Poem of the Month: OCTOBER 2013: A peaceful speech of mannerism
A world filled with people of all kinds.
Religion. Ethnicity. Socioeconomic status, one may find.
We should give manners to all.
Otherwise, part of our faith will fall.
Islam without manners is like a plant without water.
Its like not saying bismillah before a sheep undergoes slaughter.
Our Beloved Prophet peace be upon him is our perfect example that we should follow.
He wasn’t a music or filmstar such as those that may idolise today whose hearts are hollow.
He was sent by the Almighty Allah that created me and you.
His heart was clean like a sky that was clear and blue.
Our Prophet peace be upon him did not insult anyone.
What He wanted for himself, He wanted for everyone.
The speech of the tongue is of two:
Sweet that it softens the heart like bread and butter.
Or it can hurt like a knife stabbing pain that one will suffer.
The thing that needs to be sheltered most is the tongue.
Speak with good manners in good times and times when things go wrong.
A peace speech of mannerism it is.
Prevents a moment of regret that one will not forget.
Poem of the Month: NOVEMBER 2013: Allah – my Creator and everlasting friend.
What is the definition of a true friend? One who supports you besides Allah and family to the very end. It is not about having lots of them or just having one. I was told once that if one has a friend in life from start to finish, they are a very lucky bun.
A beautiful example can be seen between our Beloved Prophet (SAW) and Abu Bakr (RA) They went constantly together through thick and fine. You could sense the true brotherhood they had within. Abu Bakr even married his daughter to our Beloved Prophet (SAW). Between them, there was honesty, commitment, true love, brotherhood, manners and many respects.
Today, you will find many friendships that lack these aspects. But one thing to keep in mind is He who has no one, has Allah, and he who has Allah has everything. Allah is sufficient, so do not worry about anything.
On the Day of Resurrection, Friends will become foes. Each person will be worried about their deeds and where one goes. Create your connection with Allah. He is waitinf for your friendship and attention towards Him. He is your Protector, Creator, Witness, Judge, Merciful and aids one to light from dim.
He has the keys to Jannah, if the keys landed with people what would have happen? Imagine. Think. See the wisdom behind Allah’s commands. Trust in Allah and carry on your journey and fullfill Allah’s demands. Try your very best as this life is a test. It doesn’t matter who stays and who goes, in remembrance of Allah, our hearts will find rest.
POEM OF THE MONTH: DECEMBER 2013: Charity.
what charity means to me? read the upcoming lines and then you'll see.
benefits of it you'll find in Quran and Sunnah with clarity. PBUH says Believer’s shade on Day of Resurrection will be his charity.
Charity is the third pillar of islam. The reward behind it is deep than an Aswan Dam.
Prayer is only a foundation of what a muslim supposed to do. Having Compassion, Sincere Love and Helping others is what one should do too.
At verse (107:1-3), Allah says those who don't help orphans are like those who reject faith. Like how you want for your children and siblings, don't you want these children to live safe?
Safe education. Safe Shelter. Food and drink. Or due to lack of water balance, do you want their body cells to shrink?
When you help in charity, tell people to inspire them in doing so too. But don't do it out of pride, for then the good deeds will go out the blue.
Every charity act one does, should do out of sincerity. For the sake of Allah alone, as charity is obligatory.
Decades ago, my mum worked as a nurse in war. Bloodshed. Poverty. Destruction. Orphans. She saw.
Everytime we ate, she made sure our plates were clean not a grain of rice. She always checked our plates twice.
She raised me and my siblings up, on islam, manners and feeding the poor. Never reject a charity cause whereever you are, even if they come to the door.
Charity is a humanitarian concern. when you don't help others, its like the food on fire going to burn.
so try to donate no matter how much you earn. For when you hear stories of people who are less fortunate, gratefulness is what one will learn.
Poetry is not something i like to compete about. As the intention behind my words will come in doubt.
Poetry is something, i do to speak out about surrounding real issues. Rather than going to marches and tears in my tissues.
When you look up. Say Thank you to Allah. In your free time and in your salah.
Whenever you see someone you know with a frown give them a smile and try to make their frown upside down
For PBUH said also a smile is charity. So I smile to a sister wherever I go around Birmingham city.
However, when I see a muslim brother excluding my blood brothers and father, I lower my gaze and my heart turns like a soap with lather.
I don't mean to be moody. But my hayaa exceeds and just want to hide myself in a shroudy.
so Charity means alot of things, Not just donating money, clothes and jewellery with a bling.
Its about having a smile and have mercy on others Around the world, for your sisters and your brothers.
