Keeping It Real

This poem was written for a sister by her brother during some trials she was facing.
I think the message holds true for all...not just brothers.

By Br. Qur'an Shakir-Sabir.

Keeping It Real

My little sister is crying to me
saying the search for a good Muslim man
is not all its cracked up to be.
She said she keeps herself chaste,
modest and pure;
only to watch you turn your head and
the the non-Muslim women you pursue.

All the while she tries to ignore and resist
the hardworking, kind, non-Muslim man who persists
with advance after advance at her.
She turns him down because its you she prefers.
She's taking a stand.
She wants to honor you, her religion
and the commands of the Qur'an.
She desires the one who follows the Sunnah
and can lead her in Islam, now and in Jennah.

All she really wants is a man of statue,
proud, willing and able to provide,
a man of honor whose back
she does not have to ride;
a man of dignity who won't feel threatened by
her intellect or vulnerability.
She wants you, Muslim man,
full of good cheer, piety
character and intergrity.

You're making her sore turn into a blister
As you choose and marry other
than the dedicated Muslim sister.

You say the Muslim sister wants too much
in her husband man search.
She challenges your throne
with her requests for a dowry, stability and
an Imam to lead her in her home.

Dear brothers, hear my plea.
We've got to stop this immediately.
Wake up your Islamic pride.
Stop being your own pesticide,
committing the ultimate act,
killing off future hope for a strong
and striving Umma.

Stop turning your heads
and looking elsewhere for a wife,
mother and companion to embrace.
You've got one right here
as clear as the nose on your face.
She is full of dignity, honor and grace.
She is your Queen
waiting patiently for her King.

Oh brothers, its on you now.
RECOGNIZE!
Make yourself shine!
Claim her!
Pursue the tranquility of the Divine!
Discover your glory!
Up you mighty people.
Make a new story.
Let the strong "Muslim" family
and Umma be the story of us.
We can! We will! We must!
Allahu Akbar
