THE MISTAKE OF OUR DEAR FATHERS

THE MISTAKE OF OUR DEAR FATHERS

They say to us, I want to give you the best of myself…

Better than what my father gave…

So, you don't suffer as I did…

So, you don't face a duplicate of my hardship …

Your life easier, more comfortable,  more pleasurable. 

 

Our fathers strive  hard to give us the ease of the Dunya.

They raise us upon such life and belief.

Then, we recline comfortably in the couches of comfort…

Perceiving it the norm of life…

The norm of 'a good life'.

 

When the trial strikes…

Just a nugget of hardship  weighs on us like mount Uhud.

So, we're weak, we stagger, we stray far from the Sahabah.

She just can't marry the student of knowledge…

For the modest life is a life of torture to her.

 

He keeps failing in his attempt to be a student of knowledge…

For jihad means 'live hard' to him, and the mosquitoes are just unbearable.

These brushes of bruises are a deep gash on us.

In truth, our fathers harm our aakhiroh…

For we dive too deep into the ocean of Dunya.

 

It would have been better if they had said to us…

"I'll teach you the hardships of life"...

"That you may be the commander of an army..."

"While I was less of a soldier".

 

For what does the commander fear of the enemy ?

Approaching  him firm and fierce faced…

He's still a winner both ways…

Whether he kills the enemy or dies a shaheed…

And when the pleasure comes

He's the master.

 

Unlike our case;

We have become the slave.

Opposing the words of the Messenger:

'BE IN THIS  WORLD AS A STRANGER'.
