    Day before yesterday
    i was randomly scrolling
    through Ramadan lectures
    and i was already feeling
    low as i wasn't prepared
    for Ramadan and deep
    inside my heart i was
    contemplating my relationship
    with Almighty Allah as i felt
    my imam was low due to personal
    and as much external reasons
    of society.

    As i was scrolling i came
    across a lecture by Dr. Yasir
    Qadhi

    "What if I'm not motivated
    for Ramadan" ?

    As if Almighty Allah heard
    my dua as seriously i wasn't
    enough motivated knowing
    from past two years i was
    caged in lockdown due to
    pandemic.


    I went through lecture
    and saw this as vital sign
    how Almighty Allah guide
    us when we sincerely ask
    for way out...

    This reminds me of
    Qur'an verse

    وَوَجَدَكَ ضَآلًّا فَهَدَىٰ
    Translation

    Did He not find you unguided then guided you ?


    Surah : Ad-Duhaa 93:7

    Ad- Duhaa is the ninety-third chapter of the Qur'an, with 11 āyat or verses.


    I was awestruck by the mercy of Almighty Allah
    on my fragile soul and i feel ashamed of my
    unthankful nature towards his blessings.


    That's said i guess this isn't me alone
    who'd felt not enough motivated for Ramadan
    as each one of us are struggling differently.

    As recent pandemic left most of us
    in distress and it was more of a traumatic
    phase which you and i have gone through.


    Some lost their parents , few lost their
    relatives and each one of us lost sometimes
    which no one can compensate. Allah knows
    best.

    Saying this Ramadan isn't about who will
    finishes reading maximum Qur'an , who
    will be racing for the charity , who'll be
    performing nafil and who'll be standing
    whole night doing ''Qiyam-ul-layl ".

    Almighty Allah cleary stated in Surah Al - Baqarah

    شَهْرُ رَمَضَانَ ٱلَّذِىٓ أُنزِلَ فِيهِ ٱلْقُرْءَانُ هُدًى لِّلنَّاسِ وَبَيِّنَـٰتٍ مِّنَ ٱلْهُدَىٰ وَٱلْفُرْقَانِ ۚ فَمَن شَهِدَ مِنكُمُ ٱلشَّهْرَ فَلْيَصُمْهُ ۖ وَمَن كَانَ مَرِيضًا أَوْ عَلَىٰ سَفَرٍ فَعِدَّةٌ مِّنْ أَيَّامٍ أُخَرَ ۗ يُرِيدُ ٱللَّهُ بِكُمُ ٱلْيُسْرَ وَلَا يُرِيدُ بِكُمُ ٱلْعُسْرَ وَلِتُكْمِلُوا۟ ٱلْعِدَّةَ وَلِتُكَبِّرُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ عَلَىٰ مَا هَدَىٰكُمْ وَلَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ

    Translation

    Ramaḍan is the month in which the Quran was revealed as a guide for humanity with clear proofs of guidance and the standard to distinguish between right and wrong. So whoever is present this month, let them fast. But whoever is ill or on a journey, then ˹let them fast˺ an equal number of days after Ramaḍan . Allah intends ease for you, not hardship, so that you may complete the prescribed period and proclaim the greatness of Allah for guiding you, and perhaps you will be grateful.

    Surah Al- Baqarah Chapter 2 Verse Number 185

    Ramadan isn't a sprint rather marathon so try to
    push yourself to finish line without competing with
    others but yourself.

    If you can't read Arabic try to read Qur'an in
    your mother tongue , and those who knows
    Arabic try to understand the translation.

    No matter what at least try to understand
    the message what Almighty Allah is trying
    to say , reason it , pounder and try to live up
    to the knowledge blessed by Almighty Allah.


    Knowing pandemic was traumatic but
    this shouldn't be our excuse to distance
    ourselves from this holy month.

    Knowing someone's is dead shouldn't
    stop us from distancing ourselves from
    ALMIGHTY ALLAH.


    Knowing something didn't go according
    to plan shouldn't be our reason to
    be disheartened


    Knowing someone left us shouldn't
    stop us from praying , when you and
    i are well aware prayer is an link with
    Almighty Allah which connects our
    souls.


    I know I can't cover everything in this
    write up but my only concern is that
    Almighty Allah loves you despite your
    sins , you might be disobedient child ,
    you might have done alot of haram ,
    you might be adulterous , you might
    involved in alcohol, you might involved
    in riba ( interest) , you might have
    cheated and you might be backbiting.

    My motive isn't to advocate you
    sinning rather to call you for
    repentance .

    When Almighty Allah happens
    to me most merciful then tell
    me who I am to judge knowing
    I'm just other sinner.


    Let's race up for this Ramadan.

    Let's strive for hereafter.

    Let's give up on sinning.

    Let's embrace Qur'an to understand
    the message of Almighty Allah.


    You and i are capable of everything
    Just making through this Ramadan
    finish line is enough rather than
    giving up simply without even trying.


    Five things what we're capable of

    1. Salah fives times a day note you can stretch your limit by doing nafil.

    2 . Reading Qur'an a page or two with translation.

    3. Not skipping fasting i.e unless you have periods or fallen sick or travelling ( make up this fast after Ramadan).


    4 . Engaging in Charity i.e ( who are capable of giving zakat and you can also give a date if you can't afford remember charity is intention of one's heart).

    5. Attending taraweeh prayers if you can't make it 20 rakat , make it 8 rakat knowing this is sunnah of our Prophet ( something is better than nothing). And last but not the least worshipping in the nights of
    Laylatul Qadr if you can't make it for last ten days
    try to pray on 21 , 23 , 25 , 27 and 29.



    I hope you find this useful and Almighty Allah
    make this Ramadan a peace affair.

    Ameen Ya Rab Ameen...


    Remember our one Ummah in your prayers....

    Good Night
    Serene Soul,


    The night covers you and
    I hope it gives you rest
    and a gentle reminder
    that all things end and
    so shall your bad mood.

    I am so proud of the
    person you have become.
    You carry your own vibe
    now. If people like it, they
    are most welcome.

    If they don't like it you
    always leave the doors
    open. That is what
    makes you strong
    and beautiful. Also,
    at the end of the day
    you realize that you
    are human, you are at
    peace that mistakes
    are inevitable.

    Nobody is mistake proof
    and so you are going to
    make mistake and you
    accept that you are
    going to make them.

    These mistakes don't
    define you. You have a
    kind heart and it isn't
    necessary for you to
    prove it to everyone.
    You know better than
    to care about that.

    That is what makes
    you beautiful. You
    know that you are
    only responsible for
    your own actions
    and you don't hurt
    anyone intentionally.

    That is what makes
    you beautiful. You also
    know that what other
    perceive about you is
    none of your business
    and they can feel free
    to create any image in
    their minds cuz what
    they are good at.

    You are beyond that and
    that is what makes you
    beautiful. You are bigger
    than your moods , you
    know to take stand for
    yourself and you don't let
    other people's opinions
    to stop yourself from
    making decisions.

    You know what is best
    for you and you will take
    decisions that will help
    you to get to your
    destination, that is what
    makes you beautiful.

    You don't need people to
    think too much about you,
    you can handle yourself,
    you know how to keep
    fake sympathy out and
    you don't pretend, you keep
    it simple and real.

    That is what makes you
    beautiful. It has taken
    you a long time to know
    your worth and you don't
    need me or anyone to
    remind me of anything
    such but sometimes
    reading helps to pull us
    up from deep water.

    You are happy knowing
    your worth which was a
    long process, so you
    don't let anyone spoil it,
    that is what makes you
    beautiful.

    I wish you hapiness and
    soothing as the northern
    lights that gives the traveler
    hope in the darkest ....

    Another
    Adventure


    The picture in the frame
    holds a lot of memories.
    Some good, some sad.

    Her tired eyes roamed
    over it one last time
    before she tossed it
    in the fire.

    It was time to start
    afresh leaving behind
    the dark past which
    never defines her.

    She set her soul free for
    another adventure to
    conquer the demons
    hidden deep within her.

    Divine Poetry....

    You are my forever poetry
    resonating vowel-chime
    of I do vows.

    Litotes to phrase
    my true thoughts
    I end up scribbling
    poetry in your name.


    I am a lost poet
    in search of your
    mystic aura I
    stay aloof under
    the moonlit weaving
    the couplets of
    your persona.

    You are a metaphor
    which I crave and
    you are a chink to
    my poet's dilemma.

    There's wide talk
    in poet's death
    society.

    Are you even real ?

    Looks like Picasso
    walking aesthetic
    portrait....

    What a personification
    of divine I must say
    you are poet's dreams ,
    a walking poetry who
    breathing in between the
    lines of my poetic tale...

    Indeed you are
    synesthesia of
    poet's vision , a
    jigsaw puzzle to
    immature audience
    too naive to be real.

    You are my
    surreal feeling
    in my ink of
    aesthetic tales...

    Let's Start Again

    You met by coincidence...

    And you decided to walk
    away without a goodbye.

    And I loved you only to
    miss you and my yearning
    for you is killing me.

    I wish to send my
    soul to wake you
    up cause I don't know
    whether to wait or
    forget.

    Now my poetry don't
    rhyme it smells like
    sorrows but you still
    remain zephyr touch
    to my soul.

    I'm still waiting , hoping
    on the path which you
    don't even cross and I
    know life has it's ups
    and downs.

    I wish to ache your
    heart like mine.

    Then will you apologize
    For the pain you caused....?

    This is just metaphorical
    expression but not from
    my heart...

    I ask no compassion
    but my choice to feel this
    deep sorrow is cause of
    my foolish heart.

    And you have a part of
    me which you deny , I've
    been part of your life but
    not the most important
    one...

    You are pure soul even
    in my absence , you wished
    to follow me but couldn't ,
    you were trying to say something
    but you couldn't , you still
    managed to remember in your
    silent prayers and that's why
    I won't forget you.

    You're my eternal love
    maybe when the time
    is right you'll find me
    again....


    I've no regret in loving
    you cause I've started
    with you and I'll certainly
    end with you as the journey
    hadn't begun and the road
    hasn't ended.....

    I veiled her as metaphor
    to rhyme with my I do
    vows of forever.

    She's breathing alive
    by quenching my ink
    yet seems lost to her
    conscious self .

    She's both my poetry
    and prose who's smitten
    by her longing for void
    silence.

    She's my faithful companion
    in poetic realm who ended
    up befriending adjectives of
    mistaken identities who now
    assume she's lost in translation.

    Not knowing she's victim
    of her thoughts , being
    long suffering and embracing
    the darkness now she calls
    it as her peace home.

    She isn't just a metaphor but
    my poetry waiting for a me
    to unveil her from the shackles
    of insecurities .

    I MISS EVERYTHING

    I'm just staring at my phone.
    I don't get any calls or texts
    from you anymore, and it
    hurts.

    I miss those days when you'd
    spam me with random cute,
    corny, and sweet messages
    that would make me smile
    or cheer me up.

    I miss those days when you
    would surprise me with
    "good morning" and "good
    night " texts.

    I miss those endless
    conversations we'd have
    starting from the moming
    until late at night.

    I miss our daily conversations
    and talks we once had. It went
    from everything to nothing.
    Everything we once had,
    went down the drain .

    I'm just wondering when will
    I ever get another call or text
    from you again, but I know
    that it won't happen again...

    The tales of my life,
    i will keep on narrating.

    As we all know ,

    People will keep coming,
    People will keep going
    The ones who have stayed
    in our life, will keep on
    testing us,

    In autumn the leaves
    will keep falling,
    But still the flowers
    will keep on blooming,

    They will come to meet us
    this lamp of hope we will
    keep on lighting ,


    My heart was bound
    to break, to hide this
    Stories upon stories I
    kept on crafting,

    After her leaving,
    I made every effort
    to keep my love's
    world hiding,


    Even though I will only
    find relief through medicine,
    but I'll still keep her tales
    alive by narrating,

    The feeling of my heart I
    will transcribe it through
    my pen and keep on
    inking her tales ,

    I know, that deaf is this
    world but I my poetry I
    will still continue to hum..
