Hijab Poem

Look at me . . .
Hear what I have to say.
Open your eyes. Listen for once.

The oppression you fear,
The suppression you feel,
The depression you fall into, All you do for me;
None are wanted or necessary.

Are welts from chains or a husband’s hand imprinted upon my face?
Are my modest glances skittering here and there in trepidation?
Are tears of pain coursing down my face?
NO!

Search my face.
You will find inner peace revealed.
Retrace my modest posture.
From the smooth, unhurried movements;
a confident woman will emerge.
Listen carefully to my soft spoken voice.
Serenity will be woven through each syllable.

I tell you . . . look at me.
I am not oppressed, suppressed, nor depressed.
I am a veiled woman of my own choice, conscience, and rightful cause.

When Family Members and Friends Don’t Understand Depression

We’ve come a little way in reducing the stigma that’s associated with mental illness, but not nearly far enough. Consider these results pulled from a public attitude survey in Tarrant County, Texas, conducted by the county’s Mental Health Connection and the University of North Texas in Denton to determine the community’s view of mental illness:…

Death

Tell me I can get lost,
Tell me I can lose myself in your Presence,
In the overwhelming moment of real submission.

Tell me I can remain forever broken
In You
For You
With You.

Tell me I can remain forever
Away, while still here.

Did not the Prophet say: “Die before your death”?

At first I thought maybe it was only a reminder
to remember our meeting with You.
But then I thought how I wish I could die before my death:

Have a soul that is no longer in this life—even while the body must remain.

A heart that is freed from the shackles of dunya—even while the legs must walk its streets.

Have a nafs that is in complete rest and satisfaction with its’ Lord–even while the crumbling shell remains.

A soul that is already there—even before it is there.

A soul detached.

My Religion

I am Muslim,my religion is called  ISLAM.

This means that I believe in one god

And I follow the teachings of the world’s Muhammad(peace and blessings be upon him)

I do believe in all the other prophets before him, including Jesus. 

I am very dedicated to my religion and hope to live my life being the best  muslim that I can be. 

I want to always follow the pillars of my religion.

Fade To Black

this poem is about my sister

Fade To Black

You used to hear her mangled call
But now she’s hollow inside
Filled up with drugs and alcohol
And drained of all her pride

As good times always seem to fall,
And memories go out with the tide
Her cares and feelings grow so small
And her soul becomes fates bride

She tried to get ahead in life,
But now she’s lost her mind
She used to have a conscience
But dignitys gone blind

She gave her whole life away
To those who can’t give back
And now she’s left with nothing
Stuck in a world that faded black

CHAPTER 4: 1ST PRINCIPLE – TYPES OF WORSHIP (AD’DUA)

Here the author, rahimahullaah,  begins to quote evidences for the types of worship which he mentioned in his saying: “And the types of worship which Allaah commanded, such as Islaam, eemaan  and ihsaan,  and from that is supplication (du’aa)…”  So he began by mentioning the evidences for supplication/invocation (du’aa),  and the proofs for Islaam, eemaan and ihsaan  in detail will […]
