  1. As you shed 
    Those warm tears,
    Crying for the past 
    Sinful years,
    You just can’t utter 
    A comprehensible sentence
    Yet; truthful is your repentance.
    Is that vibration
    You feel
    As you fall
    On bended knees,
    Before He who spread darkness 
    Into the depth of the seas.
    Is the sensation 
    You get
    After a prostration
    You make
    In true contrition
    For the sake 
    Of forgiveness, 
    From He Who Inspired the bees.
    Subhaaan Al Ghafour!

  2. I’m the slave sinful,

    For the blessings of Allah; 

    So ungrateful!


    I’m the slave sinful,

    Of my blindness;

    Not that regretful!


    If those slaves, so humble 

    And never boastful 

    Turn to you, whom, 

    O Lord; will I turn to?


    I’m the slave sinful,

    For the blessings of Allah; 

    So ungrateful!


    I’m the slave sinful,

    Of my blindness;

    Not that regretful!


    Forgive me, Ya Rabb!

  3. The nearness of Allah A'azza Wa Jal is not easily reached or attained! You might spend your whole life time trying and doing your best to get nearer but as long as the love of Dunya is still rooted inside your heart you will never be able to feel The Divine Embrace!

  4. To realize that you are sinning is to confirm that you are an impotent, weak imperfect creature; unable to have a complete control over its senses, appetites and desires! The problem becomes greater when we sin intentionally, regardless of the presence of Allah Ar Raqeeb! No we are not angels! But we must bear in mind that Allah A'azza Wa Jal is WATCHING us and if we are not ashamed of our selves, then we will certainly keep on doing that which doesn't please Allah and in this case, we will be the losers!

  5. Your kingdom is light upon light, 
    Wide open; to those who fight,
    Against their nafs; with all their might!

    Your kingdom is light upon light, 
    Vast and majestic; in the sight,
    Of those who sacrifice their desires,
    For the sake of a prostration in the night!

  6. Man is a social creature; we are inclined to communicate with each other and we strive to establish all possible links with our surroundings. Whatever the barriers, we always want to know how “the other” thinks and how he conceives of this world so that we may communicate and create that bridge which we want to have between us. In this respect, translation of scripts and books enable us to understand “the other” and to learn the maximum about him. In fact translation becomes a “key to the Universal Mind” in that it makes it possible for us to understand the philosophies and the beliefs of nations we thought we could never ever know. All the works of philosophers, scientists, men of letters and religious thinkers have been made accessible thanks to translation. We thus, became aware of the way all the most influential figures in human history used to think. We appreciated their work and we learned a lot of interesting things about a given civilization, a given philosophy or a given era.
    When we were studying translation at the university, I remember that our teacher used to say that “translation is an act of killing”. He explained that a “word to word” translation is certainly not accepted for it will lead to “a non-sense text” and that when we translate an “original text” into a “target text” through the use of the semantic approach, we somehow “kill” the original text. In fact, we are unwillingly implicated in the action of translation for we subjectively come up to the text with our own understanding and our personal interpretation. We may therefore, wrongly interpret the text and thus; “kill or deform its original sense”. We cannot be sure, at one hundred percent, that our translation is definitely objective and correct. However, the translation is generally accepted when we do our best to stick to the meaning which is semantically conveyed.
    It goes without saying that- to some extent- a text is more understood by the reader who speaks the language of the written text. In fact, he gives it all what it deserves and he has a better knowledge of its real value. As far as I am concerned, I only enjoy the writings of La Martine and Victor Hugo in French and I savor the poetry of Mahmoud Darwich only in Arabic, and I cannot read Shakespeare and appreciate his works but in English. Alhamdulillah, I have that privilege to speak the three languages as do a great number of people in my country. 
    The great majority of Arabs like poetry and consider that it is the most beautiful way of expression that man has ever created. Poetry is actually, very typical to the Arabs, they like it so much and they strongly believe in the exaltation of the senses through the magic of poetry. When Al Qur’an was revealed to our Prophet Salla Allahu A’alayhi Wa Sallam, It was a miracle both in its language form and its consequential signs, It was communicated to Muhammad Salla Allahu A’alayhi Wa Sallam the illiterate Prophet and it brought about the destruction of all the fake religious believes that the Kuffar used to cherish and protect. It came as a Devine message from Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala to the whole of mankind and at the same time, it challenged the Kuffar and made an end to their so called “poetical supremacy”. It was neither poetry nor prose; it was something new, something beautiful, something divinely orchestrated and something that could never ever be imitated. Thanks to the exceptional efforts made by Muslim translators, Al Qur’an was revealed to the world and its light spread through their extraordinary work. The reward they will get is certainly immeasurable for they have worked for the enlightenment of the world and have managed to give a tremendous advance to Dawah which is central in Islam. Now Alhamdulillah, thanks to them, all the nations of the world can read Al Qur’an and understand what it is all about through their “Interpretations of meaning”, but the beauty of Al Qur’an is such that even some of the people who did not understand Arabic have become Muslims simply after hearing it being recited. 
    Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala made it possible for every human being to understand His message and this is the unexplained; Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala Guides whom He Wills.

    As humans, we always tend to appreciate all that is related to the persons we love and we usually make every effort in order to please them and to get close to them no matter what complicated the task could be. A Chinese girl learned French because she fell in love with a Muslim who couldn’t speak any other language except “la langue de Molière”. A tremendous effort was made by this girl so that she can communicate with the person whom she loves. This is natural; every human being who loves would do the same. This is what happens to most of us when we love someone; it is typical to the human nature but what if the subject was about “Divine Love”? 

    The question here is “Would we make an effort for the sake of Allah? Would we transcend our infirmity and learn Arabic?” 

    “Indeed, We have sent it down as an Arabic Qur'an that you might understand” [Yusuf-12:2].
    This is the Divine Choice; it’s not yours, it’s not mine. Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala chose the Arabic language to transmit his message and the wisdom behind this choice is certainly difficult for us to grasp. 
    Therefore, learning Arabic becomes
    A necessity; 
    A must:

  7. Like a royal eagle, 
    Stretch your wings and fly!
    Like a royal eagle, 
    Pierce the cloudy sky!
    Transcend the futility of Dunya…
    Above the crowded zone, 
    Be constantly high!

    Like a royal eagle, 
    Stretch your wings and fly!
    Like a royal eagle, 
    Pierce the cloudy sky!
    See the world through different eyes!
    Don’t be lured by the shape of the external size!

    Like a royal eagle, 
    Stretch your wings and fly!
    Like a royal eagle, 
    Pierce the cloudy sky!
    I recovered sight,
    At the threshold of Kingdom-Light!

    I saw the trees…
    And felt the breeze…

  8. In every circularity, in every rounded or oval form; there is a center. In fact, in everything; there is a core! Neither northward, nor southward or westward! At least five times a day, we are directed eastward! Towards Makkah! To this direction, to this specific spot we turn, at least five times a day! Imagine the number of people around the world; all the Muslims prostrating themselves before their Lord and making Sujood in the same direction! A distinction, a peculiarity and a sign of unity! We are like One Single Body and we are summoned to direct ourselves to Al Masjid Al Haram in order to perform our Salaat!

    "To Allah belongs the east and the west. He guides whom He wills to a straight path."

    Like the heart within the chest, Makkah and all what it symbolizes is the core of the planet; the soul of the Ummah! Truth is there! This is the right direction! You won’t lose your way! You won’t be astray! “Indeed, the first House [of worship] established for mankind was that at Makkah - blessed and a guidance for the worlds.”


      “Sin-city” exists, it does implement the principals of the devil, it celebrates moral deprivation and it commemorates materialistic triumph! The devil is there! His throne is there!

      “Sin-city” is the emblem of rebellion; a revolt against the Message sent from up above! “We are free!” “No one has the right to dictate his will upon us!” “No one will take our freedom from us!”

      Immorality, lack of essence…”Sin-city” has been fed by the evil which exists within man! All those whispers, inciting him to act against the will of His Lord, have shaped the architecture of the city! Now he is walled up, entangled by his own blindness!  

    Yes we are free! Of course, no one has the right to take our freedom from us! Of course! But we were not brought to the world just for the sake of fulfilling some selfish desire, or walking arrogantly on the land of The Master and praising his enemy; our enemy; the devil!


      Allah has made the path clear for us! He Subhaanhau Wa Ta’ala Has shown us the way! It’s crystal clear! Success is in the direction that He Himself, has chosen for us! Success is in the establishment of His Deen! Follow your nafs, listen to the whispers of the shaytaan and you’ll be lost!  

  9. They're sharing pictures of their faces:
    How they were "Before"
    And how they've become "After"!
    I KNOW that BEAUTY is in other places;
    Like the HEART, the SOUL and the CORE!
    And that only these will count,
    In the REALITY of the hereafter!

    Go, embellish your heart and forget about your skin!
    Go, seek the REAL! Join the caravan of those who SHALL win!
