" ...those who attain to faith, and do good works, and enjoin upon one another the keeping to truth, and enjoin upon one another patience in adversity... "  Qur'an 103:3



Invitation to Success

 

 

 

Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
Is suddenly heard by the ears of those near and far.
Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!
To turn a deaf ear to this, would truly be bazaar.

 It echoes throughout the valleys,
 it ricochets off the land and the sky.
 "Come to Salah! Come to Success!"
 To this call, wouldn't it be most unfortunate not to reply?

 The sound of the adhaan shoots like arrows through the air,
 and it falls upon the listener's ears like the springtime rain.
 So let this water flow into your soul;
 don't you know that a dried up plant can't produce any grain?

It proclaims Allah's greatness and invites us to everlasting success.
Yet many turn a deaf ear to this call, while towards the vanishing dunyah,
their hands reach out to caress.

Its sound reaches for the sky like the birds,
and shines upon the earth like the sun.
So open your heart to the warmth of its rays;
come to success, the time for salah has begun.

We're busy working for our bodies,
yet what about answering this call for our souls.
The dust of the dunyah or the Gardens of the Jannah,
just what are our goals?

We have been invited to salah, the key to the doors of success.
What other invitation is more important than this to address?

This wonderful message is cried from a vast multitude of Minarets.
What else would we have before Allah if we ignored it,
other than a multitude of regrets?
 _________________________________________________________

Oh Allah, increase this ummah in our Love for You, Your deen, 
and Your last Messenger Muhammad, and Oh Allah, send Your peace and blessings upon him.
Ameen.
