Day 24: “So seek Allah and be patient you”

Asalaamu Alaaikum

I promised a poem in the beginning of this series, so now I am fulfilling that promise! This poem was written for a poetry competition I hosted on a Facebook page many moons ago. It’s written by a Sister named Naima Shire. Among all of the submissions, I have to say hers was my favorite maashaAllaah. Have a read below, and Sister Naima if you are reading this: may Allaah reward you for this beautifully written reminder! Ameen <3

Whether you are struggling or torn by strife
The best of virtues is patience and it is the key to life
As the Qur’an says: If patience, perseverance, and prayer is how you seek your Lord
Indeed you will receive Allah’s aid and double the reward
Remember after every hardship, there comes a time of ease
It is a fact that everything you do Allah always sees
So seek Allah and be patient you
Sooner or later this will pass through

There are two parts of faith which are the main necessities
Both sabr (patience) and shukr (gratitude) are the most complementary qualities
We will all be trialed and tested with difficulties, sadness or despair
Those who believe will find comfort with the words of Allah and will be aware
That tawwakal, trusting Allah is a tool for happiness and success
Following this, you will no longer distress or even digress
So seek Allah and be patient you
Sooner or later this will pass through

It is righteous to be firm and patient, in pain and adversity
Allah will test you in the form of happiness or calamity
So do not let helplessness and sadness override you in your situation
Instead bow down to Allah so you can be guided in the right direction
Indeed Allah is with those who are patient, as the Qur’an confirmed
May Allah make us amongst those who were patient and endured
So seek Allah and be patient you
Sooner or later this will pass through

Stay tuned for more reflections!

Wasalamu Alaiakum
