She was young, at the peak of her youthfulness
She was beautiful, like she flawlessly sculptured herself
She was elegant, tall, slim, fair, regal and graceful
She was sexy, hot, flairy, generous with a killer smile
She was attractive to men, and women too she claimed
She was sexuality unequalled, even animals heat up on her
She was friendly, none was in doubt about her charms
She was popular, only a few knew her not in the area
She was devoted in her worship, all bore her witness, but
She was a lesbian and very very proud of it...SCREEEEEEEECHHHH!
|Woman2Woman: Doing their thing, against all logic.|
One day a brother of hers, living in the same house with her and their other family members approached her and said "You are indeed one of the most beautiful creations of Allaah, that I have seen. With no equal among the girls, ladies or women of this city. You are also always up at the first call of prayer every morning, pray fajr and engage your tasbihi much till the day breaks. I bear you witness to that. You are also kind and generous, with many admirers and many more suitors falling all over themselves eager to celebrate you as their wife. So what in Allaah's Name is wrong with you, that you can not choose one of them and perfect your life, your religion? Why in Allaah's name do you do what you do with women. How can this be happening and yet you are so so prompt with your salat? Nothing bothers me more about than this. Why not please repent to Allaah and stop this sexual interactions with fellow women?"
She calmly replied him, that he should stop worrying himself about her. Afterall what is she doing? There are worst atrocities being committed right that moment by many men and even women and are hiding it. Well she is not a hypocrite and that's why she lets whoever care to know what she is. She will stop it when the time comes, there's plenty of life ahead of her and when she grows older, she will seek forgiveness of Allaah, marry a man of her choice and settle down. But until then, she is good.
As Allaah SWT Would have it, 3 days later, just 3 days, she became ill. It was so sudden and so serious many were confused as to what might be the possible cause of the sickness. She was so ravged by the mysterious illness, she lost all sense of her surrounding. She was subsequently taken to a private hospital, without her being aware of herself. Within 7 days, the whole thing she held most dear to her and which made her what she was, withered away like the twinkle of an eye. Helpless with the case, she was discharged from the specialist hospital on a referral to be taken abroad. Though she had regained her being, but by then she has lost her senses of sight and hearing!
She could neither see, nor could she hear a single word. Deaf, dumb and blind she became.
Her family were informed of a traditional medicine man in one village and without wasting time, they prepared her for the journey and took her there. Within 3 days of her arrival there, she died. It was so shocking to all who knew her and the steps she has left in the sands of time were talked about and many were left with the unanswered question, "Whatever happened to her, so suddenly?" Nobody knew for sure but her brother, who approached her just a day or 2 prior to her falling sick, was left with so many unanswered questions.
Was he the last chance she was given to save her soul? Why did she think she had a lot more time ahead of her? Did she get a divine promise of long life? What ever happened to her in so short a period? Could it be witchcraft as some were speculating? Or possibly she might have hurt someone unjustly, and nemesis caught up on her? What becomes of her now that she died, clearly she use to perform her salats regularly? Could it be so, as some said the drastic breakdown of her beauty within such a short period of time and the devastating sickness may have atone for her sins? "O Allaah, Do have Mercy!" he finally gave up pondering.
As I reflect over the sad story, a similar parable from the Holy Quran refreshes in my mind. It gave me solace to realize Allaah SWT Has indeed Guided us, it is we, men that are ignorant or neglectful of HIS Guidance?
In Surah al-Kahf i.e. Q18 verses 32 - 47, Allaah SWT Says:
Q18:32 "Set forth to them the parable of two men: for one of them We provided two gardens of grape-vines and surrounded them with date palms; in between the two We placed corn-fields.
Each of those gardens brought forth its produce, and failed not in the least therein: in the midst of them We caused a river to flow.
(Abundant) was the produce this man had : he said to his companion, in the course of a mutual argument: "more wealth have I than you, and more honour and power in (my following of) men."
He went into his garden in a state (of mind) unjust to his soul: He said, "I deem not that this will ever perish,
"Nor do I deem that the Hour (of Judgment) will (ever) come: Even if I am brought back to my Lord, I shall surely find (there) something better in exchange."
His companion said to him, in the course of the argument with him: "Dost thou deny Him Who created thee out of dust, then out of a sperm-drop, then fashioned thee into a man?
"But (I think) for my part that He is Allah, My Lord, and none shall I associate with my Lord.
"Why didst thou not, as thou wentest into thy garden, say: 'Allah's will (be done)! There is no power but with Allah!' If thou dost see me less than thee in wealth and sons,
"It may be that my Lord will give me something better than thy garden, and that He will send on thy garden thunderbolts (by way of reckoning) from heaven, making it (but) slippery sand!-
"Or the water of the garden will run off underground so that thou wilt never be able to find it."
So his fruits (and enjoyment) were encompassed (with ruin), and he remained twisting and turning his hands over what he had spent on his property, which had (now) tumbled to pieces to its very foundations, and he could only say, "Woe is me! Would I had never ascribed partners to my Lord and Cherisher!"
Nor had he numbers to help him against Allah, nor was he able to deliver himself.
There, the (only) protection comes from Allah, the True One. He is the Best to reward, and the Best to give success.
Set forth to them the similitude of the life of this world: It is like the rain which we send down from the skies: the earth's vegetation absorbs it, but soon it becomes dry stubble, which the winds do scatter: it is (only) Allah who prevails over all things.
Wealth and sons are allurements of the life of this world: But the things that endure, good deeds, are best in the sight of thy Lord, as rewards, and best as (the foundation for) hopes" Q18:47
***Is there any more doubt as to the Mercy and Compassion of ALLAAH AWJ upon HIS Creations? May Allaah ArRahman Save us from pursuing our heart's desires... Amin thumma amin!
