The Child of Salaam

Recommended Posts

سبحان الله

Salam Alaikum, oh brothers and sisters around the globe!

Jazak Allah Khair.



As-Salam Alaykum, oh people in faith,

Today I have a story for you to never go astray,

Oh Allah bestow Mercy on the Child of Salaam,


There was a child who loved his Creator,

And to an extent to love death more than life,

The child said, "Peace be upon you (As-salam alaykum) to you who I worship, Do you hear my voice?"

The worshipped said, "I am here, to judge you and to hear you"


The child got beaten in the street,

Was there any hope for him?

An angel descended upon them,

And the angel scared the beaters away,

The child said, "Peace be upon you (As-salamu alaykum) to you who I admire, Do you hear my voice?"

The admired said, "I am here, to heal you and to hear you"


The child was reading the Qur'an,

And he did not understand a verse,

The child said, "Peace be upon you (As-salam alaykum) to you who I read, Do you hear my voice?"

The read said, "I am here, to learn you and to hear you"


The child was ill,

He hoped to die,

To meet his Lord,

And the Lord did not end him,

The child said, "Peace be upon you (As-salam alaykum) to you who I wished, Do you hear my voice?"

The wished said, "I am here, to test you and to hear you"


The child was teaching his people,

And he forgot what he wanted to say,

The child said, "Peace be upon you (As-salam alaykum) to you who I remember, Do you hear my voice?"

The remembered said, "I am here, to follow you and to hear you"


Years passed,

The child became weak,

The child was tired,

The child wanted an end,

And the Lord ended him,

Before the demise of him,

The child said,

"Peace be upon you (As-salam alaykum) oh Lord of the Heavens,

I am the one who is firm for You,

There is no other than You,

And I received the message from You,

Peace be upon you (As-salam alaykum) oh Lord of the Souls,

For you my prayers pointed at You,

No one could be as mighty as You,

Hasten my death as soon as I meet to You,

Oh One who I worship,

Is there any friend I have besides You?

Oh One who I submit,

Is there any judge I have besides You?

Oh Lord who heared me in the past,

I am the one who sent prayers to you,

Build a house to protect for me,

For I build a house to worship for You,

Peace be upon you (As-salam alaykum) oh friend,

I am the defeated and you the victor,

End me to strengthen my prayers to You."

Loves both the murderer and the murdered. Loves both the Traitor and the Country Loves both the Truth and the falsehood Either this Human is confused or a Hypocrite.  
    • Thank you, Dear. I am praying for you to find a friend. If you go to the nearest Shia Center where you live I'm sure you can find someone to talk to. Have you been friendly to a classmate?
    • (2:94) Say to them, "If the abode of the Hereafter with Allah is exclusively reserved for you and not for the rest of mankind, then you should long for death, if you arc sincere in your claim."   If you are sincere then there's no problem in killing you Shia. Embrace the hereafter.
    • Thank you for understanding @Hameedeh I’m planning on doing that. I’d never imagine myself reporting my dad anyway. Helplines have also suggested that but I won’t ever do that
    • Hello brothers and sisters. I feel like I am in dire need of help. My hatred and the feeling of jealously towards my relatives and slowly now, towards others are increasing. I have lived a lonely difficult life, where I wasn't allowed to communicate with others much. Wasn't allowed to go out much. Basically say at home alone most of the time. I watch my cousins get everything they want. I'm not jealous over this but, the fact they travel a lot. Something I've never done. I wish to go to hajj and I wish to go to Iraq especially, so I can meet my grandfather. My grandmother passed away, so I never had a chance to meet her. I had a chance to go to Iraq this year, excited to meet my grandfather. I was meant to go with my relatives, but they had secretly planned everything, excluding me out. Which made me sad, as I know they are not fans of Iraq, where as I love the beauty and the history of Iraq. Even though I've never been, I know in my heart that its a unique place. My one chance is gone, I'm afraid I've lost my chance to meet my grandfather as I heard he is sick. I can't go unless for another five years. Which breaks my heart, and now I have tried to push away these negative feelings I've had for them. But now its just, worse. I can't help but think bad thoughts. I just don't want my heart to turn dark, as I've retreated myself from communication towards others and stopped caring for everyone as I'm continuously being betrayed occasionally. I don't really have anyone a around me to teach me or help me Islamically. I'm trying hard to be patient and humble and forgiving and kind. I'm losing that side of me. But I'm so alone. I'm reading the Quran and hadith's, but I'm not sure as to what I should be reading. There are other things before that triggered all of this, but I'll end up writing a book on here. I would appreciate anything. Please and thank you.
