The Reminder


Have we forgotten the purpose of our lives? ~

Sometimes we think we exist just to have a good time. ~
So we indulge in satisfying our lusts and desires, ~
Even if means becoming hypocrites, thieves and liars ~
We forget the sole reason Allah created our souls. ~
It is to worship Him alone, until they bury our bones ~
Never faltering, never shifting, away from our Iman, ~
Remaining true to Allah as best as we can. ~
But beyond this belief in our hearts come our actions ~
Balancing obedience to Allah and appeasing satisfactions ~
What is a Muslim who forgets the commands of His religion? ~
One who is blinded by Dunya, and lost all vision? ~
Have we forgotten that we have one of two destinations? ~
Hell is for the transgressors, and Jannah is for the patient. ~
In this test we can enjoy ourselves, and be pleased with our lives, ~
But the reason we live is to worship Allah, and this will not change until we die. ~
In the sorrow and regret of the most horrific of days, ~
We’d wish to return to Dunya, only to change our ways. ~
A Day on which we’d beg Allah on our hands and our knees, ~
Return us to this Dunya! So we can salvage our Deeds! ~
But Nay! ~
You’ve had your chances and received your warnings! ~
But remember when you slept during the early mornings?! ~
When you neglected Fajr, and didn’t keep up with your Salah? ~
You were cheap and you were greedy, and didn’t pay your Zakah! ~
You indulged in the obsession of this Dunya with the sinners, ~
And prevented your own self the company of the winners. ~
Who might they be, if you ask as you listen? ~
The winners are those who answered their Lord in submission. ~
They obeyed Allah and realized life’s mission: ~
To submit to the One who created you from clay, ~
and to fear the most horrifying, detrimental of days ~
These winners are the ones who enjoined in the worship of their Lord: ~
They kept their covenant with Allah, not breaking one word. ~
Prayer by prayer, Day by Day, ~
Holding firmly to the Qur’an, while following the Prophet’s way. ~
The best of the Muslims receive Jannah’s delight. ~
Because they fasted through the day and prayed Tahajjud through the night. ~
They fulfilled the necessary obligations and did more, ~
They kept their loyalty to the One who they lived and died for. ~
Let us all reflect, as to how we may be viewed by the Sublime. ~
Are we of the hypocrites who don’t even pray on time? ~
Of the losers who worship every nickel and dime? ~
Of the animals who don’t treat fellow Muslims with respect? ~
Of the enemies of Allah whose commands we neglect? ~
Are we the sinners whose own lives we’ll regret? ~
Or have we devoted ourselves to pursuing Paradise? ~
Of the Muslims whose actions are intelligent and wise? ~
Of the noble who tell only truth with no lies? ~
Of the pious who pray every prayer on time? ~
Let us Never forget our aim for Paradise, ~
We must worship Allah, through all of the sacrifice. ~
For those who fall short, Jahannam is their destination. ~
Allah’s Judgement is most Supreme, and His is the best of legislation. ~
So Ya Allah! We beg of You to guide us the straight path! ~
And we seek refuge with Your mercy from the torment of Your wrath! ~
Ya RABB! Grant us patience and let us die in submission! ~
Let us realize and succeed in the struggles of life’s mission! ~
We are for You and to You we return, ~
So grant us refuge from Hellfire’s burn! ~
Grant us the peak of Jannah with the Prophets, martyrs and righteous, ~
For none exceeds You in Your generocity, O Lord of Kindness! ~
And send Your peace and blessings upon he who You’ve sent to guide us, ~
To make us of the pious, and bring us out of the blindness ~
All praise is due to You, Lord of the Heavens, the Earth, and all that’s between. ~
Master of the Universe, All-Knower of the Unseen.
