Softly, gently

Softly reading
Al Quran
Child rises
From his
To see
Sitting, reading
Beautiful voice.
Softly reading
While others
Child rests
His head
On her.
She strokes
His hair
Softly gently
While reading
Al Quraan
Soft voice.

Allah's Blessing

We all have something in our lives to overcome,
It doesn't have to stop us from having fun,
Whatever hurdle gets put in my path, it's Allah's Blessing.

For me, it's my body, which tends to go on strike,
The hurts, the aches, get to me most at night,
However strong the pain may be, it's ...

Open your eyes

Open your eyes, 

See His Signs,

They are clear,

As clear as a sunset.

Don't be blind,

Open your eyes,

To what He has Created.

He is One,

Lord of all,

The Creator of this sunset.

To my little sister (in Islam) Yunaleska/Jessica

my little sister's cheek
because she is in pain
and struggles every step she takes.

because she feels ashamed
of not being able to run free
or to go about as we do.
She thinks ...

Gaza's Flowers

Little boys and girls
Withering like flower petals
Parents look at them with tearless eyes
Slow creeping hunger and thirst crawls like a snake
Then came the news
The wall is down
thousands crossed into Rafah, the other Rafah
I see my mother opening a bag of flour
Perhaps our flowers will smile ...

How Our People Live


 I look up!
The beautiful sky is smeared with a Jet fighter's trail!
I look at the Horizon!
An ugly monster of steel is rumbling towards us!
Father! Mother! Where are you!
I am scared!
Ya Allah! Make me strong!

No One but Allah.

Poem written by : Khurram Malik

Who filled the world with light?
Who raised the mountain high?
Who raises us when we die?
No one but Allah.


Who sees inside your sole?
Who hears you when you call?
Who helps you when you fall?
No one but Allah.
