I see two souls who have never met,
Or they did meet, let’s perceive;
Multiple back-and-forth journeys later,
It’s decided their match shall appease.
Wait! There remains the sunnah of istikhara
To be done by the couple in question;
Oh, but I see a local imaam is being asked
To do the special prayer seeking Allah’s consent!
‘Red and black … Continue Reading
“The wedding date is coming near,
All the arrangements need to be clear.”
“Has the bride’s family been informed
Of the dowry for this new relationship to be formed?”
“Oh, I’m sorry! Islam prohibits dowry!
I meant the ‘gifts’ given to marry.”

Allah, you saved Your believers that day;
Musa had his trust in You, come what may!
إن معي ربي سيهدين

Who brought science to you, I say,
Who gave you the authority to betray?
Who nourishes the intellectual mind
That you so effortlessly portray?
Let’s begin from the basics and ascend;
The human … Continue Reading
They say: “The concept of God is a delusion;
Everything came into existence because of a big collision.”
The earth and the mountains,
The forest and the fountains,
The nature full of intricacies,
The universe full of complexities!

And for a cake, you need a baker,
Even the simplest things need a maker; … Continue Reading
It’s not easy being in a world with so many options;
Too many people, a whole lot of decisions.
Feeling out of control in a world so free
Will eventually become a prison with a lock, no key.
Living in the fast lane, alone, with nothing to gain,
Wondering if it’s all worth it, or will it lead to a … Continue Reading
