Thinking of Our Brothers & Sisters in LEBANON & PALESTINE

May Allah subhana wataala free us from opression and torture at the hands of others, protect us and increase our imaan so even during times of difficulty we utter the words La ilaha il Allah, Muhammad -ur-Rasool-Allah.. ameen

Below is a poem i wrote when relfecting about whats happening around the world to our brothers and sisters. Lets remember them in our duaas and ask Allah subhana wa taala to release them from the hardship they are facing.. inshaAllah

Look Around And See

The call for prayer sounds across the land
Veiled women and pious men bow down on the golden sand
Scenic sunsets, clear skies
Eyes smilling, children playing
Food markets bustling, baskets overflowing with the sweetest of dates
Air filled with the aroma of spice and home made rich rice
Palm trees high, touching the sky
Birds spreading their wings, up above they fly

A loud BANG! splits the land apart
Eyes shut tight with fear
Is it me next or someone near?
Little do they know this is only the start
Where once stood a mosque us now land barren
Shrine of the humble worshippers snatched
All are startled by the sound of the piercing siren
Living on borrowed time, I dont have tomorrow to call mine

Look around and see
Homes turned to ruins by a single order
Cried fill the streets "Where is my mother"? "Where is my daughter"?
Sight blurred with tears searching here, there and everywhere
A silent prayer escapes the already bereaved heart
Gaze falls on the lifeless bodies scartered around the devasted roads
The injured take shrine under the dying trees
Smiles wiped away, all they have now are broken hands and injured knees
Shaken to their hearts core
Leaves them with no fear in their eyes anymore
Search complete, here all the loved ones must now lay
It could be me next, tomorrow could be my last day
Look around and see
Look around and see
