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.

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.

God’s Love and Guidance are more than enough.
Keep your precious truths to yourself from fakes,
Who take your misdeeds when you they betray.
Though there are a few who may be trusted,
Be vigilant and wisely secretive.
This does not mean that we’re hiding something,
But cautiousness with whom to be loving.
Trust those who truthfully keep each promise,
And those who always maintain good habits.
Eschew those who stray because of their mood,
One moment they’re good, the next falsely true.
May Allah join us with the trustworthy
Worthy of Jannah next to God. Ameen.
Ameen. Special message to my dear parents,
To my Muslim family, distant loved ones,
Although we don’t see each other night and day,
Always note my loving you will still remain
Until it finds perfection up there someday,
In Jannah where there’s no worry nor dismay.
Our meetings sometimes rushed, loads of jobs to do.
Yet we forgive each other, knowing it’s true
Blessed love that leads to Jannah treasures value.
No stress, distress, tiredness, loss nor depression,
No despicable traits nor comparison.
So grand that one’s mind can’t even imagine.
The sincere ones who do good deeds aplenty,
The truthful supporters who love God truly.
And join us with those who’ll meet Him lovingly. Ameen.
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
Bismillah, Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar,
All good deeds we only do for Allah’s sake.
Our main goal in life is to be with Allah.
We love what Allah loves and hate what He hates.
Allah loves that we do good and pray on time,
Pray both the Sunnah and five daily prayers.
Allah also loves that we enjoin what’s right,
Forbid what’s wrong, and have Islamic manners.
We’re Muslims, faithful, honest and trustworthy,
Love Allah and all His Prophets sincerely –
For Allah we’re confident and not jealous,
We’re cheerful and friendly; we never bully.
We know well that when one is unkind or rude,
They’re having a bad day or they envy you.
When some display jealousy be glad that they
Showed us – God blessed us with talents they can’t do.
Regarding worldly things we never compare
Ourselves to those who disbelieve or are fake.
Show those in need mercy and understanding –
Whenever we can, give more than we can take.
If we’ve nothing to share, then sincere salaams,
Warm handshakes, compliments, smiles or kind advice.
We are Muslims; fair, wise, well-mannered and nice –
As true supporters of Truth, we shun all lies.
Allah hates sins, whether major or minor.
If we ever err, we return to Allah.
Allah the Most High is the Most Forgiving.
Allah always knows and hears all our duas.
Wherever we go, Allah always sees us,
There’s not one moment when no one is watching.
Thus what we’d ‘normally do’ we must avoid.
Always think of Allah before anything.
What goes around comes around. All deeds return
To their doers. If not soon, on Judgment Day.
May Allah make us among His righteous friends
Whom He’ll greet in Firdaus and see His Grand Face.
May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds, forgive all our wrongdoings, answer our du’as and reunite us with our Muslim loved ones in the uppermost level of Heaven Jannatul Firdaus next to Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam. Allahumma Innaka ‘Afuwwun Kareemun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annaa. Ameen.

Of how I started wearing niqaab with faith:
From birth to about ten years old, my young days,
That time when I too traveled to U.S.A.
I did not wear hijab at that early stage.
As a preteen, before age thirteen years old,
I embraced wearing hijab when outside home.
In sixth grade, I wore niqaab as school dress code,
At those Saudi public schools that are well-known,
Yet for a while I hid feelings that were wrong.
I wanted niqaab worn only in Saudi,
Was shy of wearing it in other countries,
Was conscious back then of many stares at me,
‘Till some Sheikhs answered my questions on T.V.
About niqaab – I’ve learned it’s mandatory.
Though young I was eager to learn more Islam,
So I researched more online to understand.
One proof of the obligation of niqaab:
Female pilgrims should not wear it during Hajj.
The niqaab also uplifts one’s faith/Imaan.
In my teenage years I wore niqaab when out,
Yet my confidence back then was not yet loud,
‘Till I saw her at this hotel’s restaurant,
A niqaabi in black, with good vibes about,
She inspired me – of her Islam she was proud.
In my twenties I learned to love niqaab more,
Whether in Saudi, Philippines, or abroad.
Of the niqaab’s importance I became sure,
Not caring what viewers think nor their vile slurs.
When people insult, your sins are theirs galore.
Niqaabis are loved not by their choice of clothes,
Appearance, riches, or beauty cheaply shown.
By our faith and personality we’re known.
To be with Allah, as His friends, is our goal.
May Jannatul Firdaus be our promised home. Ameen.
