HABAGATNONG HINAGAWHAW: Mabaw

Kanang mabaw gyod ayaw pugsag palalom – samot kalubog! Batang badlongon kon sige nga buyagon samot mogarà. Ayaw nag tagda tiguwang nagbinatà – mahayblad ra ka. Iampò na lang nga untà hinglamdagan, iampò na lang. Eric S.B. Libre 26 Hunyo 2018

LATE BLOOMS: Narrow-Minded Me

Yes, I may be narrow-minded as you say if that’s what you see. Refusing to see things the way you say should be, the way that you see. I should be open to the changes happening as times are changing. There’s no resisting the winds of change a-blowing, that’s what you’re saying. I want change […]

POEM: On The Muslim Ummah’s State

In the Name of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

    Say “HasbunAllah wa Ni’m Al-Wakeel”, Allah knows
    All events that take place and mishaps caused by His foes.
    Allah saw what happened in Syria and Palestine,
    Rohingya, Burma, Iraq – to all innocent lives.

    Negative news of Muslims may be a wake-up call,
    For all Muslims to unite as oppression befalls,
    A search for peaceful warriors who’ll stand by the oppressed,
    Through charity and speaking out against injustice.

    To criminals: “What goes around comes around” please note,
    If justice is not served on earth then in the next world.
    Don’t do unto others what you don’t want done to you.
    Peace can be achieved though we vary in what we do.

    To oppressors: Don’t let your pride get the best of you.
    Evil has its consequences. God’s Justice is True.
    It’s possible to attain peace without greed and wars,
    If you listen to all sides, support truth, not liars.


    To Muslims: Forgive each other, show Islam is peace,
    Practice what you preach, share your knowledge out of mercy.
    Through certain trials Allah takes martyrs, sins fall off,
    Islam promoted, Muslims tested on faith and love.

    To non-Muslims: Please study Islam. Don’t just assume.
    As Muslims, we’re discouraged from violence and feuds.
    We’re taught to teach Islam kindly, not spread it by force,
    To make things easy through good manners, not make things worse.

    May Allah accept our faith that God is Only One,
    Who witnessed all that took place, what has been said and done,
    May Allah welcome us in Jannah for our good deeds,
    And may Allah prove all that Islam is Peace. Ameen.

    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.

    POEM: These Tears That Fall May They Intercede

    In the Name of Allah
    The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

      ‘Allahu Akbar’ state these tears that fall,
      These tears that drizzle when to God I call,
      Talk to Allah with various emotions,
      Du’as depend on each situation.
      ~.~
      Tears that fall as I miss my dear parents,
      When I miss my husband, loved ones and friends,
      Remorseful of good deeds I neglected,
      By the Ummah’s current state dejected,
      ~.~
      I cry when I long to help but just can’t,
      When to Allah I return and repent,
      Seeking Allah’s Guidance, Love and Mercy,
      Mentioning Muslims in prayers daily.
      ~.~
      These tears fall too when sinners I pity,
      How they can afford to steal or mistreat,
      When Allah Almighty knows what they do,
      Knowing Allah’s Justice is swift and true.
      ~.~
      May Allah Most High forgive us always,
      Accept all our good deeds done for His sake,
      Make our tears among those that intercede
      To let us meet God in Jannah. Ameen.
      ~.~
      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: Allah Sees What Tyrants Do

      In the Name of Allah
      The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
      Allahu Akbar. Allah knows all things.
      Allah sees each one and knows how each thinks.
      Don’t fret over why evildoers sin,
      To Hell those vile folks may have been destined.
      ~.~
      Allah knows liars when they trick and lie,
      How snakes try to separate man and wife,
      Why hypocrites pretend, whom fakes misguide,
      And where the ungrateful will soon abide.
      ~.~
      Allah sees all tyrants, those who deceive,
      Those who break promises, steal and mistreat,
      Who try to take people’s lands unjustly,
      Who from them may change ways eventually.
      ~.~
      Recall Fir’awn and what happened to him.
      Shaytan vowed his followers should not win.

      All will Inn-sha-Allah receive their rewards justly if not in this world then on Judgment Day~ 
      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.

      POEM: The Adult Orphan Cries Too

      In The Name Of Allah
      The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


      On behalf of dear Muslims whose parents died,
      Who lost a parent, their mom, their dad, or two –
      As well as those who never saw their parents,
      With truth I say, ‘The adult orphan cries too.’
      Not a day goes by without me recalling
      Sweet memories of my life spent with my folks.
      Each time I speak to Allah I remember
      My parents, and warm tears would begin to flow.
      I miss the great dishes my dear Mom would cook,
      And clothes she creatively sew now and then.
      I miss my Dad’s speeches and wise advice, and
      His wonderful car drives. I miss both of them.
      Delivering their food as they reached old age,
      Washing their clothes when I could – I miss that too.
      I miss obeying them whilst they were alive,
      Exchanging hugs, and telling them, “I love you.”
      Allah took them by His Mercy, they’re gone now
      But in my thoughts and du’as they’ll always stay.
      To continue loving them: I’ll share their words,
      Do charity, when I can, on their behalf,
       And treat well their relatives and friends they love.
      Always I’ll supplicate for my dear parents
      ‘Till we meet again, next to Allah above.
      I’ve learned how to sympathize with orphans more,
      Ever since my loving parents passed away.
      Tears of various feelings flow more than before,
      With Allah’s Kindness, to have all sins erased.
      Why do most good people struggle? One might ask.
      One must take note that life is all kinds of tests.
      Some problems train patience, others teach lessons,
      And most lead to repentance or humbleness.
      True peace and happiness are found in Heaven,
      For Allah’s friends who worship Him sincerely.
      Be with those whom Allah loves. Stick to Islam,
      Though the believers may not be that many.
      To those whose folks are living – you are lucky,
      And those with one parent, you’re fortunate too.
      Take care of them, help them do good deeds, give them
      More love, before Allah Wills that they leave you.
      May Allah Almighty forgive all our sins,
      Accept all our good deeds, and reunite us –
      May Allah unite us with our loved ones in
      Jannatul Firdaus, amongst friends Allah loves.
      Ameen.

      POEM: Make Your Husband Grateful For A Great Wife

      In The Name Of Allah
      The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
      It was narrated that Allah’s Noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said, “If a woman offers her five daily prayers, fasts her month (Ramadan), guards her modesty and obeys her husband, it will be said to her: Enter Paradise from whichever of the Gates of Paradise you wish.”
      Al-Albaani in Takhreej Al-Mishkaat (3254 IslamQA)
      To sisters in Islam I’ve spoken to,
      Who cried to me about their husbands’ faults,
      Wondering why and how my love stays true –
      How I love my husband despite his flaws:

      Since my engagement, loyalty I knew –
      From our blissful marriage, love developed.
      Thankful for my man’s gifts, though they seem few.
      As his other half, him I understood.

      Pleased with whom Allah gave me as a trust,
      We need not pretentiousness to show love –
      That Allah blessed our marriage ’tis enough,
      Allah is Witness to our special bond.

      Marriage is a pact between man and wife,
      Where one or both perfect each other’s life.
      Though he’s not flawless, like no being is,
      For Allah I love him, so I forgive.

      Divorce: despicable, loved by God’s foes –
      Avoid all things that make the jealous smile.
      Be his gem and lantern who shines and glows,
      Make your husband grateful for a great wife.
      Love your husband from the time you’re his wife until Allah takes him away. For your next spouse, be loyal likewise and do the same. Otherwise, wait until you reunite with your spouse in Heaven or there have him replaced by a better reward from Allah for taking care of your marriage for Allah’s sake 🙂 Whatever is the case, don’t leave the one you promised to love,
      even if it’s allowed, divorce is something which Allah hates.

      Allah Almighty knows best.
      Wasalaam~
