What if the Prophet Added you as a Friend?

Would you press accept?
Or would you stay awake late at night, pondering it before you slept?
Will you be tempted to press ignore?
Will you feel at war?

Will you feel happy that the prophet thought of you as a part of his ummah, his friend?
Will you start to make amends?
Or will you be worried about what he will think of your profile?
Will it become your biggest trial?

Will you finally delete that horoscope application?
Will you change your favourite quotes to glorify creation?
Will you delete those late night webcam pictures without the hijab?
Will you look at your life and feel a stab?

As you add the qu’ran as your favourite book?
Will you feel like a fake, a crook?
Will you take a few days to make sure everything is within Islamic law?
Will your heart finally begin to thaw?

Will you delete your old conversations?
Or will you feel nothing at all and continue following your temptations?
Will you press ignore, And not think about it anymore?

No reason to worry about that possibility occurring 
The prophet has long departed
But Allah is always there Watching you and listening to your prayers

You don’t need to add Him as your friend With Allah,
you can never hide or pretend He doesn’t need your permission to view 
Your wall-to-walls, your pictures, your comments, and your statuses too!

-Marwa Saad


Before & After – ISLAM

I see now my quest in life had been in vain.
I desired pleasure and material gain.
For those around me, my goals where plain,
I tried to achieve them all without regard to pain.

I wanted the glitter and glamour this world provides.
I couldn’t see the treasures that all this hides.
My ‘Quest for wealth’ – could never buy what I needed most.
My ‘Search for fame’ – was like trying to catch a ghost.

But when my prayers were for ‘Guidance’ from the ‘One Above’.
I found success in ‘Total Submission’ to the Will of Him — in Love.
I found all the riches, glory and happiness that one might require,
But most of all I discovered my real heart’s desire.

I found the which is the secret of Life’s Lease,
I found the One Who Gave all, when He gave me PEACE.
It finally came after all those years of trouble and strife
That to do “ISLAM” is the PURPOSE OF LIFE !! ♥
