My “Fahri”

May 19, 2008 at 4:51 pm 27 comments

My Fahri is waiting for me,
Just as I am waiting for him.
My Fahri preserves himself & lowers his gaze
Till he meets me & be amazed.

My Fahri speaks gently
and advises much.
My Fahri restricts his dating-fun
Till he meets me, his beloved one.

My Fahri fears Allah
and never miss prayers.
My Fahri cries over his past sins at night
Till I come by & make him feel light.

My Fahri loves the Prophet
and tries to emulate him.
My Fahri will take my breath away
in real life, just as in my dream.

My Fahri never forgets his siwak
and tries to always have wudhu’.
My Fahri treats the sunnah as wajib
& leaves the subha for fear of making a slip.

My Fahri will be shy
when we finally meet.
And make me blush
& I’ll stare at my feet.

My Fahri will love me for my efforts today
and forget my past as I forget his.
My Fahri & I will build a bond
with parents’ blessings, 2 rings, & our first kiss.

My Fahri will whisper sweet words to me
that has never been heard by another girl before.
My Fahri & I will create memories
of jemaah prayers, qiyamulail, & more.

My Fahri will read the Qur’an to me when I am down
& I will read to him when he asks me to.
My Fahri, my Imam, in this life & the next,
Do you know that I am missing you?

My Fahri will understand my dreams & goals
and will support me in my quest for ma’rifatulLah
My Fahri does not distract & obstruct me
but increases my love for the Prophet & Allah.

My Fahri will always greet me with a smile
even if he’s had a bad day at the office.
And I in turn will adorn myself & wait at the door
smelling nice & looking good & ready with a kiss.

My Fahri will share with me his deepest secrets,
his many dreams & biggest fears.
I will be his wife & best friend,
his comforter, his recharge & wiper of tears.

My Fahri & I will take turns
to wake the other up for tahajjud.
My Fahri will still call me gorgeous
when I’m not looking too good.

My Fahri will never raise his voice at me
but advise & admonish me firmly.
My Fahri will know I cry easily
and will cry with me or wipe my tears for me.

My dear Fahri, I hope you know I’ll always need you
despite my notorious independent streak.
This girl will love you more than all her books
that has made her into this geek.

My Fahri will love my parents as if they were his
and I will care for his parents like they were mine.
My Fahri reads widely, thinks deeply & prepares for the next Life
but never neglects me in his dua, like he is always in mine.

My Fahri & I will love for Allah
we’ll make a great tag team.
My Fahri is waiting for me,
just as I am waiting for him.


Hold your horses, don’t get excited. Fahri is just a borrowed name from the book (no, not the movie yucks) “Ayat-ayat Cinta”. And this is just a dream & fantasy. InsyaAllah, Allah gives me better than I have described. :)

    wow wat a brilliant poem! so ayat2 cinta has indeed turned you into a ‘berangan-angan’ youth ehh haha.

    Hopefully u find ur own Fahri one day insya-Allah, haha and im not fit for an Aishah lei. As such i think i’ll just concentrate on fighting my nafs and serving Allah rather than think of marriage yet :P

    And im sick of talking about marriage wargh dis nikah gantung article is killing me!

  • 2. alfaqeer  |  May 20, 2008 at 7:56 am

    Hasanul Arifin: Eh excuse me. I’m no berangan-angan youth okay! Haha.

    Yea insyaAllah. :) Haha yeah fighting nafs & serving Allah is a lifelong process. Marriage is part of life. Even after marriage also still must fight nafs & serve Allah. But yeah, I get what you mean. For now, yes, these two take precedence over marriage definitely.

    What does not kill you, makes you stronger. Eh? Haha. Macam gitu la bunyi quote dia. Okay okay I shall never mention marriage to you anymore. Haha.

    hidayah: Don’t worry darling. I’m going to sound like a makcik here but “kalau dah jodoh, tak ke mana”. Hehe. Indeed, Allah replaces what He takes away with something better. :) Always trust in that. Allah knows best. You’re a beautiful, beautiful Muslimah my love. I bet you’ll only attract the best Muslims too. Seriously one, I mean it with all my heart! Don’t worry okay. *hugs*

    masyaAllah, somehow i’m in tears reading ur poems..cuz its the same wish i had. Your poem sound soo sweet. May Allah gives us better than we hope for…Insya-Allah.

  • 14. alfaqeer  |  October 28, 2008 at 4:52 pm

    Siti: InsyaAllah.. We have to remind ourselves also that nobody is perfect and to have someone fit the poem is difficult and we should be more lenient. Haha. The Fahri in my poem sounds so perfect. While its good to have ideals, its also good to look through human eyes.

    And its even better to make sure we are deserving of a Fahri in the first place!

  • 27. alfaqeer  |  August 25, 2009 at 3:40 pm

    It means ‘my pride’ or ‘my honour’.
