The One Who Was and Will Always Be

I wonder when I look above

With a sigh of love

At the starry sky, with tears of joy

When will this life come to an end?

For I can’t wait and I want to see

The ONE who was and will always be

Night Sky


It’s true this life does have a reason

But the world for me is still a prison

So no wonder what I have in here

That void inside will always be

For I can’t wait and I want to see

The ONE who was and will always be


I try to avoid it but I end up sinning

My heart feels heavy and my head starts spinning

If this is the pain I feel in this world

Then how harsh would the hell fire be

The thought of it makes me hate myself

But despair of HIS mercy I’ll never be

For I can’t wait and I want to see

The ONE who was and will always be


So I turn to HIM, put my head on the ground

My lost soul as if suddenly found

His remembrance puts my heart at peace

And brings a happy thought to mind

If this is the satisfaction of this world

How much pleasure one would in the Heaven find?

And then I can’t wait and I want to see

The ONE who was and will always be

Your Real Job As A Muslim (Hadith No. 451)


Read this Hadith, and carefully!

Volume 1, Book 8, Number 451:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet sent some horsemen to Najd and they brought a man called Thumama bin Uthal from Bani Hanifa. They fastened him to one of the pillars of the mosque. The Prophet came and ordered them to release him. He went to a (garden of) date-palms near the mosque, took a bath and entered the mosque again and said, “None has the right to be worshipped but Allah an Muhammad is His Apostle (i.e. he embraced Islam).”

Background: Thumama was a captive. When an enemy is captured, you can basically do anything you want with them. Companions had intended to teach him a lesson, at least. So they tied him up to one of the pillars of the mosque. But Prophet (SAW) released him despite having the upper hand. Seems crazy apparently. But the results prove otherwise.

Seeing Prophet (SAW) character, Thumama accepted Islam. Yes, character was the only reason.

O you who claim to follow the Prophet (SAW), your real job as a Muslim is to BE the best Muslim. Be the best father, the best brother, the best husband, leader, Imaam etc. in light of the Seerah of Muhammad (SAW). When you’re playing your part, you’re automatically inviting people to Islam. This, brothers and sisters, is called silent Da’wah. We all need to get better at this inshaAllah.

Reminds me of a recent talk Nouman Ali Khan gave stressing on the same point:

Ready to be the best? Take out a book on Seerah and start reading!
(Personal favorite is: Muhammad (SAW) his life based on the earliest sources by Martin Lings)
