Russian Roulette

He brings life, death and life again

It’s predictable, use your brain

What’s a life without a name?

We can not forget the set frame

If not a game of chances

It’s a game of good ounces

When death knocks upon your door

Will you regret you bad core?

I am the distance that does not exist

Without His will would I be this?

I am the life that knows not death

It is like a game of Russian roulette

I am the caller from the land of YES

Where I agree with my destiny no less

Our life! Our tomorrow!

Ya Allah, you who we follow

I raise my taqwa to the skies of love

Challenging the decree above

Challenge with my scale of deeds

Will I succeed?

The burden of things unsaid

Will you leave unprepared?

Say to whom you care I LOVE YOU

Without the regret ‘if only you knew’

Death stops by once

You think there is another chance?

I love you mum and dad

And I am sorry for making you sad

At least you can read this and know

How grateful I am. This I do not show

If I breathe my last breath

I want it to be out of goodness

Ya ilaahi I’m shaking

They beauty of establishing

My inner desire of Jannah

Has spoken through my persona

It is thou’s will

But it is my MANZIL

Verily, with ALLAH alone is the knowledge of the Hour. And HE sends down the rain, and HE knows what is in the wombs. And no soul knows what it will earn tomorrow, and no soul knows in what land it will die. Surely, ALLAH is All-Knowing, All-Aware. “” 31:34

“say: ‘ It is Allah Who gives life, then gives you death; then He will gather you together for the Day of Judgement about which there is no doubt’: but most men do not understand.”

Did you think that We have created you in jest, and that you would not be bought back to us [for account]?” {surah 23:115}

“Blessed is He in Whose hands is Dominion; and He over all things has Power-He Who created Death and Life, that He may try which of you is best in deed; and He is Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving.” {surah 67:1-2}

On that Day, man will be brought to account for his deeds. If they are good, it wil be good for him and if they are bad, it will be bad for him. There will be no slightest injustice.

“That Day will every soul be requitted for what is earned; no injustice will there be thaht Day, for Allah is Swift in taking account.” {surah 40:17}

The balance of deeds will be either against him or for him.

“Then Shall anyone who has done an atom’s weight of good, see it! And anyone who has done an atom’s weight os evil, see it.” {surah 99:7-8}

“We shall set up scales of justice for the Day of Judgement, so that not a soul will be dealt with unjustly in the least. And if there be [ no more than] the weight of an mustard seed, We will bring it [to account]: and enough are We to take account.” {surah 21:47}

The author of ‘the ideal muslimah’ muhammad Ali Al-Hashimi says;

That we should ponder over the meanings of the verses of the Qur’an and think about the crucial Day. We should turn to Allah in obedience, repentance and gratitude, seeking to do as many righteous deeds as we are able to do, in preperation for the Hereafter.

Inspired by ‘How Can You Deny’- No Beats necassary

I take step outside to my temporary home

SubhanAllah, in this world are we here to roam?

The magnitude of the sceneries my eyes see

Tell my Heart how could this be?

How can you deny the Oneness of Allah?

Allah hu Akbar!

Its there in your face, the creation of Al Khalik

Embrace it, but not too much, just think…

We have to prepare ourselves for the Akhira

ask yourself are you just wasting valuable time in this Duniya?

How can you deny the Oneness of Allah?

Allah hu Akbar!

Repentance it is

The very route of my wish

I acknowledge His presence

With the Duniya’s essence

How can you deny the Oneness of Allah?

Allah hu Akbar!

Oh seed of Adam, Oh soul almost lost

Goodness of this life is the next’s very cost

Oh plain and simple forgetful insan

Take heed to Allah SWT and hold on to your eman!

How can you deny the Oneness of Allah?

Allah hu Akbar!

You, Oh seeker, seeking peace dont deter

Oh traveller, travelling to somwhere better

Awake and breath, Pour out your heart

To the listener above, with any doubts.

Allah hu Akbar!

Surah An- Nur (Light)

Ayah 43

Hast thou not seen how Allah wafteth the clouds, then gathareth them, then maketh them layers, and thou seest rain come forth from between them; He sendeth down from the heaven mountains wherein is hail, and smiteth therewith whom He will, and avarteth it from whom He will. The flashing of His lightening all but snatcheth away the sight.

When will you submit?

A slave never questions his Master,

Only in His remembrance we should utter

Utter the beautiful names of Asma-al-Husna

Be sincere and always renew your intention

When you have free time for motivation

This life needs that declaration

We act blind yet its so clear

The day of resurrection is so near

Are we increasing that love and fear?

You say you hear and you obey

With in a minute of a second your found astray

come back oh sinner come back to Al-Hayy

Have you forgotten your a muslim?

Have you forgotten Al-Alim?

He knows what ye not know, lifes not slim.

You got the gift of time which is slowly decreasing

When will you submit? or will you just continue procrastinating?

This duniya will take it with you just decaying

Take heed Oh bani Adham

And leave that of which is Haram

Return to Dhul-Jalali Wal- Ikram

(The Lord of Majesty and Bounty)

The Mercy of Allah in Regard to Forgiveness

Will they not repent to Allah and ask His forgiveness? For Allah is the Forgiving, the Merciful. (Surat al-Maaidah 5:74)

And who can forgive sins except Allah? (Surah Ali Imran 3:135)

Allah praises the one who truly believes, has hope, and seeks the forgiveness of his Creator, as did his father, Adam:

Say: Shall I not inform you of things far better than those (things of this world)? For the pious, there are gardens with their Lord, wherein rivers flow. Therein (is their) eternal home and pure wives. And Allah will be pleased with them. And Allah is Seer of the slaves. Those who say, Our Lord! We have indeed believed, so forgive us our sins and save us from the punishment of the Fire. They are those who are patient, those who are true and obedient with sincere devotion in worship to Allah. Those who spend (in charity) and those who pray and beg for Allahs forgiveness in the last hours of the night. (Surah Ali Imran 3:15-17)

Allahs forgiveness and mercy is far greater and more vast than the sins of the creation. One must always have trust and hope in Allah in both good times and bad times and especially when seeking Allahs forgiveness. And the believer who calls out to his Lord for forgiveness demonstrates his true weakness and that he is totally dependent on the Creator. When one confesses his sins to Allah and sincerely repents with hope in Allahs mercy, the heart should come to peace and the soul should feel rest. When a person has hope, he has no reason to despair because it only leads to destruction. Allah gives hope to all, especially those who despair that there is no reason to despair because Allah is the Most Merciful of all those who show mercy. Allah praises those who repent and turn to Him:

And those who, when they commit a lewd act or wrong themselves with evil, remember Allah and ask forgiveness for their sinsand who forgives sins except Allah? And they do not persist in what (wrong) they were doing while they knew it. For such, the reward is forgiveness from their Lord and Gardens with rivers flowing through, wherein they shall abide forever. How excellent is the reward of the doers (of good)! (Surah Ali Imran 3:135-136)

Final Destination


I am a dark room; I am locked from all sides.

You have no escape from me.

You will have to enter me one day.

You will arrive on my doorstop all alone.

There will be no one to comfort you.

My destination will be the last in your life.

The choice is not there whether you will enter me or not.

One day you will arrive.

But you won’t come prepared; you will come with a baggage.

A baggage, which will be of no use to you.

Leave your baggage behind.

Seek forgiveness now and you will enter me in peace.

I am your grave and I call you everyday.

Heed my call and repent.

For your final destination would be at my doorstop.

Oh my Heart

With the complaint the silence was broken
The complaint was medication which has spoken

My heart harbors concerns
More less than I want it to burn

O my heart, I have consulted right
I will not let you lead me to my plight

The cup of bitterness I foresee
Strangely enough is being drunk by me

And others are the time of agony
But Allah has comforted as my remedy

I know my smile does not remove it
What came to me was to fit

That serves me in my fight
Inflicted easy to paint my delight

Agreed the tears of bitterness was left to the skies
Racing down like heavy downfall abandoning my eyes

Today, I emptied the pain by crying to the light
Regretting for what was me for so many nights

Dried my tears from what I had to see
But Sabr gave me strength in adversity

Alhamdulillah this cold black heart will free
Every time it hears the beautiful names of As-Sami! (The All- Hearing)

Searching for you


All our life we spend searching for the one

The one to put a smile on our face

To ease our worries

To be there for us when we need them

Someone who loves us and whom we will love back

Someone who understands everything about us

We desire the one, the one to make everything better

To make all the day problems to go away

We search, we find and we lose

When will find the one, we say to over selves

Little do we realise that they are already in our life

To ease our worries, who loves us, and will always be there for us no matter what

Allah is the one

Allah loves us

Allah Understands

Allah is the one

Stop searching and turn to Allah

Allah is the one
