Poem: Turning Back to Allah

Wild flowers and fjord in the distance

Turning Back to Allah

You've Recognised your sin/mistake,

So now Turn Back to Him (swt),

Ready to Sacrifice and Leave that which,

Distanced you from your Lord(swt),

Trusting that He(swt) Knows Better.

Allah Promises and Loves to Forgive,

He(swt) says: "Don't Despair",

He(swt) is At-Tawaab:

"The Acceptor of Repentance, The Oft Returning",

And His(swt) Mercy overcomes His(swt) Anger

So Turn Back Now, don't wait for later,

Before the Death Rattle reaches the Throat,

Before the Sun Rises from the West.


Turn Back to your Lord,

By Repenting (Tawbah/Istigfaar),

With Willingness,

With Sincerity (Ikhlaas),

Feeling Remorse,

and Regret,

Intending Never again to Return to that sin,

With Belief (Emaan) in your Heart.


Keep it Flowing,

Staying Steadfast (Istikhaamah),

By Purifying and Cleansing,

And keeping Good Company,

Harbouring Good Thoughts,

Speaking Good Words,

by Doing Good Deeds (Al-Birr),

and Allah will make your Journey Easier.


Make your Heart your Forte,

And Allah will Change the rest.

Delete Old Memories, Painful ones too,

Retaining Lessons Learned.

Your Pleas have not gone unheard,

And your Tears are Not Lost,

Becoming Peals of Wisdom,

So Move Forward Wisely Oh Muslim,

With Confidence, Humility and Dignity;

And Be the Best you can,

Your Slate is Clean,

Its Simple and Clear,

Just Turn Back to Allah, Right Now and Right Here.

    • Aisha, please log in and write your question as a separate post, and we'll try to answer it quickly Insha'Allah. And please do not post this same comment on many posts on this website, it's not helpful. My short answer to you is to accept responsibility for whatever you did. Tell your parents you are sorry, and that it won't happen again. I'm sure they will not stop you from going to school. And yes of course you should make dua' to Allah to help you and make the situation easy for you.

      • Brother Wael, I submitted 2 questions and they have not been answered and they are still pending... I'm not sure if I submitted them correctly? I know this is a question but I'm afraid if I submit this as a separate post then it will be lost too 😀
        Is it normal for it to say "Pending" for a while?

    • Nrh,

      Did you remember to do the sum just underneath where you write your email address? If so, you should have received an email. Check your 'junk box'. The password may have gone there. If not, let us know and we'll look into it insha'Allah.

  17. Asalamualaikum,

  18. Marsallah I love this poem. Thank you .

  19. i have done many stupid things in my life but i also done good things but i don't know they are good or not i can't remember my good deeds only i remember that i am nothing more than a humanless soul i don't talk to much because i always remain tense i am good in studies i am good in sports i am fine good looking guy but still people hate me cuz they say i don't have a good heart and may they are right cuz i don't talk dirty i don't go out with my family or with my friends
    Crazy thing is i don't even pray to allah for my sins but sometime i cry to allah alone that remove the tension from my heart i don't know i always remain tense and only thing come from my mind is hatred of this world every time i look in the mirror and say to my self that i'm a good person i want to help people but still i don't want to be a hero

    • Ammar,

      Sometimes things seem worse than they actually are, so perhaps Allah(swt) brought you to this website to help you see things in a more positive light. So if you wish to, log in and submit your question as a separate post and we will try to help you there insha'Allah.
