O Muslims, Change Your life!
ABC of parenting

O Muslims, Change Your life!

By Shahnawaz Khan

 

Faith is a state of mind, I’ve heard that Faith is blind.
I think it’s true to some extent, Though this condition is potent.
Faith in Allah’s existence, Comes through diligent persistence.
Allah has made this Mankind, And in His Laws, we shall find,
True Guidance and a Way of Life, For our lifetime, it should suffice.
There is a life after Death, The truth we shall know, in our last breath,
But it would be too late to make amends,
Hence Allah in his Mercy has sent,
His book of Knowledge, the Quran,
Which holds the eternal Message to Man.
Our Prophet showed us its use, Leaving no doubt, and simple to choose.
We must open our heart out-wide, And accept the Truth, without Pride
The Truth is, Obey Allah and follow Islam Do not open the door to Satan.
Be truthful and be kind, Firm in action, healthy in mind.
Open The Book, Read and Understand,
What people did and how the Devil planned.
There have been many before us, To whom Allah sent His Messengers.
They did not heed Allah’s warning in time,
They paid the price, they paid the fine.
Prayer is incumbent, Charity too, You are the blessed, among the few.
Live in Peace and spread the Message, This life is but a small passage.
Your actions and thoughts will decide,
Reign in your Anger, control your pride.
In Heaven or in Hell, will be the final Abode,
Be careful, it is recorded what you scored.
On the Day of Judgement, we shall stand, Raised from the dead.
Those before, those behind.
No father can help his children, Nor mother or any other relation.
What you did on Earth, will clearly show,
What choice you took, which way did you go.
No excuse will get you off the hook, “We had already given you The Book”.
But we did not read it, is no excuse, So wake up before you lose.
Allah’s Mercy is greater than His Anger,
Do not break the rules, do not slander.
You are the chosen ones, the blessed, O’ you, the Ummah of Muhammad.
Do not let him down, change your life, Today is the Time, not the Afterlife.....
