Lesson from the People of Prophet Salih (as)

With compassion, by Salih, the
nation of Thamud, was requested
Only though knowing their Lord,
mankind could remain protected.

***

Sent directly by God, a
medicine to every living soul,
to fill what was once empty,
preserving them to be whole.

***
To prove how true was his noble
message, he was demanded,
To ‘emerge a she-camel, from
a rock,’ they blindly worshipped.

***

God accepted their request
and showed his miracle
in return, water must always
be in access to the she-camel.

***

They allowed the access of water as
commanded for just a short period
Once again, they grew ignorant
and from God’s path, they deviated.

***

 

It was just merely water, that
they felt too stingy to share
A miracle they once asked God,
they now planned to massacre.

***

 

I wonder, if I were God, how
angered of this act would I be
But he is the Lord of All, most
merciful, if only they could see.

***

For this sin committed, God still
gave them a fair chance, in 3 days
Their punishment would be called
off, if only they seeked forgiveness.

***

Proudly, they challenged
the punishment of God,
upon themselves they
called the wrath of God.

***

I now wonder how many times do
we receive gifts without asking
A gift directly from God, to keep
our souls pure, from sinning.

***

Everything the Lord does,
is always best for us
So why do we abuse his
gift, becoming more worse.

***

 

 

 

When Alone, would you be like Ali?

Alone in worship, day and
night he would remain
For alone, your souls,
one day will also be taken.

***

He showed the world, the master of his
and every creation is only Allah.
While his isolation with God was
feared, he remained firm in his Salah.

***

Ibn Mujlim, sought a deep desire
to marry a woman, as a condition
Accepted would be his proposed,
if completed Ali’s assassination.

***

While Ali remained lost in
prayer, conversing with his Lord
Like a coward, attacked ibn Muljim
poisoning Ali with his sword.

***

In this sacred month
of forgiveness, ibn Muljim
For the sake of his desires,
betrayed this religion.

***

I wonder, are you and I
any different than him..
Before you put desires
above God, think again.

***

When alone, would you be like Ali,
lost in his Lord’s remembrance..
Or like his killer, lost in fulfillment
of desires- chosen to be forsaken.

Shine for Imam Mahdi (as)

Untitled-1

 

Like the Sun I want to rise,
bright in front of your sight.
Sacrificing for the good, I try
to never dim away my light.
***

For you, I speak against the
wrong and defend what’s right.
And you secure my soul,
form any darkness to ignites.
***

I fear, this light, before you arrive, with my
every fibre, I continuously try to obtain.
But due to my sins, might lose its shine,
tarnishing me into pieces, once again.
***

Yet I know, you’ve raised me to glare
against every cloud and thunder
I plead, approve me as your own
and come back as my just leader.

Prophet Hud’s faith in God

The tribe of Ad, lived in a
beautiful, flourishing land
Granted by God, blessed
with rich grains and sand.
***

When Hud, came to show, who
was the creator of this beauty,
They rejected his words, and
attacked the Prophet for his duty.
***

Flourished never again their
once beautiful, healthy land
Prevented was rain, a wrath
was sent by God’s command.
***

Hud himself, worked in
agricultural and in the fields
And even from his own crops,
rain for many years was shield.
***

In desperation, his nation begged
him to pray to his Lord again
To allow rain fall over their lands,
and success to once more, obtain.
***

Accepted was the prayer to God by Prophet Hud,
Who was their giver, the nation finally understood.
For the mischiefs, upon them wraths still stood
Upon calamities, the believers, still stayed Good.

***

I wonder how foolish
were Hud’s lost nation,
Like Muhammad’s,
decline from submission.

***

When the giver of blessings, wants
us to learn, why is he so, very kind
To obey him, for our benefit, not
his, protection for the soul, we find.

***

From this selfish world, which stains
my good, I can happily turn away
For the giver of everything, if I submit,
will protect me every single day.

***

When due to his nation, Hud
faced the very same adversity
He never left God, his obedience,
showed this faith’s, clarity.

***

My just leader

 

haider_haider_by_dea_pride-d50zex5

Only for your mother, the
doors of Kabah, opened
To give you birth, Fatima
Binte Asad, was chosen.
***

In your first vision, your eyes
saw the light of Ahmad
The protector of his nation,
Mustafa’s arms cradled.
***

When no one listened, and
accused Ahmad of his mission
You stood against the odds and
decaled your submission.
***

You then defended, Ahmad in
every battle and oppression
While others ran, for God you
remained firm in your position.
***

You became inseparable
from the messenger of God
You love grew deeper, till you
obeyed without any reward.

***

You became a definition, of how
must the lord be worshiped
You taught us how to love God,
with your actions of leadership
***

You were the only cure, for
Muhammad’s lost nation
They begged for your leadership
in tearful, desperation.

***

But you didn’t agree, instantly,
you knocked from door to door
Asking, is there anyone against
you for becoming their mentor?
***

Pleased was the entire land of Madina,
of you becoming their saviour
For only you were the, the Quran
and Mustafa’s teaching’s armour.

***

I am not surprised, after years of
your rights being unjustly snatched
They begged for you, for in God’s path
only you remained attached.
***
You are my brave, just, leader,
with calamities you taught me
As long as I remain close to God,
everything’s a test and not misery.

***

 

 

Abbas protects the proof of God

In Karbala, both of his
hands were unjustly taken
For in return, 2 wings were
gifted to him in heaven.
***
I now understand why was Hazrat
Abbas given something so high
He protected the proof of God,
with every pain and every cry.

***

With no vision, within his heart
he saw God in his every action
Yet with clear sight, the poof of
God, from us remains hidden.

Prophet Hud’s oppression

Prophet Hud like Mehdi was also
asked to remain in occultation
for in his absence, the people
had lost their faith in his mission.
***
They asked for their saviour, just
like we’ve been asking since years
Yet when Hud appeared, his was
nearly strangled, with scars & tears.
***
The people of Hud were asked leave
the worship of idols, the difference
between us and them, we still worship
our desires and think we are pious.
***
I understand now, why has Allah
still kept our saviour hidden
For he knows, his representor
would not receive, submission.
