Logic entails that the louder one is the better the listener can hear. However, in actuality it's the whisper that has the listener's attention. Despite passion behind words, it takes the whisper's breeze to effect the mind for violent winds only trigger an automatic in-built storm board installation

I just want a simple man that wants Jannah
Truly, sincerely loves the truth and holds it down like a solja'
I'm tired of all 'em jokers
Bearded or not
Whethre it's a thobe and a kufi you rock
Doesn't mean you love the deen
It just means you love the clean that you're in
And I can't seem to judge it
Where's the middle line in all of it?
I'm not talking about perfection by no means am I that selection
I'm just talking about sincere
I really do wanna make it there
I need him that's struggling and not constantly trying to find loop holes
Trying to use the religion to justify lowly desires, poor decisions, or a weak role
I don't need that
Just straight goods - keep it real - strive 'til death makes you alive
It takes dedication and hard work to make anything work
But you gotta be true to the cause otherwise you're another clause
There's this fine print I seem to always miss
The one that says I come before anyone else, ya hear me miss?
Yah I'm hearing you, another " I - own , I - matter, I - don't care as long I got what I need, I - I - I "
The selfish putting claim as the righteous
Haven't you heard..?
....   "So keep your duty to Allah and fear Him as much as you can; listen and obey; and spend in charity, that is better for yourselves. And whosoever is saved from his own covetousness, then they are the successful ones." (Quran 64-16)
I'm a lil militant in my thinking
That doesn't mean I'm down with killing
Though I don't support the bully's beating
And suggest you abort the mentality by rising above his insecurity ..

I'm actually talking about the concept of our Owner
If we understand our position in relation to the Creator
We'll learn to understand, "I hear and obey"
Not neglecting the lil things
For the Pleasure of Creator is only to be attained by submitting to His Commands
And by that it means if your tie is silk you need to use it for your curtain instead of your noose
If your abaya is tight you need to get a new size that's loose
If your money is right you gotta let it go and purify
If your can't afford to be ballin' you better take a step back and give the bank a slap
If you wanna be living right the only solution is to fight the fight
Weapons are knowledge used to increase in good deeds, with righteousness in sight
Losers are us that choose to submit to the pressure of society
Who are we trying please? Let's correct the mentality
Freedom is in submission
And submission is understanding the relation between creation to His Master
Owner of all, we beg of your Mercy, in prostration we fall....
Ya Allah Forgive us all.. Ameen!
NOTE: For non-silk attractive ties ($32), go to (no excuses!! eh) - Obey on Command!

 'Abdullaah bin Mas'ood:
 "Accept the truth even if it's conveyed to you by a layman or someone you dislike. And shun the lie even if it's conveyed to you by someone you love and respect."

The Great Deception

Instead of saying "I'm lazy" we say "I'm busy"
Instead of saying "I'm broke" we say "I'm simple"
Instead of saying "I'm sorry" we say "It wasn't me!"
Instead of saying "I'm fat" we say "I'm curvy or thick"
Instead of saying "I'm weak" we say "Life is short, live it up"
Instead of saying "I'm selfish" we say "It's my life"
Instead of counting our blessing we say "Why is God trying to punish me?"
Instead of aiming towards bettering ourselves we say "I am who I am"
Instead of speaking the truth we say "I'm using discretion for the GREATER good"
Instead of rising to the test we say "Life is hard, I'm depressed"
Instead of controlling our tongue we say "I'm independent, I have my own opinions"
Instead of not being wasteful with our money we say "It's mine, I can do what I want"
Instead of upholding our responsibilities we say "hey it's more than I had"
Instead of looking at our own faults we say "did you see what such and such did?"
Instead of admitting our wrongs we say "you don't understand"
Instead of being happy we say "if only I had ..."
Instead of building lives we're breaking down ourselves
The deception lies within us first regardless of how religious we look, how often we pray, or how much people like us
If we don't learn to confess to the reality of our state
We'll be left dumbfounded by the promise of our eternal resting place
It starts now
It starts with our self
It stays there and the rest will come; clear and sincere (Insha'Allah)

Truth and Justice they go hand in hand
The weapon of a warrior
Obeys on command
By righteousness does he stand
Upright,even if it be against himself
Steadfast in patience, encompassed by true wealth
"Who is it that could be an army for you to aid you other than the Most Merciful?" (Quran - 67:20)
I implore you to question the purpose of creation
Step first by internal investigation
Time is ticking
Minds are sticking
Know maintaining truth and justice is part of the test
It's not just bowing your head but upholding what's best
Fear none but the One Witnessing
You are the witnessed
Stay steadfast and be blessed! (Insha'Allah)

Pray Hard!! *

Don't sell your soul to the devil - you need not
God will Provide, but you forgot
No need to doubt that!
Worshipping the ideas of social standing, how is that?
Don't lower your standard to thinking success if found in that
You got gold don't turn it in for what fools hold
Turn your mind back to Him and do as you're told
Don't be a coward to your soul
Times are getting harder, we're slippin' unless we keep it tight like coal
Burn our flesh but we remain whole
Worship He Alone and forgo the chase ; it's a hard roll
I feel the tension when I see what society has chose
I try to keep it real but it's hard knowing where this trial goes
Pray for my progeny and my own soul to know
Dear God, All Power and Might belong to you Alone
Make us firm, for I know we ain't got the strength to get through this even full grown
It's a struggle to see truth from lie
To stand up against what most question, "why?"
Livin' in times foretold; I'm feeling it
My heart is shook, I'm seeing it
I'm afraid I may overlook
O' Master, The One, make us firm, teach us, strengthen us by Your Book
Don't let us sell our soul to devil
Who has us worshipping ideas or making moves that are only socially driven
Keep it real, pray hard, these times are a given ...

My Sweettooth

You get the box mix
And you get the 'made from scratch' fix
One's about quantity
The other is about quality
I'm looking for the 'original recipe' type
Not the made from a box hype
At first glance and at first taste they both seem fine
But after some time ...
You get a taste of fake in the 'ready made' make
It's not about the icing or the sprinkles
'Cause when it rains that's the first that disappears
It's gotta be made with the right substance for it to remain as it appears
The one worth your while will be known at first bite
But it'll only allow a select few; the committed within its right
It's about integrity and standard
It's about it's natural purpose vs fast and worthless
One is after truth and the other is after attention
I'm after the one with sincere dedication
The most expensive and the best of it's kind
Is a tasty and finely crafted find
That's the type I'm looking for ; the rare score
That I'm willing greet it's worth with my core
Beautiful to me
For the truth within it, is all I'll see!

Anyone who complains about the test life has brought
Has done themselves two wrongs . . .
They've lost the lesson the test has taught
And they've lost the blessings meant to be sought
There's no other opportunity in life to grow the way you grow through a test
It's hard road is designed to make us our best
There's this incredible beauty behind it
Such as, our capacity is known to Him Alone, although many times we choose to deny it
Yet in it's midst we're humbled to realize
Where our priorities truly lie
Sometimes it takes hypocrisy within to break us, before it is able to make us
Other times we can clearly recognize the signs and rise against the dust
Often when the wind blows over and we catch a glimpse of our reflection
We find ourselves staring back at a different state of creation
If we understood patience is enjoining good regardless of the emotions attached
Then we're staring back at a polished diamond, cleansed, without any scratch
If we choose to take what appears the easy way out, where whispers and emotions dictate our road
Then we're staring back at a diamond discolouring, losing it's clarity; it's value no longer does it hold
At the end of the day, if you choose to to contemplate you'll realize where the benefit lies
And you'll force yourself to submit and sincerely try
..... There's good in all, just keep your cup half full
At some point in life every being will fall
The point is to turn back to Him, Who Controls all
He Knows despite what others say
He's got you covered - make today, a new day!

Imaam at-Tabaraanee reported in „ad-Du`aa·‟ (3/1425/1339) from a hadeeth of Aboo Hurairah -
radiyallaahu 'anhu - who said:

"From his  supplications was:

[O Allaah! I seek Your refuge from having an evil neighbour, and from having a wife who turns my hair grey before the time of grey hair, and from having a child who is a lord over me, and from wealth which becomes a punishment upon me, and from having a close friend who is deceitful: whose eye watches me and his heart is mindful of me: such that if he sees something good from me he conceals it, and if he sees something evil from me he broadcasts it.]"

[Shaikh al-Albaanee -rahimahullaah- said: "This chain of narration is good..."]

Quote of the week:

"In spite of the difficulities that "may" occur in the path of loving one another, love does not hurt". "Love is not painful, deceitful or manipulative"!
