All praises are for you Allah

By: Sadia Rizvi


All praises are for you Allah, how I hope that you are there.

For sinful though I know I am, your displeasure I cannot bear.

Never, till this moment, did I realize how much I've strayed.

Never till now was I more conscious off all those times when I should have prayed.

For sins are like heavy baggage, that one carries through life, the airport.

Why didn't I realize sooner that this earth is but a place of sport?

Ya Allah! Forgive me. Save me from the fire of Hell.

Ya Allah! Protect me. From myself for my soul is weak.

Let me not falter ever, for Jan'ah is the abode I seek.

Ya Allah! Please help me. For I don't understand and thus I fear.

What happened to all those moments when I never doubted that you were near?

My actions once were guided, by my faith which, once, was strong.

Ya Allah! Please guide me. What happened? What went wrong?

Each footstep that I used to take, I took with you ever near my side.

The Qur'an was my faithful companion, Rasoolallah my beloved guide.

How I yearn for those bygone days Allah, for I know that the day comes near.

When we'll each receive our just rewards, and the truth will stand sparkling clear.

Life is like a spider's web Allah, we get caught in its tricky snare.

So thoroughly are we disillusioned, time for salat we cannot spare.

I sit here and I wonder, Ya Allah! Why did I fall so low?

What happened to my faith Allah? Where did my Iman go?

In this earthly life of ours, so often does sin seem right.

Falsehood seems to be the truth, as if days are confused with night.

Man is an imperfect creature. And thus, man shall always wrong.

For the road to Jan'ah is rocky, and the journey seems awfully long.

Ya Allah! Our creator, we are all just pieces of clay.

Please help us with our steps in life, and let us not loose our way.

All praises are for you Allah, I know that you are near.

I know that you have read my heart, and my words I know you hear.


Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."
