REPENTANCE

 
It is very much liked
Peace be upon Muhammad and his family
As he enjoins us to its lofty ideal
We return to Allah again and again

When one mentions Allah Azza Wa Jall
He automatically mentions the beloved of Allah Azza Wa Jall
Peace be upon him and his family, he was used to, everyday
Asking Allah’s forgiveness more than 70 times

To repent is neither superficial nor easy
It’s a lifelong commitment
And an admittance of a wrong done to someone
Which is not forgiven except after making peace with him
 
The small sins as we know from Allah’s beloved
Peace be upon him and his family always
Are cancelled with 3 istighfars
Said in the way appropriate for this purpose
 
Repentance is greater than istighfar
Muhammad insisted on both but crowned repentance
Peace be upon him and his family at every moment
Strength is not only repentance, but repentance is great strength

MERCY
 
 
That which is a part of the nature of humans
That therefore is a great attribute of Allah Azza Wa Jall
Which He seems to covetously withhold
And everything He values He withholds, without a doubt

The goal of all and the motivation of each one
The Beloved of God took all under his blessed wings
Peace be upon him and his family
Thanks to whom humans and all species are adorned with beauty
 

In the Book of him, Allah Azza Wa Jall explained
In the Book of him, peace be upon him and his family
The first words are words of Mercy, The Most Merciful, the Great Merciful
Opening all 114 Surahs of Allah, except one

The only Surah of the Qur’an that does not start with the words of mercy
Is the Surah called Tawba (Repentance), which ends with the praise of Muhammad
The mercy of Allah for all creation, Peace be upon him and his family
A Surah stern in content and obvious in meaning

Look no further for Allah’s greatest Name, it is the words of mercy
About him who is the mercy for all worlds, as written in the Qur’an
Peace be upon him and his family, he only pointed to Yunus
Therefore do we rejoice in the Glory of the words of mercy

TEARS
 
 
Our predecessors in the past were accustomed to crying
Muhammad raised these men, taught them, guided them
Peace be upon him and his family, there were two lines
Upon the face of his blessed Companion
 
The affair of it will only be that
A sincere one collecting treasures for a Day that will come
One great treasure is found within it
Within one drop of it, within a single tear

What we say is the dua for the beloved of God
Peace be upon him and his family, he the cousin of whom
Spoke the truth, recited the book of him
So that the priests and their king cried much
 
Muhammad himself cried before his Lord
Peace be upon him and his family
The Companion recited the Qur’an before him
And noticed that the master was crying, peace be upon him and his family
 
Great this affair of crying
Water from Allah Azza Wa Jall upon the eye
Allah Azza Wa Jall made from water every living thing
So that the eyes must be fixed firm on The Living, Glory to Him

WARMTH
 
 
Humans seem to be in perpetual need of it
That the Messenger ordered us to greet people while we smile
Peace be upon him and his family, the beloved of Allah Azza Wa Jall
And the warmth and the solace to the seekers of knowedge of Allah Azza Wa Jalla
 
Some things human beings take for granted
When they come to be deprived of it, they realize its necessity
In this religion one of our weapons is firm will
Beneath that firm will flows the graceful river of warmth
 
Muhammad has been oft-praised by many men
Peace be upon him and his family, praised by the Companions and other men
He is the one with the most beautiful smile, peace be upon him and his family
And the brilliance of his smile has been mentioned
 

In a gathering of men for the sake of learning
There are lights, without a doubt
And there is warmth, subtle and unnoticed
Hidden, yet precious, graceful and essential

Good deeds we like to do as Muslims
Is to give warmth to others, blessed with it or deprived
Is there anything one enjoys more than this
We hope for great rewards from Allah Azza Wa Jall

FAILURE

 

Let me enjoin you to take caution
For it will come back onto you
With meanness it comes, with mercilessness
It teaches a lesson to some and sets others in bonds

The Messenger warned not to fall to its clutches
Peace be upon him and his family, the Master of all
One can not allow himself to suffer some losses
One must protect his dignity and enjoy life

Some say that failure is the result of heedlessness
I say that Muhammad guided, peace be upon him and his family
If failure is a tragedy mankind can not escape
Muslims are distinguished for the perpetual success

Failure strikes at all ages
Children fail, we have mercy on them
Elderly ones fail, we learn from them
Adults fail, we must not be like them

Allah Azza Wa Jall gave us an unbreakable rope to cling to
O Allah pray on Muhammad and on the Family of Muhammad
The one Allah Azza Wa Jall entrusted every single human being
Up to the Day of Intercession, that most terrible day

HEEDLESSNESS
 
 
There is the kind of man who makes of it a dress
It is written in the book of Muhammad
Peace be upon him and his family
That we ought to wear our best dresses at every instant

You would say animals in the animal world pay no heed
You would think the inanimate objects are without consciousness
Allah Azza Wa Jall revealed to His Beloved, peace be upon him and his family, that
Those who were admonished but paid no heed are worst than animals,
 
Heedlessness should not be considered a sin
For a sin is a sin, but heedlessness is more than just a sin
Heedlessness is a chief ill
A strong root of sins and a chief evil

Muhammad will say, peace be upon him and his family
That though they had the book, they paid no heed
For what they thought within them regarding the Book
Their eyes are closed to the sunlight
 
Warning repeats itself, each for a different issue
Nothing opens his eyes to the Remembrance of Allah Azza Wa Jall
Which is Muhammad , peace be upon him and his family
Thus punishment falls upon the wicked, always

VIGOUR
 
 
Vigour is a praiseworthy characteristic
Allah Azza Wa Jall is the Lord of the characteristics and attributes
So that an attribute of Allah is that He is vigorous
Allah Azza Wa Jall whose religion is Islam is vigorous

The religion in Allah’s presence is Islam
He adorned the Messenger with beautiful characteristics
Peace be upon him and his family, the beloved of Allah
Is as the Beloved, vigorous, peace be upon him and his family
 
Vigour is intelligence and vision of His work
If you believe that all comes from Him then you see Him
For you see His act and you believe He it is that does it
It is the Tawheed, the belief in the unique agent of actions
 
Those who are devoid of vigour don’t see
They don’t know that there is a unique agent of actions
His act is that Muhammad is His beloved, peace be upon him and his family
The weak ones can never see, it is not permitted
 
Vigour is that of the angels, like Jibril and Mika’il, peace on them
At Badr, fighting fiercely for the Companion to see
Muhammad guided him, peace be upon and his family
Vigorous men of a religion that demands vigour

HARMONY
 
 
See how beautifully the universe is moulded
The void as it seems is not void, it contains pathways
Scientists of the world know there are hiddens in the void
As to the sky, it is not blue, but your eyes make it blue
 
He merges the day into the night and the night into the day
As found in the book of Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family
In other words the earth is round, though it seems it is flat
Such harmony, when the round and the flat becomes one, to one’s eyes
 
Just like the universe is moulded in harmony, one must live in harmony
Muhammad the beloved of Allah, peace be upon him and his family insisted on it
Excess of any kind is not only wrong, it is evil
But take from every flower and make honey, like bees
 
All is harmony, the Qur’an and the Hadiths are harmony
The Qur’an says that the words of Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family
The sayings of Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family are revelations
To the Qur’an we add 10 volumes of books of Hadiths
 
Allah Azza Wa Jall showered His favours on the creation
When He created them, as He decided to create them
For Allah Azza Wa Jall does not create anything imperfect,
But everything is created perfect and balanced by the Perfect Creator

PRECISION

 
On greater levels there are no such things as minor errors
Be it in sciences of the world or the select sciences of the religion
For a minor error, the deviation from the trajectory can be great
We know of a great virtuous man who would always reply “I do not know”
 
The Messenger of Allah is a Messenger to the Worlds
Peace be upon him and his family, his speech can only be very precise
Peace be upon him and his family, like a verse of the Qur’an is very precise
Else Allah would not order us to ponder on it over and over again
 
He has counted them all and numbered them  allexactly
As said in Surah Maryam, and what would it be for humans
That which is in the heart translates into the bodily acts
One of precision in his speaking extremely firm when falling upon the enemies
 
It was argued before the great grandson of Muhammad
Peace be upon him and his family, the great Imam, Jafar as Sadiq
That those of the household of Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family
Had superiority, from Allah, and so we feel the power of their words
 
Generally  speaking we do not speak very precisely
It is not the way of purity to speak directly, bluntly
We speak softly and we extend our mercy, as grateful ones
That being precision of understanding and precision of expression

To Trust
 

Known all his life for his trustworthiness
The master the Prophet, peace be upon him and his family
In his book, peace be upon him and his family
Allah Azza Wa Jall says about the Messengers they are trustworthy

Not enough that he comes in and moves to Muhammad
Peace be upon him and his family, this man wearing white
with his hairs black is one trustworthy
once, was seen written on his forehead “Jibril, the trustworthy messenger”

This is what Allah Azza Wa Jall and Muhammad expect
Peace be upon him and his family, that we be trustworthy
Not cheating Allah or His Beloved, peace be upon him and his family
Not cheating Islam or the Muslims or all mankind

Those who fail those who trust them
One can assume that one is trusted
For one even trusts Allah Azza Wa Jall who makes the hearts beat
The vileness of the betrayer can not be explained or described

To be trusted is dangerous, unless you possess great strength
Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family emphasized its seriousness
To trust is an act of love, pride, generosity,  and courage
The hypocrites betray with agility, their punishments will be unmatched

EXPERIENCE
 
 

This the Chinese they say
that as you think so you become
because thought leads to character and habit, after process
This is false, it’s not the thought but the personality

It has been said about the Beloved of Allah Azza Wa Jall
Peace be upon him and his family, that he taught
Peace be upon him and his family that experience unveils
But what is behind the veil not everyone can bear the sight

It is not what you did or who you did it with
It certainly is not the number of times you repeated it
It is the personality within, that even children become experts
In acquiring skills and ability, to the exclusion of others

Some acquire useful experience, others acquire negative experience
For experience without success is not useful
The Beloved of Allah Azza Wa Jall, peace be upon him and his family
taught that humans will keep running, until one day they die

There is experience which is neither useful nor negative
For to work is a must for the Muslim
If anything it is courteousness to Allah Azza Wa Jall
And gratefulness, out of which one’s personality evolves

BOREDOM
 
The Companion of Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family
Would only give advice once a week
The people wished he would talk to them more often
He did not because he feared to bore them
 
One may be bored because of excessive worship
For instance, excessive learning of knowledge of religion
But that is not the case beyond the worship
One does not tire of Allah and Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family
 
It is only natural that humans need change
Something delightful soon turns into something painful
It is one of the reasons of the things in the world
Things change and evolve simply because humans need change

How can it be before Allah Azza Wa Jall who sees the sinners
He, The Lord of Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family
Never gets bored of them, the sinners
He sees every detail at every instant and punishes swiftly
 
He who believes in the Last Day should speak only good
Muhammad taught this, peace be upon him and his family
Muhammad peace be upon him and his family, never stopped teaching good
If you must be bored, still be restricted to the knowledge of religion

REST

Beware of too much sleeping
For too much sleeping harms the body
If sleeping harms the body then it harms the soul
And if sleeping harmed the body, the soul was harmed, undoubtedly

Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family) was accustomed to night prayers
So that his blessed feet were swollen on its account
Peace be upon him and his family who had other duties during the day
Yet he prayed at night though all his sins were forgiven, as has been said

There is a Day that will come without a doubt
The duration of which is 50 000 years
Any rest for any second in this world,
Will yield chastisement and sorrow on that Day

Great Ulama of the Nation of Muhammad
Peace be upon him and his family, were seen in dreams after their deaths
Though all their lives were spent in worship of Allah
All that remains of rewards were those of end of night prayers

We need to rest so as to go through the day
So that rest for us must yield rewards
If you are destined to the Garden, you will be prepared
That place where no one rests, which explains your vigour and your energy

EVIL
 

Evil takes on many forms, not just 3 forms
For truth is one and the rest and falsehood
Likewise beyond the 3 evils, there are 3000 other evils
But it all originates from the 3 main evils

Evil is doing wrong to yourself by cheating Allah Azza Wa Jall and Muhammad
Peace be upon him and his family, The people of Muhammad
Peace be upon him and his family, Must know that that is the greater evil
Then comes cheating people and inflicting harm more or less great

Shaytan the great deceiver revolves around 3 evils
One’s laziness, one’s deception and cheating and one’s self sufficiency
Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family taught to fight the three armies of Shaytan
So as to fill one’s heart with love of him, peace be upon him and his family

Some evils when they rise high indicate st**idity
The greater your intelligence, the lesser your evil
Muhammad, peace be upon him and his family taught this
Saying whoso surpasses you in intellect will always work more righteousness than you

Evil is not what people say and is quite often what they don’t say
The Muslim is courageous, not complacent to evil
The Muslim is intelligent, recognizing nobility of purpose
The rest is not important, rejecting the 3 evils is what is important

IMPRESSIVENESS
 
We worship Allah Azza Wa Jall to get our hearts purified
Purity was the reason for it, if the worship was sincere
Dedication to one’s ideal is the reason for misguidance
Out of which one worships someone else whom he loves
 
Muhammad the beloved of God, peace be upon him and his family
Grieved and felt sorrow out of fear for his nation
He warned us repeatedly, peace be upon him and his family
Not to love the world but to love Allah Azza Wa Jall only
 
How many dangers does the human being face from dawn to sunset ?
There are so many ways out of which one enslaves another
Who worships him, as he is impressed by him
The impressive one, who is either a liar or a coward
 
There are good impressive ones, the first of whom is Muhammad
Peace be upon him and his family, the beloved of God
If they put the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left hand
I am still not going to desist from my teachings

If you love Allah, follow me and Allah will love you
Whoso loves scientists becomes a scientist
Whoso eschews evil becomes a leader to people
And instills fear in the hearts of Shaytan and his soldiers

Islamic Poetry

“Effaced are the abodes,
brief encampments and long-settled ones;
At Mina the wilderness has claimed
Mount Ghawl and Mount Rijam.
The torrent channels of Mount Rayyan,
Their teachings are laid bare,
Preserved as surely as inscriptions are
preserved in rock,
Dung-darkened patches over which,
since they were peopled, years elapsed,
Their profane mouths and sacred ones
have passed away.
They were watered by the rain
the spring stars bring,
And on them fell the rain of thunderclouds,
downpour and drizzle...”

Essay on a poem by Malay poet Hamzah of Barus. I ran across this in my reading and thought its mystical focus an interesting compliment to our typically empirical content.
