POETRY: The Liberator

africa-day

To be liberated means that we can clearly see, 
That we should follow a leader for all of  humanity. 

His name is Prophet Muhammad (Upon Him Be Peace): 
ALLAH raised him with Truth, so falsehood must cease! 

ALLAH sent to His Last Prophet, the Mightiest Message of  All… 
His heart was Right, so he heard ALLAH’s Call. 

Some people said Prophet Muhammad was mad and possessed: 
His wife Khadijah comforted him, for she knew he was blessed. 

Prophet Muhammad delivered ALLAH’s Message throughout the land; 
It is the Light of  Truth that will always stand! 

Prophet Muhammad taught humanity to constantly strive for Right; 
ALLAH, The One and Only God has everyone in His Sight. 

So always teach The Holy Qur’an from now to your death, 
And live ALLAH’s Universal Message with every breath! 

“May the Peace and Blessings of  ALLAH be upon Prophet Muhammad.”

by Muhammad Ali

Poetry: Lessons from a Donkey

james-jacques-joseph-tissot-journey-of-the-magi-79899

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.

Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

MORAL : Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up. Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

1. Free your heart from hatred – Forgive.
2. Free your mind from worries – Most never happens.
3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less from people but more from yourself.
