Salaam Alaykum,

There are a few Qabeelah's who've come fresh out of Love Notes...so let's read some fresh poetry.

*Married people can read it to their spouses.*

*Singles can memorize it and save it for later use.*

I don't intend to make this thread Ibn Hazm's book of poetry. The reason I am posting two of his poems here is because I have to link them to another thread (I have a question regarding it). Hope you guys have something besides Ibn Hazm's to share. His poetry can be read on the Ring of Dove website.


True Love
(Poem 1)

http://www.muslimphilosophy.com/hazm/dove/bar.gif
True love is not a flower
That springeth in an hour;
Its flint will not strike fire
At casual desire.

Love is an infant rare
Begotten, slow to bear;
Its lime must mingle long
Before its base is strong.

And then not soon will it
Be undermined, and split;
Firm will its structure stand,
Its fabric still expand.

This truth is readily
Confirmed, because we see
That things too quickly grown
Are swiftly overthrown.

Mine is a stubborn soil
To plough with arduous toil,
Intractible indeed
To tiller and to seed.

But once the roots begin
To strike and thrive therein,
Come bounteous rain, come drought,
The lusty stem will sprout.

In Love With Two?

(Poem 2)

http://www.muslimphilosophy.com/hazm/dove/bar.gif


He lies, and perjures all that's true;
Who swears he is in love with two
He shares in falsehood equally
With that damned miscreant, Manichee.

The heart has not sufficient place
To hold two sweets in one embrace,
Nor may the second love affair
Claim with the first an equal share.

For as the Reason is unique
It cannot know, though it may seek,
Another Power to create
Besides the All Compassionate.

And so the Heart, that's likewise one,
Is constituted to love none
Except that single darling dear,
Be he afar or be he near.

The man who claims a dual love
Is thus, as these examples prove,
A doubtful follower of Love's laws,
A traitor to Religion's cause.

And by that selfsame reasoning
True Faith is too a single thing;
He who a second serves as well
Condemns himself an infidel.

Someone anonymous wrote this poem about Qadr and Marriage. Enjoy.





...RAHUL...



DREAMS DREAMING TO EXIST
A PAINFUL LONGING SUSPENDED
UNTIL THAT MOMENT
WHEN QADR WILL TAKE OVER
AND EYES WILL MEET EYES
AND LOOKS WILL TOUCH LOOKS
AND SILENCE WILL SING LOUD
TWO SETS OF EYES IN THE EYE OF A STORM
TWO SOULS COMPLETED
TWO BODIES SEPARATED
AND QADR WILL BE FULFILLED
FULFILLED AS WRITTEN 50,000 YEARS
BEFORE THE WORLD UNDER OUR FEET WAS CREATED
SHHHHHHHHHH
IT'S OKAY
SHHHHHHHHHH
IT'S OKAY
WAIT...
FOR ME...
IT WAS WRITTEN ALREADY
THE DAY OF OUR NIKAH
THE DAY OF OUR DEATH
THE DAY OF JUDGMENT

JANNAH OR JAHANAM
HERETOFORE

WE ARE MARRIED
A PROMISE WAITING TO BE CONCLUDED

THEREFORE

NO WORRIES
NO STRESS
NO ENDLESS SEARCHING...

THE OBJECT OF AFFECTION

UNKNOWN

UNSEEN

PATHS UNCROSSED

AND YET
I THINK OF YOU ALREADY AS YOU THINK OF ME
AT THE SAME MINUTE...1 AM 2 OR 3
OUR SOULS DESTINED FOR ANOTHER
OUR BODIES DESTINED FOR EACHOTHER
SAVE YOUR TOUCHES FOR ME...ONLY ME
WHY ARE YOU SO FAMILIAR.......
HE'S MET YOU SOMEWHERE
SOMEWHERE IN HIS DREAMS
NO FORCE CAN PREVENT THAT MEETING
IT WAS WRITTEN BY "HE"
NO HARM CAN TOUCH THIS LOVE UNLESS PERMITTED BY "HE"
SABR HABIBTI
SABR
RESPECT YOUR HUSBANDS RIGHTFUL PLACE

RESPECT HIM

ALTHOUGH HIS HANDS, HIS FACE EXISTS NOT YET

IN YOUR REALITY...
YOUR EYES YOUR SOUL YOUR THOUGHTS YOUR HANDS...CHASTE
SHHHHHHHHHHHHH
CLOSE YOUR EYES...
NO LONGER A NEED

NO LONGER A NEED FOR MUSIC
NO LONGER A NEED FOR DANCE
NO LONGER A NEED FOR NEED

NO LONGER A NEED FOR ADDICTION
NO LONGER A NEED TO BE...

BUT 2 MARRIED SOULS REMAIN
AT THE CORNER BOTTOMS OF A TRIANGLE
IN SUDJOOD WHERE FOREHEAD AND NOSE SURRENDERS ON
GROUND
TO THEIR RABB ABOVE "HIS" OWN PEAK
THE REAL REASON OF UNION
TO WORSHIP AND COMPLETE HALF YOUR DIN
CLOSE YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS...

REMIND ME

NEVER WAS IT BETWEEN YOU AND I

IT WAS ALWAYS BETWEEN A SLAVE AND "HE"

AND TO "HIM" WE SHOULD ONLY PLEASE

OPEN YOUR ABSTRACT CONSCIOUSNESS...

SWIM WITH HIM IN CLEAR TURQUOISE SEAS
TOUCH HIM INNOCENTLY

WITH YOUR FRAGRANT BREEZE
WAKE UP IN A ROUND BED
WITH A SMILE TO TEASE
LET'S SWIM IN DREAMS

DREAMS DREAMING TO EXIST

LET'S SWIM IN REALITY

UNTIL REALITY EXISTS

AS THE SUN RISES TO SET

AND THE SEASONS CONTINUE TO LEAVE

LET'S SWIM IN DREAMS

LIKE THIS

UNTIL...

so somebody posted this link on another thread on the forums: ibn hazm...i think. (http://www.muslimphilosophy.com/hazm/dove/chp1-3.html)
and I thought this verse was interesting, coz when you think of love, you don't really think of tears:

Fair fortitude imprisoned lies,
And tears flow freely from the eyes.

this is what the poet said about it: Among the accidents of Love may be mentioned an extreme impatience under affliction, such a paroxysm of emotion as completely overwhelms the lover and leaves him speechless, as when he sees his beloved turning from him in undisguised aversion. I have a line or two referring to this.

in laymens terms: the guy got rejected...

02-08-2007, 12:37 PM
okay, so I just read sister sirius's post about not making this an ibn hazm thread. woops.
to make up for it. heres another poem...but its about a pious wife....i realize its not all deep like the other ones, but beneficial nonetheless.

The Pious Wife

Marriage to her is one half of the deen,
The benefit Allah has put in her is yet to be seen.
She wears her hijab for her Lord, to please and obey,
She turns to Allah for salaah at least five times each day.

She prays in the night and makes sure to awake you,
And sprinkles you with water if sleep should overtake you.
She protects her chastity with firmness because she does not desire,
To displease Allah and end up in the tormenting fire.

She asks the people who know when matters need to be rectified,
She is not blinded by self righteousness and foolish pride.
She is humble and kind to her husband as Allah has commanded,
Never leaving him alone, isolated, nor stranded.

She opens her mouth only to say what is best,
Not questioning her husband when he makes a request.
She takes care of herself and never ceases to try,
To beautify herself so to please his eye.

She is a pleasure Allah has given to us in this life,
Be thankful to Allaah alone for His blessing, THE PIOUS WIFE.

Assalamu Alaikum,

here's my favourite contemporary poem


by Brother Dash

The cloak enveloped the breeze on a day made sunny by her complexion

A radiant kind of energy or perhaps synergy of mood and disposition

She possessed me Enveloped me Cradled me like an orphan babe

And then she caught my glance

I don't know why I was afraid to say that it was her essence that gave her such a presence

That sparked such a desire Not of flesh But of spirit

That longing for love She reminded me of He That blew life into She That gave birth to the We That soothes our troubled cries and I tried to avoid the eyes

But those eyes pierced the walls of my soul

She grabbed and immobilized me Gently choked my jugular and peered deeply

"Oh my is that the universe I see in the iris of her soul?"

You see it was the essence of her presence that reminded me of love

It was the flow of her gait

It was the way that she walked

It was the way that she talked

Though her lips never parted

She was purifying water

I soooooooo wanted to pray

Prostrate to her God That created That stated Paradise was at her feet

I was captive to her beauty

And I don't mean she was pretty

Convinced of my own conviction

She questioned my existence

And my ego ran for cover

Was it the Sun that warmed the wind that kissed my cheeks

Or was it the breadth of her aura A majestic, feminine kind of Je ne sais quoi

My soul quaked Or perhaps it ached

Language is an inadequate conveyor

She never said a word

Her existence spoke volumes

And this moment demanded a reply

I was bursting to ask the question

Struggling, bumbling, fumbling for the appropriate time

Hyperventalaic starts and stops to the question

Fear and anticipation gripping my emotion and my right index finger

And in the midst of this comical spasm

This flotsam, jetsam to and fro

She must have heard the words yell from my soul

And with the softness of a whisper and almost sweet serenade

She said to me simply…Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

"I'm just a Muslimah"

Every moment misery,
Every breath a century,
Torturous each second be,
Mind made numb from agony.
Caged emotions cannot free,
Pining for you next to me.


Gone are days of revelry,
When this heart was once carefree,
Now my heart beats heavily,
Chained in lovesick malady.
Longing soul calls out for thee,
Yet my lips must silent be.

mAsha Allah. props to all the poets out there.

I was thinkin, does this thread only have to be about love for a spouse or whatever. Could we include love for the mother, father, siblings, etc(any family relative)? i mean, Love Notes is not solely about marriage but also about family? true, tis not?

Sirius1
02-10-2007, 12:43 PM
Shaykh Yaser, at the beginning of class, had mentioned that Love can be talked about from different aspects, but Love Notes--the class--primarily dealt with love between members of the opposite gender--or spousal love--(if they end up getting married).

If you are talking about the title of the course-- Love Notes: Marriage and Family Life, I think its referring to how a man and a woman come together to make a family. In class, the emphasis was more on the phenomenon of Love, scholarly views on the concept, and the Prophet's (romantic) relationship with his wives.

I think the love for family members more belongs in the Rules of Engagement folder. We learned a lot about family/relatives in that class.

The Pious Husband

Marriage to him is one half of the deen,
To please Allah (swt) is more than a dream.

He wears his beard for his Lord, to please and obey,
He turns to Allah (swt) for Salah at least five times a day.

He prays in the night and makes sure to wake you,
And strives during daylight to provide and protect you.

He lowers his gaze with firmness because he does not desire,
To displease Allah (swt) and face His just ire,

He asks advice from the ummah, and his wife too,
Before making decisions that he might later rue.

To his wife he is humble and always most kind,
Sharing his burdens with strength and clear mind.

He opens his mouth only to say what is best,
Weighing all options ‘fore denying a request.

He takes care of himself and family too
Knowing that Allah (swt) will see them through.

He is a pleasure from Allah (swt) above
Be thankful to Allah (swt) and His blessings through love.

I do not remember if it was Ramdan or a regular halaqa by Sh Waleed Bissyoni in his musalla, anyway, he told a story of a brother. He was masha'Allah decent muslim, and one day he was at university campus (sheikh did not mention where), and it started to rain cats and dogs (seems houston). So the brother saw a non-muslim girl worrying to reach car, and she did not have umbrella, so he told her, take my umbrella, I would be here all day, and most probably the rain would stop by then. So she thanked him, and took it and left. But she was really impressed by his manners, then next day or subsequent days, she started finding that brother, to return umbrella as well. It turned out more than returning it, as she ultimately accepted islam and eventually married that brother. Sheikh Waleed then joked, "since then, many muslim brothers started carrying extra umbrella" .

So hopefully, many brothers would try to emulate sahaba now insha'Allah.

*Allahu Akbar*

The 3rd one is the hardest to achieve...the first two require a good tailor(if ur short) and throwing your razor away.

Here is a poem that I would like to share but of course I shouldnt reveal the name of the poet without his permission http://forums.almaghrib.org/images/icons/icon12.gif

My Love:

My heart blinds me of the realities of tomorrow
I’m trapped between my thoughts of you and I feel no sorrow
Can a love like this grow even stronger

If you were attacked I would defend you with my honor
I will be your protector and He is my supporter

Fear is but a thought that has been transformed into a feeling
I grab it my the throat and jump head first into any commotion
I will remain committed to you and forever fulfill my devotion

Now time is of essence so I worry about the events of tomorrow
Will we be kept apart forever, if not, than how much longer

If I had one wish in Junnah, I would ask for you
And if I could intercede, I would speak on your behalf
I invite you to good and you invite me to that which is better
So let’s hasten to do good together
Perhaps we will be granted mansions the size of the heavens and earth put together

Now history is but events that follow one another
My love could be compared to the love spoken of by the Great Scholar,
He spoke in great detail of this energetic feeling
His love was directed towards a lady, whereas my love is for my father
He was overtaken by pain and sorrow
But I feel like Ive gained and I look forward to the days of tomorrow

and Allah knows best

Very enlightening, jazakallah for sharing. Is this poem about a son's love for his father.

Dear My wife (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B113HwA6vzY&mode=related&search=)

alot of these nasheeds count as poems too. :)

lyrics-not translated by me, found on youtube.com

TRANSLATION- Zawjati (My wife)
(as given in the album Da'ani)
I love you the way you are,
I love you the way you were,
No matter what did or will happen,
You are and will be my darling.

You're my rightful wife, I care not about
Those who like to reproach and irritate me.
It is our destiny to be
Together eternally.

In my heart you instilled love
With grace and good deeds.
Happiness vanishes when you disappear,
Life brightens when you're there.

Hard is my day
Until you return home.
Sadness disappears
When you smile.

Life turns black
When you're upset,
So I work hard
To make your wish come true.

You're my happiness.
May you be happy forever.
Our souls are united
Like soil and plants.

You're my hope, my peace
My good company and inspiration.
Life is good, no matter how hard it is,
When you're fine.

As-salaamu 'alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh,

As I type this, I'm listening to one of my favourite anasheed afraah (wedding anasheed) - part of the "Tahaaninaa" album, this particular nasheed is named "Al3Ors alHaniyyah." Does anyone know the translation of it? I can understand a few phrases here and there, but a full translation would be cool :D
