Finding Peace

Allah is “As Salaam”,
The Source of Peace,
While seeking His help,
If your faith doesn’t increase.

Realise it’s not Him,
He doesn’t hinder your way,
It’s your sins and poor conviction,
That lead you further astray.

Remember His Compassion?
When gloom was closing in,
No-one was there for you,
You didn’t know where to begin.

When your heart couldn’t rest,
Felt stressed and depressed,
For having gone through the test,
You felt imprisoned and suppressed.

That moment came your way,
You couldn’t take it any more,
When you were in utter dismay,
Like you were never before.

He illuminated your path,
And guided you through,
Saved you from His Wrath,
This was His Love for you.

You’re tested again in life,
It has come your way,
Will you mourn or will you strive?
Will you be patient and humbly pray?
And seek help through patience and prayer, and indeed, it is difficult except for the humbly submissive [to Allah ]. (Al Baqarah:45)
