theres no place like home… theres no place called home…
not when you’re all alone…theres no place called home…
when your heart is so broken, and when reality has sunk in…
i being to realize that I have no home….

Oh Allah, can I seek shelter in Your home? the one You provide for those whom You love? the homes that are reserved for only the special ones?

theres no place called home… I’m just all alone…
I wish to be with those who find themselves a home…
they search near and far… they place their trust in Allah…
they know the journey’s hard… but a vision, they saw…

the worlds a cruel place, so theres no place like home….
the worlds filled with emptiness, how can this place be home?

everywhere I go, I see the same thing, no love…
and when I think I found home, I find out I’m terribly wrong….

even when I’m with you, or when I’m with them
I never seem to feel fully accepted…. fully content…

I just want to go home… please accept me in Your home….
I would die to live in that home…

Friends and Foes

Friends are foes and foes try to be your friend, in the end the lines remain undefined and easily twist and bend…but its really all due to your silly imagination, its all nothing but your own minds creation…you have no one to blame but yourself, you should have known your value is based on your wealth. The world is filled with people who don;t really care, cause if they did they would be cautious to make sure they are fair, but most of them just use you to get satisfaction, but when it comes to your needs its all talk and no action, matter of fact instead you get a handful of lies, and you;re left asking yourself why even try? Getting to know people is a waste of time, in the end they will let you down and maybe even lead you to commit a crime. Every woman for herself since the world is void of real men. The world is in need of a rude awakening.

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 9, Book 88, Number 231: Narrated Abu Hurairah : Allahs Apostle (may Allahs peace and blessing be upon him) said : “THE HOUR WILL NOT BE ESTABLISHED UNTIL A MAN PASSES BY THE GRAVE OF SOMEBODY AND SAYS “WOULD THAT I WERE IN HIS PLACE” “

Trip Turns Tragic

Im tired and depressed an my days are slippin/to an endless blackhole, blurred, im trippin/im either sad with fear and the tears are drippin/or im angry inside and outside im flippin/on any individual that comes my way/i just want to cry and pray/imploring Allah, I just want to supplicate/before the tongue becomes tied and its too late/I don’t want to live but I don’t want to die too soon/I just fear that my small bit of Iman will pop like a balloon/living amongst people whose majority is fools/why do they play games with Allah’s rules?/I wish I could perform some kind of heart surgery/but it’s Allah who controls hearts and destiny.

And when you recite the Qur’ān……..

{ وَإِذَا قَرَأْتَ ٱلْقُرآنَ جَعَلْنَا بَيْنَكَ وَبَيْنَ ٱلَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِٱلآخِرَةِ حِجَاباً مَّسْتُوراً }
(Surah 17, Verse 45)

And when you recite the Qur’ān, We place between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter a hidden barrier, that is, one that hides you from them, so that they cannot see you —
this was revealed regarding those who wanted to assassinate him (s) [the Prophet].
Tafsir al-Jalalayn

(And when thou recitest the Qur’an) in Mecca (We place between thee, and those who believe not in the Hereafter) those who do not believe in resurrection after death, meaning:
Abu Jahl and his host (a hidden barrier) a veiled barrier.

Tafsir Ibn ‘Abbâs

Qatadah and Ibn Zayd said, “It is coverings over their hearts,” as Allah says:

[وَقَالُواْ قُلُوبُنَا فِى أَكِنَّةٍ مِمَّا تَدْعُونَا إِلَيْهِ وَفِى ءَاذانِنَا وَقْرٌ وَمِن بَيْنِنَا وَبَيْنِكَ حِجَابٌ]

The interpretation that Ibn Jarir (may Allah have mercy on him) thought was correct was that:
“this means there is something that is stopping and preventing your words from reaching us.

[حِجَابًا مَّسْتُورًا]

(an invisible veil.) meaning something which covers, or that cannot be seen,
so there is a barrier between them and guidance.”

Paradise is Difficult and Hell is Easy

In a hadith narrated by Bukhari and Muslim from Abu Hurayrah, the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu alaihi wa sallam, said:
“Hell has been veiled with desires, and Paradise has been veiled with hardships.”

The version recorded by Muslim says “surrounded” instead of “veiled.” [Jami al-Usul, 10/521, no. 8069]

An-Nisa’i, Tirmidhi and Abu Dawud report from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu `alaihi wa sallam said:
“When Allah created Paradise, He told Jibril, ‘Go and look at it.’ So he went and looked at it, then he came back and said: ‘By Your Glory, no one will hear of it but he will enter it.” So He surrounded it with hardships and said,  ‘Go and look at it.’ So he went and looked at it, then came back and said: ‘By Your Glory, I fear that no one will enter it.” [Jami al-usul, 10/520, no. 8068. Tirmidhi said: It is a gharib sahih hasan hadith]

Surah Kahf, Verse 109

Verse 109: {“If the sea were ink for writing the Words of my Lord, surely, the sea would be exhausted before the Words of my Lord would be finished, even if we brought another sea like it.”}

Ibn Kathir made a beautiful comment on this verse:

“If the water of all the oceans and seas were ink for a pen to write the Words of Allah and His judgments and signs that all point to Him…and all of the trees were made into pens for this, the pens would break, the water of the oceans would be used up, and the Words of Allah would remain and would not disappear. This is because nobody can appreciate His Ability or praise Him as He deserves except when He praises Himself.

Our Lord is as He Says He is, and is even better than He Says He is. The comparison of the pleasures of this world from its beginning to its end to the pleasures of the Hereafter is like that of a mustard seed compared to the entire Earth.”

[‘Tafsir al-Qur’an al-‘Adhim’; 3/101, 104, 133, and 145]

10 useless matters

1. Knowledge that is not acted on

2. The deed that has neither sincerity nor is based on following the righteous examples of others

3. Money that is hoarded, as the owner neither enjoys it during this life nor obtains any reward
for it in the Hereafter

4. The heart that is empty of love and longing for Allah, and of seeking closeness to Him

5. A body that does not obey and serve Allah

6. Loving Allah without following His orders or seeking His pleasure

7. Time that is not spent in expiating sins or seizing opportunities to do good

8. A mind that thinks about useless matters

9. Serving those who do not bring you close to Allah, nor benefit you in your

10. Hoping and fearing whoever is under the authority of Allah and in His hand; while he cannot bring any benefit or harm to himself, nor death, nor life; nor can he resurrect himself.

However the greater of these matters are wasting the heart and wasting time. Wasting the heart is done by preferring this worldly life over the Hereafter, and wasting time is done by having incessant hope.

Destruction occurs by following one’s desires and having incessant hope, while all goodness is found in following the right path and preparing oneself to meet Allah.

How strange it is that when a servant of Allah has a [worldly] problem, he seeks help of Allah, but he never asks Allah to cure his heart before it dies of ignorance, neglect, fulfilling one’s desires and being involved in innovations.

Indeed, when the heart dies, he will never feel the significance or impact of his sins.
