Many Gifts

Allah you have granted me many gifts

Throughout my life I have always found

Your blessings showered on me abound

Of all the blessings you have chosen to give

Imaan is the most valued and then the chance to live

For I know I have been ungrateful in the past

Sinning like forever I would last

But alas you guided me from the darkness

And pulled me onto the path of success

I pray you keep me upon it steadfast

Until death and when I breathe my last.

Try Your Best

When you know you are trying your best,
When to please your Maker you never rest.

Then excuse those who do not see the light,
In what you stand for and constantly fight.

Those who unjustly try to serve a punch,
The Almighty Alone protects from that bunch.

Those who say a lot but know you not,
Should be ashamed of what they’ve now got.

Waste not your time straightening their line,
Rather draw a perfect one & you’ll be fine.

But correct yourself if they are indeed right,
For that is righteousness in His Sight!

SubhaanAllah!

Mufti Ismail Menk

Allah

When things are down
And you are out of your mind
Remember just remember
Allah is The Kind.

When your life is in darkness
And nothing is right
Remember just remember
Through the darkness,
Allah is The Light.

When nothing makes sense
And your heading for demise
Remember just remember
It doesn’t make sense, but Allah is The Wise.

When times are troubled
And no one seems to care
Remember just remember
Allah won’t hurt you, He is The Fair.

When your heart is breaking
And your pain makes you fall
Remember just remember Allah Sees it all.

When you are weak
And the road seems long
Remember just remember
Seek strength from The Strong.

When life is a burden
And everything is unstable
Remember just remember
Allah is The Able.

When the way is cloudy
And there is no one by your side
Remember just remember
Allah is The Only Guide.

When no one wants to listen
Or is willing to lend an ear
Remember just remember
Allah is always ready to hear.

When you are poor and penniless
And you are stuck in a niche
Remember just remember
Allah is The Rich.

When you are down in your misery
And there is nowhere to run
Remember just remember
You can always run to The One.

And when your scars are hurting
And your heart is in fear
Remember just remember
Allah is really here.

Am I Grateful?

Am I truly grateful for each breath that I take,
For each and every moment that I am awake?
Do I thank Allah for my restful sleep,
And for the dreams that cause me to weep?

Am I honestly thankful to the Almighty One,
For the early morning mist, the bright, rising sun?
During Fajr prayer, I use my soft prayer mat,
As Allah’s servant, do I appreciate that?

Throughout the day, do I realise,
That Allah, All knowing and the Most Wise,
Gives me what I need and so much more
And that I have so much to be grateful for?

A grandmother’s love, a book of hadith,
The clothes that I wear, the food that I eat,
The book that I should follow, the Holy Qur’an,
Promoting the good and ending the wrong.

So I must ask myself every beautiful day,
Am I truly grateful for each breath that I take,
For each and every moment that I am awake?
Do I thank Allah for my restful sleep,
And for the dreams that cause me to weep?
