It wasn't good enough for me
That every limb of yours would testify
The ground beneath us speaking truthfully
Of news, who knew we would be headlined
And I , thought it wasn't enough
That you would stand that day shaking
The quiver of resurrected limbs
As we intoxicated by the drink of sin
Stand oh so miserably in our own sweat
Oh no, it wasn't enough that you
Would be interrogated, humiliated
With mistakes stuck upon the tongue
As everything else finds its speech
No it wasn't enough that the whole
Universe shall witness against you
No I in my false claims of love
Have looked upon your sin silently, wrongly
And now even I with bitter remorse
Will be called to witness too

May Allah forgive you. May you stand on that day honoured. May my being in your life never cause you any grief in this life or the next.

Abu Hurayrah (radi Allahu anhu) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) recited, “That Day it (the earth) will reveal its news (about all that happened over it of good or evil).” (99:4).
Then He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) inquired, “Do you know what its news are?”
He was told: “Allah and His Messenger know better”. He said, “Its news is that it shall bear witness against every slave man and woman they did on its back. It will say: ‘You did this and this on such and such day.’ Those will be its news.”

"That Day shall We set a seal on their mouths. But their hands will speak to us, and their feet bear witness, to all that they did.
Surah Yasin

. . . And you will think people drunk when they are not drunk; it is just that the punishment of Allah is so severe.

Surat al-Hajj, 2

Hadrat Al-Miqdad (may Allah be pleased with him) said that he heard Allah’s Messenger (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) say: On the Day of Resurrection, the sun will be brought near the created beings till it is about a mile from them, and mankind will sweat according to what they had done, the sweat reaching the ankles of some, the knees of others, the waists of others, while some will have their mouths covered by the sweat and Allah’s Messenger (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) pointed his hand at his mouth.

Abu Huraira reported the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) as saying: When Satan hears the call to prayer, he turns back and breaks the wind so as not to bear the call being made, but when the call is finished he turns round and distracts (the minds of those who pray), and when he bears the Iqama he again runs away so as not to hear its voice and when it subsides, he comes back and distracts (the minds of those who stand for prayer).
Shaytaan runs as to avoid witnessing a good deed. So how satanic are we, openly witnessing evil deeds without the conviction to correct it

The Believers, men and women, are protectors one of another: they enjoin what is just, and forbid what is evil: they observe regular prayers, practise regular charity, and obey Allah and His Messenger. On them will Allah pour His mercy: for Allah is Exalted in power, Wise.


  1. Beautiful, beautiful MashaAllah, I must say it hit me right where it hurts, but you can only run away from truth for so long before must confront you, prepared or unprepared. This is my constant struggle, what do I say, how do I say it, am I even knowledgeable enough to utter anything at all? I ask myself, what has happened to us? Why don't I know what to do? Why can't I do something? If we say we love someone, why oh why do we insist on letting them drown while we stand and watch unbothered? On the other hand, it can also go so wrong if we don't do it properly...
    Oh our Lord please help us to help each other and to do the right thing whatever it may be.

    1. I have been thinking the same thoughts more and more . I'm amazed that you've written something that reflects how I feel so well. I want to be the means to help them but what if I end up scaring them further away . And this is advice to myself first and foremost that when Musa asked his Lord to help him speak to pharoah he made a beautiful dua and then he went and did it . And my lack of actually addressing matters only shows that I don't truly believe Allah has answered my prayer or some other weakness in my character( nauzubillah) . Sometimes sis I imagine true belief to be like the flow of a stream something so natural that it oozes out into our actions, we do not need to give it a second thought our heart is pumping iman around our bodies and to do anything to the contrary would be reprehensible.
