Alhamdulillah! All praises be to Allah Most High!

We are in the month of Ramadhan alhamdulillah! I cannot thank Him enough for allowing me to live to meet this blessed month again. May these tears of happiness be testimony for me on the Last Day. Rushing off soon so just wanted to share this piece that I wrote on Friday.

One day of servitude
First to Allah, then to satan
My act of sujud
First to Allah, then to satan

One hadith read, one bad word uttered
A dollar donated, a Muslim slandered

My hijab on my head, a hijab over my heart
salawat on my lips, my eyes still blind
Tears flow out of repentance
Yet my sins keep increasing with time

My prayer beads makes its rounds
Yet my mind wanders when I pray
I spend a day to iktikaf
But I obey and do what satan say

Ya Allah, Ya Rahman, Ya Rahim
Have pity on this slave of Yours
whose deeds are little & sins are many
whose heart is broken, whose faith is shaky,
whose tears are running, whose desires are raging,
whose hope is depleting, whose iman is wavering,
whose love for You and Your Prophet is a lie!

How could I love when I do not know?
How could I say I do when I disobey so?
How dare I call myself a Muslim,
when my deeds are done for other than Him?
What love is this that I mistreat the lover?
What servitude is this that I let down the Creator?

I’m desperate for guidance, I’m starving for Your love
Cure me of my spiritual illness & beautify my character
Purify my intentions & purify my heart
Grant me true & sincere love for You and Your Prophet salallahu alaihi wassalam
A love that will sustain till the Life to come.

Ramadhan Mubarak to one & all! May Allah forgive all our sins and bless us ceaselessly so that we attain taqwa and ikhlas and redha and hikmah and meet next year’s Ramadhan insyaAllah! Allahumma Amin!
