Masha'Allah very nice poem...And I dont think you need to appologize to anyone, rather we should all be thankful to you for writing an excellent reminder for all of us.
Jazakum Allah Khair
subhanallah.. beautiful poem.on May 8, 2005 10:40 PM
Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullah,
My brother Hasan, may Allah Talah reward you for this very beautiful poem. Br. Hasan, I got to thank you for teaching me so many things about the Deen. I wish Allah Talah saves all of us from the Fire that we dread. For itis not easy if Allah Talah does not make it easy. It is not hard if Allah Talah makes it easy.
And please go to India in the summer, u know y I am saying this. And come and see me in..... InshAllah.
Br. Donald Duck- Umm unless I have missed something and br. Hassan likes to dress up in women's clothing and go by the name of Bint Abdul Khaliq on Sundays, I think this poem was not written by him and was written by a South African Muslimah who is very much not a male mashaAllah.
Sr. Bint AK- MashaAllah very beautiful poem. I love how it starts out by talking about the dangers of the tongue and ends with the plea to 'Listen'. Very nice juxtaposition of concepts and roles.

Well that reminded me...where is Brother Hassan (aka Gillette). I know its finals time, but everyone seems to be pitching in with their contributions and comments on Hidaya, except for him...I hope everything is fine with him, Insha'Allah.
Also, what happened to that story of a restaurant owner and his wife (and the new convert working in the restaurant)...did that story had an ending?
By the way, Sheikh Zaid Shakir is Masha'ALlah a very fit and healthy individual...we went for a hike with him this morning and he made us do a warmup routine which could be summed up as brutal...I dont think anyone (including all young guns and old geezers) could match his stamina and focus...and then it rained, but we went regardless...ALhamdulillah, it was overall a very nice group activity where we had about 30 folks in total and almost half of them were sisters.
As Salaamu Alaikum
Br Donald Duck,I think there must have been some mix up there with your comment.This poem was not written by Br Hassan,but myself.I hope he does get the msg though.

Assalamualaikum Wa Rahmatullah
Sorry for this confusion guys. My computer is is quite deceptive at times, and I had a bad fever yesterday. I was going to comment on Br. Hasan's poem " me and you".
But this poem is also very good too, Mash Allah.
Anyway, please accept my apologies again sister from South Africa.
Jazak Allah Khair.
I've been rather busy (Talal would beg to differ). This is the first semester I've really been active at ISRU. Between coordinating Islamic Awareness Week, and the Siraj Wahhaj/Nasihah fundraiser before it in February, I've found little time to sit down and write. When I did have time, HidayaOnline.com wasn't on my mind. Writing requires thought.
Some of the writers may have seen drafts of some of my articles on the HidayaOnline.com editing page. In shaa Allah, I'll try to finish one.on May 9, 2005 3:48 PM
