August 1st

Fight the urge to share with all,
the person you are/became.
A sickness in the heart it is
what you should have tamed.
The urge to tell, inform and share
So that they know, recognise and care-
for some of the masks you may wear.
Ask yourself whenever you talk,
what you really want to bring across.
If it’s merely portraying you, yourself
You’ve already lost.


Dua for Wearing New Garments


A Mahkmoom Heart

On the authority of Abdullaah bin ‘Amr who said: Someone asked, “O Messenger of Allaah! Who are the best of the people?” He answered: “Everyone who has a mahkmoom heart and a truthful tongue.” They asked: “We know what a truthful tongue is, but what is a mahkmoom heart?”

He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said: “A pious, pure one, which has no sin in it nor is it oppressive, nor does it have hatred and jealousy.”
