think on it

by Bint Abdul Khaliq

How 'cool' is 'cool'

before you're so cold

that you care not

of what's being told?

That the Qur'an and Sunnah

so beautiful and adored

is not important anymore

just blatantly ignored?

How 'hot' is 'hot'

before you get burnt

don't play with fire

haven't you learnt?

The flames of immodesty

burn away shame

And faith is sacrificed

for excuses so lame

How 'in' would be 'in'

before you fall into sin

before deen is compromised

and dunya is prioritised?

Before pleasing people

is your ultimate aim

And Allah's pleasure

is sacrificed for fame?

how 'open minded' is 'open minded'

before your conscience falls out

and the things that you do

and those that suit you?

Before the laws of Allah

you hold in contempt,

considering inadequate

that which was Divinely sent?

Where do we draw the line?

Where is the boundry?

These labels we crave

yet evil it paves

Let's aspire for the title

that certainly will be enviable

on a day that will capture

every soul with fear

A smile will he wear

such a sight will be rare

His status will be raised

His name will be praised

He will have succeeded

as the warnings he had heeded

No grief shall he be in

He who strived to be a 'Mu'min'

of and relating to...

It be hot, cold, or open minded
Hidayaonline describing color
Even to those blinded
Words dripping with meaning linger
On point like a tashahud raised index finger
Verbal blankets that keep from the ignorance chill
Knowledge that give Dar Al Salam shelves thier fill
Remind oneself that life ends evermore faster
Pray for heaven in the here-after

MA SHA ALLAH... to both Bint Abdul Khaliq and akh Irfan.

assalam ailaikoum

mashallah sister, the topic was hit on point
brother Irfan is nice , alhamdulilah

I feel a relation to the topic tighter than blood
Trying to give nashihah and not to judge
Shaytan stays blindin the intellect and they obey his whispers till their paths intersect
They wanna be "in" like verizon but their ignorance aint suprisin
dont let your nafs control you, you control your nafs because its all a test so let the quran be your shaytanproof vest so you wont feel any regrets when you're laid to rest
