I Asked God

I asked God to take away my habit.
God said, No.
It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No.
His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary

I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No.
Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn’t granted, it is learned.

I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No.
I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you.

I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, No.
Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No.
You must grow on your own! but I will prune you to make you fruitful.

I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No.
I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.

I ask God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
God said…Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.
THIS DAY IS YOURS DON’T THROW IT AWAY

May God Bless You,
“To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world”

Allah Wont Ask……

drove who didn’t have transportation.

Allah won’t ask what your highest salary was, but will ask if you compromised
your character or morals to obtain that salary.

people you welcomed into your home.

promoted others.

help others.

A CRY FOR OUR UMMAH

Here’s to a brother, once one of us
He kept to the faith, good and pious
But where is he now? oh Allah, I beseech
he’s out Friday Night doing drugs on the streets
Did you see it coming, did any of you know?
If you did, did you help him those few years ago?
Now his life is meaningless and bleak
Once a strong brother, now he is weak
Here’s to our sister, once righteous and pure
She prayed and she fasted, her Deen was for sure
Now, at eighteen, she’s no longer chaste
Her inncoent spirit, all gone to waste,
God gave us all eyes for us to see
Yet we each still claim “It will never be me”
And these two from our Ummah once claimed that too
SO..MY Sisters, My brothers,
IT COULD ALWAYS BE YOU

Life Is No Easy Ride

Life was never meant to be an easy ride.It was never meant to be a smooth sail.

The journey in this dunya is expected to be rocky.

The personal battles,

The struggles,

The hardships,

The falls – 

are all part of the tests of this dunya.

But know,

Oh slave of Allah, that too will pass.

For light always follows darkness and ease always enter with hardship,

 followed by another ease, and anticipated rewards.

For did you not hear the words of Allah? 

‘Verily, *with* hardship is ease’?

So keep pushing forward, 

Keep walking even if you can’t see an open door, because Al-Fattah will provide for you from where you didn’t imagine in ways you never expected, through doors you thought were tightly locked.

Your key, is patience. 

Your ultimate weapon, is Dua

And your strength, is in Sujood. 

Your comfort, is in Quran, 

And your ease, is in His remembrance.

For indeed in His remembrance do hearts find true rest and tranquility.

Jummah Mubarak to You and Your Loved Ones.

Remember Me and Mine in your duas in sha Allah ameen.

  
   

 


 

Poem on Allah and our needs

I asked Allah for strength
And Allah gave me difficulties to make me strong
I asked Allah for wisdom
And Allah gave me problems to solve
I asked Allah for prosperity
And Allah gave me brains and brawn to work
I asked Allah for courage
And Allah gave me dangers to overcome
I asked Allah for love
And Allah gave me troubled people to help
I asked Allah for favors
And Allah gave me opportunities
I received nothing I wanted
I received everything I needed
My prayers have been answered

Repeat 

I feel sad and empty blue loneliness I desperately deeply despair oh 

I despair 

I despise feelings of sad empty loneliness and despair

I cry secretly and silently, in the deepest darkness of night when all of the others slumber.

In the daylight I deny crying in the night

I movethrough life in a sonic state ,

My life is like ground hogs day over and over again. 

Nothing, changes and everything stays the same.

  

Broken Heart

Broken Heart

You broke my heart,
Tore it in two,
Then lied even more.

You broke my heart,
Said you still loved me,
Then went for my enemy.

You broke my heart,
Told me you liked her,
Then said you didn’t love me anymore.

You broke my heart,
I told you I still loved you,
Then you said you never loved me.

Hypo manic mixed state 

skin is antisy and creepy crawling inside with anguish and annoying deep within my soul 

anguished despairing dark deepness of all my life 

depressed despair! filled with grayish green blackness that noone else understands or cares 

its like staring into a abyss and the abyss stares back 

but no matter how deep the abyss is its up to you to jump or not! 

 

Strength

Strength

When problems in life make you seem weak
that’s when you are most likely defeated.
But once you realize, there is a strength
in you that can not be weakened, that’s when
you see clearly and your path in life is
deepened. Don’t let any one or any thing
choose your destiny, just trust in who you
are and proceed accordingly. You are
strongest in your darkest hour, so hang
tough and believe in your power. Power to
control your own destiny and not settle for
anything less than what you want your
life to be. Yes, this strength lies deep
inside us all. So, when you’re about to
fall, take a step back, reflect on who
you are and answer the call.
