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.

POEM: Regarding Those Who Are Incompatible

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
Recall your purpose in life, to please Allah,
To see our God, the Creator, in Jannah.
Because not all creation have the same goal,
With each one it makes sense you can’t get along.

So forget about those who rejected you,
Who betrayed and proved their friendship is not true.
No more stalking from now on those you don’t know,
Strangers who prefer to be by you unknown.

Haters are but critics who differ from us,
Too different from us, or just envious.
Your friends, even if few, are those who agree
To stand by you and join you in your journey.

If you’re sincere and aim to please Only God,
You won’t get on with clowns who live to show off.
If your self-esteem is high and ego low,
You’ll intimidate those who feel they’re below.

The truthful can’t get on with those who love lies.
The wise repel those who dislike real advice.
Beautiful souls scare those with evil inside.
Tough warriors are too strong for those who can’t fight.

Seldom would you see lions befriending snakes.
Never take offence when you’re ignored by fakes.
Move on to achieve your goals for Allah’s sake,
Even if you’re on your own towards God’s Way.

Around the world there are those who side with you,
Who do a lot of the good things that you do.
Unmet friends you may meet in Jannah someday.
Never alone, God is with us night and day.

POEM: Notes On Marriage Proposals

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
Lessons from my past to share for Allah’s sake,
Reasons why I rejected some proposals –
From one of them I disliked his baby-faced,
My ignorance back then was quite colossal,

He was to work in Madinah at that time,
I was at fault for judging him by his looks –
Thirteen years old then, needed loads of advice,
 Bulimic teen, rebellious, misunderstood.

Another proposal from a childhood friend,
Who similarly came to our house to meet,
Said no to his request which I now resent,
Simply because he was years younger than me.

My dear parents – Allah yarhamhum. Ameen.
Turned down another guy’s proposal for me,
In U.S. he worked while I stayed in Saudi,
Not seeming pious then, they thought he’d mislead.

At eighteen or so I made a big mistake
Of rejecting this man’s proposal wrongly.
To memorize the whole Qur’an he did aim,
From a good family, friends, Pakistani.

The silly reason why I denied again,
Was my assumption he was too soft and shy,
Blame if you like, I was ignorant back then,
I did many wrongs and couldn’t tell what’s right.

Later on Allah taught me about Islam,
Alhamdulillah through learning I was changed.
Value of marriage I loved to understand,
Noble traits like patience made me change my ways.

At twenty I was married to my cousin,
Our marriage though not perfect brought forth lessons.
At twenty-six or so I became first wife,
Loved my husband for Allah more than desires.

Tips regarding marriage proposals, to guide:
Pray the Istikhaarah prayer then decide.
To say yes or no it’s every woman’s right,
While recalling not to judge upon first sight.

Don’t do the wrongs I did. Do learn from mistakes.
On feeling attracted, choose the halal way,
Marry for Allah’s sake, complete your deen/faith,
Keep learning and applying Islam each day.

To parents or guardians of those who’ll marry:
Don’t expect perfection from anybody,
As you yourselves have flaws like everybody.
Don’t demand huge dowries. Make marriage easy.

In-laws don’t need to be from the same country,
Nor be the same socially / financially.
Beauty in diversity / large families.
Understand your kids, they’re the ones to marry.

Marriage is a blessed gift which Allah made
To unite souls who’ll exchange love lawfully,
A journey of loving lessons to God’s Way,
One of the means that strengthen spiritually.

POEM: May Our Marriage Motivate. Ameen.

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
Dear husband, more words of love for Allah’s sake,
You may not read these, but in Jannah someday,
With Allah’s Will you’ll know what I used to say,
How I truly felt, missing you night and day.

Though you may be wed to up to four I’ll stay,
Even though we don’t see each other always,
Although we’re both busy and you’re far away,
For God, as your first wife I choose to remain.

I’ve loved and love lots, my love for you is strange,
Eccentric yet magnetic in many ways.
I can’t divorce as it’s hard to separate,
Promised to stay loyal since I was engaged.

For you to marry up to four it’s okay,
Accountable for all the choices we make,
I choose to be patient with you for God’s sake,
Contentedly married to you come what may.

Dear husband, that Allah loves you I do pray,
For your success in both worlds I supplicate,
Pray our love reforms us and strengthens our faith,
May this connection inspire and motivate. Ameen.

POEM: A Prayer In Laylatul Qadr

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

Dear Allah the Most Kind, Most Just and Most Near,
Yet again I’m here, I call on You, in tears.
As I raise my hands facing down so humbly,
I pray: “Allahumma Innaka ‘Afuwwun Tuhebbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annee.”
Dear Allah Most Forgiving, forgive me please.

Dear Allah, I’m overwhelmed, stressed, tired and weak.
Your Mercy and Guidance O’ Allah I seek.
Allah, I miss my loved ones and family,
That I can’t take care of them all I’m sorry.
Please alleviate my struggles and worries.

I’m sorry I didn’t do much, Allah Dear,
Some bad traits of mine have not yet disappeared.
So beautify my character, guide me please,
Cause me to overcome obstacles with ease,
And make the Path to Jannah ever easy.

O’ Allah, for every moment, stay with me,
Enlighten through lessons and prophetic dreams.
Keep forgiving me when I slack frequently,
The Way to Your Love don’t allow me to leave.
Dear Allah, Only You I worship daily.

O’ Allah, please help Muslims worldwide in need,
Please fix our state as we bow to You Only.
With what You bestowed inspire us to be pleased,
That we see You in Paradise please decree,
Our good deeds accept, and our sins forgive, please.

Allahumma Innaka ‘Afuwwun Tuhebbul ‘afwa fa’fu ‘annee. Ameen.

POEM: Niqabis, wear niqab for Allah’s sake.

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
Niqabis, wear the niqaab for Allah’s sake,
Or the full face-veil to differentiate
Yourself as a Muslimah from those astray,
Not to feel superior, you wish to obey.
___________________
Stay modest as the *Prophet Muhammad’s wives,
Who were known to be clad in black when outside,
By their voices or style they were recognized,
Their gems and adornments, like true queens, they’d hide.
___________________
With the niqaab, no man needs to know your age,
No need for heavy make-up each night and day,
Judged not by looks, but by what you do and say,
A reminder for some to lower the gaze.
___________________
Fear Allah Almighty as much as you can,
When asked to unveil face for checkpoint reasons,
Find ways to comply without any problems.
Acts are rewarded based on their intentions.
___________________
While obeying God some struggles you may meet,
Be steadfast, in Jannah is real bliss and peace.
May Allah forgive us, accept our good deeds,
And allow us to see Him smiling. Ameen.

POEM: Similar Souls Likely Get Along

In The Name Of Allah
The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
    With Allah’s Will similar souls get along.
    Good souls click with the right, bad ones with the wrong.
    Those who share your goals in your circle belong,
    With your own team, not with all, you can get on.

    ____________
    So when you wonder why with this you both clicked,
    Your love increases with that each time you meet,
    While with others your likes and dislikes won’t fit,
    It’s because souls seek those not too different.

    ____________
    Never met them but I liked some instantly,
    Seeing them share gifts of knowledge lovingly.
    As for those few I loathe, yet I’ve known for years,
    Bad vibes they give out I don’t want to go near.

    ____________
    More likely to be friends with those more like you,
    If you’re truthful you’ll attract souls who are true,
    Liars and fakes won’t agree with what you do,
    With the deceitful you’ll more often dispute.

    ____________
    Your friends may define you, choose them carefully.
    May Allah Almighty grant ability
    To pick wisely – quality then quantity,
    Good companions who want Jannah too. Ameen.

    ____________

    Imam Al-Bukhari (may Allah have mercy on him) reported in his Sahih that ‘Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her) said: “I heard the Prophet Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wa sallam saying: ‘Souls are like conscripted soldiers; those whom they recognize, they get along with, and those whom they do not recognize, they will not get along with.’”
    (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Kitab Ahadith Al-Anbiyaa’).

    POEM: Forgive And Unite As One Ummah

    In the Name of Allah
    The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
      Love for Allah’s sake Muslims and family,
      Include each other’s names in du’as daily.
      True love is found in advising sincerely,
      Guiding to what’s right which brings serenity.

      ____________
      Don’t let vile pride stop you from understanding,
      Nor let arrogance keep you from forgiving.
      Prone to err and forget, as human beings,
      All have flaws and reasons for every doing.
      ____________
      Though improbable to get along with all,
      To stay polite with morals it’s possible.
      Put yourself in their shoes, understand their call,
      Recall no one’s perfect and impeccable.
      ____________
      Tips to not hate those whom you must love: Listen.
      Pay attention to their side. Learn expressions.
      List good times you had and when you needed them.
      Forgive like you would long to be forgiven.
       ____________
      Forgive for Allah’s sake the Most Merciful.
      Move on to meet relief and sleep whilst peaceful.
      Did you know, satan cheers when Muslims quarrel.
      Unite as one Ummah to win life’s battles.
      ____________

      Allah the Almighty said, “So know (O Muhammad – peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) that La ilaha ill-Allah (none has the right to be worshipped but Allah), and ask forgiveness for your sin, and also for (the sin of) believing men and believing women.” [The Noble Qur’an 47:19]

      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] 
        www.Islamqa.info/en/13783

        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.

        In the Name of Allah
        The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
          She loves God Allah first and foremost before her man,
          She loves her husband in ways Only God understands.
          She knows that to be his first wife is from Allah’s Plan,
          She’s his treasure, so she loves him as much as she can.
          💛
          He’s plain? In Jannah she knows he’ll be more good-looking.
          Not pious? She’s more than glad to teach him religion.
          They don’t talk always? In Jannah is their real meeting.
          Wed to two to four wives? It’s alright, she still loves him.
          💚
          She deserves better? She knows, yet she accepts God’s Will.
          He doesn’t see her enough? Jannah is Eternal.
          She loves him like she’s his gift from the Most Merciful,
          For God’s sake she loves, since the first time her love stays real.
          💛
          Aware of evil forces that try to split them up,
          Unwilling to comply with their desires, she still loves,
          She loves her husband stubbornly, though it may be tough,
          She won’t leave him to please their foes, thus she won’t give up.
          💚
          She’s a fighter in love, for Allah she loves truly.
          She loves her spouse till he departs this world peacefully,
          And if there’s a next one she’ll love him similarly –
          For now he’s her only man she loves so faithfully.
          💛
          When she loves, she loves for God, not just anybody.
          Her love life is a complex yet loving mystery,
          A puzzle to solve through sacrifice and poetry,
          A journey of lessons learned by those who love bravely.
          💚
          May our marriage be blessed by Allah the Almighty,
          May Allah Most Kind love us for our faith and good deeds,
          And for our striving May Allah fulfill our best dreams,
          May Allah prove all someday that it’s worth it. Ameen.
          💛
          Allah’s beloved 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 by whichever of its gates you wish.”

          POEM: Sharing Niqab Experience

          In the Name of Allah
          The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

            Alhamdulillah first time wearing niqab went well,
            It began as a dress code at a Saudi gov. school,
            Only when going outside to wear the complete veil.
            No problem with niqab back then save for some travels.

            I used to think niqab should be worn just in Saudi,
            My faith back then was not strong till Islam I studied.
            Back then I was conscious of wearing niqab fully,
            Was okay wearing it around many niqabis,

            But after research and advice from my dear parents,
            I’ve learned niqab is Wajib or at least encouraged.
            To remove niqab as Hajj pilgrims is evidence
            That niqab is Wajib, rewarding and important.

            Niqab is useful in a sense it prevents wrong gaze,
            It’s meant to promote modesty and strengthen one’s faith,
            To join those who strive to obey God’s Laws night and day,
            Distinguishing devout women from those led astray.

            Alhamdulillah I’m now a full-time niqaabi,
            Don’t mind if I’m the only one amongst hijabis.
            Not a big deal too if onlookers would stare at me.
            Another way of doing Da’wah indirectly.

            Negative reactions with niqab? Yes, a few times.
            ‘Aswang!’ or ‘Monster!’ I’ve been called once by a scared child,
            A few laughter here or there in public, day or night,
            Curious stares from those who see niqab for the first time.

            Even from some Muslim kids I’ve been asked ‘Why wear that?’
            My response: ‘I’m Muslim, faith stronger with the niqab.’
            I’ve been called ‘Ninja!’ by ignorant adults and brats,
            Their lack of travel and world knowledge I understand.

            Love niqab for Allah’s sake, dear niqabi sisters.
            All your sins are taken by each one of your mockers.
            Those who ridicule, think, they’ve never been travelers,
            They’re insecure, so through you they try to find laughter.

            Take pride in being of the ‘ghurabaa’ / strangers few,
            Humble to God, nice with likes, watchful of what you do,
            Adorned with manners and inner beauty that shines through,
            Praying you enter Jannah and Allah welcomes you.

            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.

            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.

              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.

                  POEM: One Good Reason Why I Still Love Him

                  In the Name of Allah
                  The Most Gracious The Most Merciful
                    Dear husband whom God sent as my other half,
                    My muse, my motivation and first true love –
                    A poem yet again though it’s not enough

                    To let all know why on you I gave up not.


                    Though there may be myriad reasons to dislike
                    You and how you may not fulfill all my rights,
                    There’s one good reason I’m still here day and night:
                    I love God more than myself and my desires.


                    I love you, husband, for Allah’s sake – it’s true.
                    Grateful for all the good deeds you used to do,
                    Not forgetful I’m a gift from God to you,
                    Your subtle love for me you don’t need to prove.


                    One good reason why I still love is patience,
                    Knowing your wrongs are due to interference,
                    Nosy involvement from those with aversion –
                    Won’t please my foes by choosing separation.

                    No worries, if God Wills, in Jannah we’ll meet.
                    Jannah Paradise is where bliss is really,
                    Eternal perfection without fakery,
                    Real home of the righteous, steadfast and sincere.

                    One reason I share my story is to teach
                    And motivate all to embrace loyalty,
                    Which lets you see when neglect is forced or real,
                    And keeps you vigilant of spies who envy.

                    May Allah the Almighty and Most Loving
                    Accept our good deeds and forgive all our sins.
                    Ameen. May Allah make us of those destined
                    To meet Him in Jannah smilingly. Ameen.

                    True love for Allah’s sake does not give up easily~

                    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.

                    Always think of Allah before anything.

                    POEM: My Niqab Story And The Benefits Of Wearing Niqaab

                    In The Name Of Allah
                    The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

                    Quick story to share with you for Allah’s sake
                    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.

                    SONNET: What Past Friendships Can Teach Us

                    In The Name Of Allah
                    The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

                    As I pass by old friends’ profiles online –
                    Some secrets divulge and I realize:
                    Some friends move on as their paths change with time,
                    Others misguided by their loathsome pride.
                    🔸🔶🔸🔶🔸
                    “Friends” who quickly leave never meant to stay;
                    True friends stick by you though they’re miles away.
                    Through some lost friendships Allah wants you safe –
                    From bad influence or sins that remain.
                    🔸🔶🔸🔶🔸
                    As people change, ensure you do what’s right,
                    Stay on the Straight Way towards Allah’s Light.
                    With sinful friends don’t be preoccupied,
                    With dignity walk away from their lies.
                    🔸🔶🔸🔶🔸
                    To long-lost friends: Though not close here I’ll be,
                    Willing to forgive and guide with mercy.

                    To Stay Friends Or Walk Away From Certain People
                    www.islamqa.info/en/106441

                    5 Reasons why some people may no longer 
                    connect with each other:
                    1] Misunderstanding on one or both sides which was not settled properly, due to arrogance or inability to understand each other’s point of view.
                    2] Deliberate lack of interest or communication between the two parties, either because of too many differences or doubting that the other may not accept them as friends.
                    3] When one is right and the other wrong, when one has become religious and the other is still addicted to certain sins, when one is humble and the other arrogant – good usually cannot get along with what is bad.
                    4] Change of ways, goals and interests – when you can’t find each other agreeing on the same thing it may be difficult to click and bond.
                    5] Forgetfulness – the person you try to reconnect with on facebook may have forgotten who you are but should you ever meet again Insha-Allah personally they may befriend you like they did before.


                    Why Allah is The Only True Friend whose Love and Friendship we can share:
                    Allah the Most Forgiving readily forgives you so long as you constantly return to Him. No matter where you are, what time it is and what mood you’re in, Allah the All-Knowing is always there to listen to you and grant you solutions with wisdom. Unlike some people who get tired of too many requests, Allah loves you more as you cry to Him more, talk to Him more often and say your du’as.

                    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.
