The Broken Wing - A reply

The Broken Wing – A reply

To the bird with one wing
Allah Swt does make pair all things
Pause awhile, reflect and think
Not all pairs manage to have "40 winks"

Allah Swt is most fair
one wing or two is not an affair
There is a blessing in all these
or maybe just for you to maintain an inner peace

To the one winged bird
not the second nor the third
Allah swt only sees the obedience
among all HIS good servants

The trial and tribulation is not for a wimp
steadfast and persevere is the main theme
How many two winged birds, have their light so dim
the wings argue and often do not click as a team

Allah swt blesses the one winged
the heart that is pure and not wicked*
Don't just follow the flock
to beat that biological clock

The important thing is not to stray
the end of the tunnel, there is a ray
Keep with Allah and Rasulullah
One wing will be two in due time, insha'allah

Don't give up hope for a suitor
If you can't fly, walk to your creator
Not all wings seem as it is
the phase you undergo will soon cease

If you manage to find your other wing
Don't it make you fly around a ring
From Allah swt great things are installed
Don't fly if you know you'll fall

In history we learnt about many great sufis
devoted to Allah swt without a fee
The bird with a broken wing must maintain this attitude
because the reward from Allah swt is great in magnitude**

I am just a humble servant
I pray that my reply is relevant
This is what I observe from the poem "The Broken Wing"
This is my thoughts as a human being


*It is narrated on the authority of Amirul Mu'minin, Abu Hafs 'Umar bin al-Khattab, radiyallahu 'anhu, who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu 'alayhi wasallam, say:"Actions are (judged) by motives (niyyah), so each man will have what he intended. Thus, he whose migration (hijrah) was to Allah and His Messenger, his migration is to Allah and His Messenger; but he whose migration was for some worldly thing he might gain, or for a wife he might marry, his migration is to that for which he migrated." [Al-Bukhari & Muslim]

** Al-Quran (57:11) Who is he that will loan to Allah a beautiful Loan? For (Allah) will increase it manifold to his credit, and he will have (besides) a liberal reward.

sufism teaching

And the second thing is I have read on net that it is written in holy 'Quran' to kill people if they do not believe in your God. I found such a quote on Is that true? Plz who really have something true to say answer and don't pass any wrong comments or remarks. It would be better if Muslims answer for the obvious reason they would know more.

My dear sister! (I'm assuming it's a sister who wrote this as it says 'Firdaus' at the end of the poem.)

There are moments in time where you encounter things that truely seem to touch you deep in your heart or touch your soul so to speak.
I find this entry to be one of those things. Though such moments are a rerity to me when they do occur I have Allah, The Guide, to thank for it! And Allah did create such thing called 'reason'. Right now you are the reason for this inner joy I got through reading this poem. It felt very personal reading it and it spoke to my heart!

..simply, Thank you sister! For the beautiful thought!
May Allah t'alla purify our intentions and guide us to that which pleases Him! Ameen!!!
