Mama…

Posted in Islamic Videos, Think about it on May 21, 2009 by Muslimah

Nasheed by Sami Yusuf 
video & lyrics
 

Blessed is your face
Blessed is your name
My beloved
Blessed is your smile
Which makes my soul want to fly
My beloved
All the nights
And all the times
That you cared for me
But I never realised it
And now its too late
Forgive me

Now Im alone filled with so much shame
For all the years I caused you pain
If only I could sleep in your arms again
Mother Im lost without you 

You were the sun that brightened my day
Now whos going to wipe my tears away
If only I knew what I know today
Mother Im lost without you 

Arabic part – English translation:

Mother… Mother… O my mother
How I long to see O mother
Your mother, Your mother, Your mother
Is the saying of your Prophet
In my heart, in my dreams
You are always with me mother

You went and left me
O light of my eyes
O comfort of my nights
You went and left me
Who, other than you, will embrace me?
Who, other than you, will cover me?
Who, other than you, will guard over me?
Your pardon mother, forgive me

May Allah forgive all of our mothers, make them stronger and give them happiness and ease in this life and in the next life in Jannah insha Allah.

May He help us to love them, and to be patient with them, and to be compassionate with them, to help them when they need it, when they ask for help or when they don’t, to be dutiful sons and daughters to them, and to love them unconditionally.

Get up and hug your mom right now. If you can’t, call her. If she has already passed away, make du’aa that Allah forgives her and forgives you insha Allah and unites both of you (and us) in Paradise, with all the mothers of the Ummah.

love her . . before its too late!

Graffiti for spreading da’wah

Posted in Islamic Images on May 6, 2009 by Muslimah

Aerosol artist Mohammed Ali has` a very unique graffiti style, his inspiration is Arabic script from the Holy Qur’an. His work merges Western graffiti style with Islamic calligraphy in a unique fusion. Ali uses the walls of Birmingham, his home town, as a public gallery to spread his message. Moreover, Ali was recently honoured in a ceremony recognising “unsung heroes” of the Muslim community in Britain.
