POEM: When Allah Answers Prayers

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Allah the Most Wise answered my du'as in strange ways.
When I asked Him for guidance, He got me wide awake,
Infatuated with seeking knowledge night and day,
Learning Islam and leaving sins I had to forsake.

When I asked Him for protection, He exposed ex-friends,
He guided me to recognize actors who pretend,
Who draw fake smiles on their negative vibes I can sense -
So God distanced me from companions with vile intent.

When I asked Allah for His forgiveness and mercy,
He gave difficulties that erase past evil deeds,
Caused me to meet jealous folks who betray and mistreat
So I receive their good while they gain all my misdeeds.

When I asked Allah to make me among those He loves,
He granted trials to train me to never give up,
Made me an outcast so it's just me and Him Above,
To self-reflect and change until I'm ready enough.

When I asked Allah to make my character better,
He taught me humbleness by showing those blessed with more,
Contentment each time I remember special others,
And patience through meeting those whose morals are lesser.

Alhamdulillah I fell in love with solitude
And selective silence when friends range from none to few.
Loyalty to my spouse too has raised in magnitude,
Along with good deeds done away from spectators' views.

May Allah the Most Just answer my du'as daily,
And join me with those who'll see Him in Jannah. Ameen.
Note: When Allah answers, His responses are timely.
Allah knows best how to make our dreams reality.

POEM: A Tribute To Niqabi Sisters

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


A tribute for Allah's sake to niqabis,
Courageous sisters who value modesty,
Who dress to please Allah not society.
Their beauty's reserved for their husbands only.

Niqab is not just for those who are pretty,
It's for sisters who love acquiring good deeds,
In terms of piety they love to compete,
And set themselves apart from girls who are cheap.

They're wise enough to know if you have beauty,
Don't flaunt it but treasure it, save it and keep.
Conceal it like gemstones meant for the worthy.
Your best appeal is for your husband only.

Good looks come in various forms and qualities;
Don't claim niqab is only for the pretty.
The more a Muslimah would dress modestly,
As her esteem, faith and self-respect increase.

Allah is the One Whom we aspire to please,
We won't change if some view us negatively.
Only noble souls can sense Islam's beauty
And see the worth of modest communities.

More veiled sisters means less insecurity,
Less comparison to shun adultery.
To cover up willingly is to be free,
Unlike those enslaved by fashion industries.

Judge niqabis by their personality,
Unique minds and voices - not just the body.
Muslimahs wear hijab and cover fully,
While the niqab enhances one's dignity.

POEM: The Most Noble To Allah The Almighty

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Notes to self and reminders to share, for Allah's sake:
Your worth is not proven in having a pretty face,
Long nose, pouty lips, high cheekbones, not your height nor weight.
Your skin tone and country too don't differentiate.
All humans are Allah's servants regardless of race.

To Allah, janitors and CEOs are the same.
Whatever one's job is, each being is Allah's slave,
With strengths, limits and responsibilities to take.
To Allah the most noble are those with the right faith,
Who exceed others in morals, and do good always.

Being rich is nothing unless your wealth brings goodness,
Guides you to love charity and treat all with kindness.
If it makes you more helpful, your intellect is blessed.
If they keep you grateful while you don't forget the rest,
Allah's gifts to you can lead to spiritual success.

You're not better than such and such if you lack manners.
Never feel inferior to any unbeliever.
What measure one's value are faith and good character.
As Muslims, compete for Allah's Love and together.
To have Taqwa while trusting Allah is what matters.

POEM: Love Letter From Wife To Husband

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Love letter, for Allah's sake, from me to my husband,
Who if he may not read this then perhaps in Heaven:
Dear spouse, I'll always love you despite the long distance.
When far, you roam in my thoughts and imaginations.

As my other half, I can't think of separation,
Because I promised to love you since our engagement.
From Allah I long to be your treasure and blessing,
For your struggles, for striving, and for being Muslim.

In your absence, you teach me about independence,
Loyalty, faithfulness and most beautiful patience.
When present, you gift me with all sorts of emotions,
From being observant of romance and contentment.

To some, you may be the wrong one - to me, you're handsome,
You're just perfect for me the way you are each season.
While I may like others, our love is an exception,
It's a journey of attractions with myriad lessons.

Through loving you I learned to be loyal, forgiving,
Patient, closer to God Allah and more determined.
Since our connection, I won't think of separation -
Always I'll love you until Allah brings you to Him.

POEM: No To Niqab Ban

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


A letter, for Allah's sake, from a Muslim on behalf of many,
To those who think it is right to refuse niqabis' rights unjustly:
Why do you claim a piece of cloth/niqab is a threat to your city,
When there are myriad methods for some to conceal their identity?

The niqab is not just clothing but one of the keys to earn God's Love,
For Muslim women with self-respect, who in their faith wish to stay tough.
From the disobedient lewd lasses, the niqab distinguishes us.
Our goal is to be modest for God Only; we don't dress to impress.

The face we cover as it's the main source of beauty and attraction.
The voice, not one's appearance, is the icon for communication.
With the niqab, there'd be less cases of physical comparison,
And a woman's beauty is so special it's reserved for her husband.

So please understand it is unfair to ban this religious freedom.
If you leaders are concerned about your lands' safety and protection,
You might as well ban cosmetic surgery and all cosplay costumes,
Transgenderism, R-rated films, and the selling of all weapons.

By banning the niqab you're only instigating hatred, not peace.
Preventing some women from their love of modesty is tyranny.
Good countries should let their people co-exist despite diversity.
To ban the niqab makes a country close-minded, not esteemed nor free.

To check a woman's identity is okay, but don't fully ban.
The reasons why thousands of women wear niqab try to understand.
Other ways to prove identity are fingerprints, lines on one's hands,
DNA, natural gait, intellect and how the Muslimah sounds.

To Muslimahs in countries wherein wearing the niqab is not free,
Try to migrate to another place if you have the ability.
Otherwise do your best to please Allah and talk to Him steadfastly.
With God's Will you deserve Jannah Paradise for your sincerity.
Just say 'HasbunAllah wa Ne'm Al-Wakeel' and show Islam is peace.

POEM: Muslims Love Prophet Jesus

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


If I were asked ‘What would you say to Allah’s Prophet,
Jesus -Peace be upon him- if you were to meet him?’
I’d say, ‘Brother Jesus, as-salaamu ‘alaikum.
Don’t worry about those who don’t know that you’re Muslim.

Dear Jesus, one of Allah’s Prophets, you did your best,
To convey there’s Only One God was your main message.
You strove for Allah’s sake with so much faith and courage,
To worship only One God was what you encouraged.

As with all of God’s Prophets you had some enemies.
Shaytan misled some folks to false claims and misbelief,
Misguiding numbers to trust a lie – ‘the Trinity’.
Believing in more than One God brings disharmony.

Prophet Jesus, Allah knows you never claimed you’re ‘god’.
It’s our archenemy shaytan who loves strife and fraud.
Dear Jesus, we Muslims believe you’ll be coming back,
Returning before Judgment Day when most will be shocked

Surprised to know that Prophet Jesus was a Muslim,
Who believed in One God and the Prophet Muhammad [SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam].’
May Allah the Almighty reveal to all the truth
That Jesus is not god, but human like me and you. Ameen.

POEM: On Isolation During Times Of Fitna

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Dear Allah the Almighty One, the All-Knowing King,
Recently my Iman has been low and decreasing
Each time I mingle with the faithless and deceiving,
Who indulge in fruitless talks, lying and gossiping,
Whilst the state of the Ummah seems so discouraging.

Thus I’ve decided, after reading some Ahadeeth,
To befriend solitude and avoid vile company.
Once I recognize actors acting suspiciously,
Through their gestures and bad vibes they give unknowingly,
I grant them my distance so they won’t know the real me.

I’ve embraced seclusion for Your Sake Allah Alone.
Allah is always with me I’m delighted to know.
The Noble Qur’an I’d rather read than be with those
Whose aimless companionship cause my faith to go low.
Please forgive me, Allah, when I leave them on their own.

Until I find pious companions whom I can trust,
I busy myself with lots of Dhikr and Du’as,
Contemplating on meanings of vivid dreams I have,
And regularly making du’a for the Ummah,
Praying my patience is one way to Jannah above.

Dear Allah guide me away from where I should not be,
Places wherein wrong crowds only make my faith decrease.
Provide guidance O’ Allah and Jannah please decree,
Lead me to Paradise for my belief and good deeds,
And for striving to make the right decisions. Ameen.

POEM: On Homosexuality & Same-Sex Attraction

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Some notes on homosexuality – a sin,
A major sin and evil deed forbidden.
It distorts the nature of human beings.
As a sinful desire, it is disgusting,
Among wrongdoings like deceit and stealing.

Same-sex attraction is what Lut’s people did,
Rebelling and doing the prohibited -
They disobeyed God as they were conceited.
So stubborn, they chose to remain misguided,
Ignoring their innocence since they were kids.

Allah the Almighty made Eve for Adam.
Allah made woman for man as companion.
God’s enemy shaytan, foe of all humans,
Wants chaos through messing with God’s creation,
Trying to misguide them into vile thinking.

Accursed shaytan loves it when humans lessen
In logic, good morals and population -
When moms don’t give birth but become lesbians,
When lions from men act and look feminine,
While others change bodies from discontentment. 

To worship One God is nature of mankind,
To obey Allah’s Laws and do what is right.
The opposite gender man was meant to like.
Same-sex attraction, an abnormal desire,
Can be controlled with faith and knowledge acquired.

One can’t be born with homosexuality,
As babies come to earth completely sin-free.
This may develop in some unknowingly
As when boys are not stopped when they act girly,
Or when girls get too close unnaturally.

Attraction may happen when love gets extreme.
So when you like some do so moderately.
Loving for Allah is a Muslim’s duty,
Guiding and reminding with sincerity.
That same genders can marry we disagree.

POEM: Reviving Some Sunnahs Of The Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu Alaihi Wa Sallam

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Some Sunnahs of the Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam to revive:
Two Rak’ahs Sunnah upon entering the Masjid,
Showing respect to elders, being playful with kids,
Helping around the house, being loving to one’s wives,
Staying truthful and when joking never telling lies,

Fasting regularly every Monday and Thursday,
Brushing and cleansing one’s teeth before one starts to pray,
Exchanging salaams and handshakes when meeting others,
Starting most actions from the right and in odd number,
Meeting loved ones almost always with a cheerful face,

Praying often Tahajjud at night when most would sleep,
Not complaining about food he did not want to eat,
Brisk and dynamic was his usual way of walking,
Articulate, wise, eloquent, clear and well-spoken,
Courage and softness he could balance beautifully,

He took proper care of his inner and outward self,
In what is right whenever he could he’d strive to help,
At times to energize he would take afternoon naps,
Knew when to work ambitiously and when to relax,
In lots of Dhikr and Du’as he loved to indulge,

Da’wah was his mission – enjoin right and forbid wrong,
As a leader and teacher he was brave, smart and strong.
May Allah the Almighty accept all our good deeds,
Allow us in Jannah and Kawthar River. Ameen.
Stick to the Prophet’s Sunnah to join those who have won.

POEM: Wear The Right Hijab For Allah's Sake

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


The Hijab for Allah’s sake is to cover,
Conceal one’s adornments that should be treasured.
A woman’s gems must be reserved for her spouse,
Not meant to tempt strangers, distract nor arouse.

Wear the Hijab to obey Allah the King,
To be distinguished from the disobedient,
As Muslimahs on the Right Way to be seen,
Known as followers of the true religion.

Muslimahs are free, not enslaved by fashion.
What clothes to wear is not a daily problem.
Be liked for who you are, not for your clothing.
Born to worship God, not serve His creation.

The best Hijab is the one which covers most,
Wear what conceals beauty, not attractive clothes.
The more self-respect a woman truly has,
The more she’ll try to properly cover up.

If you’re proud of something and you should flaunt it,
Show the fact you’re Muslim, chaste and obedient.
Recall how you’re here to please Allah Only,
Long for Allah’s Love through faith and modesty.

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: Regarding Those Who Are Incompatible

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Recall your purpose in life, to please Allah,
To see our God, the Creator, in Jannah.
Because not all creation have the same goal,
With each one it makes sense you can’t get along.

So forget about those who rejected you,
Who betrayed and proved their friendship is not true.
No more stalking from now on those you don’t know,
Strangers who prefer to be by you unknown.

Haters are but critics who differ from us,
Too different from us, or just envious.
Your friends, even if few, are those who agree
To stand by you and join you in your journey.

If you’re sincere and aim to please Only God,
You won’t get on with clowns who live to show off.
If your self-esteem is high and ego low,
You’ll intimidate those who feel they’re below.

The truthful can’t get on with those who love lies.
The wise repel those who dislike real advice.
Beautiful souls scare those with evil inside.
Tough warriors are too strong for those who can’t fight.

Seldom would you see lions befriending snakes.
Never take offence when you’re ignored by fakes.
Move on to achieve your goals for Allah’s sake,
Even if you’re on your own towards God’s Way.

Around the world there are those who side with you,
Who do a lot of the good things that you do.
Unmet friends you may meet in Jannah someday.
Never alone, God is with us night and day.

POEM: Notes On Marriage Proposals

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Lessons from my past to share for Allah’s sake,
Reasons why I rejected some proposals -
From one of them I disliked his baby-faced,
My ignorance back then was quite colossal,

He was to work in Madinah at that time,
I was at fault for judging him by his looks -
Thirteen years old then, needed loads of advice,
 Bulimic teen, rebellious, misunderstood.

Another proposal from a childhood friend,
Who similarly came to our house to meet,
Said no to his request which I now resent,
Simply because he was years younger than me.

My dear parents - Allah yarhamhum. Ameen.
Turned down another guy’s proposal for me,
In U.S. he worked while I stayed in Saudi,
Not seeming pious then, they thought he’d mislead.

At eighteen or so I made a big mistake
Of rejecting this man’s proposal wrongly.
To memorize the whole Qur’an he did aim,
From a good family, friends, Pakistani.

The silly reason why I denied again,
Was my assumption he was too soft and shy,
Blame if you like, I was ignorant back then,
I did many wrongs and couldn’t tell what’s right.

Later on Allah taught me about Islam,
Alhamdulillah through learning I was changed.
Value of marriage I loved to understand,
Noble traits like patience made me change my ways.

At twenty I was married to my cousin,
Our marriage though not perfect brought forth lessons.
At twenty-six or so I became first wife,
Loved my husband for Allah more than desires.

Tips regarding marriage proposals, to guide:
Pray the Istikhaarah prayer then decide.
To say yes or no it’s every woman’s right,
While recalling not to judge upon first sight.

Don’t do the wrongs I did. Do learn from mistakes.
On feeling attracted, choose the halal way,
Marry for Allah’s sake, complete your deen/faith,
Keep learning and applying Islam each day.

To parents or guardians of those who’ll marry:
Don’t expect perfection from anybody,
As you yourselves have flaws like everybody.
Don’t demand huge dowries. Make marriage easy.

In-laws don’t need to be from the same country,
Nor be the same socially / financially.
Beauty in diversity / large families.
Understand your kids, they’re the ones to marry.

Marriage is a blessed gift which Allah made
To unite souls who’ll exchange love lawfully,
A journey of loving lessons to God’s Way,
One of the means that strengthen spiritually.

POEM: May Our Marriage Motivate. Ameen.

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Dear husband, more words of love for Allah’s sake,
You may not read these, but in Jannah someday,
With Allah’s Will you’ll know what I used to say,
How I truly felt, missing you night and day.

Though you may be wed to up to four I’ll stay,
Even though we don’t see each other always,
Although we’re both busy and you’re far away,
For God, as your first wife I choose to remain.

I’ve loved and love lots, my love for you is strange,
Eccentric yet magnetic in many ways.
I can’t divorce as it’s hard to separate,
Promised to stay loyal since I was engaged.

For you to marry up to four it’s okay,
Accountable for all the choices we make,
I choose to be patient with you for God’s sake,
Contentedly married to you come what may.

Dear husband, that Allah loves you I do pray,
For your success in both worlds I supplicate,
Pray our love reforms us and strengthens our faith,
May this connection inspire and motivate. Ameen.

POEM: Seven Signs Of Jealousy

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


Signs of jealousy, in few minutes, to share,
Envy found in frenemies, foes or strangers:
One: No congrats, no kindness to show they care.
No compliments when they see you seem better.

Two: Telling lies about themselves and untruths,
Breaking promises, almost unreal with you.
Three: Not thankful, never showing gratitude.
Do them a favor and they’ll just frown at you.

Four: Treating you rudely with awful manners,
Shoving or excluding you where they gather.
Five: Joking or laughing at you whenever
You pass by them engulfed in jealous laughter.

Six: Silent with you yet with others chatty.
Quiet when you’re around while, like spies, nosy.
Seven: Suspicious of you so constantly,
Doubtful of your merits and best qualities.

Seven signs of those guilty of vile envy.
The more haters you get, the better really,
They attest to your blessings, that you’re lucky,
Charmed you’re not stuck with their insecurity.

So next time you notice those who are jealous,
Thank them inside for being your witnesses,
Envious people acknowledge you are blessed,
Not knowing that we all have gifts, joys and tests.

May Allah the Most Kind bless all that He gave,
Beautify us with good deeds and noble traits,
Allow us to enter Jannah, see His Face,
And take us smiling with love and grace. Ameen.

POEM: On Lost Friendships And Those We Once Knew

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


A poem on the topic of lost friendships,
Friends transformed to foes and those we used to know,
From lessons learned through experience, sharing tips
To remind others that they are not alone.

On facebook I’ve spotted lots of folks I knew
From school, places I’ve been to, when we were young.
With some so many adventures I went through,
Swapped jokes and laughter, played games, had loads of fun.

Numbers of them I’ve added but they refused,
Probably disliking my transformation,
The jealous among them hate what I now do,
While the rest have old memories forgotten.

Strangely I remember the good times we had,
Soccer, jogging, yoga, playing Truth or Dare,
Long telephone-calls and fancy teenage fads,
Bandanas we wore, styles we tried on our hair,

Exchanging VCDs, DVDs and mags,
And other stuff we used to do together.
At times I wonder what’s the point of those hugs
And love if they had no place in the future.

Then I’ve learned: People come and go, few remain.
Past friends are teachers who taught us memories.
Present names are tests. True friends are those who stay.
Rare worthy ones make it to your VIP.

As for online friends who ditched you, it’s okay.
Learn not to acquire their awful qualities.
Lost friends in this world can always be replaced.
Those who’ll like you share your goals, dislikes and needs.

So long as Allah loves you, you are all-right.
Make Allah your Best Friend, Qur’an by your side,
Books are neat companions, Tahajjud at night,
No need for evil friends who lie and backbite.

May Allah the Most Kind grant us His Friendship,
His Love and entry to Jannah Paradise.
Ameen. Gifts to find in all relationships:
Self-awareness, increased strength, a light that guides.

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.
