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)
In light of the on-going Violent protests…
True or not, I won’t judge your “Love”
But know that you’re being watched by the One above
At Fajr Salah you’re hardly awake
But doing violent protests is a piece of cake
Muhammad (SAW) was sent as a mercy to humanity
And we, we’ve crossed all bounds of insanity!
He respected the life and properties of others
Protecting the honor of daughters, sisters and mothers
We claim to love him, but how do we know if it’s real?
Since instead of following him, we break stuff and we steal!
Everyone got offended; every Muslim got hurt
Blasphemers are defended; at least our homes are burnt!!
Would Muhammad (SAW) love this? I wish we only knew
While not everyone, but it might stop a few
Who are busy sucking the blood of their own brothers dry!
“We WILL protest, whether you live or you die!??”
How is this love, if somebody is weeping?
Our minds are furious but our hearts are sleeping…
I wish we wake up and learn about him more
Before the time comes when on this earth we will be no more
And the angels come in our grave and ask “What do you know about this man?*”
And we start to stammer and try to answer what we can
And if your love was true, then you will surely reply
But if it was not, then know that you will cry
So it’s time to act NOW and KNOW about this Great Man!
Adopt his qualities, at least, whatever we can!
And Allah will surely love you, if you love his most beloved slave
From the torment of Hell, by His will, you will be saved
I wish people understand the true meaning of LOVE
Since obedience with sincerity, is the only thing that matters above…
*This is one of the three questions that would be asked in the Grave.
