Beautiful Poem - The ABC of ISLAM


Here is the beautiful poem -  the ABC of ISLAM

A is for ALLAH
LORD of the Universe, who is One,
HE made the earth, stars, and sun
HE made angels to worship and pray,
HE made man from a dab of clay

B is for Bilal
Bilal is that tall, brave African man,
Islam freed him and gave him iman
Calling the Muslims to come and pray,
Was his duty each night and day

C is for Children
Black, white, red, yellow, and brown,
Better than the jewels in a crown
Laughing or crying, short or tall,
ALLAH loves children, one and all

D is for Du'a
Remembering ALLAH all nights and days,
By giving HIM our thanks and praise
Thank ALLAH with "Al Hamdulillah"
And praise HIM with "Subhanallah

E is for Earth
With its mountains, rivers, and seas,
Animals, birds, fruits, and trees
They all declare ALLAH's Might,
Following HIS laws, wills, and light

F is for Faith
That which the Muslims call Iman,
Is in the heart of the believing man
Will come from his lip and hand,
Love for ALLAH pouring out like sand

G is for Gabriel
An angel created by ALLAH from light,
His duty is to serve ALLAH all day and night
To Prophet Muhammad he did appear,
To bring mankind the Holy Qur'an so dear

H is for Heaven
GOD's garden of joy, peace, and love,
The home for Muslim's souls above
The path to this heavenly place
Is faith in ALLAH's guidance and grace

I is for Islam
A way of life for all of who,
Give to ALLAH the praise that is due
We worship and pray five times a day,
Because we know it is the best way

J is for Jesus
Peace be upon him, 'Isa, the son of Maryam,
To his people ALLAH's word did he carry
By ALLAH's help he made the sick well,
So people would believe what he had to tell

K is for Ka'bah
First house of ALLAH in Makkah was made,
By Ibrahim and Isma'il the stones were laid
Millions of believers from every race,
Come for Hajj to this extra special place

L is for Life
A precious gift from ALLAH to you,
Don't waste it, HE knows what you do
Don't chase pleasure or forget ALLAH,
No matter how little, say "Al-Hamdulillah

M is for Muhammad
Peace be upon him, Abdullah's son,
From ALLAH's enemies he did not run
Of all the Prophets he was the last,
Islam his message which we hold fast

*The Unconditional Love*

What does An Unconditional Love mean? How do we describe it? If you really want to figure out about this, below I quote Dr. Guy A. Pettitt's some points of view about this matter.

The Unconditional Love

Unconditional love is enlarging the self, and an act of will. It is not a feeling or an emotional reaction. Think of the difference between falling in love, and growing in love through all difficulties and conflicts.

Unconditional love is an act of mental and spiritual will, it cannot and does not take place upon the emotional level, which is where the problems first register. Unconditional love is extending oneself in the service of the spiritual growth of oneself and/or another, independently of reward or the behavior of others.

To truly love in this way could include:

1. To call forth a sense of responsibility, and a capacity to make wise choices.

2. To point out weaknesses people have, - but very caringly so that the best in the person is drawn forth in response, rather than resistance.

3. To challenge people to strive and attain, and discover their true selves..

4. To help people work on their habits and weaknesses so that they become stronger. To show them how to use their will correctly.

5. To help people learn to cooperate, and thus to overcome their little egos.

6. To engage people in working for humanity.

7. To teach people how to overcome their prejudices, resentments, separative tendencies, vanities, illusions, and other blocks to their own joy.

To truly love in this way does not mean:

1. To surrender to weakness.

2. To accept things that are harmful.

3. To encourage weakness or irresponsibility.

4. To accept dirt or ugliness in thought, feeling or action.

5. To exploit or use people.

6. To put people into sleep.

7. To tolerate laziness.
