What are the qualities that a friend should
have – that which would make a true friend so true?
A friend is one whom you like to be with
while a true friend insists on being with you.
I am a Muslim: yes, I love Jesus –
For Jesus was a Prophet of Allah.
Jesus was a Muslim, so was Moses –
With David – their religion was Islam.
Look at them enjoy life each day and night,
Riding fancy cars, living in mansions,
Looking down on each other with much pride,
And living life as though there’s no reason –
A few words of advice in this sonnet:
Don’t hurt, if you too don’t like to be hurt.
When bad deeds return, you might regret it.
So watch your deeds, and take care of your words.
SubhanAllah – Glory be to Allah –
Glory be to Allah who created –
The lands, the mountains, and flowing rivers,
The skies and planets He decorated.
‘Tis foolish how some spend their days and nights,
Keeping an eye on what concerns them not –
These humans who call themselves so-called ‘spies’,
Who falsely think they know each human’s thoughts.
AstaghfurAllah – O’ Allah, forgive –
Forgive all my mistakes – the big and small –
AstaghfurAllah – as long as I live –
Please forgive me too when I leave this world –
We used to live in Saudi Arabia –
For many years that only God can tell –
Then we moved to where I sense nostalgia,
Reminding me of where I used to dwell.
When you wake up in the morning
From a dream you think is okay
You see your spouse and family
Get ready for another day
