Group poem 5: Unite for the sake of AS-SALÂM

Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "The believers in their mutual kindness, compassion and sympathy are just like one body. When one of the limbs suffers, the whole body responds to it with wakefulness and fever". [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

It's true; our father came from many different lands
Molded to perfection within His loving Hands
The uniqueness of the earth from many different places
Seeing nothing but myself in many different faces
In earnestness we seek peace in this our time
We pray, and we cry to end this awful crime
Our origins are one, and yet we stand divided
The pain within our souls, no longer can we hide it
Our beloved taught to spread words of peace amongst us
Giving gifts of our compassion for a world that is just
United hand in hand; no dispute of yours or mine
Returning to His land, and a love which is divine
Sa'eed Purcell

In our darkest moments when we look towards things what we see that gives us strength and peace of mind is our beautiful diin (religion).
It is what unites us – protects us and what Allah has given as a blessings to US!
Islam is Allah’s words and mercy upon us and the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam was sent to convey it’s that simple yet somehow our sanctity of brotherhood in Islam seems betrayed. Like the setting sun shining its last dying rays on a clear lake thus shimmering the mirror waters we too must reflect on our deeds.

I am a Muslim thus pledging to have the best interest of all Muslims at heart. To obey my elders and to show mercy to the young to hold women in the highest of honours and men the highest of respect both genders equal in the eyes of ALLAH both honour and respect equal in benevolence.

and so my brothers in Islam let us seek the unity that we so desperately need, being so united that we send the same message to the world through words ,actions, and peaceful intentions, the message....LA ILAAHA ILLALAAH!
Mohamed Jamal Mohamed (SIRAT)

Ya Allah increase our imaan so we might set our differences aside and united!
Our ummah has been disunited for too long now!
And, in times where unity is crucial – we sought the path of dividing ourselves
Hating ourselves,
And torture ourselves.
Ya Allah increase our imaan so we may become follow the footsteps of early Muslims…
Ya Allah guide us for truly you are Al-Hadi!
Ya Allah help us to see the truth for you are Al-Haqq!
Ya Allah unite my Muslim brothers and sisters everywhere!
For truly we have become so heartless, and blind to the suffering of our own people!
Let us stop being the obstacle and problem for one another
And unite for the Sake of Allah Ta’aal
Let us repent for our heartlessness…For Islam teaches one to love for others what they love for themselves!
Oh my fellow Muslims let us kindly unite and take the historical path of unity!
For the Rasullah sallahahu alayhi wassallam said "The relationship of the believer with another believer is like (the bricks of) a building, each strengthens the other.” [Bukhair and Muslim]
Let us unite, ya Muslims!
