The Forgotten Gift

Assalam u Alaikum!

So we’re starting a poetry section on this blog. I’m Omer Shahid, a student of BS in Mechanical Engineering from GIKI, and I would be running this page In sha Allah. I started writing poetry when I was in Class 7 and after that I never really payed any attention to it, lol. Until last summer, when I wrote a few poems and thought of writing a book but I didn’t have much support. But now, a month ago, I found out about this amazing organization Youth Club, whose purpose is to make this society a better place by inspiring positive change in the Youth of today. And I can confidently say they’re doing their job! Since EVERYONE there is so inspiring masha Allah and they push you to discover yourself and find what you’re good at, keeping religion as the main ingredient. So I had no choice but to become a member of YC, and now I’ve written many poems recently and would continue to do so insha Allah. =)

  4. Masha Allah brother.
    I read Mariam’s post first and replied to that.
    I’d always been a writer and in sheer love with words. very typical. I started poetry when i was 12. and then wrote a lot in my teens, they were pointless junk. probably amazing word usage but no logical reason for these.
    I left it altogether when i started learning about Deen, having read this Ayah about verses.
    still secretly lauded them and felt the guilt.
    but just realized that it can be used in a better positive way. I know it can be. I dont know how though.

    so, well. share your work?
    let it wake up our muses as well.


    • JazakAllah u khayr sister. Well that’s the purpose of this separate category insha Allah. We will be sharing our poetry here regularly, me and sis Mariam. And may Allah help us get the message of Islam to everyone through our words. Surely, poetry can be used for a better positve way.
