Report to Your Lord!


These words came
To my mind
And advised me:

Report to your Lord!
All your matters
And to Allah are returned
All matters

Report to your Lord!
When you got sadness

Report to your Lord!
When you got happiness
And be thankful for that!

Indeed, Allah is your Protector!
He will guide your heart
To find His Light

He will touch your soul
To feel His great love

ربّنا اتمم لنا نورنا واغفرلنا
“Our Lord, perfect for us our light and forgive us! Ameen!”

الحق من الله، والخطاء مني

The Night of Decree


When that night comes

The wild animals
And the wind
Are quiescent

The jungle
And the mountains
Prostrate

The Angels
And Gabriel
Come to the earth
Spread the peace
By permission of Allah

That is The Night of Decree
When Allah wipes the tears
Of His servants

That is The Night of Decree
When Allah removes the sins
Of His slaves
Whom ask His forgiveness

Peace…
Peace…
All that night
Until the emergence
Of dawn

سبحان الله، والحمد لله،
ولا اله الا الله، والله اكبر
اللهم تقبل منا
صيامنا وقيامنا
وركوعنا وسجودنا
امين اللهم امين

الحق من الله، والخطاء مني

In the First Night of Ramadan


The grave of my Dad.
The grave of my Dad.

In the first night

of Ramadan

I saw my Dad

in my dream

It was looked so real!

He was sleeping

on the mattress

wearing his red blanket

I sat beside him

I looked at his face

I found peace on his face

I thought………..

thought…and thought

Then I soon realized

Our worlds are different

He has returned

to his Lord

When He was alive

He had ever said

About the death

“If I die, don’t cry about my death!

Because every soul

Will taste death

It’s only about time

I and you

and all of us

Will meet our death

Who will be the first?

Only Allah The Knowing!

Don’t be sad!

Allah with us

And remember

Never put anything

On my grave

Because

our Prophet didn’t do that.”

He was right

And I didn’t cry

As he died

But I cried when I prayed

For him

Alone in my room

اللهم اغفرله وارحمه وعافه واعف عنه

 

In the first night

Of Ramadan

I saw my dad

In my dream

I was happy

With his presence! ❤

 

When are They going to do Prayer?


Gsea065843-e4da-43ab-ad03-f0e7cfcab236_png

Last week, there was a guest to our home. She was a friend of my mother. She came for sewing.
She and my mother talked each other while Kaka and his cousin were playing toy cars outside.

A short time later, we heard a dzuhur praying call. Kaka and Ade ran to the bathroom for taking ablution, while the adult were enjoying their talk. After took ablution, they reminded me too, “Mom, please take ablution, remember we must pray on time.” I said, “Sure, I was waiting you and now my turn to take ablution. Do prayer well, don’t too fast! Okay!”

Twenty minutes later, they saw the guest is still talking. They asked each other, “When are they going to do prayer? It was too late. Did they hear adzan (praying call)?” Their grandmother and her guest heard the questions from those kids, they smiled at the boys and said, “Yes we must cut our talk and thank you for the reminder. You’re both pious kids! Masha’Allah!” The boys smiled too, and talked about that to me.

The guest said to me, “I feel embarrass with these two boys! How can they do prayer on time?”

We didn’t force them to pray on time. We have said to them about the time of prayers, and Allah will love to the Muslims who always pray on time. Firstly, they did it since their ages 5 (Kaka) and 4 (Ade). They had a special time for watching their favorite film and its time after dzuhur prayer. They wanted to watch that film freely, so they decided to pray first before watching a movie. Since that, it was became their habits, and till now, they always pray on time, especially dzuhur. It was the story about them. Alhamdulillah, they’re like a live alarm for us. I’m really sure, they have been guided by Allah to love Islam and its precept. We, as adult have to give them a good example. We must do what we’ve talked and asked to the kids because they’ll protest us, when they see us ignored our saying.

Day 28: NaPoWriMo


And now for today’s prompt (optional, as always). Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about bridges. A bridge is a powerful metaphor, and when you start looking for bridges in poems, you find them everywhere. Your poem could be about a real bridge or an imaginary or ideal bridge. It could be one you cross every day, or one that simply seems to stand for something larger – for the idea of connection or distance, for the idea of movement and travel and new horizons.

Happy writing!


I use “bridge” as connection to our Creator. My inspiration came from surah Al-A’raf:23.

Night has come

covered the earth

Asking sun to go far a way

Moon and stars were joking

Smiling in night’s wings

 

Yonder

In the small house

A man was talking

By himself

Raising up his arms

Crying

Saying Allah….Allah….Allah

O my Lord, I have wronged

Myself, and if You

Do not forgive me and

Have mercy upon me

I will surely be

Among the losers.

 

Moon and stars were

Hearing his praying

They stopped to joke

then night becomes sad

without their lights.

 

A Nice Discussion with Two Boys!

The day before yesterday, after prayed Maghrib, my son Kaka informed me about Ade’s prayer.
“Mom, Ade prayed maghrib 4 rokaat. Prayer maghrib is 3 rokaat, right?”

“Yes, 3! Oh,he might forget to count its rokaat.” Said I and smiled at him.

“De, why you prayed 4 rokaat, did you forget its rokaat?” asked Kaka to Ade.

Ade didn’t answer, he was shy of Kaka.  I tried to explain and to clear the problem. “I think he forgot, right Ade?”

Ade said, “Yes!”

“I got it, now!”

Kaka said again, “I’m sure syaithan had disturbed Ade while his prayer, till Ade forgot its rokaat. You must against syaithan. Syaithan is our enemy, isn’t he?”

“Exactly, we should against syaithan. Yes, it’s true he always disturb us in every good thing. Hey, I had ever prayed with many tasyahud, hehe and you had reminded your mom. I was shy.”

“Yes, I do remember it. It means Syaithan had disturbed you too, Mom.” Said Kaka then laughed loudly.

“Please tell us about syaithans, why do they like to disturb us? We don’t disturb them.” asked Kaka and Ade.

I told them that the leader of syaithan is Iblees. I explained the character of Iblees base on Surah Al-Baqoroh :34 and 36.

“Since that Iblees and his followers will disturb the children of Adam. They will work hard to whisper into the breasts of mankind. Syaithan is from the jinn and mankind. So Iblees thought, he was better than Adam. Allah has created him from fire, and Allah created Adam from the clown.”

“How to fight syaithan, is there dua for it?”

“Mom, do tell about Abrahah and Ababil again?” said Ade to me. He called me Mom too.
“Ade, I’ll tell about Abrahah next time okay, now I’ll answer Kaka first. Do read bismillah before doing something. Ask help to Allah by reading ta’awudz a’udzubillahi minasyaithoni rojiim. Besides these ways, there are special duas for it, reading ayat kursy, and another duas. If we read Qur’an well, insha’Allah Allah will help us.”

“Teach us the duas!”

I taught Kaka and Ade, duas from surah Al- Mu’minun.

وَقُل رَّبِّ أَعُوْذُبِكَ مِنْ هَمَزَاتِ الشَّيَاطِيْنِ

وَأَعُوذُبِكَ رَبِّ أَنْ يَحْضُرُوْنِ

“And say, “My Lord, I seek refuge in You from the incitements of the devils. And I seek refuge in You, my Lord, lest they be present with me.” [Al-Mu’minun:97-98]

They repeated what I said word by word diligently. Alhamdulillah, Alhamdulillah they have known their enemies.

“Do you understand what I explained to you just now?” I asked them to know their response.

“We do!”

“Oh, okay now let’s read Iqra and memorize An-Nabaa again!”

“OKE, MOM!”

“O Allah, guide them both to your right path always along their lives. Make them both as righteous Muslim. Ameen”

LET’S PRAY ON TIME, MOM!


sholat on timeIt has been doing four days, my son asked me to pray together and it should be in time. After heard call to prayer (adzan) Kaka asked me to take ablution then prayed.

I ever said to him, we should pray according its time. Maybe he remembered it. Besides that, he ever seen the Islamic movie. From that movie, Kaka has gotten many Islamic knowledge, eg: wudhu, tayamum, sholat, masbuk, how to choose someone become Imam in sholat, and so on. A good movie for children even parents. Indeed!

Today, after taking ablution for praying dzuhur, I asked him calmly, “Dear! Why do you like praying after hear athan directly?”

He answered glowingly, “Because I want to see my favorite movies, Mom. I think, if I pray first, so I can watch them freely.”

“He..he..he.. like that, yeah, good idea!” I chuckled when I heard his reason. “Ah the boy of mine.”

I prayed hopefully, “ it’ll become your habit, Dear.”

May Allah always guide you to the right way, as long as your life, ameen.
