"Prose is about what can be said and what is known and so on. Poetry is about what cannot be expressed. I mean, terrible grief, or intense erotic feeling, or even unspeakable anger are all inexpressible. You can’t put them in words and that’s why you try to put them in words. Because that’s all you’ve got."
Oh Allah, when I lose my hopes and plans, help me remember that Your love is greater than my disappointments, and Your plans for my life are better than my dreams.
-Ali Ibn Abi Talib (RA)
- Speech is silver, silence is golden -
For anyone in Portsmouth - this coming Sunday! Spread the word in shaa Allah!
I understand now. You let me break, just to fix me. You let me walk into the darkness, just to show me the light. You did it to show me that You are all I need.
Ya Allah, Ya Ar-Rahman, Ya As-Salam, Ya Al-Ghaffar, Ya Al-Wahhab, Ya Ar-Razzaq, Ya Al-Basit, Ya Al-Wadud, forgive me for ever doubting You.
— Mobeen Hakeem
I fell in love with this place
This world that I found
When I whispered His name
With my head on the ground
I felt my heart beat His name
No more worry, no more grief
This love, so profound
It had set me free
He fixed my broken soul
And dark memories
A new life to unfold
I could finally…
So uh this happened t’day 💁🎓
