Extra Change

This is just a poem and NOT a true story...

The lady looked at me strange

Little she expected I return the change

For she had incorrectly given me

An extra penny

I had turned to leave

But my heart said: what would this achieve?

Allahs displeasure I would earn

To Hellfire my face would turn

Quickly I returned the extra change and went on my way

Thanking Allah for saving me that day

Inshallah, in her heart a respect for Muslims has been planted

And perhaps one day for her Hidayah and Islam granted.


Mum & Dad

Jazakallah for the Islamic upbringing

Teaching me to refrain from sinning

Showing me right from wrong

Tarbiyyah provided all along

Saving me from doing misdeeds

Guiding me to increase good deeds

Instilling in me the desire to seek Allahs pleasure

Mum and Dad, what you did for me I cannot measure.

Oh, Allah, Look after my parents as they looked after me*

My Lord, make Jannah for them Your decree.


*My Lord! Have mercy on them as they did care for me when I was little. (Quran, Al-Isra' v. 24)

Waathilah (Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (pbuh) said: “Four [types of people’s] du’a are accepted: The just leader, a man who prays for his absent brother, the prayer of the oppressed person and the one who prays for his parents.” (Kanz-ul-Ummaal 423)



One early morning at 3

I stood praying silently

Concentration in reciting the Qurans word

Bowing and Prostrating to my Lord

In my heart I feel so content

Tranquility I feel upon me sent

When family did come to know

They ridiculed me for stooping low

For a moment I did feel shame

Then swiftly realised I am not at blame

For, Alhumdulillah, I have been gifted

To partake in the night prayer so rewarded

And family catching me in the ‘act’

Upon them it may positively impact

For them to rethink their connection with the Almighty

And turn to Allah with sincerity and humility

Ya Allah, I thank you for this chance

For this virtue to allow my Imaan and a'mal to enhance.

This poem was inspired when I read of someone who had been 'found out' by their parents to stand in prayer at night and was encouraged NOT to do so by them. May Allah guide us all to do what is good and stop ourselves from stopping (directly or indirectly) others in doing good, ameen.


Have courage

When things go wrong as they sometimes will

When the road you're trudging seems all uphill

When the funds are low, and the debts are high

And you want to smile, but have to sigh

When care is pressing you down a bit

Rest if you must, but do not quit.

Success is failure turned inside out

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt

And you can never tell how close you are

It may be near when it seems so far

So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit

It's when things go wrong that you must not quit.

Allah tests those whom He loves


I’m lucky I have feet,

I’m lucky I can walk,

I’m lucky I have a mouth,

I’m lucky I can talk,


I’m lucky I have ears,

I’m lucky I can hear,

I’m lucky I can do these stuff that people can not bear,

But I’m mostly lucky because I’ve been cared.


I’m unlucky I have no feet,

I’m unlucky that I can’t walk,

I’m lucky I have a mouth,

But I still can not talk,


I’m half lucky I have 1 ear,

I’m lucky I can hear,

I’m lucky that I can do some things that some people can't bear,

But I’m mostly lucky cause I’ll always know that I am cared by the Almighty God that every one fears!!!!!
