily.

May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds and fasting, and may Allah the Most Forgiving forgive all our sins and reunite us with our Muslim loved ones in Jannatul Firdaus near Him and His noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam. Allahumma Innaka 'Afuwwun tuhibbul 'afwa fa'fu 'annaa. Ameen.
