أَلا إِنَّ أَوْلِيَاءَ اللَّهِ لا خَوْفٌ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلا هُمْ يَحْزَنُونَ .
الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَكَانُوا يَتَّقُونَ


Ketahuilah!
Sesungguhnya wali-wali Allah, tidak ada kekhuwatiran terhadap mereka, dan mereka pula tidak bersedih hati. Wali-wali Allah itu ialah orang-orang Yang beriman serta mereka pula sentiasa bertaqwa. (Yunus 10: 62-63)

Love for Allah


If my love is attached to Thee
Then from sin I will be free
Each time my heart will beat
Your name will resound with heat
With your name shivers my each limb
They seek to be released from whim
Allah, Allah, is my hearts speech
Your Mercy is what I beseech
The Most Merciful keep me content
With all that You have sent
Keep in my heart Your remembrance
And in Your deen and love allow me to advance
Help me in my quest
Permit me to pass the ultimate test
Save me from the clutches of Satan
Give me death upon Imaan.

My Beloved

                                        

There was a time in my youth,
When Islam was only a custom.
They said "say La IIaha IIIa Allah,..
And pray, you'll go to Heaven."
****************************************************

Ah, how simple, no struggle in this,
Just a word, and simple act.
Thereafter I'm absorbed in this world again,
With my 'assured' place in Paradise intact.
*****************************************************

But this was not to be my fate
For ALLAH chose to guide my heart.
I learnt of a man who struggled so hard
When his mission was from the start.

******************************************************

The story of someone who had morals,
Spoke gently, kindness he knew.
Never fearing to say what's right,
His conviction in ISLAM was true.
******************************************************

The touch of his hand was as soft as silk
To comfort a crying child.
To mend his clothes, or do the chores,
Never complaining, he always smiled.
******************************************************

A living he made with his bare hands,
The same that held his mighty sword.
Valour shone from the edge of his blade,
******************************************************

His smell was always of musk,
And cleanliness he kept at his best.
Stark contrast with the heroes of today,
Who stink of beer and sweat.
******************************************************

He held the hands of his companions.
Unashamed to play with many children.
So modest, so humble, a perfect example,
That strangers could not recognise him.
******************************************************

His eyes slept little for nights were precious,
His prayers he treasured much greater.
To pray Tahajjud in the depths of night,
Seeking forgiveness, and nearness to his Creator.
******************************************************

He broke his tooth for me at Uhud,
And bled for me at Ta'if.
He cried for me, tears of concern,
Just so I could have this belief.
******************************************************

His enemies admired his teachings,
Uniting every religion, every clan.
Till ISLAM came to every corner of the world,
O, but indeed he was only a man.
******************************************************

To own a house, or build his wealth
Was not his main priority.
To establish ISLAM was more essential,
To bring us under a Higher Authority.
******************************************************

Don't you want him to plea for your case,
When before ALLAH-The Judge-you stand?
Don't you wish to be around his fountain,
A burning desire to drink from his hand?
******************************************************

So I love him more than all creation,
My Leader, my Humble Prophet.
Muhammad (SAWS) was a mercy to all mankind,
And to me, he is ************
