POEM: New Lessons On Love I've Learned This Year

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

New lessons on love I've learned within this year,
To inspire Muslims to keep those they hold dear.
One: Even though you may find some attractive,
To your spouse you stay loyal and supportive.

It's possible to like some to a degree,
Yet you love your spouse more with much loyalty.
Two: Don't overlook subtle signs of true love,
Like when for Salah you wake each other up,

Or when you give each other hugs and kisses,
And when closeness to your spouse you can't resist.
Three: Love stories of others should not threaten,
But to push you to have your marriage strengthened.

Be happy for other Muslims' marriage lives,
Focus on succeeding as good husband/wife.
Four: You know your love is genuine and real
When all emotions your lover lets you feel,

Hating when you miss them, loving their best traits,
Excited to see them, sad when they're away.
Five: Your love is a gift if it lifts Imaan,
Blessed if it helps you patiently understand,

Directs you to thanking Allah night and day,
And guides you to contentment when you're dismayed.
If something about your soulmate bothers you,
You'll still fall for their other sweet attributes.

So marriage lasts longer, do it for Allah,
Marry for Allah's sake. Marriage is Sunnah.
Being married doesn't spell out 'perfect life',
There's no perfection except in Paradise.

Allah the Almighty said: 
"They (your wives) are a clothing (covering) for you and you too are a clothing (covering) for them."
 [Qur'an 2:187]

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. (old youtube channel)
