Jannah

December 16, 2008

Bismillah

I did not write this poem, but it was exactly what I needed to read tonight. I ask Allah ta’ala to bless the writer of this poem with the delights he has written about…and more, Ameen.

Close your eyes and imagine this
Eternal bliss,
your every wish,
at your finger tips
and more…

Perched on a throne, near a stream
So serene, and exquisite a scene
You’ve never seen
Yet you still dream
of more….

Gone is grief, gone is fear
Gone is pain, gone are tears
Idle speech you shall never hear
And the Prophets make up your social sphere
and more…

The martyrs, righteous and truthful too
You are from them, and they from you
They held tightly to what they knew was true
To accompany them, you did too
theres more..

Maidens, chaste, who restrain their gaze
Lost in a glance for days and days
Fun and frolic, as a child plays
Where the breath that leaves your lips is praise
of the One that gave you more

Imagine you and your father, with ages the same
Imagine showing off your book with no shame
Imagine nights with the Companions, with their stories to entertain
Imagine Muhammad (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) knowing your name
What could be there more..

Gardens underneath which rivers flow
A goal so far, and yet so close
A journey worth taking, for those who know
Do you not wish to go..
for more?

For all the bounties, all the grace
All the pleasures, sights, smells and tastes
Will be forgotten, without a trace
as if frozen in time and space
When you see His Face

What an excellent Master, of a miserable slave
You forgot and He forgave
He gave you guidance, you still strayed
You asked for mercy, that He gave
and more…

Jannah

    Awwww, subhanaAllah!
    Its a sweet composition. It should be called, “And More….”

    “What an excellent Master, of a miserable slave
    You forgot and He forgave..”

    Beautiful MashaAllah!

    SubhaanAllah…this is simply beautiful and I have no words to express my happiness that there exist people who dream of Jannah and can express the beauty of their feelings in such a touching way. May Allah reward you manifold for sharing it and rekindling the flame of desire within my soul to reach out for this ultimate destination…

    Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh,

    Beautiful poem ma sha Allaah. It’s nice to be reminded sometimes about Jannah.

    This dunya distracts you so much from it but Al Hamdulillaah for making some of His slaves remind us of Jannah and its beauty and for The Highest of Goals.

    Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaah

    I wish I could praise you on my first of many comments on your wonderful blog…since this post, as those many before me have stated, has been an incredible read, and has had an immediate impact on my heart.

    No, I will still praise you, since the awareness of beauty is what truly brings to light its benefit. Isn’t the one who picks the pleasant rose the one who is praised, and not the thorny bush that grew it?

    Jazakallahukhair for this read😉
