The Iman that Saves

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

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Iman is a treasure so unique gift

Here is a favour priceless indeed

What other favour would compete in truth

With believing in Allah the Lords of the worlds

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Without a partner or likeness for Him

Without a son or assistant for Him

And without the concepts of How and Where

Without a beginning or an end for Him

And without a future or past for Him

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Eternal in the past al-Qayyum

And the ever living without an end

Allah is needless of all He made

The eternally independent Ghaniy Mutlaq

Allah is Absolute, Perfect and Pure

Infinitely Majestic Wara Ul Wara

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

 

 

But Iman is a seed in the field of life

And you are the Farmer seeking increase

Iman is a vehicle offered with love

By the Ever-Generous al-Karim

To aid the servants chosen by Him

On their journey to the eternal abodes

Which must end in one of the two

The Hellish Fire or Gardens of Bliss

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

You are on a journey my brothers in faith

You are all travellers towards your Lord

Every traveller must know for sure

That his journey end should be his goal

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Not all travellers safely arrived

Millions of journeys end on the road

Danger of travelling too numerous to count

Are in moments dogging your steps

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Accidents are happening claiming some lives

 And turning the able disabled for life

Robbers’ attacks increase by the day

Charting away properties, cash and lives

The journey of a man blessed with faith

Are in reality just like this

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Sinning is an accident damaging to faith

When sins are justified Iman is gone

Whenever a believer follows his nafs

In its passion and craving for sins

He loses everything Dunya and the Next

Shaytan is a robber armed to the teeth

Charting away Iman, Piety and Nur

 

 

 

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Now my brothers rise from sleep

By making your focus the fear of Allah

Oppose your ego no matter the cost

For Dunya is temporal you’ll soon be gone

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

The seed of Iman you must protect

To harvest abundance in the world to come

Plant your seed on the soil preferred

By living in a place with your end in view

Water the seed with the fluid of life

These are the Sunnats of Mustafa

The purest exemplar Rasulullah

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Remove the wild grasses here and there

By turning from sinning now and on

Your crop requires manure to grow

Dealing with creation with a morality pure

Are the chemicals you can best applied

This life is blessed truly my friend

If it is used to procure the next

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

When the seed of Iman are worked upon

As we’ve mentioned here in verse

You stand the chance to reap the fruit

That is eternal in Jannatul Firdaws

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah

 

Never join the heedless mind your steps

Your Iman is precious better than Gold

May your hearts find greatest delight

In the purest of wordings revealed to man

 

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illallah

La ilaha illa Allahu

Muhammadur Rasulullah                               (sallallahu alaihi wa salam)
