Tell Me It Doesn’t Concern Me

Young minds witness tragedy,
Young Palestinians,
Syrians cornered,
Smart Bombs above,
Assad to the left,
‘Muslims’ to the right,
Death toll left behind,
Whose to blame?

HIV and AIDS on the rise,
Washington D.C hiding facts,
South African President showers after sex,
Believes showering is protection,
Boko Haram kidnaps 200 women,
Forced conversion,
Sold into slavery,
Sex in exchange for money,
Men received ‘wives’,

America bloody,
Police brutality,
16-year-old dies in a fire-fight (every night),
Burma Muslims buried alive,
America hiding lies,
Millions of children disappear (Sex Trade)

Abu Sa’eed Al-Khudri reported,
Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) said:

Whoever among you sees evil should change it with his hands,
If he is unable to do so, then with his tongue,
If he is unable to do so, then let him at least hate it in his heart,
And that is the weakest of faith.

[Sahih Muslim 49]

Tell me it doesn’t concern me…

Abusive husbands,
Women hiding bruises,
Children carrying purple scars,
Afraid to show the teacher,
Father beats on a regular basis,
Uncle sexually abuses nightly,
Mother ignores signs,
Addicted to crack,

Sister not afraid to lie,
In front of father she’s shy,
In front of mother she’s sly,
Outside the house she’s high,
Anything flies,

Brother not afraid to lie,
In front of father he’s shy,
In front of mother he’s sly,
Outside the house he’s fly,
Anything flies,

On the authority of Abu Hurairah (radiyallahu ‘anhu),
Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said:

Part of the perfection of someone’s Islam,
Is his leaving alone that which does not concern him,

[Tirmidhi, Hasan]

Tell me it doesn’t concern me…

Son attends school,
Follows footsteps of peers,
Take (my) daughter shopping,
Glass windows,
Victoria’s eyes,
Wearing heels,
Not covering,
Holding hands (with boys not husbands),

Wife walks,
Covers fully,
Quran explicit,
Talks modesty,
Ignorance shines,

Muslims speaking,
Talking elegantly,
Arrow passing (through) targets,

Affects (the) Ummah,
Affects me…
