The story of Ibrahim holds a lesson,
One timeless and profound,
To abide by, in an age where
Obedience is barely found.
Why did Allah take him for a friend?
He was an epitome of submission.
What made him from the Ulul-‘Azm?
His sacrifice for the Only One.
Allah decided to test them,
Ibrahim and his wife.
Their trust in … Continue Reading
A hot topic invites many questions
Filled all the headlines in this nation
“The interfaith marriage legalizing”
“The Ministry and Islamic Rules”

“Why have you come to school like this?”
“Haven’t you heard a Hijabi was recently dismissed?”
“School authorities don’t allow religious symbols!”
Seemed as if the rule was only against a particular religion!
Rituals and prayers in assembly halls were done unopposed,

They say … Continue Reading

To steer them back to righteousness,
To remind them of the Approaching Day,
Allah sent to them Prophet Lut,
But all they did was disobey.
He implored them to turn in repentance,
He called … Continue Reading
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
Look what just happened!
Something’s been hampered
In a few seconds!
Nothing’s unusual in this,
It’s the norm currently
To sever ties of kinship
For issues so worldly!
None can be free of blame, I admit,

“Allah, I am tired,
I am desperate,
I am stuck,
Feeling despicable, and sinful.”
She cried, sobbing.
Her gaze was diverted to the thing in front of her.
Clean and well maintained.… Continue Reading
