Biography of Omer Shahid
I am a Final Year Student of BS in Mechanical Engineering from Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology (GIKI) . I wrote my first piece of poetry in Class 7 (2004) which was on my Mother. After that I never gave much importance to it. Then about 6 years later (2009/10) I wrote another poem and then left it like that again and then 2 years later (2012) I started writing again and I've been continuously writing since.
My Poetry is mostly focused on giving the Youth a Positive Message about Islam and bringing them back from the mess they have put themselves into.
Omer Shahid Poems
I Am A Muslim
United we stand divided we fall; Let's return to Allah, listen to HIS call; We were sent to this earth with a purpose in hand;
Forever with you Respectable Ignoring your mistakes Endorsable
In The Love Of Allah
Lost and confused, not knowing what to do They said I wasn't worthy to fit in anyone's shoe What is this strange place?
Too long have I been afraid; Too long have I lived in the darkness! Too long have I followed what others say because my words don't matter to them! But NOT anymore;
You Are Not Alone
Up or down, high or low; Doesn't matter where you may go; Know that HE is with you there; Though HIMSELF HE does not show.
The Girl With The Mask
I heard a story, quite odd if you ask; About a girl who used to wear a cloth as a mask; After picking up groceries, like on any average day She went to the counter, asking how much she had to pay
The Perfect One
Trying to do every little good deed, She'd wake me up for Fajr's Salah (First Prayer of the Day) ! To the teachings of Islam she'd pay true heed; Seeing her would make me remember Allah!
I don't understand the "Muslims" of today; Celebrating with joy, the Valentine's Day; DON'T you understand that it's Shaitaan's (Satan's) way? Who's ALWAYS trying to lead you astray!
That Piece Of Cloth
Why do you wear that piece of cloth? They ask; To us it seems such a difficult task; If we had to cover ourselves all day; Hiding our beauty from the world, no way;
I am on a journey that is far and long I know that this isn't where I belong No matter what you say I'll stay bold and strong
I Love Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him)
True or not, I won't judge your 'Love' But know that you're being watched by the One above At Fajr Salah you're hardly awake But doing violent protests is a piece of cake
I trusted them, and hurt I got What happened was what I hadn't thought Afraid I got, more, day by day Things don't just go the way you plan
We abandoned YOUR book But please do not leave us We wronged ourselves Only YOU can relieve us
Because What If You Sleep And Never Wake...
We slumber as time passes by On this strange journey that we're on Rarely do we wake up and realize We need to worry about what's going on!
I trusted them, and hurt I got
What happened was what I hadn't thought
Afraid I got, more, day by day
Things don't just go the way you plan
But what was wrong, where did I lack
What is it I can't understand?
