Poem: 'Divine Love'


Divine Love builds up faith,
Even when you are lost and frightened
 it gives you the necessary strength to pursue your goal,
It cures the hardened heart and brightens it with patience,
It brings the essence of unity to a state of devotion,

Divine Love gives true pursuers of truth the true essence of belonging,
It rejects the very stamina of hatred
and pierced the heart with the beauty of forgiveness,
The love devine the treasure of the heart,
When it puts forward its very life as sweet sacrifice
in the path of its Lord and Master,

Nothing is as compared to this true devotion,
Not when the heavens has brought forward this secret as the secret of destiny,
Those who want to achieve this precious station have sacrificed their all for this very cause,

The Lord knows no hatred; He knows only Love,
His Divine Love is in every one of you,
Cherish the gift of the heart which He has made sacred,
Love is devotion; devotion to your Lord;
devotion to your family and devotion to all the people living on the land of the Lord,

The heavens smile when people open their heart to truth,
The seekers of truth are those who are the true partisans of the Unique Lord,
They are those who are ready to accept every command of their Lord,
Ready to sacrifice their lives for the sake of this Divine Love and Truth,

O people of the land of hope,
Despair not of your Lord for He is near,
Near enough to hear your call of despair,
He is the Lord of sincerity,

Be sincere O people of the land of hope,
For your Lord’s light has struck the ground with the force of Victory,
O lovers of God; stand up and brace the cyclone of evil
which has enrobed this world,
 with your strong faith and love for your Mighty lord, 

Devine the heart and let the divine love flow in the heart anew.

'Surah Al- Fil': A Commentary

Holy Qur'an, Chapter 105: Al-Fil
1. In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. 2. Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with the companions (i.e., owners) of the elephant? 3. Did He not make their treacherous plan go astray? 4. And He sent against them Birds in flocks, 5. Striking them with stones of hard-baked clay. 6. Then did He make them like an empty field of stalks and straw, (of which the crops) has been eaten up.
The Fate of Hubris: A Lesson from History
This Surah was revealed at Mecca in the early days of the prophethood of Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh). It speaks about the event that took place in the year of the birth of the Holy Prophet (saws), around the year 570 of the Christian calendar.Yemen at that time was under the control of the Abyssinians who were Christians and the latter had driven out the Jewish government that was in power at that time. Abraha Al-Ashram was the governor or Viceroy of Abyssinia. The thirst for power led him to self-proclaim himself king…

Significance of Surah Al Fatiha

... I have chosen to talk/explain today on a never-ending subject. I can say that if the ocean was ink and all trees in this world and the universe were pens and the sky and earth were papers, therefore all these would have come to an end but not the commentary of the Surah Al-Fatiha. This is because of the high importance of this chapter in the life of a believer, and this chapter is the first chapter of the Holy Quran. It is so important that one has to start with the Surah Al-Fatiha when he begins his prayer (Namaz/Salat). And to start supplications (duahs) to Allah, the Surah Al-Fatiha needs to be recited first. This is because of the nature of its greatness as a chapter and duah. In whatever situation a person may be, be it a difficulty, an illness or a state of suffering or any other problems he finds himself in, therefore he needs to recite the Surah Al-Fatiha.
By the grace of Allah, today 22nd August 2014, I have thought about explaining a bit again on this very important chap…

'Surah Al-Takathur': A Commentary

1. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. 2. The race for (an increase in) wealth distracts you 3. until you visit the graves. 4. But no! You will soon know! 5. Again, You will soon know! 6. No! If you only knew with knowledge of certainty... 7. You will certainly see the Furnace. 8. Then you will certainly see it, with the eye of certainty. 9. Then, surely, you will be questioned that day about the delights (which you used to enjoy on this earth).
Competing for More
This chapter, Surah At-Takaathur (Ch.102) - Cupidity (i.e., the desire to have more and more) contains a warning to those who wish to possess everything, those who like to accumulate wealth.
Verse 2:‘Alhaakumut-Takaathuur - The race for (an increase in) wealth distracts you;
This fanaticism to acquire wealth and to increase one's fortune, position, the number of one's adherents, disciples or supporters, mass production or organization, affects not only one person but Societies and Nations.
