'AHAD' 'AHAD'{he Cried}To ALLAH Alone he Turned {Poem}*Heartfelt*


As Salaam Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barkatuh!


And (remember) Job, when He cried to his Lord,

 "Truly distress has seized me, but Thou art the Most Merciful of those that are merciful.




'Ahad Ahad'! To ALLAH  Alone he Turned.


Why shed these tears of Sorrow

Why shed these tears of Grief?
Ya Nafs how soon you forget,
After trials come Sweet Relief.
Why turn you from Ar-Rahman?
Why yearn for a listening friend?
Ya Nafs, do you not remember,
On Allah  you must depend?
Have you not read those stories,
Of the trials in days gone by
Of the Sahaba beloved by Allah
Who for Allah's cause did strive?
Why loosen your hold upon Him?
Why fling away, His outstretched Hand?
Ya Nafs do you not remember,
Bilal's Sabr on the blazing sand?
"Ahad! Ahad!" He cried,
While his flesh did drip and burn.
"Ahad! Ahad!" He cried,
To ALLAH alone he turned.
Have you forgotten the firmness of Hamza,
As the gleaming swords did fall?
With Sabr he turned to Allah,
As the Quraish did Slice and Maul?
Why drown in salty Tear Drops?
How can you dare compare your pain?
To that of Yasir and Summayah,
As they lay tortured on the scorching plain?
Have you forgotten the charring of Khabbab,
As on burning Coals he lay?
Ya Nafs how meager your suffering,
Wherefore do you lose your way ?
Why befriend you not Al-Wali?
Why not in Salaah to Him complain?
Like Prophet Ayyub who
only to Allah,
Turned in all his grief and pain?
Did you forget that trials in this life,
Cleanse your Heart and make it Clean?
Ya Nafs why all this Sadness?
Do you not wish your heart to Gleam?
Be patient in all your hardships,
Allah hears your cries of woe.
So trust Him and His Hikmah,
For He knows Best & you do not know.
So tighten your hold upon Him,
Lest He withdraw His outstretched Hand!
And remember the example of Bilal,
As he lay anchored on the blazing sand.
"Ahad! Ahad!" he cried,
Whilst his flesh did drip and
"Ahad! Ahad!" he cried,
To ALLAH  alone he Turned.

My 'Salaams'  To You All.

"I Want to Die With my Forehead on the Ground,
The Sunnah in my Heart, Allah on my Mind,
Qur'an on my Tongue, and Tears in my Eyes!"

each day passes then part of you has Gone!
