Looking in the Mirror,
A reflection of yourself.
You see what you see,
But not everyone else.
Make up can hide things,
Clothes cover up things.
You think you hide.
The Almighty knows you,
You need to know you too.
Your character displays,
Your attitude portrays.
Your manners project,
Learn to respect.
Looking in a mirror
To see the reflection of yourself,
You see what you see,
And hope no one else.
Amazing you are,
Inside and out.
Integrate that reflection
And your manners with perfection,
Others will learn,
Who and what you’re all about.
My perception of getting to College Graduation is an achievement of a lifetime.
I’m happy for the achievement and the Blessing is mine.
It’s like the step into a new world of challenges.
A raising of an Anchor on a journey with balances.
An obstacle just jumped over and relieved that one made it.
It’s a wonderful Achievement, Own it, just paid it.
The price to have A seat at the table with others who worked so hard to accomplish the same goal.
The pass to greatness and an opportunity to make a difference, a boost to the soul.
One can now face the world and inspire others to learn, and create.
You can embark on things and become Great!
Great ideas to seek and unfold.
Making history that’s yet to be told.
College graduation is like one of the best events in ones life that is a memory and history and part of ones foundation of their legacy.
You can start a Dynasty and be the greatest anyone could ever be.
Representing the scholars who blessed you with the knowledge they obtained.
You will have a seat like an King or Queen and a position sustained.
Its empowering as well as rewarding when you finally increase your knowledge and raise yourself to another level in life.
You were persistent, you were courageous, you have been faithful, you are smart and sharp as a knife.
You are on fire for hire, and that heavy heart is now weightless,
You can now blaze through your next goal and feel that feeling of….

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!
