[] A beautiful poem - I'm Malakul Maut "



A beautiful poem - I'm Malakul Maut "

It was early in the morning at four,
When death knocked upon a bedroom door.

Who is there? The sleeping one cried.
I'm Malkul Maut (Angel Of Death), let me inside.

At once, the man began to shiver,
As one sweating in deadly fever,

He shouted to his sleeping wife,
Don't let him take away my life.

Please go away, O Angel of Death!
Leave me alone; I'm not ready yet.

My parents and family on me depends,
Give me a chance, O please prepense!

The angel knocked again and again,
Friend! I'll take your life without a pain,

Tis your soul Allah requires,
I come not with my own desires..

Bewildered, the man began to cry,
O Angel I'm so afraid to die,

I'll give you gold and be your slave,
Don't send me to the unlit grave.

Let me in, O Friend! The Angel said,
Open the door; get up from your bed,

If you do not allow me in,
I will walk through it, like a Jinn.

The man held a gun in his hand,
Ready to defy the Angel's stand..

I'll point my gun, towards your head,
You dare come in; I'll shoot you dead.

By now the Angel was in the room,
Saying, O Friend! Prepare for you doom.

Foolish man, Angels never die,(except when Allah will give death to everyone on day of kayamat)
Put down your gun and do not sigh.
Why are you afraid! Tell me O man,
To die according to Allah's plan?
Come smile at me, do not be grim,
Be Happy, to return to Him.

O Angel! I bow my head in shame;
I had no time to take Allah's Name.

From morning till dusk, I made my wealth,
Not even caring for my own health.

Allah's command I never obeyed,
Nor five times a day I ever prayed.

Ramadan came and a Ramadan went,
But I had no time to repent.

The Hajj was already FARD on me,
But I would not part with my money.

All charities I did ignore,
Taking usury more and more.

Sometimes I sipped my favorite wine,
With flirting women I sat to dine...

O Angel! I appeal to you,
Spare my life for a year or two.

The Laws of Quran I will obey,
I'll begin my SALAT this very day.

My Fast and Hajj, I will complete,
And keep away from self-conceit.

I will refrain from usury,
And give all my wealth to charity,

Wine and wenches I will detest,
Allah's oneness I will attest.

We Angels do what Allah demands,
We cannot go against His commands..

Death is ordained for everyone,
Father, mother, daughter or son.

I'm afraid this moment is your last,
Now be reminded, of your past,

do understand your dreadful fears,
But it is now too late for your tears.

You lived in this world, two score and more,
Never did to you, your people adore.

Your parents, you did not obey,
Hungry beggars, you turned away.

Your two ill-gotten, female offspring,
In nightclubs, for livelihood they sing.

Instead of making many more Muslims,
You made your children non-Muslims?

You did ignore the Mua'dhin Adhaan,
Nor did you read the Holy Quran.

Breaking promises all your life,
Backbiting friends, and causing strife

From hoarded goods, great profits you made,
And for your poor workers, you underpaid.

Horses and cars were your leisure,
Moneymaking was your pleasure.

You ate vitamins and grew more fat,
With the very sick, you never sat.

A pint of blood you never gave,
Which could a little baby save?

O Human, you have done enough wrong,
You bought good properties for a song.

When the farmers appealed to you,
You did not have mercy, tis true.

Paradise for you? I cannot tell,
Undoubtedly you will dwell in hell.

There is no time for you to repent,
I'll take your soul for which I am sent.

The ending however, is very sad,
Eventually the man became mad

With a cry, he jumped out of bed,
And suddenly, he fell down dead.

O Reader! Take moral from here,
You never know, your end may be near

Change your living and make amends
For heaven, on your deeds depends.

[] 10 CHRISTmas Commandments !!!

10 Christmas Commandments !!!

1.  You shall not leave "Christ" out of Christmas, making it, "Xmas." To most minds X stands not for
Christ, but for the algebraic unknown. 2.  You shall prepare your soul for Christmas.
Verily most of us spend much time and money getting gifts
ready but a few seconds in preparing our souls. 3.  You shall not let Santa Claus take the place
of Christ
, lest Christmas become a fairy tale rather than
a sublime reality in the spiritual realm. 4.  You shall give yourself with your gifts.
Your love, your personality, and your service shall
increase the value of your gifts an hundred fold and
he that receives it shall treasure it forever.
5.  You shall not value your gifts by their cost,
for many shall signify love that is more blessed
and beautiful than silver and gold.
6.  You shall not burden your servant.
The shop girl, the mail carrier, and the merchant
shall have your consideration.
7.  You shall not neglect the needy. Let your
bountiful blessing be shared with the many who will go
hungry and cold unless you are generous at Christmas. 8.  You shall not neglect your church.
Its Christmas services are planned to help spiritualize the Christmas season for you, your family, and your friends. 9.  You shall be as a little child. Christmas is the
day of the Christ Child; not until you has become in spirit as a
little child are you ready to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. 10.  You shall give your heart to Christ.
Let your Christmas list have Christ at the top and your heart
as the gift. In so doing, you are as the Wise Men of Old and
verily you shall find yourself born again on Christmas Day.
~ Author Unknown
Anyone keeping these commandments
is sure to have a blessed Christmas.
May God Bless You, Your Family and
Your Friends the Way He Has Blessed Us
