Let us tread the path to Paradise...

Praise be to Allaah - the Lord of the Worlds, the Creator of this Universe
The Writer of the unmatched Book containing truth and elegance in each of it's verse
Glorified is He who created the beautiful angels as well as the tiny worms
"Indeed Allah has created the human in the best of forms."  
[At Teen: 4]

He blessed man with wisdom to differentiate the right from wrong
And gifted the sources of Divine guidance to use all along
The Quran - an unparalleled guide and the Sunnah - a never outdated trend
Do not belittle these gifts when its time to make a needed amend

When He sent the final Messenger (pbuh) for His Message to be delivered
He knew that it would be everlasting which need not ever be altered
On perfect intervals He revealed the aayahs of the Noble Quran
Every bit of His beloved's (pbuh) life was a part of His wisest plan  

Seeking knowledge He made obligatory upon every sane Muslim
You are responsible to find the right sources to acquire this ilm
After being blessed with all you need to make your way to Jannah
It would be a great loss to say on The Day, "I knew this not, O' Allaah!"  

The Messenger (pbuh) did say that he has completed the religion for us
Adding to it or removing from it after he left is only a needless fuss
His companions loved him more, they were called the best of generations
And they never venerated him through innovated practices or actions

The wise founders of all Madhabs never commanded Taqleed
They were the followers of sunnah; their contributions are a treasure indeed
But they warned their followers not to blindly follow their Madhab
They said, "When the hadith is authentic then that is our Madhab"

The Prophet (pbuh) warned us against the grave sin called "bid'ah"
Innovation in religion is disobeying Allaah and disrespecting the sunnah
Every sunnah takes you closer to Jannah, an obstacle on the path do not hire
"Every innovation is a misguidance and every misguidance leads to Hell fire."  
[Saheeh Muslim]

Your journey starts from birth till you are laid down upon the "final berth"
Ticket to the destination of peace can be booked till your very last moment on earth
From Cradle to Grave is the journey covered within a decreed time in this world
Do refrain from packing things which might ruin you when the records are unfurled!

This life is truly unpredictable with ups and downs all along the way
When the comforts would be replaced with adversities, we never can say
But, know that this life is temporary which leads to an eternal one
Comforts there will be eternal too, if the forbidden here you shun

Islaam is not a label to live with, because you were born a Muslim
Paradise is not promised to you just because you were born a Muslim
The pleasures of Paradise are boundless after a continuous struggle in this world
And the best of the rewards for Muslims will be seeing the Face of their Lord unveiled

 ... Umm Hashir (Firdaus)
