Faith cannot be spread using a sword

In the era of darkness, a radiant
light from the heavens, took birth,
With his actions not just words,
he guided humans to self-worth.

***

He taught them, who was their
lord, the most merciful of all,
despite our sins, if sincere, we
can be forgiven before we fall.

***

We are often told, no matter
what, to always fear our Lord,
‘To hell’ one is condemned,
before God’s judgement is called.

***

But you see, Hussain, just like
Muhammad, didn’t force religion,
For faith which has reached the
heart can never hurt any creation.

***

I now understand, why in Karbala
Hussain never used his sword,
He sacrifice his family and him-
self, to save the faith of his Lord.

***

So, hold on to this very faith, which
was sent to cure every heart ache
Be cautions, in the name of religion,
never force anyone, to hopelessly break.

Lesson from the People of Prophet Salih (as)

pexels-photo-355580

 

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?

 

19095660_10213156276930310_1446861022841973342_o

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.

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.

Honoring the Mother of Ali

I wonder about this lady, who
until her death was praised
Known as ‘my second mother’
Mustafa, repeatedly claimed.
***

From the loss of his father,
mother and grandfather
Ali’s mother, took care of
Ahmad, unlike any other.
***

She nurtured Muhammad, and
fed him before her own children
While being poor, she understood
the worth of Ahmad’s mission.
***

I am not longer surprised, why was the birth
of Ali inside the Kabah so easily granted
For a lady, who honoured the Prophet of
God, in return of her service, she was gifted.
***

She proved her obedience to Allah,
and he chose her as the mother of Ali
For by her actions, God has shown me,
what is the reward of loving this family.

Named ‘Hasan’ as a revelation

To name his first child, waited Ali,
for the Prophet’s permission
Ascended then Gibrail with the
name ‘Hasan’ being as a revelation.

***

Duplicate in many features and
morals, was Hasan to Mustafa
from the very start, he gained
noble trails from RasulAllah.

***

He received from his father,
Ali, with wisdom and bravery,
& from his mother, perfection in
character, was gained undoubtedly

***

For truly, he imitated the best of
creation in habits and qualities
And so was Hasan, raised in the
household of pure personalities.

***

At age 4, whatever, his two eyes would read,
Hasan’s mind would memorize, them instantly
Sticking next to his Grandfather, always, he
also memorized God’s revelations, blissfully.

***

Such was the love from the
Prophet to his grandson,
where he asked Allah for
his sake, to also love Hassan.

***

Now show me someone, without
hesitation who would ask their lord
to not ask forgiveness, but ‘love’, for
these personalities, we have found.

***
Isn’t that enough, for the entire world to know
about the purity of Zahra & Ali’s household
When without a doubt, no one asks for love,
unless those obedient to their lord, can uphold.

Lady Khadija

How beautifully blessed was this gifted lady
Being the first to support the messenger of All Mighty

She learned, worked, earned, and she ran her own business
She showed what is a women’s right through her independence 

She believed in him while the world called him names
And she gave away all her wealth to support those in pain

She lead the 1st prayer, following Muhammad deeply
She gave birth to a Princess, who ruled heaven and earth equally

She was never a miser, nor was she ever so greedy
She did not marry him for wealth, but for him being trustworthy

And if you ever doubt yourself when others say women are of no worth
look nowhere but towards Khadija, for she elevated your status right from birth
