Under the Veil
November 22, 2009

I have a veil on my face,
Beneath which my evil ways I embrace,

They do not know what I hide,
How different it would be if they had a look inside.

I have a veil on my face,
Beneath which all my sins take place.

When they are there I do only right,
All the wrong I do away from their sight.

I have a veil on my face,
Beneath which the whole world I can chase.

Hypocrisy is beginning to flow into each and every vain,
Yet I do not turn away from my sins to stop this growing pain.

I have a veil on my face,
Beneath which is hidden all my disgrace.

I will soon die from this disease unless I use the cure.
The medication is affirming Allah is always watching me for sure,
Then finally will my veil become pure.

I have a veil on my face,
Beneath which lays my Lords grace.


It’s a Shame
August 4, 2007

My ears hear a storm of devastation,

My eyes see a volcano of destruction.


Music, singing and swearing,

Backbiting, lying and cursing,

Are what my ears hear,

Only if we realized the end is so near,

Surely then there would have been more fear,

O Allah from these evil traits help us stay clear.


Free mixers, clubbers and alcoholics,

Gangsters, fraudsters and drug addicts,

Are what my eyes see,

This is today’s so called Muslim society,

We have become people free of piety,

Neglecting the rights of our Lord, what an absurdity!


We have dressed ourselves with a fake outfit, what a shame!

Yes we are Muslims, but it seems like it’s only by name,

We have become obsessed with our own fame,

Pride, arrogance and jealousy are within us, how lame?


We say we will change,

Yet we stay the same,

This is our life, how strange it is;

That we treat it like some game!

A Friend or Enemy?
August 4, 2007

He wanted me to burn in hell,

He wanted me to be among those who fell,

He wished to lead me astray,

From my Lords mercy he tried to keep me away.

Was he my friend or enemy?


It was because of him I was deprived,

He had deceived so many,

He kept coming at me until I died,

I still didn’t realize amidst all the agony,

Was he my friend or enemy?


He whispered evil to me every day & every night,

He defeated me without me even putting up a fight,

I didn’t even try,

I thought I can just ignore him and let him pass by,

Was he my friend or enemy?


This is why I was drowned in sins,

All along he was sitting back and laughing at me,

Then death hit me, now I can see,

But it’s too late,

There’s no going back to change my fate.


His task had reached its end,

This was his plan all along,

He wasn’t my friend,

I understood it all wrong,

He was the Devil, my arch enemy!
