Divine-Clemency:

Standard

When I speak, I’m so weak…
…I cry & tears reach the Sky.

My spirits get so low…
…My blood flows slow.

My self-esteem ain’t always what it seems…
…My lack of productivity taints my dreams.

However, in the darkest and longest hours of the Night…
…Knowing that Allah is my Lord makes everything alright.

I implore Him, for His mercy, although I’m so unworthy of His grace…
…How can I dare to think that I’m deserving to see His Noble-Face?

He gave me Guidance, while I gave Him my sins in return…
…Yet, He still protects me, not wanting me in Hell, to burn.

But, I have to want heavenly salvation for myself…
…I must discover the gems & jewels of true wealth.

I always ponder upon receiving Mercy, in spite of always being ever sinful…
…Allah truly loves those who turn to Him, I cannot be any less than grateful.

Ramadhan is Our chance!!!

Standard

It’s the perfect endeavor to start anew.

A way to escape tests we go through.

Ramadhan allows us to improve constantly.

Ramadhan gives us the true beauty of mercy.

What Allah descends, via blessings, cannot be matched.

All our actions are more valued, more closely watched.

Through each & every day, from one sunset to the next…

…we are granted extra chances, to be better than the rest.

Though stressful & tiring, it’s among the greatest things…

…there are no compensations, for what Ramadhan brings.

We hunger and restrain, all-day…

…we pray & seek mercy, all-night.

Ramadhan has been bestowed upon us…

…it’s a cleansing, when we don’t do right.

The gates of Paradise are opened, to their widest…

…the gates of Hell sealed & locked with iron plates.

We wish to be of those who arrive to Ramadhan, wanting freedom, from our own error…

…we hope that our sins be erased, that we not be punished for them on the Day of Terror.

My Desperate-Outcry to my Noble-Savior!!!

Standard

Oh…Allah!!! My heart is in pain, it hurts.
I know that, in your sight, I’m the worse.

You have given me my faith, and correct-guidance, while I still rebel.
I’m so afraid to meet You, because, I feel that I’ll go straight to Hell.

I know that disobeying You is not at all in my interest.
And, I know that I have no excuse to not do my best.

It is, clearly, myself and not You, to blame.
My weak religiosity is a sham and a shame.

I’m so weak, You are so strong & am fully aware that I do wrong.
But, I still sin; and, I know that I won’t get away with this, for long.

My only chance is for You to overlook my disgusting disobedience to You.
I need You to give me the strength to commit and keep Your covenant true.

Why You’ve chosen to preserve me, while I disobey You, for so long, I may never know.
I can only think & speculate, that, in spite of my impetuous behavior, You still love me so.

I must Love You in return & stop rebelling; be dutiful to You only, to start caring.
My reckless actions are unacceptable; but, I know I can change & I am capable.

It’s up to me, because You have given me the choice & tools to get better.
You have given me the abilities to survive in any terrain and in any weather.

It is my obligation, to You, to improve, and to always move forward.
