Safe-Landing

Bismillahi wa salatu wa salamu ‘ala Rasulillah wa ‘ala jami’il ambiyai wal-mursalin wa ‘ala ahlihi wa sahabihi ajmain, amin.

Life is drifting away like clouds

The breaths of man are his steps to the grave

What are you doing to safely arrive

This is the right moment check yourself

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

He who counts tomorrow as part of his life

Has failed to give death its proper due

How many arrive the day but are gone by the night

Every moment is dangerous let us prepare

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Every traveler on a journey strange

Focuses his host for a blissful stay

Allah is our host from the moment of death

For a blissful eternity live pleasing your Lord

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Be mindful of Allah wherever you are

Life is a grace that is sure to end

Listen well to the silent foot of time

Man remains a traveler whatever his state

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

He who is blind to the Akhirah until the grave

Remain with Allah eternally blind

Dunya is a poison coated with sweets

Millions of its seekers ended in ruins

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

All existence my brothers be warned

Are mere delusions soonest to fade

But Allah is eternal never to end

So with all your vigour serve your Lord

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

A true man of Iman seeks safety first

Life is a journey that is ever unsafe

Be careful my brothers of your actions and words

Only the careful safely arrive

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

A sincere believer thinks safety first

As he travels through the high-ways of life

Act always with caution fearing your Lord

Only the cautious safely arrive

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Today is for action never relent

Evaluation follows tomorrow do not forget

Celebration eternal comes at the end

Or endless tribulation please be warned

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

The worldly is paltry however big

And devotions are lofty however few

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

 

 

Abandoning the worldly to please your Lord

Is the hallmark of wisdom let us be wise

Dunya is nothing taken for real

It is a castle built in the air

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Dunya is specious and its glories a lie

So seek refuge with Allah against it ruse

Piety and devotions are gains of life

All else are vanities open your eyes

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Life is a favour and a blessing indeed

If it is spent to please our Lord

And it is a ladder to eternal regrets

If in negligence we arrive the grave

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Where is piety in this age of sin

Entertainments and wealth are all we crave

The people of wisdom are never deceived

By the sun of Dunya setting at noon

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

The death of others young or old

The passing on of others far and near

Is enough a lesson for hearts alive

Life is a drama that is never restaged

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Let not your life ebbs to a sudden end

Competing with the heedless for worldly gold

Your true possessions are the services done

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

 

Nothing worth having ie easily got

Diamond is precious and the rarest of stone

The pleasure of Allah is the highest of gains

Consistence in piety is the price attached

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

The journey to eternity is already on course

Man remains a traveler asleep and awake

Why this happiness in our worldly homes

Seeing that our destination is the grave

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

The worldly is never for anybody’s keep

Today it comes and tomorrow it is gone

Seek then the eternal with your wealth and time

Life is ephemeral we’ll soon be done

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Nothing is valued my brothers in faith

Like what is left of a Muslim’s life

Act then with taqwa your moments from now

However you land is all your make

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah
