💐 In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful

💌 Allah the Almighty loves those with good character,

Those believers who strive to maintain proper manners,

Who try their best to behave decently with others,

Striving to pass Allah’s tests with Sabr and Shukr.

~*~ 

Those blessed with fine conduct know when to be fair and kind,

So they’re not taken advantage of by the unkind.

Kindness doesn’t mean you give others gifts all the time,

But you treat them well, as you avoid gossip and lies.

~*~ 

If you have nothing nice to say, you remain quiet.

Good character inspires you to defend and protect,

Like a defender of the weak, bullied and oppressed.

With Akhlaaq, you’re not the type of friend who gets jealous.

~*~ 

Upon noticing someone’s flaws, you first check yourself,

Understand you’re not perfect, then advise them to help.

Your advice is one-on-one. You never mean to hurt.

Mistreating others only makes one’s self-hatred worse.

~*~ 

From good character is wanting others to succeed,

To thrive for Allah in both worlds, through faith and good deeds.

You enjoin right, forbid wrong, remind generously,

And welcome criticism to improve eagerly.

~*~ 

You dislike what Allah hates: Dhulm, rumors, backbiting,

Gossiping, kibr, laughing at others’ shortcomings,

Stealing, breaking promises without valid reasons,

Suspicion, and looking down on Allah’s creation.

~*~ 

From traits that Allah loves: Patience, courage for His sake,

Gentleness, gratitude, truth in what you do and say,

Mercy, not envying others for what Allah gave,

And knowledge that Allah is our Judge on Judgment Day.

~*~

💐 In The Name Of Allah The Most Gracious The Most Merciful


💌 Depression can reach anyone regardless of age,

And this sadness is not always shown on a sad face.

Extreme sorrow, grief and heartbreak are often displayed

In many forms and subtle, inconspicuous ways.

~•~

Some souls manifest depression through overeating,

Resorting to bad habits to soothe their hurt feelings.

Others can’t be bothered to cook, lost motivation,

So they starve and oversleep to flee from their problems.

~•~

While some depressed youths injure themselves to feel better,

Despising themselves and doubting what they can offer,

Other anguished souls disguise their troubles through laughter,

Posting viral videos to be cheered for by others.

~•~

Strong emotions, if not controlled, can lead to trouble;

Preference for dunya to thoughts that are suicidal;

Impatience with Allah’s Plans to being ungrateful;

And ignorance of Sabr to feeling sorrowful.

~•~

Antidepressants aren’t the best cure for sadness.

Peace can be attained without needing to be famous.

No need for fancy credentials to find happiness,

When getting sad now and then is part of Allah’s tests.

~•~

Better than being happy is gladly contented,

Satisfied with Allah as our God Whom we worship.

Keep calm through Dhikr, having some Surahs recited,

And tame your nafs with Taqwa and Islamic knowledge.

~•~

It’s okay to cry and have mood swings once in a while.

Just prevent sadness from making you think of suicide.

Think of Allah and gifts He gave to feel more inspired,

And pray for eternal bliss in Jannah Paradise.

~•~

📖 Abu Huraira RadhiAllahu ‘anhu narrated: Allah’s noble Messenger Muhammad SallAllahu 'alaihi wa sallam said, “Nothing afflicts a Muslim of hardship, nor illness, nor anxiety, nor sorrow, nor harm, nor distress, nor even the pricking of a thorn, but that Allah will expiate his sins by it.

i know you’ve been chasing after so many what if’s— what if you choose wrong? what if you can’t choose right? i’ve never once judged you for being you, not once, why start now? we’re all stuck here and left to our own devices. i know you have a hard time falling to sleep, your mind is a steady engine, but sometimes you’re just afraid of the nightmares. waking up alone and falling asleep alone has never been strangers for you, one and the same, you’d say. it doesn’t have to be today, you don’t have to solve everything in one day. take it one step at a time, take your time. all of your worst fears are just that— they are fears. what does it mean to love? i have contemplated that single most important question my whole entire existence. what does it mean to provide love? to give out love? to receive love? to know love? to ask for something unconditional, but to only be forgetten in two day— even leaves take longer to change with the seasons. even flowers take longer to die once plucked. how do you want to be loved? i asked you what you loved most about yourself and you said your smile. that has to be it. enough sun for the roses, enough love for yourself. of course smiling has to be it, a signal for greater things. our happiness represented with teeth and curves— we are just tiny moments inside of even tinier moments, a single burst of energy, sitting outside in the rain for a little reprieve. you don’t need to be perfect to ask for love, so just ask for it. you don’t need to have your shit together immediately, it takes time to make time for your time to be your time. you don’t need to be anything but yourself. inside of your brain, inside of your heart, inside of your own body— what are you really afraid of? being alone does sound sad, but you really aren’t that alone. a need to be needed, a want to be wanted by someone who doesn’t deserve us at our best if they can’t handle us at our worst. i know you’re just trying to make sense of the rain as of late, but bees don’t compare rose petals to tulip petals— they’re all one and the same. the sun doesn’t choose to shine on things, it just does. it just does these things. an overbearing presence, it doesn’t choose to be warm, it just is. how do you want to be loved? hold that answer deep inside of your chest and let it blossom and bloom. because whatever you decide to come to terms with, i’ll always be here for you. i don’t know why you trust me so much, but i think it’s simply because you just know. if you can know that much about me, you can know that much about yourself, and you can know that about him or her or them. trust your intuition, trust yourself and all of your decisions. your word should always be as good as gold because without that, you’ll have nothing and you have never been that to me. always trust yourself. there is no in between, you either do, or you don’t. choose wisely and let your day do the rest. i love you. even if you’re at fault or believe that you’re a terrible person. you will carry with you the might of your beliefs and joys. don’t be afraid to be yourself. you gotta love yourself.

—always.

When silence is best friend & darkness is the partner.

When the roads don’t have destiny but they remains dynasty.

Tears are frozen in summer and winter have warm gesture

When Luna knows all you had have never told anyone…you passes in time but time doesn’t passes…

I asked this question some years ago
and never found an answer
because I never looked for one,
but it is pleasant,
living with this question.

In this world of men and women/when life just isn’t worth living/people crowd you from all sides/you’re the one who needs a guide.

People staring you in the eye/trying to see if you don’t lie/don’t be yourself, you have to conform/then they say you weren’t even born.

If this my friend is happening to you/and you don’t know where to run or what to do/Take these plastic people, take them by the hand/Twist them bend them, it’s your turn to take a stand.

Tell them that you want to be/not a slave but someone free/To live in a world of peace and love/Where no one is below, no one is above.

Where people can walk hand in hand/There is harmony, not hate, all over this land.

Yes my brothers and sisters, I would do this/The plastic people cannot persist/They have no real convictions, no real mind/That is why, you must strike them blind.

You have to be free/to live like you want to be.

———————————————————————-

I wrote ‘Plastic People’ in 1969 when I was a senior in high school. I wrote it for the school literary mag. The teacher-in-charge would not publish it. She thought it was too controversial.

I am a gay man,

If I were to state that,

You would tell me all the same things

That gay relationships are less holy,

That it is forbidden in the Torah,

I used to fight you,

Say only this one act was forbidden by the Torah,

That our relationships were just as holy,

Just as loving as yours.

I still believe that, inherently.

But I don’t act it.

See, when you push someone into the depths

They’d do terrible things to get afloat

When you push someone into the shadows,

They’d do terrible things for even a sliver of light

What do gay frum men do?

Well the best of us might have a wedding,

Without kiddushin, without a ketubah,

No Sheva brachot,

They’re the exception.

Others of us get married to women,

Then pursue short connections with men,

I talk to married chassidic men on Grindr,

And I know I’ll never stand under a chuppah with them,

Maybe we will fuck a few times,

Maybe we will get too scared,

Maybe I’ll fall in love and get burned,

It’s not an ideal,

It’s not the epitome of holiness,

It doesn’t do justice to us being b’tzelem elokim,

Though we are,

So while I don’t believe gay relationships

Are inherently any less holy,

While I believe they can be beautiful,

That two frum men can stand under the chuppah and promise to love each other forever,

He tells me he thinks love is not for him,

And he tells me he thinks he will end up marrying a woman on our first date,

And I think, they have pushed us to this.

They have pushed our relationships into hidden spaces,

And with every rejection that comes back

To the fact that frum gay men do not find love with each other,

I start to believe it,

I start to believe our relationships are somehow

Less than holy,

I stop whispering chatan al chatan

In Lecha Dodi, and feeling shame,

At altering our liturgy,

Mutter chatan al kallah

And feel hopeless,

Alienated from my tradition,

I watch the chuppah from the car,

With another short connection

And I know I will never have that,

Not with another frum man,

And I hear their words,

It’s against the Torah,

But when I look at who to blame,

I look to above.

I look in our books,

And then I look all around,

At the members of my shul,

Begging them to find the spark of the divine

In me

Before I forget it even existed
