Gratitude and Optimism – By Waseem Alkelani

Islam teaches us to be grateful
Islam teaches us to be optimistic

True believers are always grateful
for every single day they live

They are always grateful
and that’s why they are always joyful

They thank their creator for everything
Whenever they eat and whenever they drink

They are always optimistic
About life and they are also realistic

To them every day is a new day
Full of aims and positive things to say

They also look at the bright side
In any problem to set it right

If you ask them “How is life?”
They will say “We thank Allah and we shall survive”

This is the reason they always smile
And they are always willing to take the extra mile

In spreading this optimism
And trying to fight and eliminate pessimism

This is the source of happiness in their hearts
This is the source of peace in their minds

Islam encourages us to be like this
And not to be the opposite or even less

Gratitude and Optimism are good for you
They are two things that you should do

PEACE BE UPON HIM – by Leudrita Mustafa

Ya Allah, Ar Rahman, Ar Rahim
Make him appear in my dream
Let him talk to me for hours,
The dearly beloved Prophet of ours.

Muhammad is an example for all mankind,
The beauty of his soul, could be seen even by the blind.
Allah made him caring,
He made him loving,
He made him honest,
He made him modest.
He gave him the most beautiful of manners.

He never gave up
Even at the hardest times
He faced a lot of challenges
But Allah was always in his heart and mind.

Peace be upon him
Ya Allah Rabbil alamin
He taught us Your way
May we InshaAllah meet in Jannah one day.

Oh Allah! – By Maqsood Ali

Oh my Allah!

I’m a toy of soil,
Which is created by you,

Oh my Allah!

Your mercy gave me the spirit,
And my breath runs at your command,
I am alive by your grace my Lord,

Oh my Allah!
You are the first and you are the last,
Only you are manifest and you are inward,

Oh my Allah!
Give me another mercy,
Take off all my rings,

Oh my Allah!
Please give me your color,
Because your color is the best in the universe,

A Religion of Love and Forgiveness – By Waseem Alkelani

Islam is a religion of love
Islam is a religion of peace

It teaches us to forgive
It teaches us to perceive

Islam preaches us to be considerate
And not to judge people instead

It preaches us to be patient and wise
And for fights not to rise

If you listen to your brothers
If you understand their problems

If you speak nicely to them
If you express your sympathy with them

You will be rewarded by Allah
With peace and Jannah

You will be rewarded in life first
It will be like the results of a test

You will win people’s hearts
And you shall win Allah’s gifts

Allah shall give you peace inside
Allah can make your life bright

In every situation, try to do these things
Remember that hatred is one of the terrible sins

To love is an advantage, not many can do
If people can forgive, why can’t you?

The reading of Quran – By Leudrita Mustafa

How long has it been
Since I read Quran?
Was it last month,
Or since Ramadan?
I have placed it somewhere on my shelf,
And I keep reminding myself,
I should read again
To feel free, from all this pain.
My heart craves to read God’s word,
But I catch myself getting busy with this world.

The Quran’s cover has turned dusty,
And my soul has turned rusty.
When I finally pick it up
There is nothing that can stop me,
From finally feeling free,
Because all the words are dedicated to me.
The words are dedicated to you too,
As long as you read it with your heart,
Not only going through.

Repentance – by Leudrita Mustafa

This.
This is the sign you have been looking for
REPENT now!
Do not wait any more.

Tomorrow.
Who promised you tomorrow?
The day is today
Do not wait to be filled with more sorrow.

It doesn’t matter how many days have passed by,
From the last time you fell in sujood with tears in your eyes,
He is always there,
Waiting for you to come back to Him,
It is not too late, as long as you are still living
Because He is Al Ghaffar, the Repeatedly Forgiving

He forgives, as long as you repent,
So REPENT! Before you turn to dust.
Repent, because this dunya is nothing,
But an illusion filled with lust.

Where Does Peace Lies – By Waheed Hassan

Islam paints the picture of Peace
Muslims spread the words of Peace
Quran promotes the lessons of Peace
God gives the orders of making Peace
And modern world portrays Muslims; the enemy of Peace

Islamophobia has restricted thine minds
Thine realm views it as the frighting humans
Islam and peace prevail together
Hold in memory and sail together

Peace lies in harmony, love, and unity
Cannot begin until all, end up enmity
Man determines the tones by his society
Religion does not support anything biasedly

Look for peace before thine interests
Follow the Lord’s rules to existence
Hold humanity before the beliefs
Peace will prevail like the schemes

Oh my Allah! – By Maqsood Ali

Oh my Allah!

I’m a toy of soil,
Which is created by you,

Oh my Allah!

Your mercy gave me the spirit,
And my breath runs at your command,
I am alive by your grace my Lord,

Oh my Allah!
You are the first and you are the last,
Only you are manifest and you are inward,

Oh my Allah!
Give me another mercy,
Take off all my rings,

Oh my Allah!
Please give me your color,
Because your color is the best in the universe,

A gift for you – By Waseem Alkelani

Islam is a word
but It has a big meaning for believes around the world

It is simply a lifestyle
that you need to think about for a while

About it you can read and study
And follow the path of those who were lucky

Who managed to realize the truth of this light
By leaving hatred and spite

We say that it is a style of life
Because Islam teaches us how to live thankfully in this life

It teaches us love, passion, respect and forgiveness
It teaches us other qualities such as humbleness

I invite you to read about this religion
And I am sure that it will get your attention

I am writing these words
For you to open these doors

Because I do care about you
I bring the whole world to you

Women Rights Given by God – By Maryam Nasrullah

Rights for People
Become the voice of People
Liberalism is urging feminism
Campaigns of rights: Campaigns of Womanism

Liberals hold primary rights; theirs discovery
Rights of women lie in society from the century
Rights of Livings furnished by God
Girls are a blessing; told by the Lord

Let them breathe; don’t bury their identity
Will establish thy world and grant felicity
Give them Right of life and the property
Granted by God, Quran, Islam, and Society

Prophet saved them from perishing
Rights were given to make it cherishing
Rights of women- not an act of liberality
Came as their elementary right of sustainability
