Tijjani Muhammad Musa's photo.…by Poetic Tee “Here, take a sip”

Just coming back from Juma’at prayer
Hot, scotching heat, layer upon layer.

Someone asked where I stood to pray
As one of the congregational, I say'.

Inside, outside or away from the masjid?
Within it, for I am what I am, indeed.

A Muslim who believes, trusting in Allah
Is forever contented, in a state of sallah.

Most of us did not grow up, it seems
Knowing who we truly are, as Muslims.

Each, a fearless one in his heart
Full of knowledge, from the start.

If you see a Muslim, running away
Stain not his faith, nor put it in disarray.

Except it’s a war, so strategic or tactics
Count him not among the theatrics.

Again check his faith closely, it’s weak
Who so ever lets his fears speak.

For the heart strives, always to be one
With whom it loves, ask the swan.

Any who truly loves Allah and His Rasool
Will find peace in His Remembrance, a tool.
