An Unexpected Marriage





She was obviously frightened
And when I approached her her arms tightened
I told her you have to leave
She told me she would if she could and that you had believe
Outside these mosque's walls lied a riot
And I couldn't make it through it
She asked if she could stay the night
But he told her tonight
He would be alone with her
And they would condemn him and her
She told him she had no where to go
And this fear in her he had to know
He told her then stay on one side
And I would remain studying on the other side
As the hours passed so did temptation
I just wanted to talked to her
She saw me and saw something peculiar
Every now and then he'd hold his hand over a candle until he couldn't take it
Then he would remove his hand and shake it
This happened all night
And I wondered what kind of person would do this
But I remained on the opposite side like he said
And at around 3 he laid
And as drowsiness began to creep
He decided to sleep
He woke up around 2 hours later and proclaimed the call to prayer
And when I heard him I knew to this call he was no stranger
After the prayer completed
I asked
What were you doing with the candle
He told her I would study and when I felt shaytan approach and I desired to talk to you I knew this I couldn't handle
So I held my hand over the fire
And told myself this would be a result if I followed my desire
She quickly left after prayer
And in his eyes he felt he'd never see her
But he made it through the night
The next day the young man was approached by her father
Quickly scared that he had done wrong
He immediately told me he saw in me something strong
Based on what I heard
From my daughters word
I want to marry my daughter to you
I simply said thank you
But I am a janitor at the mosque with little money
He smiled and told me I am a very rich man and everything is covered
I slowly began to weep
He asked me what's wrong
I told him the entire night all I prayed for was for Allah to send me a wife because this struggle was so difficult
He smiled and told me you made it

For You





What I would do
What I would do for you
I'd write you a rhyme
Then put my life on the line
All for you
Just to get through to you
To show you
How much I need you
But I've always wondered would you
Do the same
Or would you simply play a game
And introduce your name
As complicated
But you truly are amazing
Just the way you are
No matter your name
You are my game
And if I don't score your heart
Surely I'm the loser
The mental abuser
All I gotta say is
I don't wanna lose her

Nightmare




In the nights stillness
I feel the darkness
Filled with so much sadness
Over my lost Adele
What I would do to have her back
What I would sell
So as I was walking one day
In my head talking that day
A man approached me
Saying I know about Adele
Immediately puzzled by his words that were gentle
There he stood
He began to talk
He said you don't know me
And it's only through choice you can see me
I have heard your call and I am here for your answer
I have a cure for what is eating your heart like a cancer
They say when you've lost hope you'll believe anything
So I asked
What must I do
I just want the Adele back so I can tell her I love you
He said
You told yourself you'd sell anything for her right
I simply replied I love her right
He spoke
I can bring her back but first you must invoke
My name
My name is Apollyon
Tonight before you sleep as you weep
Call upon my name six times
Confused by the request I told myself Id give it a try
After all without her I'd rather die
So as away go the lights
And that night
I sat on the side of my bed and I whispered
Apollyon, Apollyon, Apollyon, Apollyon, Apollyon, Apollyon
Sleep crept into a new depth quickly
As I fell asleep I had a dream
A beautiful scene
There she was Adele and she spoke to me
It was like I was in control even though I was dreaming
She asked me what have I done
I told her what's wrong
She told me you need to forget about me and forget this man you met named Apollyon
But it doesn't matter I'm seeing you now
But she asked me if you love me you'll ignore this man
Immediately puzzled I woke up
Why wasn't she excited to see me
But I woke up smiling knowing I saw her
Immediately ignoring her call I was looking forward to meeting this man again
So the next day I was walking
In my head talking
There Apollyon approached me
It was an excellent destiny
He asked me did you see her
I replied I saw her
He said did I tell you a lie
I told him this I would never deny
I immediately began to cry
He spoke
I gave you the opportunity to see her in your dreams
What if I told you I could bring her into this scene
This world
I told him I'd do anything
So he told me
Tonight in your dream you shall see me
So when you see me in your dream
You must prostrate to me and repeat my name six times
The day seemed long wondering what would happen tonight
The time passed
Surely time never lasts
I fell asleep that night well
Like Apollyon said I saw him in my dream
He told me you know what you need to do
So I prostrated and repeated his name six times
There she appeared
She spoke
Go back
Stop
This man is no good
But how can that be when he has brought you to me
Forget about me
Adele i can never forget about you
You are my destiny
I woke up that morning looking around my house waiting for her to be there
She was nowhere to be seen
It was just a dream
That day I met Apollyon and I was angry with him
He told me there was one last thing I must do
And you'll wait will finally be over
You shall live a life of eternity with a burning desire
What must I do
Tonight before you sleep
You must prostrate but as you do that you must weep
Mention my name six times while your forehead is on the floor
And ask as you please
And you shall receive
And I do not deceive
After today you shall never see me in this world
Not understanding what he meant I went home all alone that night
I prostrated and said his name Apollyon six times
I didn't even make it to my bed before slumber overtook me
I fell on my bed
There she was Adele
she spoke
What have you done
Wait what. What did I do
You invoked the devil and said his name six times three times
Don't you get it
666.
The number of the beast
And Apollyon is a name of Lucifer
My baby your never going to wake up
Wait isn't that great news I'll be with you forever like he promised
You don't get it he told you you'd live a burning desire
Your damned to hell to burn desiring to be released
Immediately Apollyon walked into the dream
Into the scene
Laughing at me
I told you I'd grant you an eternal burning desire
You'll be burning and I'll be watching you fulfilling my desire
I immediately woke up
It was all a dream from the beginning
I look to my right and there she is Adele
Quickly alarmed I put my hands on her face
It was nothing more than a nightmare

Friendship





I know you get lost in my words
Losing your words
But don't feel like your friendship hasn't been heard
Just give me the word
And I'll be there
I want you to know from a friend I care
Sometimes in the future you may make me mad
And you may make me sad
But one thing I'll never lose
Is the feeling of being glad
Glad that you are my friend
A friend till the end
Whether we get married after I get a job in 5 years :)
Or if we remain friends :)
So allow these words to absorb you
And take you away
Allow my words to take your breath away
From a friend to a friend
I pray this never comes to an end

Rainy day






The rain quickly picks up its pace
As if all the rain drops are in a race
Racing to the home of the human race
And it takes my breath away
I stand as the rain drops
The rain slowly travels down my body
And I'm staring forward
Thinking backwards
I should go inside
And take a shower
But I shall stand under the rain for one more hour

Where




Where In the air
Does it say you can't care
If you don't believe me
Then stare into my eyes
Nature is brutal but it is filled with beauty
A beautiful destiny
It will have you emotionally
And physically drained
With my eyes I see and it pains me
To see the innocent pass
And lay beneath the grass
While the oppressors
Are the depressors
Where

Things Muslims were given others weren't

Volume 1, Book 7, Number 331 :
Narrated by Jabir bin 'Abdullah
The Prophet said, "I have been given five things which were not given to any one else before me. 1. Allah made me victorious by awe, (by His frightening my enemies) for a distance of one month's journey. 2. The earth has been made for me (and for my followers) a place for praying and a thing to perform Tayammum, therefore anyone of my followers can pray wherever the time of a prayer is due. 3. The booty has been made Halal (lawful) for me yet it was not lawful for anyone else before me. 4. I have been given the right of intercession (on the Day of Resurrection). 5. Every Prophet used to be sent to his nation only but I have been sent to all mankind.

(Bukhari)

Reciting Surat al ikhlas

Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatAllahi wa barakatu

In his Book of Salah, Al-Bukhari recorded that Anas said, "A man from the Ansar used to lead the people in prayer in the Masjid of Quba'. Whenever he began a Surah in the recitation of the prayer that he was leading them, he would start by reciting `Say: He is Allah, One' [surat al ikhlas] until he completed the entire Surah. Then he would recite another Surah along with it (after it). And used to do this in every Rak`ah. So his companions spoke to him about this saying; `Verily, you begin the prayer with this Surah. Then you think that it is not sufficient for you unless you recite another Surah as well. So you should either recite it or leave it and recite another Surah instead.' The man replied, `I will not leave it off. If you want me to continue leading you (in prayer), I will do this; and if you all do not like it, I will leave you (i.e., I will stop leading you).' They used to consider him to be of the best of them to lead them in prayer and they did not want anyone else to lead them other than him. So, when the Prophet came they informed him of this information and he said,

«يَا فُلَانُ، مَا يَمْنَعُكَ أَنْ تَفْعَلَ مَا يَأْمُرُكَ بِهِ أَصْحَابُكَ، وَمَا حَمَلَكَ عَلَى لُزُوم هَذِهِ السُّورَةِ فِي كُلِّ رَكْعَةٍ؟»

(O so-and-so! What prevents you from doing what your companions are commanding you to do, and what makes you adhere to the recitation of this Surah in every Rak`ah) The man said, `Verily, I love it.' The Prophet replied,

«حُبُّكَ إِيَّاهَا أَدْخَلَكَ الْجَنَّة»

(Your love of it will cause you to enter Paradise.) This was recorded by Al-Bukhari, with a disconnected chain, but in a manner indicating his approval.

Women in Islam

Narrated by Ibn 'Abbas (RA): The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "I was shown the Hell-fire and that the majority of its dwellers were women who were ungrateful." It was asked, "Do they disbelieve in Allah?" (or are they ungrateful to Allah?) He replied, "They are ungrateful to their husbands and are ungrateful for the favors and the good (charitable deeds) done to them. If you have always been good (benevolent) to one of them and then she sees something in you (not of her liking), she will say, 'I have never received any good from you."

(Bukhari)

You know





You know what this poem is all about
It's all about you of course
Your special
Whoever you are reading this
You'll never realizing all your blessing
It's you I'm addressing
You might not have the guy or girl of your dream
But your alive
Take a pause and hold your breath for thirty seconds
You'll never realize how much of a blessing every breath you take is
Until its gone
So deprive yourself from life and take a look around
Your life is quite sound
I know things might suck
But some people would be blessed if they had 5 dollars in their pocket after working all day
Some desire to have a home that isn't under a bridge
Some desire that food was so accessible all you have to do is open a fridge
Millions wish one of their family members was still alive
Take a look
Your blessings might have you shook
Just look in the mirror and just smile
Sounds stupid but you have teeth
And not only that your blessed to have a dentist who takes care of them for you
Some people just look for money so they can come home and give their family a few pieces of bread and oil
Jew Christian Muslim
Your alive
And I know
Sometimes we don't want to be
But you gotta see
What I see
A blessing

Imagination




They said I could always dream
The most beautiful scenes
But dreams can be far from reality
Especially when it's reality
But emotionally
Emotionally
I need it to be destiny
I need you here with me now
I need you to complete me
So you can see me
For me
In the end ultimately
I want you with me
But let's be honest
I put as much hope
In you as I put in the pope
If only I had a rope
To tie you in with
So I can breathe
Knowing at night when I turn around
I'll have someone breathing on my neck

A loving finalé




They met when they were only 16
They had the best of dreams
But love only ends with a terrible loss
It can appear to be a beautiful scene
But in the end we all do die
But it's not when
But how
They were torn apart at 18
And lived their lived in loneliness
So much sadness
At the age of 45 Mark was diagnosed with cancer
And finding Layla was the answer
The disease spread like a poison
Filled with so much passion
At the age of 44 Layla was deeply struck when she saw her lost love
In the obituaries
Not knowing what to do
She overdosed that night
Telling herself
If she couldn't be with him in this world
She would see him in the next
Is that it?
This can't be
But this is life
And sometimes you don't find a wife
All you receive is a knife
To end the sorrow
The striking cut we receive through the marrow
You think this is sad
Well it isn't
It's life
But if life could be so pure
It makes me realize there has to be more
More than just some cheap whore
More than just some score
Where do we go when we die
Do we fly
Does our family cry
But we need hope
It's what kept Mark going through his cancer
It was Layla's answer
They might not have had each other all their life
But they had hope
One might ask where does it take us then
Hope
Mark and Layla were reunited that very night when she died
They held hands in the sky
Neither entering heaven nor hell
But what does it matter to them
They had each other

Confusion




Am I having a delusion
Or is this simply confusion
I wonder what life would be like if things were different
We all do sometimes
What if my parents were different
What if I wasn't born this way
Or what if she had just said yes
Well destiny is destiny
And for some it will set free
And some it will imprison
But we all have one thing
We all have potential
Even the weakest man can become a martyr
We might not have the potential to be on the NFL as a starter
But we have to take what we get
And learn to forget
Otherwise we'll live in regret

Run Away





They tell me that you'll never be with me
But can't you see
Your my destiny
So run away with me
I don't care where
From the stars to the moon
As long as I can be your groom
Girl I love you
I was searching for a specific girl
And when I found you I didn't find a girl
I found a pearl
A diamond in the rough
And to die for you wouldn't be tough
So just take my hand
And stand
As my woman
I'll be your Conan
I'll be your icing on the cake
With you I always want to be awake
I'll tell you every night
Your my sunlight
And your the reason I breathe
Us is what I believe
But I know your father said no
Told you you and I will never grow
Don't listen to him
Listen to me
Love me
I swear I'll never leave
Your the air I breathe
So just take my hand
Lets run away
It's all I demand
