What have we become?

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


My Lord..
What has the world become..?
With all the wars, the battles
and the fights…
Has it been a better place to live?
Or has it been worse?

My Lord..

What have we become..?
With all the misunderstandings,
the tears and the sufferings…
Have we become better servants of Yours..
Or have we been misled?

My Lord,

What have I become..?
By only watching, feeling, crying and praying
for all of these from afar..?
Am I rewarded for my sympathy..?
Or have I become a sinner..
for the gratitude of my safety..?

For Allah is near

Life depends upon perspective

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.



"Life depends upon perspective. 
Unpleasant perspective bares unpleasant life. 
Pleasing perspective bares pleasing life"

"Do you feel something in your heart?"

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.




Spring, summer, autumn and winter,
Sunshine, snow, rain and drought,
Heaven, Earth, wind and waters,
Mortals, immortals, life and death,


War, peace, ideals and common sense,
Reality, fairy-tales, rationals and dreams,
Love, hate, adore and detest,
Sorrow, delighted, laughter and sad,


In the midst of all these,
Amid the time that’s running,
I hope you could come, come to me
And whisper the answer to my query;
"Do you feel something in your heart 
like what I feel in mine…?”

-F.S, 2011-

Probably not so random

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.





Flowers bloom, flowers die,
Fruits are picked when they are ripe,
Some people stay, but some had to leave,
Good things could be more than just memories,

Time, is something that we can't freeze,
Yet through time, we might get what we wish,

Hence..
Please come and save me,
Please come while I still have the time,
Please come while you still have the chance,
Please come while you still can,
Please.."

In between

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.




I am..
in between yes and no
in between is and is not
in between questions and answers
in between believe and doubt
in between asleep and awake
in between imagination and reality
in between contented and melancholy
in between smiles and cries
in between receiving and letting go
in between giving up and holding on
in between being crushed and being inspirited
I am..
somewhere in the middle.
And I am empty. 
I don’t know what to think, what to feel, what to be.
I don’t know what to think, what to feel, what to be.
Please tell me..
What should I think about, what should I feel, who should I be.
F.S - 2011

On Husnu Dzan

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ 
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

  On Husnu Dzan

At times, I feel like I’m being taken advantage of.
I feel like I’m being used.
Are these just my stupid feelings influenced by the devils?
Or are these the reality, are these the truth?
So now, should I throw a few tantrums?
Or should I ignore this sudden blues?
Oh well, “Sabar Farah, just keep on believing that
in everybody, there are good traits and values.
And to everybody,
you should just continue being sincere and doing good”.


[F.S: 6.6.2011]
