My Beloved

I was busy chasing rainbows.. now that I have 'lost' 3 trusted team members due to some realignment and yet to lose another one soon due to someone powerful (?) enough to enforce a policy that was rather unnatural... 'you cannot marry somebody from the same organization'!?
My usual reason for resorting to my normal act of posting something from the internet. You might have come across this but I think it is good enough for me to document it for my future reading. Hope you like it ;)

There was a time in my youth,
When Islam was only a custom.
They said “say there is no diety except God,..
And pray, you’ll go to Heaven.”

Ah, how simple, no struggle in this,
Just a word, and simple act.
Thereafter I’m absorbed in this world again,
With my ‘assured’ place in Paradise intact.

But this was not to be my fate
For ALLAH chose to guide my heart.
I learnt of a man who struggled so hard
When his mission was from the start.

The story of someone who had morals,
Spoke gently, kindness he knew.
Never fearing to say what’s right,
His conviction in ISLAM was true.

The touch of his hand was as soft as silk
To comfort a crying child.
To mend his clothes, or do the chores,
Never complaining, he always smiled.

His smell was always of musk,
And cleanliness he kept at his best.
Stark contrast with the heroes of today,
Who stink of beer and sweat.

He held the hands of his companions.
Unashamed to play with many children.
So modest, so humble, a perfect example,
That strangers could not recognise him.

His eyes slept little for nights were precious,
His prayers he treasured much greater.
To pray in the depths of night,
Seeking forgiveness, and nearness to his Creator.

He broke his tooth for me at Uhud,
And bled for me at Ta’if.
He cried for me, tears of concern,
Just so I could have this belief.

His enemies admired his teachings,
Uniting every religion, every clan.
Till ISLAM came to every corner of the world,
O, but indeed he was only a man.

To own a house, or build his wealth
Was not his main priority.
To establish ISLAM was more essential,
To bring us under a Higher Authority.

Don’t you want him to plea for your case,
When before ALLAH-The Judge-you stand?
Don’t you wish to be around his fountain,
A burning desire to drink from his hand?

So I love him more than all creation,
My Leader, my Humble Prophet.
Muhammad (SAWS) was a mercy to all mankind,
And to me, he is MY BELOVED !

To all Malaysian.. happy independence day

In chasing the rainbows it is expected to have some casualties, especially the foot soldiers.

Allahumma solli ala Muhammad waala ali saiyidina Muhammad.

Begitulah adat dunia sekular..
DiZaman Rasullullah dan khalifaturRashidin semua panglima besar didepan memegang panji Perang.
Tenringat 3 sahabat besar yang mati sebelum Khalid al Walidmengambil tugas sebagai ketua perang :)
Terimakasih kerana menyerikan ruang ini dengan solaturRasul

Alhamdulillah, without our Prophet and all the sahabah and dae'i bringing message of Islam, we stiil stuck in the dark age. Let's we all mujahadah to bring the good message across as our way of life and istiqamah in saying selawat to Rasulullah.

Wan Sharif said...

Salam S. O.T,
Been neglecting the blog and not responding to your comments. Some ustazs say that if non Muslim were to base Islam on how Muslim behave.. Maybe they not be Muslim at all ..
May Allah give us courage and perseverance to bring the good message across.
