One of the biggest issues leaving society confused today is not knowing who God is. This is mainly due to the amount of corrupt definitions of God available in the public, from Thor, to Zeus, to both Kayne West and Eminem labelling themselves as “Gods”, many of us have either given up on God completely or are left with a misconstrued understanding of who God is.
One of the biggest issues facing families today is domestic violence. Whether it be against the wife, husband or children – we can all play a part in bringing an end to this. The family is the backbone of the society and if we want to keep it firm, we must learn to love, respect and protect one another.
Allah (God) teaches us in the Quran that “The example of those who take allies other than Allah is like that of the spider who takes a home. And indeed, the weakest of homes is the home of the spider, if they only knew.(29:41). If we look further into this example we will notice that the spiders home is not weak merely because of the web but also due to the habitual structure of many different types of spider families, which are filled with murder and abuse. A feeble home is indeed one which is filled with much violence. Such are the intriguing parables God sets forth in the Quran to teach those who ponder.
We spend so much time living life, yet not enough time thinking about what are we doing alive. Ponder over the purpose of life, our existence, who is responsible for our creation and what happens when we leave. If you don’t want to think about where you came from, at least think about where you are going to go when it’s all over.
A beautiful poem recited by Sh. Idris Abkar.
No matter how beautiful the world may appear to be surrounding us, we should not let this deceive us to make us think that the whole world is peaceful. We will never forget Syria and the pain they go through at the hands of the Tyrant Bashar. May Allah protect our brothers in Syria, grant them victory and destroy their enemies and the enemy of Islam – Bashar and his army. Amen.
This is a spoken word version of Mishar Al Afasy أبكي على شــــام Weep for Syria. Performed alongside Muhammad Khodr at the Mercy Mission Twins of Faith Conference in Melbourne, Australia 2013. May Allah reward them for their efforts.
As the world welcomes in a new year, the rest of the world witnesses cities crumble at the hands of dictators and tyrants. Whether it be Syria, Palestine, Mali, Burma. This is a poem highlighting how to obtain the victory we have all longed for. It is a revolution, a revolution to move towards the path of Allah. For far too long we have waited it is now time for the nation of Muhammad (pbuh) to awaken.
Today’s world has gone astray, purity is scarce. Sexualisation of society and we’ve lost touch to our morals. This poem aims to provide a solution.
