FWD: To the Brothers in Chechnya


"To the brothers in Chechnya..."

'Why shed these tears of sorrow?
Why shed these tears of grief?
Ya nafsy how soon you forget,
After trials come sweet relief

Why turn you from Ar-Rahman?
Why yearn for a listening friend?
Ya nafsy, do you not remember,
On ALLAH, you must depend?

Read you not those stories,
Of the trials in days gone by,
Of the Sahabah beloved byAllah,
Who for Allah's cause did strive?

Why loosen your hold upon Him?
Why fling away, His outstretched Hand?
Ya nafsy, do you not remember,
Bilal's sabr on the blazing sand?
"Ahad! Ahad!" He cried,
While his flesh did drip and burn.
"Ahad! Ahad!" He cried, To Allah alone he turned.

Forget you the firmness of Hamza,
As the gleaming swords did fall?
With Sabr he turned to Allah,
As the Quraysh did slice and maul.

Why drown in salty teardrops?
How can you dare compare your pain?
To that of Yasir and Summayah,
As the lay tortured on the scorching plain?

Forget you the charring of Khabbab,
As on burning coals he lay?
Ya nafsy how meager your suffering,
Wherefore do you lose your way?

Why befriend you not Al-Wali?
Why not in Salat to Him complain?
Like Job who only to Allah,
Turned in all his grief and pain?

Forget you those trials in this life,
Cleanse your heart and make it clean?
Ya nafsy, why all this sadness?
Do you not wish your heart to gleam?

Be patient in all your hardships,
Allah hears your cries of woe.
So trust Him and His hikma (Wisdom),
For He knows best and you don't know.

So tighten your hold upon him,
Lest He withdraw His outstretched Hand!
And remember the example of Bilal,
As he lay anchored on the blazing sand.

"Ahad! Ahad!" he cried,
While his flesh did drip and burn.
"Ahad! Ahad!" he cried,
To Allah alone he turned.'


Ali ibn Abi Talib (radiy-Allahu 'anhu) said:
"Patience and perseverance are to faith like the head to the body. He
who has no patience and perseverance has no faith."

The Messenger of Allah said: He who died knowing fully well that there
is no god but Allah entered Paradise.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: None amongst you believes truly
till one likes for his brother or for his neighbor that which he loves
for himself.

Pray for your brothers and sisters in Chechnya, pray for this ummah.

Rap is like poetry except to a beat,
But rap 'bout Islaam makes it ever so sweet.
To see our shabab (youth) now discussing the needs
of the whole Ummah, not just of their countries.
To think it all started thru means of controversy,
but the result is of those that earn Allah's mercy.
Rap aids the Dawah, will never replace it.
I just pray that 1 day much of our Ummah embraces it.
Ameen!
