Not surprising Muslims wonderful at talking,
Not brilliant at mirroring actions of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh),
Excuses heard, ‘it is important that we remember Allah’,
‘It is important that we remind each other of Allah’,
How well-kept is memory?
Can it remind me of commands Allah (s.w.t) unveiled?
Calling ourselves Muslim?
Being apart of an Islamic organization,
Not reflecting actions or appearance,
“O you who believe, obey Allah and His Messenger … “
“Say: obey Allah and obey the Messenger … “
“Obey Allah and the Messenger and perhaps you will be shown mercy.”
“If you obey him, you will be guided … “
“Whoever obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah … “
“That what the Messenger brings you and leave what he forbids you … “
“Whoever obeys Allah and the Messenger is with those whom Allah has blessed.”
“We did not send any Messenger but for him to be obeyed by the permission of Allah.”
“On the day when their faces are turned over in the Fire, They will say,
‘Would that we had obeyed Allah and that we had obeyed the Messenger.”
MSA (Muslim Student Organization),
“Believe in Allah and His Messenger,
The unlettered Prophet who believes in Allah and His words.
Follow him, perhaps you will be guided.”
We can only be guided,
If we follow guidance,
How can a Muslim say,
He or she is following,
If they are ignoring guidance?
Allah (s.w.t) told us ‘No,
By your lord,
They will not believe until they as you to judge between them,
In what they disagree about,
And then they shall find in themselves no impediment,
Touching your verdict,
But shall surrender in full submission’,
What does this imply?
Muslims have to follow Allah’s (s.w.t) judgment,
Agree or disagree,
Don’t understand polygamy,
Follow Prophet Muhammad (pbuh),
It is not enough,
To say ‘I believe’,
Al-Mahmud ibn al-Hasan al-Warraq wrote,
Do you rebel against God when you claim to love Him?
By my life, this is an extraordinary example!
If your love had been true, then you would have obeyed Him.
The lover obeys the one he loves.
Rebelling is used,
For anyone who is subject to Allah’s (s.w.t) commands,
Muslims rebel against Allah (s.w.t),
We rebel against Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) everyday,
Muslimah dosing abaya and hijab with perfume,
Wearing heels, not flats,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) forbid,
Men and women can’t be friends,
Aisha (ra), Fatima (ra), Khadija (ra),
All of them (at times) talked behind a screen,
In the presence of Men,
Muslimah of today have no problem,
Speaking softly, not rough,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) told women,
If you talk with men, speak rough,
Cannot call ourselves a community,
Followers of Allah (s.w.t),
Believers in Prophet Muhammad (pbuh),
Daily basis we hold Shaitan’s hand,
Giving into temptation,
‘Abdullah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘As reported,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said,
“There are three types of knowledge,
Any other knowledge is superfluous,
(a) precise ayat,
An established sunnah,
Or a just share (of inheritance).”
[Abu Dawud and Ibn Majah]
Muslims following culture,
We don’t live in a Muslim country,
All of this irrelevant,
Three types of knowledge,
Lead us in the same direction,
All of Quran,
Don’t follow Sunnah,
Muslimah aware covering hair, neck, bosom, and chest,
Submission to Allah (s.w.t) represents belief,
On the day of judgment,
Those who did not receive good news,
Have a different set of questions,
Reject on the basis of disagreement,
Allah (s.w.t) knows what is good for us,
He does not need us,
We need Him,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) understood benefits of Miswak,
Understood benefits of not wearing heels,
Understood it is better to sit, drink, and eat,
Healthier to sleep on the floor,
What are your excuses?
Are you saying you know more?
Are you saying you have more faith?
Abu Hurayrah (ra) said,
Messenger of Allah (pbuh),
Went to visit some graves,
He described his community,
“Some men will be driven away from my Fountain,
As a stray camel is driven off.
I will call to them,
‘Come here! Come here!’
It will be said,
‘They made changes after you.’
Then I will say, ‘Get away! Get away!’”
[Muslim, Malik, Abu Dawud and an-Nasa’i]
Only Allah (s.w.t) can judge me,
We don’t believe in Tupac,
He is not our prophet,
May Allah forgive you,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) taught us,
Allah (s.w.t) showed us,
Allah (s.w.t) judges actions,
We know that it is wrong,
Yet continue to follow Shaitan,
We will be held accountable,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) pleads,
Muslims cannot attend meetings of an MSA,
Following Quran and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh),
Representing Muslims and the community,
If they are wearing skinny jeans underneath covered hair,
Salah not accepted,
Once when some writing on a shoulder-blade was brought to him,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said,
“People are stupid enough to dislike what their Prophet has brought them,
Preferring someone else to their own Prophet,
Or another book to their book.”
[Abu Dawud, ad-Darimi, Ibn Jarir and others]
So it was revealed,
“Or is it not enough for them,
That We sent down the Book on them,
Which is recited to them?”
Who do you follow?
How can you voice your Muslim?
If you attend events that are haraam,
Leading to kufr (disbelief),
Disbelieving woman wear clothes,
Naked in the eyes of Allah (s.w.t),
9 inch heels,
Not displaying Muslim traits,
Not fearing Allah (s.w.t),
Abu Bakr as-Siddiq (ra) said,
“I have not omitted doing anything that the Messenger of Allah used to do.
If feared that I would deviate if I left out any of his commands.”
Would you reply?
Are you implying Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) would attend African night?
Are you implying Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) would sit among naked women?
Are you implying Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) would watch women dance proactively?
You are lost,
If none of this made you question,
If none of this made you ponder,
If none of this made you cry,
Your heart is black,
Allah (s.w.t) nor Prophet Muhammad (pbuh),
Do you love…
