Poem: All That Is She
There is poetry that is written,by those with hearts so smitten,that they seek out words from all languages,to try to describe the one for whom their heart wishes.But with a beauty like hers,I too have been left without words,because it is only Allah who knows,the true essence of all that is she.

People say that happiness lies in following your heart, but without God, guidance, discipline, & faith, even the heart can go astray.

An excerpt:

The sun rises.
The sun sets.
We live.
We die.
We become strong.
We become weak.
This is the true nature of man.
We are predictable,
but our fate is unpredictable
by us.
And we live
with one of two things in our horizon:
a fog
or a mirage.
We are all capable of change and betterment.
We are all designed for greatness in our own right.
But, that clarity and zeal
will only truly come with God
in our hearts,
in our words,
in our actions,
in our minds,
and in the very essence of what makes us.
Our every breath is a result of His Will and Mercy.
So, should we not live every moment in the pursuit of pleasing Him?

Something has really been testing my patience in the last little while, and I’ve realized that the test has been more difficult whenever my faith became weak and I wasn’t as diligent in maintaining a connection and relationship with Allah. What I’ve learned from and been reminded of through this is that in order for me to find peace of heart and mind, and in order for me to achieve success in patience and in acquiring what I’m looking for, I must place my greatest efforts towards my relationship with Allah, and trust in Him to handle the matters of my life that are not in my control. Sure, He may already do that through His limitless generosity and love, but wouldn’t it be wiser to kiss the Hand of the One who feeds you than to bite it?

Pray for the people of Palestine, and for all those who are being unjustly prosecuted, tortured, and killed around the world. We are in a time where there seems to be a goal to desensitize the world of death…where innocence is no longer even considered, but is being labeled irrelevant by the same people who are holding the guns or throwing the bombs, or even more so, those who are “secretly” funding those barbarians who have lost all understanding of justice and humanity, and have gone on killing sprees, targeting women and children. We see so many pictures and videos of bombs falling, of children being physical torn apart, and people losing entire families in a matter of seconds. We have to do our best to support the people experiencing injustice in any and every form, we have to help them stay strong, we have to help in every single way we can, but most importantly, and I cannot express this enough, we have to remember that the Prophet (SAW) said that the greatest weapon of a believer is Du’a (supplication). So, brothers and sisters, pray, make Du’a, stay up at night begging Allah with tears flooding your eyes, for justice, for peace, for patience, for strength, and for His Mercy, for the oppressed around the world. Please, let’s use this opportunity of Ramadan, in the last few days we have left, to come together and sincerely, from the deepest points of our hearts to dedicate most of our time towards making Du’a, and KNOW for a FACT that Allah will answer our Du’a. Jazakum Allahu Khairun. And Allah knows best.

Progression Through Addiction - Nadir Keval
This Ramadan, I’ve been trying to overcome an addiction I’ve struggled with for most of my life. It’s not an addiction like smoking or drinking, or anything like that, alhamdulillah, but it’s a major struggle I haven’t been able to overcome, and one that has negatively influenced a great deal of my life. I’ve begun to understand that all of us have our vices, our addictions, our obsessions, and those things can be bad for us if we fall too deep into them. For example, consider that even drinking too much water can lead to us hurting ourselves, even though water is a human necessity. I learned that everything comes with a need for balance, and a need for how to approach something wisely. To put that into context of the water example, technically, you could get water from drinking soda/pop, but that is far more harmful to your body than drinking pure water would be.
Addiction is something I’ve learned may have its benefits. How many successful and influential people have you met or heard of who said that despite knowing what they needed to do, they weren’t able to do it until they hit rock bottom. Perhaps, that’s what addiction, along with other struggles like it, lead to. Perhaps, that is why these things exist. I’m not necessarily suggesting one indulges in any addiction or struggle, but instead, to take your time in working through things and growing at a pace that doesn’t hurt you.

Try, Try Again - Nadir Keval
With being halfway through Ramadan 2014, I’ve been giving a lot of thought towards bettering myself this month. One of the things I’ve learned more than almost anything else is how we are very fragile people, and we need to be easier on ourselves. It’s important that we do our best to better ourselves, but when we fail or fall, we shouldn’t give up.Read the whole article: Try, Try Again - Nadir Keval
