Thinking About Allah Whilst Crying On The Bathroom Floor

Recommended Posts

Allah

please help me

and please

help mum,

you know we've

both got our problems.

 

Allah

you don't deserve

this ungratefulness.

Wish I could make

the last 18 years

up to you.

But you know I won't

and I don't think I can.

 

Allah

I've been trying to figure

a few things out

but the rent hasn't been

paid and their talking about

kicking us out.

 

Allah

I'm sitting at the back

of the Masjid coz

I don't really know

what the imam is saying

anymore.

I wish I never called

mum a whore.

 

Allah

I don't know if

I'm trying my best

or where I'm really going

or if any if this actually

makes any sense.

 

Allah

I'd be grateful

for another dose

of prozac,

I think it helps a bit.

 

Allah

I don't know if

I can speak to

you like I do.

prayers in Arabic

and I'm in english.

Okay,

this prayer

isn't exaclty

the best dua you've heard

from your beloved schalors

and well learned Mullahs.

But my words gets

kinda shaky when

I start to cry,

I don't really

know why.

 

Allah

Can I come to you again?

Screwed up the first time,

under the bathroom sink

and I'm prepared to think.

Maybe I'll have a chance

to be far away from hell.

I'm saying I love you,

and I hope this never happens again.

it is not good to say Allah ( SWT ) in the bathroom!!!

in bathroom beforeing entering we say aothobillah min ilkhibith walkabaeth , and when leaving u say gafranak .

 

it means you ask Allah to remove the devil in you and when going out you say with your mercy .

 

the name of Allah should not be said in the toilet , its not a right place . some1 clarify please

Salam

indeed, it probably isn't best to say Allah in the toilet, but that is the point here, they're in such unholy state in their lives (or at least they feel they're unholy), that for them, reaching out to Allah, feels like reaching out from their degraded spot...the poem is partly about tugging onto that least breathe of faith, when all else has failed, reaching out from the darkness to Allah hoping that he get one out of this state.

It is not appropriate to say out loud God's name nor use his words in a place where djinn lurk, a bathroom with a toilet being one of them. However, thinking about God is not prohibited at any point, to the best of my understanding.

your gratefulness increases for getting past it

good attitude, and good words except for 'prozac' that was the djinn in the toilet talking through the poet's tongue, but only the word prozac was muttered by the djinn..:sl:

english and arabic..?what is the difference? all languages were made by Allah subhanohu v ta'laa....it is best to talk to Allah in the language that one thinks in...if one is a non-arab, one ought to talk to Allah in one's own language..

overall your poem was good, but the tone of,"calling mama a whore'...this was not very much like a muslim...i dont think muslims can do that or that this happens in their every day lives...anyway, like i said, the poem was good...thankyou for sharing it..salaam.
