Prayer of a child…

On my lips is coming a wish-like prayer Lord!
May my life burn like a candle-like fire!
With my breath may the darkness depart,
With my light let every corner ignite.
Let my breath add to the beauty of my nation

By: Faiza Kaleem

To them (the Household of the Prophet)
pertain the noblest of human virtues
described in the Qur'an,
and they are the treasures of the
Beneficent Allah.
When they speak, they speak the truth,
but when they keep quiet,
no one can out strip them.
The leader should speak truthfully to his people,
and put all his intelligence to work.
He should be one of those who work for
the next world,
because he has come from there
and would return to it.

My Two Angels

By: Aun Abbas

Poet: Khadeijah Stephens

I have two angels that follow me

wherever I may go,

One of them is quick to write,

the other one is slow.

The one who is quick to write

Is when I'm being good

The other doesn't like to write

Even when he should!

The one who doesn't like to write

Is when I being bad

He wants to hear me say "I'm sorry"

To my mum and dad.

And when I say, "I'm sorry Allah,

I won't do that again"

He rubs away my bad deed

Marked against my name.

The one who is quick to write,

Writes the good I try to do

Even, when it doesn't work out right

He writes that one down too

So when I get to Paradise

Waiting there for me

Will be lots of lovely presents -

Oh, how happy I will be!

Poetry of Khalil Gibran about children

By: zareen

Your children are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,

And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts.

For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their souls,

For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot 

visit, not even in your dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.

For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent 


The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends 

you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.

Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;

For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow 

that is stable. - Gibran



By Syeda bint-e-Moosa Moosavi

The birds are subject to His commands. He knows the number of their feathers and the count of their breaths. He has made their feet to stand on water and on land. He knows all their species. There is the crow, and the eagle, the pigeon, and the ostrich.

By Shaheera-tuz-Zahra

Fatimah, 8 years and her younger brother Hasan, 6 years, after finishing their homework came to their grandmother, who was busy in reading a book. Fatimah asked her: "grand mom, what are you reading"?
Grand mom: "oh my dear children, the flowers of my life, the light of my eyes, I was reading a book about Islam".
Hasan: "grand mom, what is Islam" he asked this while sitting in her lap.
Grand mom: "Islam is our religion; the only true faith in Allah's sight is Islam; and it consist of Usool and faro."
Fatimah: "what are Usool and Faru"?
Grand mom: "Usool means the roots and Faru means the branches, there are 5 roots and 10 branches of Islam".
Hasan: "Is Islam a tree which has roots and branches"?
Grand mom: "oh yes, my dear son, the spring of my days, Islam is a very strong tree"
Fatimah: "tell us about the roots and branches of His tree (Islam)".
Grand mom: "Tauheed; Adal; Nubuwwat; Imamat and Qayamat are its 5 roots. It means that we believe in oneness of God and that He is Just. For the guidance of His people he sent one lakh and twenty four thousand Prophets. Hazrat Adam (A.S) ios first while Hazrat Muhammad (Peace of Allah be upon him & His Aal) is the last of them. After His last Prophet, He had appointed Imams from his (P.B.U.H & His Aal) progeny, for the guidance of people. Qayamat means, a day will certainly come when everyone has to get for what he has done in the world."
The children were all ears to their grand mom's interesting and wonderful talk and said: "tell us more about Islam".
Grand mom: "They are 12 in number; they are pure, sinless, Allah's Proofs to His creatures, the beacons of light, the guides and the path towards Allah. People will be called for, on the day of Judgement with their Imam".
Hasan asked eagerly : "then who is the Imam of our era"?
Grand mom: "The 12th Imam Hazrat Imam Al-Mehdi (Ajjalallahu Ta'ala Farajahu), the son of Hazrat Imam Hasan Askari (AS) and Hazrat Narjis Khatoon (A.S)".
Fatimah: "Tell us more about the owner of the era who is the hope of the weak and oppressed".
The grand mom looked at her with great love and said: "h my dear daughter. Allah almighty had mentioned more then a hundred verses in Quran concerning the Awaited Imam Hujjatul Asr (A.S), among them in Sura An-noor:
"Allah has promised, to those among you who believe and work righteous deeds, that he will, of surety, appoint them successors in the land, (inheritance of power), as He granted it to those before them; that he will establish in authority their religion, the one which he has chosen for them; and that he will change (their state), after the fear in which they (lived), to one of security and peace…"
If you search through the Hadith of Holy Prophet (peace of Allah be upon him & his Aal), you will find more than 3000 hadith mentioning the awaited Imam, among these are:
"Al-Mehdi, among my sons, his name is my name, his nickname is my nickname, and he is the most resemblance to me, physically and morally".
"Al-Mehdi, among my sons, has a disappearance, when he reappears, he will fill the world with fairness and justice".
There are many names for the Imam, among them are: Al-Mehdi, (the guider) Al-Hujjah (the evidence)
Al-Qa'im (the up-riser) Al-Haadi (The guide)
Al-Muntazar (the awaited)
Sahib-Al Amer (the owner of the order)
Sahib-Al Zaman (The Controller of the era)
Immediately but yet very politely when the grand mom finished her talk, Fatimah said: "dear grand mom, you have enriched us by telling us about our Imam but we also want to know when & where was he born? And where is he now?"
The loving grand mom answered: "dear children, the awaited Imam was born in Samra which is a city of Iraq on 15th of Sha'abaan. Imam has two disappearances: a short disappearance; and the long disapperance. Ist 5 years of his life, he lived with his father Hazrat Imam Hasan Askari(AS). Then his short disappearance began from when he was 6 years of age until the death of the fourth deputy in year 329 higri. In these years He reached the people or vice versa through the four deputies, each had a certain period to be the connection between Imam and the people. The long disappearance began the year 329 hijri and is continuing until now. There are many cases that the Imam has met believers. He shall, one day, appear by the Command of Allah and shall bring peace, fairness and justice to Earth just as it is filled wit destruction, unfairness and oppression".
The children were very happy for these teachings about Imam-e-Zamana. So they kissed and0 thanked their grand mom.


By Syeda Bint-e-Moosa Moosavi.

Certainly, the Quran is wonderful in its outward form, and its inner meanings are profound. 

(Nahjul Balagha) 


By Syeda Bint-e-Moosa Moosavi..

.Allah is one. He is the greatest of all. He knows all. He sees what we do. He hears what we say. He is all-powerful. 
Allah is kind. He is loving. He feeds every body. We should obey Him. We should worship Him. He made this entire world. 



By Bint-e-Zainab.

My Mother

.I love my mother.
To me she is very dear
She is gentle and sweet
Jannat is under her feet
In her company I've a lot of fun
She saves me from the heat of sun
She is nice and Kind
I cannot elsewhere her find
She is for me a gift of God
Thanks very much a my Lord.


Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
