It’s funny how we take things for granted, even our own breath;
Allah tells us there is a cure for everything, except our own death.
So be the seekers of knowledge, and make a start;
Find a cure, for the mind, body, and heart;
With this in mind, nothing can tear you apart.
Acknowledge the illness, have sabr, and act … Continue Reading
When I have a look around me,
I wonder at the chaos I see;
Increase in sickness and disease,
I wonder what good lies in this.
The rich with too much food fall ill,
The poor die, struggling for a morsel;
Abundance is a trial, I see,
Scarcity is a test, I believe.
When I have a look around me,… Continue Reading
Let’s close our eyes
And delve into the medieval times,
Where deen and dunya together flourished,
Where progression in every field was acknowledged.
Let’s delve into the Islamic Golden Age,

The glitter of the world sparkled,
Leaving the teenager’s eyes dazzled!

Upon the path of salvation for all;
A way of life taught so long ago,
Does it apply now, I wonder though?
An outdated version, they say;
Unsuitable, orthodox, inappropriate.
Brought by an unlettered man,
It surely needs a modernistic update.
Let’s start with a trivial act
Of washing hands and staying … Continue Reading
A tablespoon of kindness,
A teaspoon of sternness,
Makes a good parent.
An ounce of proper communication,
A cup of proper understanding,
Seen between the Prophets Yaqub عليه السلام and Yusuf عليه السلام,
Results in laying the foundation

A ladle of love and care,
With a mote spoon of advice,
Given by Prophet Ibraheem … Continue Reading
A girl in her twenties,
Battling several insecurities,
Being pulled towards the gleam,
And holding onto piety’s rein.
Confusion and chaos led her to her father,
Questioning why she was denied the power,
Why she couldn’t step out in glow,
Why she, unlike the rest, was behind in row.
Her father snapped and shut her up,
‘Cause her questions were … Continue Reading
