Yearn to Meet Allah. As moslem, we realize that our life is not as free as non-moslem do. We cannot do as freely as we want. There are rules of Allah that they should be done.
Our Prophet Muhammad (Shallallahu`alaihi Wa Sallam) said: “The world is a prison for a believer and Paradise for a non-believer.” [HR. Muslim]
A believer is ever mindful of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala). Therefore, he/she is not free to do what they please. They cannot wait to get to Jannah where they will have no restrictions of any kind, no suffering, no sacrifice, and no separation from their loved ones. That is why this world feels like a prison to them. Those believers who are even more cognizant of Allah (subhana wa ta’ala) are in even more pain because of their separation from Him.
A lover always yearns to join his Beloved (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala). This is the sole thought occupying his or her mind.
Below is a poem of me as a lover of Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala).
Yearn to meet Allah.
In this world of havoc and chaos, I may live and strive
As in a jail I feel in our travel of life
As a prisoner we actually live
As an ummah, this deen we shall revive.
Sisters in Haijaabs, brothers in thobes
We’re human, not mind controlled probes.
It’s my religion, my deen I represent
Walking on the edge, with words of hate, my fate Allah’s sent
Women and men as seen before
not giving in to steam breathing kuffar who roar.
To my destination I don’t stand far
In a black sky shines that one star
Our heads down in humility, raising our hands to the sky with sincerity
Proud of my brethren, our religion’s past and present
Khalifah Abu bakar Ash-Shiddiq
Maintaining for our deen, living in simplicity.
Khlifah Umar Al-Khattab to Ali ibn Talib
Fighting for our deen, rising together as a star and crescent.
Queens of Islam forever
Fatimah Zahra – her modest endeavor
It’s the time to rise out of our shell
Raised was our deen with every empire that fell.
Haq- The truth shall forever reveal
This life for moslem is not a dream, but a pact – eternal seal
Allah is the true innermost desire of my heart,
Love of Allah is the deepest thought in my mind.
Whenever I glance at the world around me,
Islam is all in my heart, my mind and my sight.
