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. (old youtube channel)

POEM: O’ Allah Forgive My Dear Parents. Ameen.

In the Name of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

    O’ Allah, the Most Merciful, Most Loving,
    Some good deeds my parents did back when living,
    As a witness that my parents did their best,
    Praying Jannatul Ferdaus is where they rest:

    Dear Allah, I remember those nights back then
    Seeing my parents pray Tahajjud often,
    My Dad as my Mom’s Imam, I’d find them both
    Praying together for success in both worlds.

    My Mom, a great mom, did whatever she could
    To fulfill our needs, she cleaned, sew clothes and cooked,
    Woke us early for Fajr Salah on time,
    Was always there to love, feed, hug and advise.

    Before going to school I’d kiss her goodbye,
    Writing her Islamic books as I’d arrive.
    Always busy researching about Islam,
    She taught me lessons I had to understand.

    My Dad, a wonderful dad, tried his best too
    In caring for us, buying supplies for school.
    Often he’d come home from work with lots of sweets,
    Ensure we had blankets before he would sleep.

    Many times he’d assist with school assignments.
    Though closer to Mom, my Dad was still my friend.
    I recall that time he sat right next to me
    To prevent boys mixing, to teach modesty.

     MashaAllah both were active in Da’wah,
    Sharing Islamic talks and giving Zakah.
    Saw how they’d donate boxes of food and clothes
    To needy loved ones and refugees unknown.

    Always concerned for oppressed Muslims worldwide,
    In Iraq, Kashmir, Chechnya, Palestine,
    And all countries, they did whatever they could
    Through du’as and teaching Islam as all should.

    My parents too loved feeding stray cats and birds,
    Strived to teach us good manners and keep us learned.
    From Mom’s advice is not to be material,
    To have good manners. From Dad: to stay faithful.

    Before Mom died, I helped her pray her prayers,
    Lifting her arms, saying ‘Allahu Akbar’.
    On seeing Dad passed in ICU, told him
    ‘You’re a martyr, we’ll meet in Jannah again.’

    No nights and days pass without sorrow greeting,
    May my tears expiate all my sins. Ameen.
    May Allah Almighty always grant Mercy
    And unite me with my parents in Jannah. Ameen.

    Allah the Almighty said, “And We have enjoined on man to be dutiful and kind to his parents.” [The Noble Qur’an 46:15]

    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.

    SONNET: The Insecure V.S. The Confident

    In The Name Of Allah
    The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

    When this shopper bumps their cart into yours,
    Or some salespeople are late to respond,
    And they don’t say sorry for seeming coarse,
    Note – they’re insecure or plain ignorant.
    They witness you’re better so they act ‪‎rude,
    They’re freaks of nature uneducated.
    To be unkind is to be insecure.
    Bad traits from the jealous are expected.
    The confident ones like to lift you up,
    Enjoy seeing you smile, can give advice,
    At anyone’s mishaps would never laugh,
    Are wisely nice and can apologize.
    Stay friendly, confident for Allah’s sake,
    Grateful that you’re with those on the Right Way.
    Some Tips For Good Communication With People

    Some Ahadith Regarding Good Manners In Islam

    Allah the Almighty knows best.
    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 Jannatul Firdaus next to Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam. Allahumma Innaka ‘Afuwwun Kareemun tuhibbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annaa. Ameen.

    Remember all Muslims in your du’as 🙂

    POEM: My Travel Is Only To Allah

    In the Name of Allah
    The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
    An old poem I found
    from my beloved father’s laptop (May Allah the Almighty have mercy on both my loving parents and may Allah the Most Merciful reunite me and my loved ones with them in Firdaus/Heaven near Allah and His noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam by Allah’s Mercy. Ameen.)
    I believe this poem was written on Friday February 28, 2014

    Today I talked to Allah this Friday morn,
    Today I spoke to God, said my good du’as,
    By God’s Will and Mercy, this is His response,
    After reading the great Surat Al-Kahaf.

    I write these lines –about one eighty of them,
    Each line containing eleven syllables,
    About the sweet memories that I still have
    Of countries I’ve been to and places travelled.

    First, I was born in Saudi, MashaAllah –
    Saudi Arabia –the best country on earth.
    I’ve performed Hajj many times, MashaAllah –
    I’ve tons of memories here of joy and mirth.

    In Riyadh, I have studied at many schools,
    Have gone through many kinds of experiences,
    Have met nice people from different countries,
    Got along well despite our differences,

    Joined in some public radio and T.V. shows,
    Was in school clubs where I’d learn to speak on stage,
    At school I was known for my creative skills
    And for being among those who got high grades.

    More sweet memories Allah wants me to write:
    The funny looks I exchanged with my classmates
    Of various colors, from colorful countries –
    And with them the many games I used to play.

    My Saudi friends complimenting my writing,
    My British pal naming me ‘Bubblegum Girl’,
    My teachers commending me on my artwork,
    And soccer buddies scared when I’d have the ball –

    The beautiful views of the Ka’bah far-off,
    The wondrous moments of performing ‘Umrah,
    The many lessons learned when performing Hajj –
    Are among sweet memories MashaAllah!

    Now quick mentions of more countries I’ve been to:
    I remember Dad driving us, with his car,
    On a group journey, with many ‘Pinoy friends’,
    To Kuwait/Bahrain, exploring some tower.

     I recall the times we’d wait at some airports,
    In countries like Bangladesh, Greece and Oman,
    And in the country where many look alike,
    Where my Dad can blend in well –in cool Japan.

    I remember the clowns who gave us balloons,
    At some aquatic park, Sea World, in Hong Kong,
     In the aquarium various creatures we’ve seen,
    The tricks the whales and dolphins did without wrongs. 

    In Langkawi too I recall the visit
    We paid to a park called ‘Underwater World’,
    More sea creatures we’ve seen there, facts about them,
    And cool aquatic stuff that were being sold.

    In the capital city of Malaysia,
    I recall the times we’ve been to the towers,
    The visits to various parks, like Genting Park,
    And the funny monkeys chasing my brothers.

    And that time I took classes at a uni.
    Where my Mother was invited to lecture,
    How I got to know many Asian Muslims,
    Meeting one of them in Makkah thereafter.

    More memories on our trips to Malaysia:
    Visiting one of the sultans’ huge palace,
    The zoo, the bird park, and butterfly gardens,
    And the pools where my loved ones loved to relax.

    Now moving on to Singapore, I recall:
    The visits to the zoo and night safari,
    Various shopping malls, restaurants and hotels,
    And Sentosa Island –with my family.

    In Indonesia I recall our visit
    To a Muslim School –I think we’ve been there twice,
    I recall my brothers playing soccer there –
    And how sitting with the V.I.P.’s was… nice.

    At the masjid there, I recall admiring
    How the students would get up early to pray
    And then memorize Surahs from the Qur’an –
    And how this school was unique in many ways.

    Anyway, now moving on to Thailand, I
    Recall visiting some kind of museum,
    I recall how Thai Airways was so comfy,
    How I liked their outfits and decorations.

    More countries I’ve been to include Qatar… but
    We’ve only stayed at the airport, honestly,
    So another country I can mention is
    One that is also near Saudi: U.A.E.

    There we’ve been to Dubai and Abu Dhabi,
    We went to a park, many photos we took,
    Many malls we’ve been to, restaurants as well,
    And at many interesting things we’ve looked.

    I recall my parents meeting two friends there,
    Who helped us go sight-seeing in the city,
    We ate at a cool Japanese restaurant,
    And then at a Mid-Eastern one, I believe.

    Another place where my parents met two friends
    Is in the busy, cool city of London.
    With them we had a walk at a well-known park,
    And dined with them at an Indian restaurant,

    Where ‘tis funny how I still recall a teen’s
    Grimace after eating a dish so spicy –
    The walks we had around the wax museum,
    And how I thought the cab ride was so nifty.

    After that, we had some snacks –twin ice-cream cones,
    With Time Out or Flakes chocolate at the top –
    I recall more museums we’ve been to, there,
    And waiting at the double-decker bus stops.

    A bit near England is France –we’ve been there too,
    There, in Paris, we have been to Disneyland –
    We’ve also been to the one in the U.S.
    Where English lang. we were glad to understand.

    In the U.S. we’ve visited many parks,
    Among them Knott’s Berry Farm, Walt Disney World,
    J.K. Space Center, Universal Studios,
    And other places forgotten to be told.

    I do recall that time in Mississippi,
    Where we rode a boat, went to an aquarium,
    And that time we went to strange Mardi Gras World –
    Where we saw many masks and parade customs.

    Another place where we toured more museums
    And towers is Egypt, where we saw ‘Fir’awn’ –
    We’ve seen the pyramids and the so-called ‘Sphinx’,
    Have seen many views in that Egyptian town –

    I recall going up the Cairo Tower,
    And the many times my bros would buy a ball –
    Many balls they’d purchase and many they’d lose –
    Many sweet memories I can still recall…

    Like that ‘almost-one-month-vacation’ abroad
    In a milk-producing country called Denmark,
    We’ve stayed at the house of my Dad’s friend –‘tis strange
    How I still recall his name: ‘Eric Emborg’.

    I recall the times we rode on those buses
    To malls and stores we would go for grocery –
    Exchanging smiles with an Arab family
    And the fun times we’ve had at Park Tivoli.

    Many memories I have of our travels,
    And fortunately, they’re too many to list –
    I can gladly say that one’s joys in life could
    Be among the many kinds of Allah’s tests.

    So my answers to God’s tests are in these lines:
    Alhamdulillah, Praise is for God alone,
    I thank Allah for the good He’s given me,
    I pray God makes Heaven my Eternal Home,

    Near Him Allah and His Beloved Prophets,
    I pray that by Allah’s Mercy I’m near Him –
    For the tears I’ve shed for Allah’s sake, for my
    Du’as –begging God to forgive all my sins.

    My next answer is some advice to Muslims,
    Dear Muslims who bow down to Allah only,
    ‘Tis foolish to look at the lives of others
    Who foolishly care about sin and money.

    When it comes to worldly things, see those below…
    Look at those who can’t afford the things you have.
    Look at those who can’t do the good things you do –
    Pray for those who know not what ‘tis like to laugh.

    When it comes to faith, look at those near Allah,
    Strive to reach their level or do much better,
    They’ve memorized the Qur’an, prayed many times,
    Their goal is to succeed in the Hereafter.

    When non-Muslim ‘friends’ come to you to show off
    Their temporal pleasures and sad so-called ‘joys’,
    Pity their low self-esteem, high ignorance,
    If they don’t turn to God, in Hell they’ll enjoy…

    They will enjoy regretting how they were lost
    In their misguidance and in their daily sins,
    They’ll enjoy attaining the sins of Muslims
    While the Muslims enjoy God’s gifts in Heaven.

    And my next answer to Allah’s tests is this:
    Do not think that traveling in life is grand,
    Don’t think that if Allah gave others a chance
    To travel, Allah’s Love you misunderstand.

    Allah gave things to some people as a test,
    And prevented things from some –as a test too.
    Good times and bad times are among Allah’s tests,
    To see if your Faith/Iman is indeed True,

    So that those who mistreat you collect your sins,
    And if they’re Muslims, you collect their good deeds –
    This is why all acts of oppression must be
    Shunned, while in God Allah, we Muslims believe.

    And did you know, dear Muslims, that all of us
    Are travelers in this grand journey called ‘Life’?
    To reach the wanted destination, Heaven,
    Pack the right things, shun bad deeds that bring forth strife.

    So Allahu Akbar wherever we are,
    Our goal is to travel to Heaven only,
    To be near God Allah, be amongst His friends,
    Heaven by God’s Mercy is our destiny.

    Mariam M.

    Include all Muslims worldwide in your good du’as 🙂
    May Allah the Most Merciful accept all our good deeds, May Allah the Most Forgiving forgive all our sins, and May Allah the Almighty join us with His righteous friends in Firdaus/Heaven near Him and His beloved Messenger Muhammad sallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam. Ameen.
