The Heart’s Lament

Image

Is it really wrong to feel

Like you’re caught in between two extremes?

For the liberal fascist, unseen,

While for others, almost short of being queen!

Amongst family, misunderstood

Despite all the trials you withstood

To be where you are today,

Your conscience bright as day,

Not a soul can your mind sway,

Yet this battle won’t let you stay

Your soul is restless

The climb is making you breathless

The mountaintop is crystal clear

Your eyes begin to tear

Must struggle to overcome

All other senses numb

Soul reaches out to the One

Yet your work will not be done

Till prayer, sacrifice, living and dying all

Are solely for Allah, The Lord of the worlds.

 

Last two lines inspired by the Qur’anic Verse 162 from Chapter 6 (Al An’am)

The High Buildings of Madinah (Hadith No. 1597)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 30, Number 102:

Narrated Usama (radiallaahu `anhu):

Once the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) stood at the top of a (looked out from upon one) castle amongst the castles (or the high buildings) of Medina and said, “Do you see what I see? (No doubt) I see the spots where afflictions will take place among your houses (and these afflictions will be) as numerous as the spots where rain-drops fall.”

Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) foretold the innumerable trials and tribulations that were to come after him. This is one of the signs of his prophet-hood – his informing of the unseen (future), that of which he was given knowledge by Allah.

And indeed, the trials have been like the rain after his demise. May Allah save us from them.

Why did Imam Bukhari include this Hadith in the book of Virtues of Madinah? I found the answer when I read the chapter under which he mentions this Hadith: “The high buildings of Madinah”. :)
Who would’ve thought? SubhanAllah, the way he derived lessons and connections from the texts is amazing. May Allah grant us wisdom and knowledge as was given to him.
