A watered path

I know two paths that I can take
One is narrow, long and straight
The other is fast and crooked with bumps
Which one should I take?

One will take me across in seconds
Where more disaster waits
The other will take me to a holy and beautiful place
But this path will take me a lifetime to cross
Which one should I take?

One will take me no where in life
Though I may enjoy the ride
The other will cause me great pain and great strife
But will bring me
Great joy in the end
Which one should I take?

On one path is teachings of Quran and Sunnah
On the other lays the lies of the dunya
Which path should I take?

On one path I see scholars crying in remembrance of their Lord
On the other path I see thieves crying
Over a lost grain of salt
Which path should I take?

Oh sweet taste of jennah
Be like my tea
Both calm and comforting to me
Oh my Lord do not forget me
When I am weak and forget thee
Oh my Lord send down angels to be
guardians on to me

Oh my Lord open my eyes
When I am so blind that I can't see
The path that is so obvious for me
Grab me like Gabriel did Ahmed and show me to read

For when the human heart feels the truth
His eyes over flow
With wells of water

And maybe we'll cry so much
That our tears will become like rivers
And make our journey smooth
and easy
Guidelines
"Good deeds are not equal to the evil ones. Repel other's evil deeds with your good deeds. You will see that he with whom you had enmity, will become your close friend.
But none will attain this quality except those who patiently endure and none will attain this quality except those who are truly fortunate."

Nuriddeenk,
You are right in saying:
"All truth and kind words come from Allah Insha Allah we will never forget that."

Rabbana Taqabbal Minna Innaka Antas-Samee-ul-Aleem.

Ameen.

Iban Hanif,

Beautiful Beautiful Poem, I enjoyed it very much.

Thank you for visiting my site and commenting yet again. It was amazing to me that you have never seen snow. Then I realized who am I to be amazed by such a fact...I have never seen the ocean for instance.

Thank you for the site you linked to me...it was a very intriguing site.

Be blessed and have a great weekend.
