Without You My Life Is Suicidal (Odyssey of Love)

Searched the face of trauma,
Had a smile but ran intro trouble,
Swept trouble under pride,
Asked myself if loving was a guarantee,

Without ears He listens,
Without vision He witnesses,

Selling her body wasn’t reality,
Demanded attention she was proud to be,
Fatherless and fearless,
Looked within after catching feelings,
Attractive and emotional,

Search my face if you don’t believe…

Without your safety my life is a liability,
Without rules my love acts as a neck in a noose,

Watch the look on my face when I kneel down to pray,
External cavities extract cancer from worry,
Every time you turn the corner,
My life flashes before car headlights,
Despite highlights and trusting the On-High,
We got all time high hate crimes and violence against women,

Without my hand acting as your first line of defense,
Without a cell phone or a quick walk I gotta’ pay the price,

Living alone without proper locks or familiar flocks,
Not in possession of a Glock and radicals are on the Watch,
Can’t smile when you ask can I live independently,
All I have for a safe net are kinship and a tight leash,

My belief in the Protector applies to building a solid foundation,
Every night my eyes fill with rain drops hitting floorboards,

(Silent Pause)

Wife: Why? I have money. I can be independent.

Abdullah Ibn Khabbab a descendent of one of the companions,
Criminals without fear or hesitation questioned authority,
Abdullah replied Ali (ra) was the leader of the Muslims,

After his answer Khawarij killed his wife,
Cut her open and killed the baby,
Tied him up and slaughtered him like an animal,

Fast forward to present day,
No matter the country the condition is the same,
Men are monsters and women are prey,
Rape statistics are high with no end in sight,

Unsafe to roam during the night,
Witness men sabotaging women’s rights,

وَقَرْنَ فِي بُيُوتِكُنَّ وَلَا تَبَرَّجْنَ تَبَرُّجَ الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ الْأُولَىٰ ۖ وَأَقِمْنَ الصَّلَاةَ وَآتِينَ الزَّكَاةَ وَأَطِعْنَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ ۚ إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ اللَّهُ لِيُذْهِبَ عَنكُمُ الرِّجْسَ أَهْلَ الْبَيْتِ وَيُطَهِّرَكُمْ تَطْهِيرًا

And stay in your houses, and do not display yourselves like that of the times of ignorance, and perform As-Salât (Iqamât-as-Salât), and give Zakât and obey Allâh and His Messenger. Allâh wishes only to remove Ar-Rijs (evil deeds and sins) from you, O members of the family of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), and to purify you with a thorough purification.

(Qur’an – Surah al-Ahzab 33:33)

Live peacefully,
Sit with dignity,

Hafiz Abu Bakr Bazzar related on the authority of Hadrat Anas,
Women made a submission to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh),

Saying: “All kinds of virtues have been secured by the men:
They fight and accomplish great deeds in the way of Allah.
What should we do that we may also get a reward equal to that of the warriors?”

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) replied:
The one who sits in her house from among you;
Will attain the reward of the warriors.”

Let me fight confidently with peace in my mind,
Knowing all is well in the home,
Look after your mother, brother, and nephews,
Betrayal is between Allah (s.w.t) and creation,

According to another tradition,
Bazzar and Tirmidhi have related,
On the authority of Hadrat ‘Abdullah bin Mas`ud,
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said:

The woman must remain veiled and concealed.
When she comes out of her house,
Satan stares at her.
And she is closer to Allah’s mercy,
When she is inside her house.”

Safety and intellect are of the most prized possession,
Fulfilling obligations are of the most important profession,

Do not believe it to be strange nor opinion,
My love has been shaped and cradled by His presence,
If I lost you in this life earlier than expected,

My own life would be taken by my own hand…
