Thoughts In Ramadhan

July 24, 2012 § Leave a comment


They perceived the truth, The righteous ones

They triumphed, Whilst my heart is blind

The night conceals their splendid beauty

Yet, their light exceeds that of the stars

The melody of remembrance made their living pure

Hearts emptied for remembrance

Tears are like pearls arranged

Their daybreak shines radiant upon them

Honored robes of clemency are the best allotment

Woe unto you my soul

Will you not awaken?

And benefit before my feet slip?

In trivial matters and whims has time elapsed

So grasp what remains of it and profit.

Tahajjud

Dark and silent nights
On the mat of love I sit
Could we ever be lovers?

: Night air is chilling
Tears of regret come rolling
Unworthy of your kindness

: Stillness of the night
I stood still ever with hope
Your Mercy and Grace

: Streaks of warm dawn lights
Intimacy nears its end
Sadly I depart

Hopefully, our tender moments will continue, everlastingly. By Your Mercy, Grace and Blessings.

A Beautiful Poem… Made Imam Ahmad (RA) Cry

June 24, 2012 § Leave a comment


A beautiful and touching poem that made the respected scholar Imam Ahmad cry upon hearing it.

If my Lord asks me ‘Have you shyness in disobeying me? You conceal your sins from my creation – and with sins you come to me.’
So how will I answer? O woe to me – and who shall protect me?
I keep averting my soul with thoughts of hope – from time to time.
And I forget what is to come after death – and what is to come after I am shrouded.

As if I am guaranteed life (eternally) – and that death will not come to me.
And when the severe stupor of death overtakes me – who will protect me?
I looked at the faces, is there not from amongst them who will ransom me?
I will be asked regarding what I’ve prepared in my life to save me (on the Day of Judgement). Then how will I answer – after I’ve neglected my religion.

Woe to me! Did I not hear the Speech of Allah inviting me?
Did I not hear what came in (the chapters of) Qaaf and Yaa Seen?
Did I not hear about the Day of Gathering, the Day of Assemble and the Day of Judgment?
Did I not hear the crier of death inviting me, calling me?

So O’ my Lord, a slave (turning to you) I have repented – so who then shall shelter me?
Except a Lord extensive in forgiveness – to the truth He will guide me.
I have come to you (in repentance) – so have mercy on me, and make heavy my scales (with good deeds).
And lighten my account – You are the best of who will bring me to account.

It surely brought tears to my eyes too!

Where Am I?
