Truth About Iman No One Wants To Hear

It is no different, as if I walked like a King or a peasant,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said no white is better than black,

Upon riches we do not gain height, fame, or fortune,
Truth be told, wealth lies in a chest filled with belief,
Uncovering treasure chests inside of our closed chest,

Allah (s.w.t) gave us something priceless,
It is something non-believers become jealous of,
It is something Democratic countries fight to take,
It is something Shaitan tries to belittle,

Am I wrong?
Do we walk Iman on a leash pretending to wear Iman as an emblem?
Do we understand Iman being able to walk without verbally following?

On the authority of Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him),
The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
Let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day speak good,
Or keep silent;
And let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day be generous to his neighbour;
And let him who believes in Allah and the Last Day be generous to his guest.
[Al-Bukhari] [Muslim]

Without speaking,
Only actions,
Words crawl down our arm,
Warp themselves around our rib-cage,
Influence our legs to walk away from that which is forbidden,

Difference between Muslim and Kafir,
Separating themselves,
Explaining modesty,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) walking,
Noticed a father chiding his child,
Explained modesty part of Iman,
If an individual does not possess one,
They don’t possess the other,

On the authority of Abu al-’Abbas Sahl bin Sa’ad as-Sa’idee (may Allah be pleased with him) who said:
A man came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and said,
“O Messenger of Allah, direct me to an act which,
If I do it, [will cause] Allah to love me and the people to love me.”

So he (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said,
“Renounce the world and Allah will love you,
And renounce what the people possess and the people will love you.”
(hasan hadeeth related by Ibn Majah and others with good chains of authorities)

We have two options,
Use Iman for Allah’s (s.w.t) cause,
Distributing words,
Videos as recruitment,
Forgetting the most important aspect of Dawah,
Both to Muslims and Non – Muslims,

Action without words,
Tracing a Muslim’s step back to foundation,
Examining his or her structure,
Praying in the Masjid,

If an enemy caught between lines,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Companions (May Allah Be Pleased With Them All),
No way out,
Lost in trenches,
Muslims feet touching one another,
Shoulders not allowing space,

All signs of Iman,
All signs shown by action,

Never spoken,
Ummah would grow to be the Ummah that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh),
Loved without meeting…
