Friendship with God – By Hamish Dean

Friendship with the one and only God
would it be obedience
or be it kindness with love
it is not about you or me at all
it is about God

he draws near to ones he loves
worship day and night
he will become more beloved
than you to yourself
and you will find yourself transformed

that is the meaning of Islam
not anything but growth
and be in union with the one you love
it is but a mercy from God that you exist
and can be friends with the most beloved

neglect not your chance with anger
and bad words as he is all hearing
and hates evil more than all
give your time and life and live
a righteous life of worship of God

Don’t give into the temptation of wealth
As God loves the poor and austere in life
Don’t spend time is luxury and comfort
God loves the one who avoids worship of wealth
Be loyal to God and seek his friendship
He will repay with loyalty and love.

A strict monotheist – By Hamish Dean

be a strict monotheist
do not give into polytheism
do not even say there might be
or I will try to find another God

be a strict monotheist
guard your tongue
get angry not
and curse not yourself by saying wrong

be a strict monotheist
speak no evil to God
by attributing to him wrong
seek refuge in him from the most wrong

be a strict monotheist
and repent to God
as he hears
and can forgive all wrong.

Yearning for heaven – By Hamish Dean

Shed feathers of sorrow
Grow wings of love
Some waiting for hair to grow
Some worshiping God
I fear for the day I fly not

Day will come worry not
You will find God the most kind
Just hope you made faith more pure
And worshiped God enough

He is the most forgiving one
Fly and do good for life is not a miserable one
And be glad that you love God
For life has ups and downs
Heaven is for the pious ones

Islamic knowledge – By Hamish Dean

Sell your cleverness and buy some awe,

then knowledge you will be traded for no price at all,

but when you are rich you will still be a beggar,

blaming the thief once your friend called time the nagger,

but don’t give up forever young is science,

pursue knowledge to the grave if you must,

for even if the thief leaves you utterly bankrupt,

your awe will remain in humanities heart forever incorrupt

 

Forever is not what humanity is,

And if time leaves you bankrupt did you have time to worship God?

Or did you go corrupt?

Will you be remembered as a fool or a knowledgeable person by your acts?

 

Trade your worldly life for awe of God,

Then Islamic knowledge you will be given for no price at all,

but when you are rich in knowledge you will still be a poor person by choice,

as God loves those who are simple in life,

God is near, so pursue Islamic knowledge forever if you must,

for even if the life of the world leaves you utterly bankrupt,

There is heaven for those who believe in God,

And your worship will remain with God forever incorrupt.

 

Which is better remembrance of you by humanity or God?

And which is better the remembrance of humanity or God by you?

There should not be a distinction between science and Islam,

As both are from God, the awe-inspiring clever one, the creator of man.

A story about time – By Hamish Dean

Time…

          Time, time, don’t have time

          much of it running away all the time

Then worship the one who created time

             and ask for time to have more time

             to worship the Creator of all that exists including time

 

Time, time, Have more time

           tell me how to have even more time

Time is for worship not for having time

               Time is precious to all, all the time

               Have the time to trust that you have the time

               then worship God all the time

 

Wait all the time?

Time, time all the time

               people make the mistake

               and don’t worship all the time

               to not have time for He who is wealthiest in time

               the one who gives and takes all the time

 

Dime, dime, don’t have a dime

           I worshiped till I ran out of all the dimes

I will give the dime and the time

               come with me we will have a good time all the time

I have to get more dimes, but I have the time

           I am falling behind everyone at this time

 

you are ahead, and you are wealthy

               Now God is your friend and his is all dimes and time

but how am I going to get any dimes

           I am not wealthy I am dirt poor all the time

be patient now you have time to worship God

               soon you will be wealthy to spend on worshiping God

 

But I don’t need money to worship God I need money to have time for wait

           I have enough money and time to worship God but how about

           I don’t know things of the worldly kind

Time, time, the time will come just be patient

               For God has all things in heaven all the time

               and they are for the patient worshiper at this time

 

Heaven, heaven, I have heaven all the time

           I worshiped God and he gave me heaven

           I have heaven in my life and no time to waste

           tell me how do I become better friends with God

Just worship God and he will love you even more

              the cure to all problems is just worship of God

 

I asked for time and I got what I wanted

           not time or money or heaven did I need

           I needed to worship God that is the real heaven you see

           now I will spread this heaven of mine

           and try to make the world into a heaven of a kind

           by helping all worship God the supremely kind

 

Patience – By Hamish Dean

Islam teaches patience
Patience is a key to heaven

Fasting is a part of patience
So is Devine decree

God teaches patience
And is with the patient

Patience brings faith
Patients makes one compassionate

Patience makes one realise that God is not bad
With patience God eliminates the evil

With Patience God gives people good deeds
For their worldly and hereafter lives

God is purely good and patient
For the patient is one of God’s names
