The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action". [Saheeh Muslim]

Remember The Order…To Lower Your Gaze


As the heat gets hotter. as the sun gets brighter

As they take it all off. as their burden gets lighter

When you feel the temptation as they roam half naked

When you think for sure that you just cant make it

Remember O Muslim the perfect instructions

Remember not to give in to those temptations

Through the lure, the enticement and through the haze

Remember the order “…to lower your gaze”

Don’t go to such places, don’t go to the beaches

Remember the lessons ….remember what Islaam teaches

Don’t sit idle in the street nor visit the mall

When you know they are going to bare it all

Now, I know it isn’t easy.. its hard not to stare

Its difficult to look away when its all there

But, don’t feed your lust, nor set it ablaze

Remember the order “…to lower your gaze”

What’s the harm in it, they say. It’s nothing but fun!

If I look at some bodies bathing in the sun!

A lustful look towards the opposite gender

Is all that it takes to set off the trigger

It leads to sin and abomination

It paves the way for fornication

Don’t take it so lightly, don’t think it’s a phase

Remember the order “… to lower your gaze”

Watch out for that arrow..the arrow from Satan
The one you’re warned about’ laden with poison

The arrow that is aimed towards your very heart
When it reaches its target, it leaves a black mark

It infects your heart and leaves it vulnerable
for Shaytaan to take over and do as he is able

Recall the Prophet’s words for he told no lies
“Looking at something forbidden is the zinaa of the eyes.”

Don’t look at anything haraam, that’s what he said
So when temptation passes by, ..just turn away your head

Just lower your gaze,..don’t give that second look
For you never know when you get caught by the hook

A lustful glance, then the talk ..then the meeting
You know what comes next, .after all the flirting

Fornication is major. “Don’t even come near it
It starts with that first look, every Muslim should fear it

So lower your gaze, don’t look at haraam
Strive for good deeds,..they work like a charm

If you are able then do get married
That’s what the Prophet 3alayhi-salaam instructed

Keep voluntary fasts,…they will make you strong
Being a good Muslim, you surely can’t go wrong

A part of his character is the Muslim’s gaze
So fear Allaah as you spend these summer days

Ask Allaah to help you, …you’ll find Him there
And never underestimate the power of prayer

Not only in the streets, remember O Muslim
Lower your gaze when watching television

The shows, ..the sitcoms…the underwear ads
The suggestive scenes….the fashions and the fads

Day in and day out, we watch haraam and yet…
when “Baywatch” comes on, we don’t turn off the set

Did you forget the Day when Allaah will ask you
of every look you cast,….every glance you threw

So where will you hide….what will you do
That Day your eyes will witness against you

Remember, the beauty of this world is temporary
The question is then….will you be able to carry

Your head down,  in front of the Almighty
When you stand on a Day, so long so dreary?

You are the best Ummah….the Model Community
Custodians of Truth….Upholders of Morality

So fight the Shaytaan, stop him in his wickedness
Lower your gaze, ask for Allaah’s forgiveness

And thank Allaah O Muslim and realize
The greatest blessing is a pair of eyes

Don’t use it to disobey Him, don’t earn His Displeasure
For you will be asked what you did with this treasure

It is not too late…to repent….to amend
Start now….by lowering your gaze my friend

قُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنِينَ يَغُضُّوا مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِمْ وَيَحْفَظُوا فُرُوجَهُمْ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ أَزْكَىٰ لَهُمْ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ خَبِيرٌ بِمَا يَصْنَعُونَ

وَقُل لِّلْمُؤْمِنَاتِ يَغْضُضْنَ مِنْ أَبْصَارِهِنَّ وَيَحْفَظْنَ فُرُوجَهُنَّ

“Tell the believing men to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things), and protect their private parts (from illegal sexual acts, etc.). That is purer for them. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what they do. 

And tell the believing women to lower their gaze (from looking at forbidden things) & guard their modesty…” [soorah An-Noor, v:30-31]

A Talk with the Self

 

Oh my self what will calm you?
Can’t you remain patient for a day or two?
I try to contain you but your strength overpowers
But when we die life will seem like hours

So can’t you be patient for part of a day?
And remain steadfast upon the straight way?
The direction you’re taking leads to my worst fears
Of the day we stand for fifty thousand years

No one will joke nor talk nor smile
And the sun from our heads will be at a mile
Nowhere to hide and nowhere to flee
Standing for what seems an eternity

Then the judgment begins and the books will land
Either on your right or your left hand

Oh my self …

Do not become like those who left the right track
And put their left hands behind their back

Oh self

how do you plan to cross the siraat suspended in the air?
Craftier than a fox, sharper than a sword and thinner than a hair?
How do you plan to cross? Or will you cross at all?
The blink of an eye? Run? Or would you rather crawl?

The bad deeds you command will drop you from it
And only good deeds put you back upon it
Oh self it’s a five hundred year-drop suspension
Over a terrible place I’d rather not mention

Oh self…

Do not be fooled by this world and its illusions
And keep in mind judgment, the grave and other conclusions
Oh self wake up! Don’t follow your desire
And ask for forgiveness to avoid the fire

Oh self

keep the commands and avoid prohibitions
And pay close attention to these admonitions
Be amongst those who were the best of planners
Who prepared for the future with good deeds and good manners

Oh self

it simply about your control
Being patient now so as to reach your goal
I don’t mean to put a burden, or put much stress
Just to warn of a day when the limbs confess

Sins add up as you live through the years
Then sadness won’t save you and nor will the tears
Every time you sin the Shaytan is winning
So remember the One against Whom you’re sinning

Oh my self…

Life is short and ends when you least expect it
And then what will you say when you’re resurrected?
The angel of death overlooked you and took the souls of your brothers
And one day he’ll come to you and overlook others

For great rewards plant the righteous seeds
Oh Allah, I seek refuge from the evil of my self and from the evil of my deeds.

Close your Eyes(Beautiful Poem about Jannah)

Forgive me when I whine

“And He gave you of all that you asked for, & if you count the Blessings of Allaah, never will you be able to count them. Verily, man is indeed an extreme wrong-doer, a disbeliever (an extreme ingrate who denies Allah’s Blessings by disbelief, and by worshipping others besides Allah, and by disobeying Allah and His Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم).

[soorah Ibraaheem/14, aayah: 34]


Forgive me when I whine “A reminder”

“Do not look to those above you. Look to those below you, as it will more likely remind you of Allah’s favors bestowed on you.”

[Saheeh al-Bukharee and Saheeh Muslim]

Last Breath

 

“Everyone shall taste the death. Then unto Us you shall be returned.”
[soorah Al-Ankaboot, v:57]
