Try Your Best

When you know you are trying your best,
When to please your Maker you never rest.

Then excuse those who do not see the light,
In what you stand for and constantly fight.

Those who unjustly try to serve a punch,
The Almighty Alone protects from that bunch.

Those who say a lot but know you not,
Should be ashamed of what they’ve now got.

Waste not your time straightening their line,
Rather draw a perfect one & you’ll be fine.

But correct yourself if they are indeed right,
For that is righteousness in His Sight!


Mufti Ismail Menk

    JAzak Allahu khairan for the nice post…
    I was feeling so down because of my own weaknesses and feeling belittled…And I needed a lift, a spiritual boost…Though I know that Allah is my Wali, still it (post) helped me wipe a tear…
