A Poem About Hijab

What do you see when you look at me?
Do you see someone opressed, or someone free?
All some people can do is look and stare,
Simply because they can't see my hair.

Others think i'm controlled and un-educated,
They think i'm limited and un-liberated.
They are so thankful that they are not me,
Because they would like to remain "free".

"Free" isn't exactly the word I would have used,
Describing women who are cheated on and abused.
Us hooded girls are the ones who are free and liberated,
We are not the ones sexually terrorized and violated.
We are the ones who are free and pure,
We're free of STD's that have no cure.

They think I do not have opinions or voice,
They think that being hooded isn't my choice.
They think that the hood makes me look caged,
That I must be completely outraged.

All they can do is look at me in fear,
And in my eye there is a tear.
Not because I have been stared at or made fun of,
But because they are forgetting the One up above.

Maybe the guys won't think i'm a cutie,
But atleast i'm filled with more inner beauty.
Real men are able to appriciate my mind,
And aren't busy looking at my behind.

Hooded girls are helping the Muslim cause,
The role we play definately deserves an applause.
I will be recognized because I am smart and bright,
I'd rather show off my brain than show off my sight.

We have the strength to do what we think is right,
Even if it means putting up a life long fight.
We are not controlled by a mini-skirt or tight shirt,
We demand respect and refuse to be treated like dirt.

So when people ask you how you feel about the hood,
Just sum it up by saying; Baby, it's all good.

I am A Muslim

I am a Muslim
And God I praise
For all His blessings
My voice I raise
In one God I believe
No equal has He
Lord of the universe
Compassionate to me
Muhammad the prophet
Taught me the way
To be honest and truthful
Throughout every day
The holy Qur'an
To life is my guide
It's teachings I follow
By it I abide
Islam my religion
Preaches good deeds
Mercy and kindness
To the right path it leads
Upon all humanity
God showers His grace
Regardless of colour
Nationality or race
Through working together
Our hopes increase
To live in a world
Full of love and peace
I am a Muslim
And God I praise
For all His blessings
My voice I raise

He Is Allah

He is Allah, The One.
The Brightest of all Lights.
His Great Throne Extends overs the Heavens and the Earth.
To Him belongs everything that came to be,
To Him belongs everything that is to be.
He is the Great Controller over all things.
Surely He is The True Judge,
Who Favours the True Believer.

He is Allah, The Most Beneficient.
He Knows All That is Hidden,
He knows All that is Manifest.
Nothing Can ever Escape Him.
And in your hour of grief,
Look to the Lord, His Grace,
For He examines your patience,
So for a short while, kindly endure.
Surely The Merciful has Promised you A Great Reward.
Indeed Allah Acknowledges all things.

He is Allah, The Most Merciful.
He Gives life and causes death.
And as for him who denied the Lord, Almighty,
He will surely come to know.
And as for him who ascribed partners with the Lord,
He will surely come to know.
And by The Last Day,
All will be Revealed and Islam will Succeed therein.
And Allahs' Doors of Mercy will close.

He is Allah Subhaana Wa Ta'aala,
Who has Knowledge over All Things.
For He Created The Heavens and The Earth,
And He Will Destroy Them As He Wills.
He is Allah Subhaana Wa Ta'aala,
The One, The Only One.

Our Future

We tend to plan for our future everyday,
Desperately we try to pave the way.
We save every little bit of money we can find,
And to the people who can help us achieve we are kind.
If there is something we want then we're willing to fight,
For a future filled with happiness that is oh so bright.
It is unfortunate though, to fill everyone's hearts with sorrow,
But remember dear Muslims our future is not tomorrow.
It is not money or fame that will get us ahead,
But the number of times we worship God before bed.
That is what will make our future unimaginably great,
So let us wake up and take control of our fate.
Tomorrow is not the future you should be planning for,
But the day you will be standing before Allah's door.
The day where we will be reminded of every last deed,
Like the day you forgot the poor because of your greed.
And what dear Muslim shall you say,
When Allah asks you why you didn't pray?
No excuse will be enough,
To get out of the hellfire that will be so rough.
So let us pray, worship and keep the poor fed,
For our future begins once we are all dead.

 
Last Breath

From those around, I hear a cry,
A muffled sob, a hopeless sigh.
I hear their footsteps leaving slow,
And then I now my soul must fly.
A chilly wind, begins to blow,
Within my soul, from head to toe.
And then, last breath escapes my lips,
It's time to leave, and I must go.

The past comes out, infront of your eyes,
Your heart beats slow as your brain dies.
The excruciating pain increases to,
As you remember your life, and what you use to do.
The girls you touched, the drugs you smoked,
The feeling of glee when your brother nearly choked.
You feel regret that you never took the time to pray,
And to remember Allah, each and every day.

So it is true, but it's too late,
They say each soul has it's given date.
When it must leave it's body's core,
And meet with it's eternal fate.
Oh mark the words that I do say,
Who knows? Tomorrow could be your day.
At last it comes to Heaven or Hell,
Decide which now, do not delay.
Come on my brothers and sisters, let us pray,
Decide which now, do not delay.

Now your all alone, nobody by your side,
The fires of hell will engulf you like a tide.
Many times your mother told you to get up and pray,
But you'd ignore her and turn away.
Lived your life as a kafir(disbeliever), now your dying as one,
I'm afraid of the world, what has it become?
Afraid of that day, the everlasting one.

Oh God, I cannot see,
My eyes are blind, am I still me?
Or has my soul been led astray,
And forced to pay a priceless fee?
To dust we'll all return,
Some shall rejoice, while others burn.
If only I knew that before,
The line grew short, and came my turn.
And now, as beneath the sod,
They lay me with my record flawed.
They cry, not knowing I cry worse,
For they go home, and I face God.

My last words will recite the Kalma as I die,
Feelings of sorrow, as I must say my last goodbye.
I fear what fate has got destined for me,
The punishement of the grave is still a minor story.
My brothers and sisters, you dont know your fate,
Being born as a Muslim, you've got it on the plate.
Take advantage of this, and excel all you can,
Be a good Muslim woman or man.
Religion comes first, Allah knows best,
Follow His plan.

Oh mark the words that I do say,
Who knows? Tomorrow could be your day.
At last it comes to Heaven or Hell,
Decide which now, do not delay.
Come on my brothers and sisters, let us pray,
Decide which now, do not delay.

You only live this life once, and this life is only a test,
Eventually every soul must taste death.
I'm leaving life now, as I take my last breath...

Eternal Ink

I dreamt I was in heaven,
Where an angel kept God's book.
The angel was writing so intently,
I just had to take a look.

It was not, at first, the writing,
That made me stop and think.
But the fluid in the bottle.
That was marked "Eternal Ink".

This ink was most amazing,
Dark-black upon the blotter.
But as it touched the parchment,
It became as clear as water.

The angel kept on writing,
But as quickly as a wink.
The words were disappearing,
With that strange Eternal Ink.

The angel took no notice,
But kept writing on and on.
Turning each page and filling them,
Till all the space was gone.

I thought the angel wrote to no avail,
The efforts were so vain.
For written were many pages,
That would never be read again.

As I watched and wondered,
That this awesome sight was mine.
I actually saw a word stay black,
As it dried upon the line.

The angel kept on writing,
And I saw a look of satisfaction.
At last there was some print to show,
For all the earnest action.

A line or two dried dark,
And stayed as black as black can be.
But strangely the next paragraph,
Became invisible to see.

The Book was getting fuller,
The angel's records true.
But most of it was blank,
With just few words coming through.

I knew there was some reason,
But as hard as I could think.
I couldn't grasp the significance,
Of that Eternal Ink.

The mystery burned within me,
And I finally dared to ask.
The angel to explain to me,
Of the amazing task.

And what I heard was frightful,
As turned the angel's head.
Looking directly at me,
The angel eventually said:

"I know you stand and wonder,
At what my writing's worth.
But Allah has told me to record,
The lives of those on earth.

The Book that I am filling,
Is an accurate account.
Of every word and action,
And to what they do amount.

And since you've been watching,
I must tell you what is true.
The details of my journal,
Are the strict accounts of you.

Allah asked me to watch you,
As each day you work and play.
I see you as you visit the Mosque,
I see you as you pray.

But I was told to document,
Your life through all the week.
I wrote when you were arrogant,
I wrote when you were meek.

I recorded all your attitudes,
Whether they were good or bad.
I was sorry that I had to write,
The things that make Allah sad.

So now I will tell the wonder,
Of this Eternal Ink.
As the reason for its mystery,
Should make you stop and think.

This Ink that Allah created,
To help me keep my journal.
Will only keep a record,
Of things that are Eternal.

So much of life is wasted,
On things that matter not.
Far from all the searching,
Of knowledge to be sought.

I just keep writing faithfully,
And let the Ink do the rest.
For it is able to decide,
What's useless and what is best.

And Allah ordained that as I write,
Of all you do and say.
Your deeds that count for nothing,
Will just disappear away.

When Books are opened someday,
As sure as Heaven is true.
Allah's Eternal Ink,
Will tell what mattered to you.

If you just lived to please yourself,
The pages will be bare.
And Allah will issue no reward for you,
When you get there.

In fact, you'll be embarrassed,
You'll hang your head in shame.
Because you did not give yourself,
In love to Allah's Name.

Yet maybe there will be a few,
Recorded lines that stayed.
Showing times you truly cared,
Sincerely loved and prayed.

But you will always wonder,
As you enter Heaven's door.
How much more glad you would be,
if only you had done more.

For I record as Allah sees,
I don't stop to even think.
Because the truth is always written,
With Allah's Eternal Ink.

As I heard the angel's story,
I fell down and wept and cried.
For as yet I still was dreaming,
I hadn't actually died.

I said: "Oh angel, tell Allah,
That as soon as I awake.
I'll live my life for Allah,
I'll do all for His sake.

I'll give in full surrender,
I'll do all He wants me to.
I'll turn my back on self and sin,
And whatever isn't true.

Though the way seems long and rough,
I promise to endure.
I'm determined to pursue the things,
That are Holy, Clean and Pure.

With Allah as my Helper,
I will win lost souls to thee.
For I know they'll live with Allah,
For all eternity.

And that's what really matters,
When my life on earth is gone.
That I will stand before Allah,
And hear Him say: Well Done.

For is it really worth it,
As my life lies at the brink?
And I realize Allah keeps Books,
With His Eternal Ink.

Should all my life be focused,
On things that turn to dust?
From now on I'll serve Allah,
I can - I will - I must!

I'm giving all to Allah,
I now have seen the link.
I saw an angel write my life,
With Allah's Eternal Ink.

So don't you see? I'm truly free. This piece of scarf on me, I wear so proudly. To preserve my dignity, my modesty, my integrity. So don't judge me.

Whispers of Shaytan
 
Stay in your bed, don’t make a fuss.
Your prayers can wait, give in to your nafs.

What! Go to the mosque, the path you’ll pave?
Don’t bother, think of the gas you’ll save.

Why go the extra miles to be kind?
Don’t share that smile, they won’t mind

Listen to your parents, why should you?
You’re big enough, don’t let them tell you what to do!

Don’t look at those orphans, what could they need?
You have your own problems, and family to feed.

Wear good hijab? Oh me, Oh my, you’ll be targeted as a Muslim and put to shame.
Just wear no makeup, and dress simple and plain.

Go for Jihad? No not you.
It’s not your problem, what can you do?

Don’t worry about Jannah, your place is reserved.
I promise you’ll get all you deserve.

Preach about Islam, and be nice?
Listen to me, and take my advice!!!

Don’t fast during Ramadan, you’ll feel dead.
Don’t go for Hajj, the heat you’ll dread.

Why give charity, or feed the poor?
Don’t do it I say, They’ll just ask for more.

Don’t visit the Muslims, they’ll bite your back.
Don’t stop your work for prayer, it’s money you lack.

Then he makes you hoard your wealth.
He thinks while he talks, and laughs to himself.

You take me as your friend, and don’t give me a fight.
I’ll take you to hell to gain respite.

On the judgement day we will meet.
Allah’s plan we can not defeat.

Shaytan thinks and thinks of more to say.
Say A’ oothoo billahi, and make him run away.

Dear believer, don’t let shaytan put you to the test.
You can overcome him, just do your best.

Choice
 
I see you doing wrong, 
You say you're not so strong, 
To fight against shaytan. 
Your evil desires drag you along. 
Mankind and jinn have one thing in common. 
They differ from Allah's other creation. 
The animals, trees, birds, bees and everything existing, 
fallow Allah's decree. 
As people you and I should agree, 
That we all have the ability ,to choose. 
Allah show us right. 
Allah shows us wrong. 
He gives us a brain, a mind. 
Now its up to us to choose, 
what we have to do. 
If we choose to do right, 
Allah will give us guidance, 
And bring us into the light. 
He would grant us everlasting paradise and delight. 
If we chose to do wrong, 
Evil will turn us down a road of darkness ,confusion, and frustration. 
A road that leads to a terrible destination. 
The fires of hell are wicked and mercyless. 
Only you could put your self in this. 
The choices you make, 
The things you choose, 
must not be taken lightly, must not be abused. 
Everyday every hour every minute of your life, You're making choices. 
What will I wear? 
What will I say? 
Should I say anything? 
Should I sit here? 
Or talk to them? 
Or eat this? 
Or buy that? 
Allah will ask us: what did we sing,learn,watch,say and do? 
"Why did you lie?" "Why did you curse?"
"Why did you wear that tight skirt and shirt?" 
Did Allah not give you all all that you need? 
So that you must commit sins and bad deeds? 
There is no excuse for the evil you do. 
Do not talk foolishness when you know the truth. 
You cannot lie to Allah. 
He knows all that you do. 
If you love Allah fully and true, 
Try your up most to please him, 
and pray for him to be pleased with you.

I wonder
 
The Muezzin calls the adhan
But no one pays heed.
I wonder...
Is it the people whose hearts have grown cold
Or is it the muezzin whose voice holds no emotion?

The imam recites the khutbah
But the mosque is almost empty.
I wonder...
Is it the people who are too concerned with their worldly lives
Or is it the Imam who does not care about the people's lives?

We all criticize the "Muslim Ummah"
But I wonder...
Who are we criticizing, if not ourselves?

Purpose of  Life
 
Why is it that when we ask anyone from any country Why we eat, that they all give the answer : We eat to survive, in one word or another they will all give you the same answer  but why is it when you ask anyone from any country what is the purpose of life, that we get so many different answers?
Because people are confused and don't know. But If you ask a religeous muslim the purpose of life The will all give you one answer in one work or another, To pass Allah's test and enter Janna (heaven), to atain Allah's pardon and forgivness.
 
 

5 Pillars of Islam

Islam is built on five pillars. These acts are obligatory on every Muslim adult. Some are done daily, monthly, anually, while one is only required once in a lifetime.

1) Witnessing ~ Shahadah

To do this one must simply state publicly "Ashadu alla ilaha illa Allah, wa ashadu anna Muhammed ar-rasool Allah".

This means, "I bear witness that there is no God other than Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammed is His messanger."

It should be a genuine belief from one's heart. The witnessing of the Oneness of Allah is the rejection of any form of deity other than Allah, and the witnessing that Muhammad is His Messenger is the acceptance of him being chosen by Allah to convey His message of Islam to all humanity and to deliver it from the darkness of ignorance into the light of belief in, and knowledge of, the Creator. 

2) Prayer ~ Salat

In prayer, every muscle and bone of the body joins the soul and the mind in the worship and glory of Allah(swt).

Offering of prayers is obligatory upon every Muslim who is sane, mature and in the case of women; free from menstruation and confinement due to child birth. Some requirements must be met in order for the prayer to be valid. These include but are not limited to:

  • Performing wudu - ritually cleaning the body for prayer
  • Clothing - one must be covered in the manner according to his gender
  • Facing the Ka'ba - (refered to as the Qibla)
  • Intention - merely saying in your mind that you are attempting to pray and gain the benifits from it


Prayers are required at least five times a day. Other obligatory prayer include the Friday congregational prayer, Eid prayers and the funeral prayer. Times of the five daily obligatory prayers:

   1. Fajr ~ Before sunrise 
   2. Zuhr ~ After the sun begins to decline
   3. Asr ~ Mid afternoon
   4. Magrib ~ Just after sunset 
   5. Isha ~ night 

In addition one is also encouraged but not required to perform prayers during the day and night. Prayer should be offered in its due time, unless there is a reasonable excuse. Delayed obligatory prayers must be made up. In addition to the prescribed prayer, a Muslim expresses gratitude to God and appreciation of His favours and asks for His mercy all the time. Especially at times of childbirth, marriage, going to or rising from bed, leaving and returning to his home, starting a journey or entering a city, riding or driving, before or after eating or drinking, harvesting, visiting graveyards and at time of distress and sickness. 
  
3) Charity ~ Zakah

Obligatory charity giving is an act of worship and spiritual investment. Zakah does not only purify the property of the contributor but also purifies his heart from selfishness and greed. It also purifies the heart of the recipient from envy and jealousy, from hatred and uneasiness and it fosters instead good-will and warm wishes for the contributors. It also frees society from welfare, distrust and coruption. Zakah is paid on the net balance after paying personal expenses, family expenses, due credits, taxes, etc. Taxes paid to government do not substitute for this religious duty. The contributor should not seek pride or fame but if disclosing his name and his contribution is likely to encourage others, it is acceptable to do so.

The recipients of Zakah are:

- the poor, the needy
- the new Muslim converts
- the Muslim prisoners of war (to liberate them)
- Muslims in debt
- employees appointed to collect Zakah
- Muslims in service of research or study of Islam
- wayfarers who are foreigners in need of help 

Note that Zakah is obligatory. Muslims can also go above and beyond what they pay as Zakah, in which case the offering is strictly voluntary (blessing will come to those who wish for his brother what he wishes for himself). 

4) Fasting ~ Sawm

Fasting is abstaining completely from eating, drinking, and intimate sexual contacts from the break of dawn till sunset. It is a matchless Islamic institution which teaches man the principle of sincere love to God, creative sense of hope, devotion, patience, unselfishness, discipline, etc. Obligatory fasting is done once a year for the period of the month of Ramadan. Fasting during this time is obligatory on every muslim adult if he is mentally and physically fit and not on a journey. Women are allowed to skip fasting during menstruation, and while nursing a baby. 

5) Pilgrimage ~ Hajj

It is obligatory to make the pilgrimage to Mecca, at least once in a lifetime. Muslims from all walks of life, from every corner of the globe assemble in Mecca in response to the call of Allah. It is to commemorate the Divine rituals observed by the Prophet Abraham and his son Ishmael, who were the first pilgrims to the house of Allah on earth: the Ka'bah. It is also to remember the great assembly of the Day of Judgement when people will stand equal before Allah. Muslims go to Mecca to glorify Allah, to worship but Allah. The visit to the tomb of Prophet Muhammad at Madena is highly recommended but not essential in making the Hajj valid and complete.
