Peace and Blessings oh mankind,
May this piece of my deliverance kindly find,
You…..in a state of good health and high regard.
I’m going to inform you of some information I hope is not too hard.
Something is truly wrong with our world and the condition of it.
There’s so much negativity and hatred,
We’re drowning in it.
We’re trying to practice patience, like keeping our heads above water,
This dunah seems to have hold of either a son or a daughter.
An Uncle or Aunt, cousin, sister or brother, father or mother,
Some how some way, from this Deen, they tend to stray.
Not just in our faith in other faiths too.
I’m just here addressing it to you.
Children are not respecting their elders, and not obeying their parents or guardians in charge with authority.
They want to do what they want to do, and just ignore the priority.
The message and theme of this ICNA convention 2019,
Has captured the condition for a solution to a problem of our human race.
Just look at the sicknessess we all have to face.
Look at our condition, we are so close to insanity.
Ego’s left to right, caught up in vanity,
We as a people can help heal humanity.
It’s true and at the same time sad and serious,
If people are not lost in their minds, they’re out of their minds and delirious.
No matter what we do or try to implement in our community,
We cannot fail on some of the tasks because of disunity.
Some of us not all of us have the energy and motivation. If we could all unite you’d see one heck of a Nation.
No matter the religion we all stand on common ground.
We all share the same Creator, and He’s still around.
He has not left us without guidance and He’s in control of everything.
We’ve allowed ourselves to forget and lose grip of one most important thing.
With RESPECT comes kindness,
With kindness comes love,
With love you have all of the above.
So people lets start respecting one another, give peace and Blessings to every sister and brother,
When you meet,
When in passing in the street
Shake hands more often,
Let the sins fall off
Stop exposing eachother faults,
Cover them like you should cover your cough.
Help one another take care of your neighbor,
If you see your sister falling off her Deen,
Don’t let her fall
If your brother has lost his way and doing so much sin,
Don’t turn your back also save him.
Teach eachother even if it’s one ayat from Qur’an,
You don’t need to be a scholar to know what’s going on.
Open your eyes to the signs Allah placed in front of you.
Fear Allah to which you demand your mutual rights,
Allah words are true.
I pray our ummah wakes up from the deep sleep,
Which shaytan prays you stay and keeps you in it deep.
Don’t ignore the commands of Allah,
Or the Mercy that Allah has on you and me.
I’m Grateful to be here for the opportunity to address this community,
Let’s drop the vanity,
Recognize the insanity,
And come together and start HEALING HUMANITY!
