My Final Fate

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

Today's post is inspired by a talk I did today at my college. It was on Qadr of Allah. I used a poem in this talk which I would like to share, once again if you hate my poems or poems in general please wait for my next post which will be actual writing! And I would like to add any feedback is welcome! JazakAllahu Khairan.

My Final Fate

Alhamdulilahir Rabeel Alameen
Ar Rahmaneer Rahim
If you believe in eternity
Don't set stone in half cement
Do you accept what has went?

A mercy that
Looks across the widest shores
Look for the lost seamen
Do you see them?

It was, A Decree- The
Call for help in a echoless cave
With bats for company
Sitting beside your grave
Were you betrayed?

Tawhid, inevitably, in What
Then
Did you reflect the moons light
On the shore
To cause the hurricane to
blow the wind in your hand

Did you do what you set out to do?
Is your belief still in stone
Or has it grown

Do you know of a lion?
If you do please
Inform the lion that there is a bigger roar
Than his.
Severe it is.
Please tell
The ant that his house will break.
Under His wrath,shall he take
The wealthy that they will be bankrupt
The vain that their looks will fade

Dont forget
The good. will receive its dues
And nothing will be set without
The tide  setting
The sun  rising

The moon shining
Allahu Akbar

And Allah'sQadr
Is in this All
Forget, what you see
Belief in the Almighty

Has changed the book
Your writing
The pen
Is dried

So let it be sublime
From Al Jalil
And be guided to Siratul Mustaqeen
Faith: it be in your life.
Alhamdulilahir Rabeel Allameen

My, My, My Mannequin in The Sky

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh,

I find that we are all placed in a pickle at some point in our lives, perhaps we are the one placing other's in pickles. I don't know, let's see what we can do about this pickle fiesta, shall we?

What I mean by being in a pickle, is often there are situations, whether it be arguments, opinions, debates etc. There's always questions being asked, expectations being set.

Sisters, we shouldn't feel obliged to change our thoughts to meet others expectations. For example if someone asks you what do you think of so and so, and you bearing in mind it is haram to backbite refrain from commenting or say she is alright, makes the person aggravated which leads the person to  further question your opinion on them, it obvious to conclude that they want an agreeable opinion that puts them in the favourable light.

This is in a sense peer pressure, but no sisters I urge you to stand strong in your opinions, who is that person to make you change your mind? There's good situations and bad, that is a bad one and you should not be coerced into sinning.

The good situations are where- the roles are reversed, for whatever reason you have fallen into backbiting, (May Allah save us all from this ameen) and the friend isnt responding in the way you want, which makes you think that your opinions may be wrong, in this sense it is good to take on board different views.

The real outlining of this little thought of mine is, when we hold opinions that in no way transgress Islam we shouldn't change them for others. When we believe something is right we should stick to it, our morals, our values, our belief, our Islam is what sets us apart from the non-believers, so my beloved sister stand firm and unwavering with me.

You're beautiful in your thoughts, your mind, your values, you are a muslim, so never change.

Wasalaam
