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

Our life – By Hamish Dean

High ways and low ways
Islam Always
patience now days
Dreams high place
worship God days
nights be raised
piety praise
hope in God
truly crazed,

now days be loved
regretful deeds buried in the past
Future set to side
saved for worship of God
the most beloved,

packed bags and hoping
surely devils crying
beloved to God is the goal
behold Islam for show
sincerity evermore,

Islam does bring peace
Does it please
angelic beings?
For sure it satisfyingly fills
angles sing satiety of the supreme,

Nay all must be hungry
thirsty screaming
for God is pleasing
worship unending
truly fulfilling,

love of things fleeting
life escaping
desire of things
disgusting, dreaming
God is the key
the lock our hearts
open us to your love
the most kind God
save us from this worldly life
grant us heaven and your love.

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,
