    Last Chance got a reaction from Ashvazdanghe in God's Work of Art   
    A ferocious warrior, a soft spoken sage, No other man could be both in any era or age, A servant so humble, an emperor so great, Never has a man possessed both traits so innate,
    The father of orphans, the prince of a nation,
    Two faces in this world which have no relation,
    And yet, my Master, you were all of these things,
    Everything and more, your virtues gushing like springs,
    A man has only one heart, so how were you, you?
    How are you everything, how can you be true?
    I sat at the gate of my heart just as you sat at yours,
    And He showed me how all this in your heart flows.

    For if a man sits as watchful as you of his heart,
    And no iota of doubt can take it apart,
    Then that man is not certain, but certainty itself,
    And if he defeats the whole of disbelief alone,
    Then that man is not faithful, but the very faith itself,
    And if you lifted the gate which forty men couldn't,
    Then you are not strong but rather strength itself,
    And if you demonstrate the impossible,
    Then surely you are the hand of God Himself,
    And I have no words to describe your words,
    Suffice to say you are the word of God itself.

    An eternity could pass yet your mystery will always be,
    You are the blinding light that allows us to see,
    The deafening truth that allows us to hear,
    The saint whom we call in any worry or fear,
    No words can describe you and no mind can perceive,
    Your justice no judge or wise man can achieve,
    And your lineage...where can I even begin?
    Divinity and godliness and cures are found therein,
    And why not, when their mother is their mother,
    The radiant soul, and there will never be another,
    And your light is the light of God's most adored,
    The messenger you guarded with your life and your sword,

    You are Ali- elevated in every way,
    Second to none but one, no matter what they say,
    The spark that ignites every beat of my heart,
    The beauty of both worlds- God's own work of art,
    The victor in battle and of the hearts of the pure,
    Your allegiance is the promise of a future secure,
    Your name is my cure in affliction and pain,
    And I will call out to you again and again,
    Let them mock and deny and say what they please,
    I'll smile as you rescue me from hardship to ease.

    Tonight and always, my heart overflows,
    Your love is infinite and within me it grows,
    The more I know you, the less I can contain,
    Abu Thar was in love- he wasn't insane,
    A badge of honour and a mark of pride,
    He couldn't conceal it even if he tried,
    You are the wealth which can't be taken away,
    And so we will praise you all night and all day,
    Judgement will come and still we won't finish,
    Your virtue and glory will never diminish.

    So I ask one last time, how are you, you?
    A sage and a lion, how can both be true?
    How can these virtues fit in one heart?
    And I have only one answer- you are God's work of art.

    This is a good point.
    @786:) I think you would do well to take note of this. I have shared my views on this thread and also emphasized that we should differentiate between what is a sunnah and what isn't. We probably all agree on this point.
    Where I think you lose credibility is with statements such as 'I would walk between najaf and karbala to lose calories'.
    Without wanting to sound rude, this is where you display your ignorance of the narrations on the topic of the ziyarah of Imam Hussain (عليه السلام). 
    I can understand why some of the brothers don't take you seriously after that and probably assume you're just trolling.

    Agree with above ^
    Additionally, education for young children should necessarily be less structured and more fun. Young children learn best through play. 
    If you visit a school and see rows of desks and strict teachers, this is not suitable for the development of toddlers, don't enroll your child there.

    Last Chance got a reaction from Moalfas in Parenting a Newborn   
    I was wondering if anybody had any good recommendations for books/lectures/resources regarding parenting, but for newborns in particular. Many of the books I have come across cover parenting for slightly older children or toddlers but I have struggled to find much for the beginning stages for first time parents. The resources can be from Muslims or non-Muslims, although I would prefer an Islamic theme. Any other tips or advice are most welcome too.
    Thank you.

    My master, my saviour, O' custodian of my soul,
    I write these words for you in hope of becoming whole,
    For what is my purpose if from you I'm apart?
    How do I live on if you don't dwell in my heart?
    A fish without water or a bird without wings,
    Without you I am worse off than all of these things,
    So tonight when destinies are tied and futures aligned,
    When each fate is written and missions assigned,
    I come to you begging with only one wish,
    My heart full of guilt but my eyes in anguish...
     
    I ask for a promise though I have no right,
    But the flame of my hope shines so blindingly bright,
    I ask that my soul remains always for you,
    That I remain in your service whatever I do,
    That you are my guardian and no other king,
    No other person no matter what luring they bring,
    Though I am not worthy, I know only one truth,
    That I want to give you my end and my youth,
    You are my beginning and you are my end,
    This soul that I've shattered only your hands can mend.
     
    Will you deny me on a night of such hope?
    Would you forget me when I've held onto your rope?
    No...how would you, when you've shown me such mercy?
    When you've fed me the drink of your love when I'm thirsty,
    You've responded to words still unescaped from my heart,
    Granted the prayers that I've had yet to impart,
    You've saved me from disasters to me unbeknown,
    You shoulder my sorrows though I've left you alone,
    No other such mercy exists in this world,
    For it is attained from just one household,
    Lanterns that guide and arks of salvation,
    A household of honour and saintly prostration...
     
    So I ask by your honour and by that of the other eleven,
    By the majesty of the kings of the youths of His heaven,
    By the modesty and grace of the treasure of Haidar,
    And the might of the lion who lifted the gate of Khaybar,
    And by the beauty of him for whom words I can't find,
    The praised one whose brilliance could turn my eyes blind...
    Accept me, my servitude and make me your own,
    Allow me to repay a fraction of the mercy you've shown,
    Let my eyes not shed tears except for your pain,
    And if I lose everything, let your love remain,
    If ever I'm deserted then stretch out your hand,
    Be my place of belonging if I belong to no land,
    If I lose all guidance and and in darkness I wander,
    To my calls of help always be the responder,
    Be my shelter if my home is taken away,
    The stars of the night sky and the sun in the day...
     
    May my health and my wealth and my life be for you,
    Take all that I have, I'll start afresh and anew,
    For in this world and the next, I have only one goal,
    That you are forever the custodian of my soul.
