iMusliMariam posted a topic in Poems and StoriesPOETRY: Why I Love The Prophet Muhammad (May Allah's Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him) If you ask me, why do I love him, the Prophet Muhammad (May Peace be upon him) - I love him because he cared about us Muslims, and loving him is a condition – If you love Allah, then love the Prophet Muhammad – Allah loved him very much. He was Allah's Final Messenger, and The hearts of many did his mercy touch. His beautiful character makes me admire Him – his trustworthiness and honesty – Even before he became God's Prophet, Disbelievers knew that he was trustworthy. I love the Prophet Muhammad because Of good manners he was the best example. I love how he was patient throughout his life And how his morals were never skeptical. He cared about his nation too, thus he taught Us what we should know about our religion. When given the chance he'd always educate, Blessing us with advice through his companions. As a father and grandfather, the Prophet Muhammad was kind and tender loving. His mercy to the poor, widows and orphans – His good treatment of them is too astounding. His tolerance, even to non-Muslim Neighbors, is also something to be admired. His mercy too was further manifest Through his kind treatment of the slaves he hired. As a leader – he was charismatic, As a warrior – marked with strength and bravery, As a family man – full of mercy, And a husband who treated his wives fairly – As a friend – he was accommodating – Full of cheer, he brought smiles to people's faces – Respectful to the old, and kind towards the young – Mercy was the Prophet Muhammad's basis. I love how he was merciful – and because Of his mercy, he always tried to guide. I love how he struggled to obey Allah, And how he remained patient all through his life. I love how he was able to do so much – So many good deeds, despite his simple life – How he could survive on mere dates and water, And yet stand for long hours when praying at night. I love how he was so thankful to Allah – How he was always ready to sacrifice. I love how his character was dignified – How he was strong and gentle at the same time. I love the patience of Prophet Muhammad – In worshipping Allah, in fasting, and praying – His patience in helping Muslims, and in hard times, And how he was merciful and forgiving. Because of my love for Prophet Muhammad, I try to follow him – and say "you should too" – If you truly love Allah, then love Muhammad – Let your following him make your love more true. O' Allah, help us obey you, and help us Follow Muhammad – in this world and to Heaven – Grant us his companionship in Paradise, And freedom to drink from his blessed fountain. Ameen. Written by Mariam Mababaya POETRY: Some Advice In This Sonnet A few words of advice in this sonnet: Don’t hurt, if you too don’t like to be hurt. When bad deeds return, you might regret it. So watch your deeds, and take care of your words. Always know that from above you’re being watched. On your right and left are angels writing – Collect whatever good deeds you may lack, To please God and meet Him while He’s smiling. Avoid supplications prayed against you, Especially those of righteous Muslims. Beware of everything you see and do – Know that on Judgment Day, you’ll be questioned. Obey Allah’s Rules, and good you shall get. If you displease Allah, yours is regret. Mariam Mababaya
The Idiot's Guide To 'Karma' According to Wikipedia, the term 'Karma' means "the concept of "action" or "deed", understood as that which causes the entire cycle of cause and effect originating in ancient India and treated in the Hindu, Jain, Buddhist and Sikh religions." or simply 'what goes around comes around' (A person's actions, whether good or bad, will often have consequences for that person.). In Islam, this statement can be explained as 'Allah's Justice' or 'rewards and punishments of actions in this world and on Judgment Day'. Ten examples of 'karma': `1. Girl 1 keeps making fun of girl 2 about girl 2's acne. After several years, girl 1 is awarded with dozens of pimples all over her face for being previously unkind and stuck up. 2. A teenage girl simply thinks that an old woman's urine problems are 'just weird'. Years pass by and the girl suffers from the same sickness that old lady suffered. 3. Two best friends refuse the friendship of a girl they don't like. After a long time, the two intimate friends break up and have no plans of talking to each other again. That is God's justice for their refusal of allowing that girl to join their clique. 4. An older guy keeps bullying a young kid, and also encourages other kids to bully that little boy. When the guy grows up into an adult and marries, he finds out that he is permanently sterile. 5. A non-Muslim man, driving his car, deliberately collides with another car, just because the family in that car are Muslim. The Muslims keep praying/making du'as against that non-Muslim until one day the non-Muslim guy suffers from a car accident, falls off a cliff while no one hears his cries. God's justice for that non-Muslim's injustice. 6. A bunch of non-Muslim students who keep insulting a Muslim woman for her niqaab, lying about her being 'lonely' -when the non-Muslim men, after so many years, become old-aged/senile, their own kids send them away to an old people's home where they experience the loneliness of being abandoned by their own family, who completely forgot about them and became Muslims. 7. A man who has stolen many things in the past and who never returned anything he borrowed, now has others stealing from his belongings. What you do unto others, God (Allah) too may return your actions someday to you. 8. A girl who keeps doing bad things to other girls at school, calling some girls 'ugly' and acting like a bully, ends up being abused almost daily by her older brother(s) when she reaches her teens. The supplications of the girls' parents against that non-Muslim girl was answered. 9. A man who intentionally blocks water from reaching a town or village -what he prevented others from having, God (Allah) may likewise prevent him at a time when that man may need it the most. 10. A non-Muslim laughs at a Muslim woman's predicament. Some time in the future, that man undergoes the exact same thing the woman went through. So basically, any bad thing you do to a Muslim will surely come back to you. Likewise, any good thing you do to a Muslim may lead to Allah having mercy on you. Allah knows best. Be careful of the supplications/du'as of the Muslims you mistreat (treat badly) lest their du'as/prayers against you are answered by Allah in this world and/or on Judgment Day. If one du'a of a Muslim can change the life of an evil wrongdoing non-Muslim, how much more if so many oppressed Muslims pray against some non-Muslims who unjustly took away their lands, belongings etc.? That non-Muslim, he laughs at the Muslim and thinks he's smart But little does he (the non-Muslim) know... that Allah may be laughing too At how foolish he is for his sins and disbelief That his evil deeds are just his means to entering Hell For the evil he was and the evil he used to do He thinks he's all that, but to God (Allah) and the angels that man is nothing To all created things and e'en the inanimate, that atheist is nothing So ignore his insults which are only a sign of his insecurity, don't listen to him Until he returns to Allah and vows to be a true and sincere Muslim. It was narrated that Allah's Messenger Muhammad (SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said: "God (Allah) is only merciful with those who show mercy to others." (Al-Bukhârî) and "Be merciful to those on the earth, so the One (Allah) above the heavens will be merciful to you." one of the signs of Allah's mercy on someone is when He (Allah) guides that person to what leads to Heaven, in other words Islam.
