This is for all those reverts, you have been a source of inspiration to me, especially the ones I’ve “met” through blogging. It’s great having you guys around, knowing that people strive and succeed. I hope Allah keeps you going, and helps others to find the way.
The darkness seems to creep around,
Tiptoeing inside without a sound,
Slightly panicking and confused,
Seemingly being reused,
Nothing seems to happen for a reason,
Thinking differently is treason,
But it happens, and a path is discerned,
An illumination, a fire is burned,
Someone holds your hand as you start to think,
And you’ve come to Allah in a single blink!
You converts, I’m glad you’ve converted,
Your struggles are not but appreciated,
Where you’re true, the seed of Iman firmly planted,
Time and time again, I’ve taken Islam for granted,
Straying, where you would stand strong,
Although our journeys are both equally long,
For me, looking at you is inspiration,
To follow the Deen with such elation!
When I go weak, I know now to fight,
When it gets too hard, to hold on tight,
There isn’t much difference, though, between you and I,
Why suffer on land when we were born to fly!
