Free flow 2

That feeling of disappointment,
It hurts,
but it reminds you,
Patience is a virtue in all circumstances,
Not just when it suits you.

If you had this, if you did that,
Maybe your problems wouldn’t seem so large,
You’re struggling
you feel it
Yet you won’t give in to the sinking feeling
You refuse to
So you fight
and remind yourself
No struggle lasts forever. 

Free Flow 1

When you have no more will, motivation, desire,
It’s at that point a decision is made,

You push through
with an extra source of strength you never even knew you possessed.
In all honesty, it’s not yours,
It’s His. Your creator.

He keeps you going, when you stopped and gave up all hope.
La hawla wa la quwatta illa billahil aliyul adheem.
No power or might except from Allah.

Ramadan Mubarak !

I hope everyone is having a blessed Ramadan so far :)

The link below is a Ramadan piece I wrote for Muslimah Girl Magazine. It's titled 'What if every month was Ramadan ?" on page 41.


If the link doesn't go through, do let me know and I'll re-post it.

Keep the less fortunate, oppressed and those suffering in conflicts worldwide in your dua's (supplications) especially in this blessed month.

Stay Blessed

The news stopped giving focus,
We stopped giving focus,
Lost in this dunya,
We returned to self-centeredness.
My heart aches for humanity,
Our levels of apathy
Can be scary.

Everybody is waiting on another to act,
Problem is it leads to a severe LACK of action.
“Its an African problem,
 “they’ll get the foreign aid,
Distancing ourselves from the issue
Because they’re lands and seas away?
The deen teaches better than that
And tells you to act,
If not with your heart,
Then with your tongue or hands.

Raise funds,
Raise voices,
Make plans,
Support causes
We all have a role to play
We are all given a choice each day
If someone were to cause you harm, will you not treat it?
When one part of the ummah hurts,
We should all be looking to heal it

New piece

Written and performed for the IHijabi charity dinner, in aid of SOLACE (www.solaceuk.org)

What are you waiting for ?

Stop waiting,
For that eureka moment, or a burst of inspiration
And just begin.
You will never attain perfection,
It is your intention & excellence that will win.

It is an illusion
That age or circumstance
Will bring things into place,
Money is not the solution to all of your problems,
Neither culture, nor your race.

The path you choose today,
The one you decide to walk upon
Will not only have your footsteps,
Mothers of the believers,
Determined and strong,
Have also taken this journey
They faced obstacles in their time,
Yet despite the trials they were given
Its their Lord they turned to
To keep their souls in line.

Aisha faced gossip,
Khadija faced poverty,
Asiyah faced a tyrant husband,
Summayah faced mortality,
These tests did not stop these sisters,
But from it, their iman grew in strength,
They were reminded the life of this world,
Does not hold an eternal length.

Many challenges faced,
Harsh words spoken,
Should never leave you feeling defeated or broken.
Take inspiration from the ones who came before you
Who persevered with this deen and to it stayed true.

Muslim women who laid the foundation
Through living exemplary lives
Sisters please ask yourselves,
What are YOU leaving behind ?

Topic close to my heart

Children of Gaza & Palestine

I come across blue skies, a cool morning breeze
Birds sing their praise, the trees sway with ease
My mind wanders, I increase in curiosity,
What do children of Gaza & Palestine see?

Their cloudless skies coloured a lifeless grey
The birds flew off & took their songs away
The ever present stench of death, and physical abuse endured
Food and water, luxuries never fully stored.

I walk across my street and see a branch on the ground,
My mind plays back like a film
Foot & branch create a crack sound,
I’m reminded that precious olive trees that saw generations of life
are crushed by Israeli soldiers in cruel swipes.

Yet, still their heads are held high
though they may suffer and cry,
looking no less than dignified
soon honour will arrive,
from their Lord most high
Peace once again to be given,
To the children of Gaza and Palestine.
